Accommodation at Ras Kutani
Ras Kutani’s nine spacious cottages and four suites are handcrafted using natural, local materials. Ethnic furnishings are in keeping with the rich cultural heritage of the Tanzania coast, using turquoises that reflect the colours of the ocean. Each cottage at Ras Kutani has its own en suite bathroom and large veranda with views of the azure ocean. The suites at Ras Kutani lie high on the hill with great sea views and private plunge pools. Each has a massive double bed, ambient lighting, en suite bathroom, large dressing area and outside the veranda is furnished with Swahili daybeds and hammocks.
The kitchen at Ras Kutani prides itself on preparing fresh local fish and seafood. When the sea is calm, the lagoon reflects the evening light in mirror image, creating a gentle shimmering backdrop for romantic dinners under the stars at Ras Kutani.
Beachside cottagesOur nine beach cottages are scattered on either side of the main building, all with ocean views and gentle breezes. Under the thatch, a spacious veranda unfurls with comfortable kikoi seating and lazy-making hammocks. The hard wood shutters lead through to the beautifully decorated interiors; the majestic double bed and fan surrounded by a billowing mosquito net and on to the generous ensuite bathroom.
Upepo SuitesPerched on the hillside and offering definitive privacy, are four secluded suites. Steps from the main building take guests deeper into the coastal forest, to their own secluded hideaway, where the only company you have are the chattering monkeys. The cascading panoramic view down to the ocean is the quintessential tropical backdrop to the private plunge pool and array of outside seating. The interiors are lusciously spacious and when the morning tea tray arrives, lie back in the vast Sultan double bed and let your eyes drift across the fluttering white curtains towards the azure seas below.
Hill HouseThe perfect way to end a family holiday is a stay at our family house. As the name suggests, it too is situated above the main camp with blissful sea views. The house comprises of two spacious ensuite rooms, linked by an expansive terrace with built in seating; an ideal space to swap holiday stories and enjoy each other’s company.
