Tanzania

Ras Kutani

PLAN MY TRIP

Just fifteen miles from the city of Dar es Salaam, Ras Kutani is a luxurious oasis of peace sandwiched between the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and a freshwater lagoon.

Nine beach cottages lie scattered around the main building boasting ocean views and breezes. The cottages are furnished with a double bed draped in billowing mosquito netting, a fan, and an en suite bathroom. A private veranda sits under the shade of a thatched roof with comfortable kikoi seating and relaxing hammocks. The camp’s four suites are secluded on the hillside and come with a sultan double bed, a private plunge pool, and plenty of seating to enjoy the panoramic views down to the azure seas below. For families, the Hill House is made up of two spacious en suite rooms, linked by an expansive terrace with built in seating, and ocean views.

The hotel is ideally located on the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean near Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania. The city’s name means “Haven of Peace”. Peace can be easily attained on the pristine beaches nestled against virgin coastal forest. The beach stretches out into open water with weak currents which are perfect for swimming. The nearby city of Dar es Salaam was built in 1865 or 1866 by Sultan Majid bin Said of Zanzibar on the edge of the Indian Ocean, the city fell into decline only to be revived by the German East Africa Company in 1887. It then passed to British rule after World War I, and finally received independence in 1961.

With the warm and gentle waters of the Indian Ocean beckoning, there are plenty of water based activities. Complimentary snorkel gear lets guests explore the shipwreck of the The Chyko, a cargo vessel built in the 1900s, which lies just off shore. Kayaks and boogie boards are also available. Other activities include beach volleyball, boules, or just soaking up some sun. A forest walk is perfect for viewing over 132 different species of trees, a colorful array of beautiful butterflies and the antics of three species of monkey, including the spectacular black-and-white colobus. Seasonally, guests can witness the amazing spectacle of the green turtle hatchlings making their way across the beach to the ocean.

The main buildings house an open-air lounge, bar, and restaurant with a large terrace and a ceiling of African stars. The delicious cuisine features fresh, locally caught, seafood with delicately spiced flavors as well as yummy barbecues accompanied by an appetizing variety of fresh salads and delectable desserts. While the camp’s spa helps guests unwind.
