The lodge has the double luxury of being right next to a freshwater lagoon and literally a stone's throw from the warm Indian Ocean with a beautiful beach of soft white sand.
Lush tropical undergrowth, palm trees and colourful bourganvillia engulf Ras Kutani. The 12 cottages and 4 suites are constructed from natural materials, which blend so well into the environment that you hardly know it is there.
This lodge is one of those Tanzania resorts that boast its own private veranda with ocean or lagoon views, and you decide whether to just relax or take part in numerous water sports. There is even the option of going horse riding through indigenous coastal forests inhabited by monkeys. At Ras Kutani you feel as if you are on your own tropical island.
