Escape the frantic pace of Dar es Salaam by choosing to stay at the luxury Ras Kutani, situated just 35km south of the city. A secluded experience with just nine cottages, four suites and one family suite on-site, all of them made from organic, local materials that blend harmoniously with the landscape and on top of the hill an additional four suites and a family unit.
There is plenty to do here from swimming to walking on the long deserted stretches of pristine beach to getting active on the water in a variety of ways. Explore the indigenous coastal forest with its rare monkey inhabitants or head inland to the local villages for a taste of local culture.
This is an idyllic beach destination with luxury accommodation yet it is close enough to the city so that you can get a feel for contemporary African city living. Dine on fresh seafood and simple yet delicious offerings from the chefs in between spending some serious time unwinding on the beach.
