Ras Kutani is situated in an idyllic position right on the Indian Ocean, and overlooking a fresh water lagoon. This lovely hideaway with its deserted beaches, fringed with coral reefs and cooling trade winds, is the ideal place to relax and unwind in complete peace. The main area under a high makuti (palm thatch) roof is furnished with huge sofas and colourful beach cushions. From the open sides you have a stunning view over the palms to the beach.The restaurant serves superb seafood, fresh from the sea as well as a wide variety of international dishes.

The nine beach and lagoon cottages are tucked along the edge of the lagoon in amongst the tropical forest. Built of natural materials to harmonise with the setting, they offer luxurious, comfortable interiors with en suite bathrooms and large, walk-in mosquito nets over the beds. Each cottage has a private veranda furnished with comfortable loungers and hammocks. Children over the age of six are welcome, and with the services of nannies and safe swimming available in the lagoon, this is an ideal spot for families.

In addition, Ras Kutani offers four suites positioned on top of the hill overlooking the beach and lagoon. Each suite has a plunge pool and two of the suites can be used as a family unit.

Boogie boarding, kayaks and snorkelling are readily available. Horse riding is also available at a neighbouring farm.
