Protea Amani Beach Hotel
is located in the Ras Kutani
area of the Indian Ocean Coast
of eastern Tanzania
Set on a lovely beach about 30km south of Dar es Salaam and immediately to the south of the highly rated Ras Kutani Lodge
, this place really is quite unusual.
In style and layout the lodge is reminiscent of the large Italian-owned beach resorts on Zanzibar. The critical difference is that this place only has a dozen rooms. The whole thing is therefore rather spacious and well equipped ... there is a large swimming pool and even a tennis court down by the beach.
It should be noted that there is no diving in the area and watersports are not generally offered.
Protea Amani Beach Hotel is a really pleasant place, but one which has not been doing so well in recent years. The upside is that it is presently being offered at a very reasonable price and therefore serves as an interesting lower cost alternative to the nearby Ras Kutani Lodge
