The last rays of the day

After the heat of the day subsides, Ras Kutani offers an oasis of serenity as the last rays of the day slide beyond the horizon.  

Our guests are in their own private paradises; lying on the beach under sun shades reading the last few chapters of their book, meandering along the deserted white sands, coming in from kayaking on the fresh water lagoon, playing bao in the cool of the lounge with a cup of tea or by their private plunge pools with a cocktail in hand.

As hot showers are run and kikoi dressing gowns are donned by our guests, our staff prepare for the evening.  Setting up stunning locations for private dinners, freshly squeezing juice for the daily cocktail and the kitchen is abuzz with the evening's delicious dinner.

It is one of my favourite times of the day - as the birds' song ebbs away and the bush babies' call begins to echo from the hillside; the vast African sky fades to black and thousands of stars begin their nightly progression across the sky.
