Lovely place to stay at, clients can enjoy the atmosphere having a welcoming relaxed environment and the view of the Great Rift Valley from the hotel is always lovely watching the sunrise and the hills around and the magnificent Lake Manyara

Another luxurious lodge with super helpful staff. We had a beautiful room over looking the lake and had the most beautiful meals. The pool was amazing and had an infinity edge over the lake. Top notch.

This place is so beautiful!! If you book this place try to get here before 5:00 so you can watch the amazing sunset at the cliffside pool. It closes at 6:30 (too early). Or have your morning coffee while looking out at the crater by the pool. The people are sweet and the food is good. The rooms and decor...

We stayed here as part of our Safari tour. What a surprise this lodge was. A first class lodge if ever there was one. It is located on the edge of the Great Riff Valley with spectacular views. Everything about it was wonderful from the rooms, the views, the infinity pool and the staff. The meals were buffet with a...

This is the most amazing hotel I've ever stayed in. The views are breath taking and i could have stayed here forever. There are monkeys wandering around the hotel grounds which were great to watch with a few beers. Make sure your door is locked, they can work the handles! Food was good and staff lovely. Wifi was available. Only...

This was a first-class hotel from the architecture to the infinity pool, to the cocktail lounge to the restaurant. We had a great stay in the middle of safari and we both had a great night's sleep. The food was wonderful and the service even better. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Me and my two teenage kids spent one night at this hotel. I have read some of the reviews, especially those who rate low. Our Tanzania adventure was not inexpensive, but all the same, it is Tanzania and Africa, thus I "adjust" my expectations are accordingly. I think I spend above average number of days in hotels per year than...

We stayed here at the end of our safari for two nights. The view from our room was very good - over the pool and lake in the distance. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Beware of close encounters with baboons who also like to have a drink from the pool. I had a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Taking as its muse the glorious bird life of the fabulously soda-encrusted and pink flamingo-fringed...Lake Manyara, the swooping curves of this elegantly evocative lodge defy description. As do the soaring views over the Great Rift Valley, the rose-gold sunsets over the Mto Wa Mbu escarpment and the utterly unique tree climbing Lake Manyara lions. ... more   less
