Quiet and relaxing setting, views of Mount Meru from our terrace, beautiful landscaping, pretty pool, great food, excellent service. We were well taken care of by Noel (waiter), Loshiva (manager), and Frank (waiter). I would definitely return.
We spent one night here in transit to Serengeti. Everything was just perfect - food, room and service. The sitting area was very cozy. The staff had prepared a delicious three course meal. The beds were comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend.
