The lodge was nice and comfortable. Good place to stay when in the area. Good WiFi even in the rooms. Because I was with a group I did not get to see much of what they have to offer but it seems they can offer a lot of local activities.

We stayed here as part of a safari in Ngorongoro. After a long day in the Jeeps, the lodge was a great oasis for the evening. Great food, great rooms, great service and wonderful views. I would definitely recommend it and will be returning myself.

Love the hotel and service at this property. Great food, service and pool. Beautiful grounds, well lighted at night. Very comfortable rooms. Walking and running paths are close by so no excuses. Great views of the preserve below.

The hotel is very attractive with an architectural style that fits with the environment. Cleanliness and maintenance are on par with a higher end hotel. There's confusion amongst staff as to duties and it wouldn't surprise me if a survey of staff taken about the quality of management...the score would not be favorable. This may be the best hotel if...

nice lodge, with spacious and silent rooms overlooking lake manyara. Good buffet for lunch, dinner and breakfast with a wide range of choice. Staff is super friendly; we traveled as a group with many kids and they helped us in any way possible to make our stay comfortable. Great infinity pool with bar

We stayed at the lodge for one night and had a lovely time. The food was okay and not as great as the Serena's we have stayed in Kenya. The view is amazing. Had a great time with the lodge and is worth staying a night here.

Nice hotel for a brief stay while touring the country on a safari holiday. Not a place where you could spend a week on vacation. Good food, but limited service in the restaurant. Clean and comfortable bedrooms. It serves it's purpose well.

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
