Fantastic staff, wonderful food, relaxing vibe, lovely views, super accommodation. Every need was met - managers and staff are just brilliant. Just an hour and half's drive from Dar es Salaam. Highly recommended.

All rooms are spacious. Suite gives more privacy and a plunge pool, which is nice. They also are higher up so involve a number of steps to get there.
