This was our 1st safari lodge, my only comment was there were no tea/coffee making facilities, but this was the only lodge that we stayed in that did not have them. Rooms were fantastic, the view is to die for, infinity pool overlooking the nature reserve, you do have to share it with a family of baboons though, meals were...

Really lovely room with quality wooden furniture, great views, amazing live entertainment (acrobats, music and dance). Great place for baboons and usually for flamingos, though the flamingos had gone elsewhere at the time we were there... Large room with quality fittings. Recommended.

Rooms, service and location all excellent. Restaurant food also very good. But the location makes this a unique and special place to stay. Views from the gardens and from the infinity pool were stunning. Ideal for a visit to the Lake Manyara National Park.

Enjoyed our first night stop. Negatives: Hole in the mosquito nets, did report to staff. No tea/coffee in room. Positives: Location, very picturesque! You can do nature walks and other activities from this lodge, although we did not have time to try them out. Pool was great with a fantastic view, and views from the rooms good. We enjoyed a...

After driving from Arusha, viewing the most awesome amount of game we booked into the lodge, again all pre organized, our room was large, with a huge double bed and glorious views overlooking the manyara scenery. Most people headed straight for the beautiful infinity pool, but I headed straight to the masseuse on the premises, to indulge in an hour...

A wonderful spot on the edge of the Great Rift Valley and convenient for visiting Lake Manyara National Park. Last visited here about five and a half years ago and delighted to find the food and standards of service as good as ever. The poolside bar has one of the best views and evening entertainment. Next morning was even better...

Views from the infinity pool, eating area and lodges all overlook Lake Manyara national park which is very beautiful. Towels are provided by the pool, and many of the birds come down to drink/wash in the pool which is nice to sit and watch in the sun. A great place to relax while on safari. The lodge was really quite...

We recently stayed at the Lake Manyara Serena Lodge as part of a Vantage Travel safari tour in Kenya and Tanzania. The lodge is situated on a cliff overlooking the Rift Valley, Lake Manyara and the Lake Manyara National Park. The lodge has an "infinity" swimming pool that also overlooks the valley - most impressive! The lodge itself is beautiful,...

This is our last stop in Tanzania and it was very relaxing. Every villa contents 4 rooms and they are very spacious. Grass is used a lot in the hotel decoration especially the bar and lobby which makes them stylish. Choice of food is limited.

The room is nice and spacious, and in the morning when you wake up go to your patio and you will see baboons enjoying them self. The view from our balcony was to die for especially during the morning sunrise The infinity pool has a great view. After a long drive from one park to another the room give you...

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
