Our stay at the lodge was our last night of our Tanzania safari. The lodge , though located outside the park has good views of the lake. There are 4 room two storey cottages spread across the compound. Rooms are decent sized with comfortable beds. Some cottages can be at quite a distance from the dining area and main reception...

View is gorgeous and sunset is serene. Nice cottage rooms with lovely views. Food is quite good. The animals are not as plentiful as some other parks, but still delightful to observe. Infinity pool is lovely. Entertainment at cocktail hour is energetic fun.

The lodge at Lake Manyara was clean and beautiful. We needed to get some laundry done, and they did a huge bag full for only about $10.00! We put it out in the morning, and it was delivered to us that night. Every night they have entertainment, which makes it very fun to be there. Just make sure when you...

Generally Lake Manyara is worth a half day game drive but it is the place to see all the birds and get great shots of them. The hotel has a nice infinity pool setup and some shows including acrobatic show in the afternoon. We only stayed one night since it was on our way out of the country but the...

We stayed here on a family holiday in July 2015. We had 2 interconnecting rooms which had free WIFI. The speed of the WIFI was ok. The rooms were of decent size and the bathroom was also OK. The rooms had all the modern amenities (no A/C) but since we were staying in the winter time there was no need....

We stayed here just for 1 night.. Nice cottage..very good view of lake manyara.. Good breakfast, lunch & dinner.. Many choice for vegetarians .. This resort is quite good with a super view and well maintained garden etc.. But... Nothing much to see in Lake Manyara.. No much wild life here anymore ..

Great visit. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are clean and spacious. Food is good. the only complaint I have is there is hardly any hot water. Would stay again though and recommend to others. The view from the pool is also really amazing.

We arrived after nightfall and were allocated #50 we saw the great view the next morning but it would have been better but for the early morning mist. Always try to get your arrival before the sun goes totally down if only doing a one nighter. We have stayed in Kenyan Serena's and the accommodation, food and service was 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
