We recently had a great five night stay here. Before we arrived we were a little worried that it would not live up to all of the rave reviews. We'd previously been to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and the Mahale Mountains and all of the places we had stayed at had been very good and so we were expecting (perhaps... More

Wonderful boutique hotel built on an ecosystem idea. All is built out of the natural materials that helps to feel the nature. Sound of nature is around, no danger animals or insects. Sand beach, no rocks. Hidden resort with different lounges (jetty bar, main restaurant and lounge, tv and game rooms, pool bar and restaurant etc..) and variety of different... More

We stayed here for 8 nights at the end of our honeymoon after safari in Selous and Ruaha, and had an amazing stay. There is something very special about arriving somewhere by speedboat and from that moment on it didn't disappoint! This really is a touch of barefoot luxury in a truly unspoilt place.

Fabulous experience.....a beautiful, serene place. We spent seven days in a beach front room and were spoiled. The staff, setting and food were lovely. It is a perfect place to escape and unwind. We would love to return.
