The Plantation Lodge is beautifully landscaped, providing a relaxing, luxurious environment surrounded by coffee plantations and the Green Hills of Africa. Each room is different, but they all offer privacy, quite, comfort and charm. The rooms, as well as the mail lodge are all decorated with splendid antiques and art work from Tanzania. Most ingredients for the meals are grown on the Lodge's grounds, leading to fresh and delicious meals.
The pool has beautiful views of near-by plantations. Wi-fi is available in the main area.
My only complaints were minor. The resident German Shephard barks and, at times, that made it hard to take an afternoon snooze. Also, the accounting system is paper only and several in our group were inadvertantly charged for drinks they never had. So, check your charges carefully at the end of your stay.
Overall, though, this is a beautiful, relaxing and luxurious place to refresh yourself from days in the parks.
