Perfect retreat to end an adventure across the Serengeti.
Surrounded by lush gardens, we were greeted in a very cordial manner and were offered wet towels. Our rooms were designed like cottages with a beautiful seating area in the balcony that overlooked Karatu's green bliss. It's tough not to fall in love with the way the cottages are designed. Each one is uniquely designed in warm colors, wodden floors, painted bathrooms, outdoor/indoor shower, bathtub, fire place...
Considerable attention to details. It is evident all over such as the way the toilet paper was packed in cloth sack, locally made slippers in the hotel room, the utensils in the dining room, table cloth, kitchen ware, jug full of boiled water placed in the bathroom, art work, blankets, chandeliers, exotic flowers in the garden and fruit trees....even avocado!
The best part of my stay was the sound of the rain. It was all so natural!
Overall it was a pleasant stay and wish we stayed an extra nights to fully enjoy the facilities. I would have loved to try out their spa, but unfortunately there was no time.
