My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in January of this year. The property itself and the setting is truly unique. Set on the rim of the crater the views are amazing. The rooms are uniquely decorated with very cosy with a wonderful fireplace and cute balcony from which to
sit and gaze down into the crater. The one thing that I have never experience in any other place I have stayed was the massive, absolutely beautiful displays of roses of all colours that were placed everwhere. An amazing display beside our bathtub, in the entrance to the main lodge,
on all the dinning tables. The centre of the dinning tables were filled with rose petals as was our bath mat whenever we returned to our room from dinner. Nothing was ever brought to our room without roses. They are apparently grown in Aursha and they gave the Lodge a magic, luxurious feel. The atmosphere in the dinning room was wonderful as were the staff. We had a hot chocolate with liquor brought to our room each night after dinner to have in front of the fire.
It was the end of our 4 week trip to Africa and we had had amazing safari experiences at Londolozi and Singita Ebony in South Africa and Singita Sabora tented camp in Tanzania so we were able to take in our stride the disappointment we felt with the guide we had been assigned at Ngorongoro. We ended up only going down into the crater once and thus have given a very good rating rather than an excellent . However it gave us the opportunity to enjoy and make the most of the Lodge.
