This property's huts re-create the look of the mud-and-stick homes of the Masai. Accommodations are "beautifully integrated into the surroundings, each maximizing the view" of the UNESCO World Heritage Site crater. The "personal attention" of staff, from "the rose petals placed in a hot bath after safari to the fire built every night by your personal butler, will keep you coming back." Expect pan-African cuisine in the domed dining room.
