New in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park: The Bilila Lodge Kempinski

July 28, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Bilila Lodge KempinskiA new luxury lodge has opened its doors in Serengeti National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site, with the President of Tanzania presiding at the official opening ceremony. With an infinity pool overlooking an active waterhole with the plains as a backdrop, the Bilila Lodge Kempinski promises an indulgent experience surrounded by the wonders of the African Bush. The Independent (UK) reports:

The hotel is, without caveats, a five-star experience despite the remote location. That means hot showers, air-conditioning, food and drink to cater to western tastes, super-attentive service and spotless hygiene. The tech facilities (24/7 WiFi for iPhone and crackberry addicts, and dozens of satellite TV channels) are slick enough to be disorienting. It's Africa, Jim – but not as many of us know it.

The hotel's 74 guest rooms are richly decorated with African artwork; some offer private teak decks for game viewing. An array of spa treatments are available at the on-site Anantara spa. Take advantage of a special introductory offer where you can "Stay 3, Pay 2." Available until September 30, 2009.
