An eclectic blend of elegant teak paneling, Victorian furnishings and whimsical African touches creates an atmosphere that is as elegant and unique as the crater itself. Steeped in romance, the spacious suites boast floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, while antiques, billowing raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements. Personal butlers discretely cater for each guest’s every need, bringing tea in bed, stoking fireplaces and drawing luxurious bubble baths. Domed dining rooms, with sparkling silver and crystal vie for attention with the huge windows and the awe-inspiring views.
