Tanzania: Meliá Hotels & Resorts has opened Meliá Serengeti Lodge Tanzania
Meliá Hotels & Resorts has announced the launch of Meliá Serengeti Lodge, Tanzania.
Meliá Serengeti Lodge is Meliá’s first sustainability-focused hotel. It is located in the Serengeti National Park, the oldest National Park in Tanzania, on the western border of Lake Victoria.
The hotel has been designed with preservation of the surrounding environment in mind. 45% of the energy that powers the lodge is generated by solar panels. The hotel has taken further steps to cut energy usage on the property through its design, which allows the easterly bush breeze to cool rooms naturally.
Members of the Maasai tribe work at the lodge, making up the majority of the security team as well as several other in-hotel positions, providing the property with operational advice based on their understanding of the Serengeti.
The property features a pool, fitness centre, TV room and spa, and three luxury categories of room. There are three restaurants: The Savannah All Day Dining and The Savannah Grill, which offer African, Mediterranean and Oriental cuisine. Boma restaurant is a fine dining experience showcasing Tanzanian food.
