With their banana leaf ceilings and grass roofs, the suites provide an intimate and exclusive Crater experience. Each camp has its own sitting and dining areas, with private butlers to provide warm, personal service to each guest. An array of whimsical African touches creates a sumptuous atmosphere that is as elegant and unique as the Crater itself.
Each suite at is decorated with graceful antiques, grand chandeliers and elegant African treasures. The bedroom, sitting room and en suite bathroom have floor-to-ceiling glass windows to make the most of the amazing views of the Crater below. Beaded chandeliers hang above large gilt mirrors, while antiques, raw silk curtains and leather-backed chairs blend harmoniously with African art elements. En suite bathrooms with a dramatic centrepiece of red roses feature spacious showers and chandelier-lit bathtubs.
