Eunoto RetreatEunoto Retreat
E-unoto Retreat is located at the base of the Rift Escarpment about 10 km from Lake Manyara National Park. It was born as a cooperative project where the Maasai granted the land to build the lodge which is financing a local school, a water well and a hospital. 80% of the staff is recruited from the Maasai village of Ilaturok.

The lodge consists of 25 bungalows built on the concept the maasai house. Each bungalow has an outdoor veranda overlooking the rift escarpment or the little Miwaleni Lake where hippos are often sighted. 4 bungalows have been designed for wheelchaired.

The lodge is completed by the bar and the terrace with lake view, the restaurant, the swimming pool and a curio shop.
By themselves the bungalows are nice and beautiful is the path that passes through a Maasai boma to reach the lodge, but overall we find there's a lack of authenticity. We rarely use E-unoto retreat in our itineraries prefering to book Kirurumu Tented Lodge and Lake Manyara Wildlife as mid-range options, Lemala Camp Manyara as a high specifications camp and Tree Lodge as the most exclusive option in Manyara.
