The flashiest place in Mwanza has lake views and large, well-appointed rooms with acacia-tree murals on the walls. There's a good pool, and one of the best Indian restaurants in town (mains Tsh12,000 to Tsh20,000). Larger groups or families can ask about the adjoining rooms that make suites. Smoking allowed on the balconies only.
