Arusha Coffee Lodge offers a truly distinctive experience with the opportunity to stay on a working coffee plantation. The lodge is built around the original plantation houses from the early 1900s, and charming shades of that bygone era remain. Here, you’ll not only enjoy the amenities you’d expect from an intimate luxury lodge, you’ll also get to breathe in the scent of freshly roasted beans and get try some of the many tasty blends. The 20 private en-suite chalets, on raised wooden platforms, all feature multi-level bedrooms, a log fireplace, mini-bar, a large balcony with views of Mt. Meru, and even a coffee grinder and percolator to enhance your coffee-estate experience. In the main lodge, you can enjoy delightful meals at Redds African Grillhouse, which offers a tantalizing array of African specialties as well as traditional Tanzanian cuisine. The warm, cozy atmosphere is perfect for cool evenings, yet there are also campfires outside for those wishing to dine alfresco. Though only minutes from the bustle of Arusha, this 2,100-acre escape is a lush, serene and thoroughly relaxed setting. A swimming pool, garden terrace and a friendly, attentive staff add to the welcoming atmosphere of one of Arusha’s premier luxury lodges.
