Spent 2 nights/1 day before starting my safari. The room, grounds, and dining areas were all lovely. Enjoyed visiting with the craftsmen/women at the Shanga workshop on property. Great in-room coffee and breakfast in the restaurant. Arusha Coffee Lodge was a wonderful place to relax after my long flights before going on safari. Leah at Planet Africa Safaris booked the...

In the hustle and bustle of a city of 1.5 million souls, this is a beautiful oasis for a delightful and excellent meal. We ate lunch here, so make no comment on lodging. One can eat inside, outside, or under cover, and enjoy the many courses and dishes offered, of wide variety and excellently prepared. After a pleasant encounter with...

We could have spent more time here than just for lunch. The buffet they offer would satisfy even the pickiest of travelers. We had a wonderful table under an umbrella shade, watching the monkeys scamper across the roofs. Excellent shopping opportunities and if we had time we could of done coffee tour and tasting.

Only stayed one night as part of our organised safari itinerary but it was a gorgeous place. Very authentic looking Plantation rooms, individually set amid beautiful gardens that back on to the coffee plantation. Room had all of the modern amenities and was comfortable and modern. Food and beverage was ok but nothing special. Breakfast service could have been faster....

Included with our safari was a final day lunch at the Arusha Coffee Lodge. When we arrived we were greeted by, it seemed, just about everyone. The setting is lovely, an oasis really, and the food and hospitality was outstanding. The next day, we were looking for a place to have lunch with our Tanzanian hosts, and we decided to...

It's hard to know where to start. We arrived in the evening to the beautiful outdoor reception and welcoming Ice Coffee. The setting is wonderful and the rooms adorable and exquisite. This is a must stay for anyone staying in Tanzania. We were only here for one night before heading onwards to the Serengeti.

Your safari here! The staff is excellent and the rooms just the right blend of luxury and authenticity. The restaurant is very good with an outside dining option during the day. Be sure you have them arrange a car to take you around Arusha...there are great places to buy local crafts.
