The property is on an old coffee plantation. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff is friendly. Food and drinks were good. We did have a bad experience with the billing. They advertise one rate on the web, but when we had to make a change, they charged us that each "per person" - not happy with that.... More

Our visit here was arranged as a complete surprise by our tour operator, Calabash Adventures, so I really had no prior expectations. The access from the main road is pretty non-descript, and the entrance is reasonably ordinary. As soon as we arrived, however, the excellent customer service became apparent, as several members of staff came out to greet us, take... More

My wife and I and our two older daughters rented two cabins at the Lake Duluti Lodge for three nights while we explored some of the sights in the Arusha area (including Arusha National Park). I originally though that the remote location of the lodge outside of Arusha would be a detriment--since we could not walk into town. However, after... More

One of the hardest things to deal with on a trip to Africa are the long flights. We recently returned from a trip to Tanzania which began with an arrival at the Kilimanjaro airport.

We stayed here on both ends of our 7 day Safari at the advice of our Safari company.

Twin rooms are nice and spacious. Beds are comfortable with mosquito nets. The bathroom is well equipped but the shower head lets down the whole thing. You have to keep moving to get wet and the pressure is good but with the bad shower head it squirts in the wrong places. The food at the lodge is amazing. Last year... More

We stayed for 2 nights prior to safari. The lodges are private and the decor is high-end.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lake Duluti Lodge is a fine countryside retreat that perfectly combined an authentic African rural setting with outstanding amenities and service. The lodge is made up of 18 spacious contemporary African styled romantic chalets ideally positioned for maximum privacy inside an active coffee farm on the outskirts of Arusha. Guests can enjoy delicious, hearty meals prepared with fresh produce from the lodge's vegetable garden. Sunbeds dotted around the inviting infinity pool are perfect for a lazy afternoon. The Lakeshore Sundowner Lounge located at the edge of the shimmering lake is an idyllic spot for guests to savour refreshing drinks and light lunches. There is a lot to Experience with Lake Duluti Lodge for those guests in need of relaxation can head to the massage and Spa room for a bout of pampering or rather go for tours to coffee plantations, vegetable farms and cultural villages, hiking, bird watching, canoeing, nature walks and day trips to Mt Kilimanjaro are enough to keep the adventurous happy. ... more   less
