Situated on the outskirts of Arusha in Tanzania. Beautiful rooms, great conference area, a pool and friendly staff. Fantastic ambiance from the Recption all the way to ones room in chalets. The function hosted about 40 people and the food was great and much fun was had.The music was local and really good. Thank you David. I have no hesitation...

We stayed at the Arusha Coffee Lodge for Three nights, and two different huts. The huts are comfortable and but dated. Monkeys are running around and sometimes they jump on the roof, which is a surprise sometimes.

Myself and some friends booked on for a wine pairing and stay over at The Arusha Coffee Lodge. On arriving at checking we were warmly welcomed by the staff and management and shown to our stunning bungalows/ villas with what can only be described as the best showers in Tanzania. We were later informed that the food and wine pairing...

Unfortunately the coffee lodge was our least favourite stay in the Tanzanian Elewana collection, staying in four different locations throughout our safari. Whilst the reception on arrival was pleasant enough, they were not able to answer our queries and we had to wait until the following morning when the tour guide arrived. Use of the English language was fairly poor,...

We only had lunch here as part of our safari package and it was a nice place to end after a long drive. We ate outside in the garden area and there was a buffet with soup, salad, hot dishes and desserts. A chef was making barbecue chicken and there were fish parcels. The rooms looked nice but we did...

We spent one night after arriving in Tanzania before we started our safari trip. The hotel is very nice with large beautiful rooms. The staff was very friendly. We were sorry for only staying for a short while and I would recommend this for your start in Tanzania!

There's a lot to admire out of this elegant beauty at the slopes of Mt. Meru with its fantastic view. First is the beauty, comfort and tranquility; then the coffee plantations and the adorable plus sneaky colobus monkeys who kept creeping close by once our meal was served. I personally appreciate the service of Mr. Kivuyo who waited on our...

The Arusha Coffee Lodge was very nice, a taste of comfort outside a bustling metropolis. The gallery shopping was pleasant, especially where special folks were producing works of art. We were particularly grateful for the staff's assistance with our very early departure.

We spent overnight at the lodge in the very busy city of Arusha. The lodge is situated on the outskirts of Arusha in the coffee plantation.
