Superb 9.2 From 11 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice stay in Arusha
Very nice stay just outside of the downtown of Arusha city. It's quiet, comfortable and the property is absolutely gorgeous. Provides a relaxing stay and a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of Arusha. We flew into Kilimanjaro airport and the lodge arranged our shuttle ride (for extra). It took about 80 minutes to get to the lodge given new speeding laws that were recently put into place but overall it was an easy process. The staff took extra care with our room since this was the start of our honeymoon and we really enjoyed our time there. From there we headed to a safari in the Serengti but we arranged to have some laundry ready for our return which it was. Staff was always open and accommodating when we needed it including a later departure time from the hotel. WiFi is a bit spotty (as in most properties in Tanzania from what I've seen), but works well in the lobby and restaurant. Great stay even for a short period.
