Arusha Coffee Lodge


A Tanzanian welcome

On the gently rolling foothills of Mount Meru you’ll find the vibrant town of Arusha. There, on the outskirts, surrounded by one of the country’s largest coffee plantations is Arusha Coffee Lodge.

Designed around the original landowner’s house which dates back to the early 1900s, there are 30 plantation houses each looking out over the lush coffee fields. You’ll find the theme of coffee reflected in the colours and textures throughout the lodge and its cheerful cottages.

Dine at the a la carte restaurant in the main Plantation House, where you’ll also discover an intimate café bistro and a lounge. Each space boasts an open log fire to take the edge off the chilly evening air. The lodge offers plenty of opportunity for relaxation, with an enclosed swimming pool, garden terrace and acres of coffee plantation to discover.
