Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge


A stylish Tanzanian retreat, set in the grounds of a coffee plantation in the foothills of Mount Meru

Part of the exclusive Elewana Collection, a portfolio of properties chosen for their secluded locations and unique style, the Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge is a sanctuary of relaxation and luxury in Northern Tanzania. An idyllic retreat for before or after an African safari, this is an exceptionally stylish and comfortable lodge, nestled in a sprawling coffee plantation on the outskirts of Arusha. Set in a great location, make the most of the lodge's fantastic surroundings and head into Arusha to explore the Maasai Market, or visit the stunning wildlife in Arusha National Park or at the UNESCO-listed Ngorongoro Crater. If you'd rather just spend some time relaxing at the lodge, there's a serene outdoor pool and tranquil spa to explore, or you could enjoy a guided tour of the plantation, learning the fascinating process to making coffee or visiting the Trader's Walk, the lodge's boutique collection of Tanzanian shops and gourmet eateries.

The lodge is situated around the original plantation home, a charming house that dates back to the early 1900s. Within the house, you'll find a delicious restaurant and an all-day dining bistro, while outside a charming garden terrace provides the perfect setting for a spot of al fresco dining. Rooms and suites are spread across the coffee fields, and are beautifully stylish and welcoming retreats. Whitewashed walls and exposed wooden beams convey a delightful old-world charm, while a cosy log fire and split-level lounge areas create a wonderfully snug and relaxing ambiance.
