First Stop in Tanzania, Sept 2021
We arrived in in Tanzania late in the evening. We were transported by our guide Abu to the Arusha Coffee Lodge. We were greeted by the staff with a hot sweet drink and a warm washcloth. We somehow were wide awake even though we had been traveling from the US. The Bartender and Chef offered us a menu and wine list. Even though it was really late they served up amazing small plate dishes and wine. At almost 2am we headed off to sleep. The room was excellent and very quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was also very good. Coffee, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, breads and hot plates to order. We only stayed one night but I would recommend to anyone. The staff was so friendly and very helpful during our entire stay.
Arusha Coffee Lodge was a great first stop on our honeymoon! We landed around 8:30pm and by the time we got through Covid rapid testing and visa checks it was closer to 10PM (and we were some of the first people off the plane). The lodge was about an hour/hour and 15 minutes from the airport mostly just because the speed limit is slow. Despite our late arrival, there were many staff members around to check us in and carry our bags to our room. They also offered to have food for us in the lounge/bar area if we were hungry. We intended to go back and have a snack after putting our things down but didn't need to because there was champagne, cookies, doughnuts, and fruit in our room waiting for us so we enjoyed that instead. We only stayed the one night and left reasonably early the next morning to start our safari but the room was beautiful; very clean and comfortable and just what we needed to sleep any potential jetlag away and and have a much needed shower. Everything was exactly what we needed after 24 hours in airports and planes. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff again carried our bags for us and put them in our car once our transfer arrived. Another added benefit is that the Arusha airport is 5 minutes away where I believe everyone leaves from to head to safari. Heading right to safari 12 hours after landing in a country that takes a day to travel to may be a very daunting task, but thankfully it was doable because of such a smooth arrival and first night stay at the Coffee Lodge!
Arusha Coffee Lodge was our first stay in Tanzania. The lodge is located around 2 hours from Kilimanjaro International Airport. The property is incredible well groomed and all staff is super friendly. The rooms and bathrooms are huge and all is kept super clean. Out of 6 lodges we stayed at, I definitely rank this lodge the best food and beverage. Even though the menus for breakfast and dinner (included in fullboard) do not change, they have 100% mastered those dishes. Also they grow their own coffee beans, and the coffee is by far the best around. I cannot recommend staying here enough. We had a wonderful stay.
Great End For Safari
We checked in here just for a day at the end of our 2 week Safari and it was worth every penny! The rooms and property are gorgeous and a wonderful place to relax before a long flight. The staff was lovely and food was great. It was an excellent end to an amazing trip and made our travel experience more enjoyable. And - we loved watching the resident monkeys from our porch!
Lovely end to a Safari
This has been our 2nd trip to Tanzania and our second stay at this gret lodge. The warm hospitality has not changed and the staff are very welcoming. The lunch meals that we have had were of a very high quality! The rooms around the coffee trees added to the tranquilty and relaxation that the lodge has. Wonderful experience
