Overview – Arusha Coffee Lodge

Nestled beneath the slopes of the majestic Mount Meru, the nearly 15,000-foot sibling to the renowned Kilimanjaro, lie the rolling foothills that house one of Tanzania’s largest working coffee plantations. Just outside the bustling town of Arusha, this area provides one of our most aromatic and delightful stopovers. Arusha Coffee Lodge is a luxurious sanctuary for quality rest, ideal for unwinding before or after the adventures of a Tanzanian safari. The lodge boasts gauze-draped four-poster beds, deep soaking baths, airy terraces, and plush furnishings as lush as the evergreen coffee plants covering the extensive grounds. Conveniently located just three miles from Arusha Airport, you’re always close to a dip in the pool, a restorative massage, or a rich cup of the finest coffee in town. Bean-to-cup has never felt so fabulous.

Individual luxury suites fan out from the main Lodge, which was originally the landowner’s home in the early 1900s. The atmosphere exudes authentic rural elegance, featuring polished wood floors, wicker sofas, and ceiling fans. Each split-level Plantation House boasts a spacious balcony and all the luxurious amenities you’d expect, including a coffee machine stocked with freshly ground local beans. Dining options range from tasty wood-fired pizzas in the bistro to gourmet feasts in the candle-lit ambiance of the upscale Grill Room.

Accommodations at Arusha Coffee Lodge

Surrounded by a vibrant mix of greens, browns, and ochres from the coffee bushes, the gardens of the Lodge are sprinkled with about 30 individual cottages, each offering a spacious, modern, and private oasis. Enjoy the luxury and warmth of your en-suite rainfall shower or relax in the large, bubbly tub. Perhaps it’s time for a glass of the Cape’s finest red wine or a cup of freshly brewed coffee from your backyard. Whatever your choice, we recommend taking a moment to savor the birdsong from the terrace, where a crackling log fire is ready to ward off the chill of the African evening.

The main Plantation House preserves the architectural charm of the original homestead. Inside, you’ll find an a la carte restaurant, an intimate bistro, and a cozy lounge, each with open log fires to suit all moods and appetites. Additionally, a swimming pool, a full spa, and a relaxing garden terrace await your enjoyment.

Activities and Attractions at Arusha Coffee Lodge

Coffee lovers, raise a cup to the journey of the humble bean. Within the grounds of the Lodge, our knowledgeable resident coffee-ista will guide you through the evergreen coffee bushes, explaining how these flavorful fruits—so meaningful to so many—are nurtured, harvested, dried, and roasted.

Outside the Lodge, the bustling town of Arusha offers an engaging excursion. The Maasai market is a fascinating one-stop shop for unique handicrafts made of ebony and redwood. For a thrilling day trip, visit the Ngorongoro Crater, a massive, unbroken volcanic caldera formed two to three million years ago. Today, it spans 100 square miles and plunges 2,000 feet deep. Equally captivating is a day spent exploring Arusha National Park, which boasts a stunning variety of habitats. Discover shadowy montane forests, inquisitive blue monkeys, rainbow-hued turacos and trogons, and the black-and-white colobus monkey—the only place on the northern safari circuit where these delightful creatures can be easily spotted.
