We arrived to find a beautiful clean lodge in Arusha . The staff were amazing - doing their utmost to accommodate any request . Food was well prepared and the different eating venues were clean and well managed . The rooms are larger than most and the finishes are superior to most other lodges. The grow most of their own vegetables in the gardens . Fresh coffee is made from their own beans grown in the garden . The are the Lodge is in is safe and secure.

I've been traveling to Tanzania for about seven years. I typically don't care where I stay in Arusha and I just book something to have something. But then this time, our guide put us here in a day room while we waited for our evening flights. What an oasis this is. We had a great lunch, shower, and then we were whisked away to the airport. I'll be back, though, now that I know this place is here. It's so light and airy. Just having lunch here is a pleasure.

We stayed here just one night prior to kicking off our 3 week safari. Despite our late arrival, the service and welcome we received was wonderful. After a few beers, a great nights sleep, and a delicious breakfast, we were rejuvenated and ready to start our adventure.

Overall Experience: My wife and I stayed at the Kahawa house for one night to kick off our safari during our honeymoon. The hotel grounds are stunning. Everything is perfectly maintained and well decorated. There are several gardens throughout that provide fresh vegetables for meals at the restaurant. This was the perfect way to relax after a long journey. The Staff: From the welcome to the dining experiences all of the service was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and made us feel at home. They were constantly offering different things to make our stay even better. The dining experiences were amazing and it felt like we were in a five star restaurant. The Room: It was stunning and spacious. The decor was beautiful. The bed was large and very comfortable. The bathroom had plenty of space including a shower and separate bath tub. The Food: The meals were phenomenal. After a particularly amazing chicken curry dish we asked to speak to the chef to get the recipe. I would visit this hotel again just for the food.
