When we arrived at this lodge on the edge of Arusha, we found beautifu flowers and petals spread over the beds and on the bathroom counter. That typifies the style of this lodge and cottage hotel that sits in the middle of a large plantation. The rooms were very spacious and quiet. The bathroom had plenty of hot water, though...

Dear Torfeh, Thank you for staying with us and posting your feedback. Our lodge is located in only 12 km from downtown Arusha, and as you write, our gardens are quintessential Africa.

Hi stayed 2 nights before a Kili trek and 1 night after. Welcomed with a drink and fast check in. Taken through the lovely manicured gardens to my 'bungalow' - four poster, wood roof, small ensure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Moivaro Coffee Plantation Lodge & Estate, the lodge where you will stay in a charming atmosphere and enjoy every comfort you need. Moivaro Lodge is situated right in the heart of beautiful, natural scenery and yet is only 7 km from the town of Arusha: an ideal spot to enjoy the impressive flora and fauna of East Africa. At Moivaro Lodge we will ensure that you are looked after in a unique, friendly and peaceful manner, helping you to prepare for your safaris and cosseting you on your return in the evening. Our spacious thatched brick cottages are set in a lovely tropical garden, with private verandas ensuring every visitor all the privacy needed. Relax and enjoy the beautiful views of Mount Meru from the comfortable veranda, go for a stroll around the Moivaro property, or laze at the pool nestling in the midst of tropical trees and coffee plants. As a daily activity we arrange the Moivaro Village Walk. A unique opportunity to see everyday life in Tanzania and make closer contact with the local people. You can visit a local banana brewery and sample its beer; or hear the story of a local eccentric, and marvel at the tree house he fashioned for himself. A walk is typically 2 hours long and can involve a climb up Oldonyo Maas Hill for those looking for a more demanding experience. ... more   less
