We arrived from Sweden very late in the evening and got a warm and nice welcome. When wakening up next morning we had a very tasty breakfast from a friendly staff. The Lodge is situated just outside Arusha and was former a coffeeplantation (still in use, you drink their own coffee)
We enjoyed a day by the pool, flowers, green trees, birds, butterflies and the sight of Kilimanjaro made our day perfect.
The staff is extremely nice and service-minded, the food is excellent and you are given a choice of good wines to choose between.
The Lodge consists of a lot of small houses on a slope where it used to be coffeeplants, you have an excellent wiew of the mountains and the garden from every cottage. In every cottage you have a spacios room with a huge bed and a big bathroom.
We loved it and we will definately come back.
