We stayed at the Arumeru River Lodge 2 nights before our safari and 1 night at the end of our safari. Our room (Bamboo 1) for the first 2 nights was much more spacious and overall much nicer than the room we received on our last night. Some rooms are newer than others, so I'm assuming Bamboo 1 was one of the newer rooms.
There can sometimes be issues with not enough hot water, but at other times, it's abundant. It might be because of the frequent electricity outages. The internet can also be slow and I wish they did not charge for it.
But overall, I really enjoyed our stay. I love the dik-diks and other animals they have on the property. The food is generally good and it's a nice and relaxing place to have a Safari beer and talk over your day.
The German couple who own it left corporate jobs in Germany for Arumeru River Lodge and have been learning what to do as they go along. I think they're definitely heading in the right direction.
We spent our first night in the area in a hotel in Arusha so we could visit the city before making our way to Arumeru River Lodge. It's not a good place to stay if you want to visit the city itself. But for a relaxing stay, this is a good place.
