Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge
Elewana’s Arusha Coffee Lodge is situated on the fertile grounds of one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations. It is a peaceful sanctuary right on the doorstep of the vibrant town of Arusha. The lodge is made up of a main area incorporating a spa, swimming pool, restaurant and a café bistro. Sit back in the cozy lounge and enjoy the open log fires to warm you from the cool night air.
Accommodation consists of 12 Plantation Suites (spacious, modern yet homely retreats) and 18 Plantation Rooms (cosy and comfortable) set among the coffee trees. The theme of coffee permeates throughout the lodge, reflecting in the colours and textures of the delightfully comfortable accommodation with its beautifully appointed en-suite bathrooms.
