Arusha Villa offers a relaxing and beautiful environment in the centre of a coffee plantation. The rooms are spacious, and guests can sit around the terraces and walk the gardens. The view over the green and lush valley is stunning. This is also the view from the swimming pool and often you will see the monkeys play around in the nearby trees. Breakfast is included and served in the restaurant. We also offer lunch and dinner, and a lunchbox when you go on safari after your stay with us. Our garden view rooms offer a quiet and relaxing atmosphere in the midst of the coffee plants. You will be surprised by the number of birds that you can find here.

It is hard to imagine that a short distance from chaotic Arusha is this peaceful oasis. The lush garden and pool are the perfect place to relax. In our case the weather was not the best but we were able to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace on the porch. Before dinner it was fun to relax by the firepit with monkeys jumping in the tree branches around. Also noteworthy was the excellent dinner served by the staff. Definitely recommended.

Beautiful and tranquil place on a former coffee plantation. Staff is extremely kind and helpful. Food is incredible. Arusha Villa offers a good choice of local food with delicious vegetarian options for diner. Rooms are clean and spacious with very nice interior design. This is a place you don’t want to leave.

My name is Ana Gomes, I'm from Portugal and had the pleasure to stay one night at the Arusha Villa Karamu Coffee Estate with my husband Jorge Gomes after 3 flights from Portugal and before starting our safari. The room was absolutely perfect, very comfortable and with a beautiful view with Mount Kilimanjaro on the horizon, perfect to rest after spending more than 24 hours between flights. The hotel surroundings are very green, very well treated and we feel that we are in a beautiful peaceful place, very silent, very quiet, like time as froze. The staff are always with a smile, very kind, helpfull, generous and very thoughtful, always very available to everything we needed. The food was very good and we experienced a lot of flavours. The fireplace spot is perfect to spend some time after dinner and with the company of the dog hotel. Asante Sana!

Beautiful scenery in a manor style grounds. Welcoming staff, delicious food, spacious rooms with wooden beam ceilings, large windows, and concrete floors to keep cool will have you wanting more time here. Blue Monkeys greet you each day.

Arusha Villa is the best place to start your holiday in Tanzania. It has very greens surrounding so a lot (animals, plants, trees) can be seen from your room. Even blue monkeys are a common site in the garden of Arusha Villa! The food is good and the staff is very friendly. The room was amazing. Felt like a 5 star hotel. I highly recommend to book a nature walk with Abdul Jumanne. He has a lot of knowledge about the surroundings and is a professional birdwatcher.

Arusha Villa is a lovely quiet hotel with big comfortable rooms, great food, friendly staff, and a splendid view. In the evening blue monkeys play in the trees next to the swimming pool. They also offer hikes in the nature around the hotel. We went bird watching with Abdul, which was really great.

We only had one night here but it was a lovely stay! We were able to squeeze in a tour of the grounds where they grow their coffee trees. The facilities were clean and the people were really nice and helpful.

We travelled for two weeks in Tanzania, stayed in many lodges but arusha villa is the winner. Spacious rooms, fantastic beds, excellent views, a great pool, extremelu friendly staff and a kitchen of high quality. What more would you want? Make sure to stay more than 1 night, it is a great place to start or end tour safari!

My sister and I arrived here late in the evening after a grueling airport experience (covid protocols) and sketchy drive on dark roads, What a slice of heaven this place is when exhaustion and anxiety almost had me wanting to return to the States! Incredibly warm staff greeted us and fed us a delicious dinner at 11pm! The fresh cooked zesty pesto pasta is a dish I still crave. Our server was Aron. He is beyond amazing. We stayed two nights (our flight itinierary was pretty exhausting and I wanted to start the safari well rested) and Aron made sure we were always well taken care of. Our room had large bed and a single bed. Very lovely and roomy layout. The grounds are not large, but well laid out. The pool is very pretty, but freezing. We braved it for a few laps anyway. Aron brought roasted nuts and beer to us poolside. I would love to return to Arusha Villa.
