The location of the hotel is bad! A long distance in the middle of... a garden? The rooms are old but clean. The swimming pool is very small and not so clean. Service is less, but especially the kitchen is not OK. The food is really bad! Also important: the food is so expensive! More than $72,00 for an 3-gang...

Moivaro lodge A driver picked us up at the airport after a 20-hour trip to Tanzania. Approaching the lodge, we turned off the main paved road onto a rutted dirt road filled with people and tired looking shops. We were somewhat apprehensive about what our accommodations would be like. We passed through the front guarded gate and rode up to...

The staff was wonderful, Anything was available when you asked except ice, but I got over it and spent the time in Africa drinking warm drinks. It was very relaxing, had 2 massages, learned to play Boi?, as well as had hot whenever I wanted. Food was very good and will go back if ever in Arusha.

I wish I had more positive a more positive review because the potential for a great experience is definitely there. The Hotel/Coffee Plantation is located just outside of Arusha - after traveling down a winding dirt road off a main thoroughfare. The grounds feature beautiful trees, plants, charming little cottages and swimming pool. Even the main lobby is conducive to...

We stayed there at the beginning of our Safari and at the end. What a nice place, you would never know this place existed, when driving down the windy bumpy road.

What a treasure to find right outside of Arusha. When you first are driving down the the rutty dusty road, do not be fooled. Once inside the property a beautiful lodge awaits with wonderful people inside to greet and help you. All of the rooms are separated from the main lodge giving each guest a private cottage of their own....

We stayed here one night in the middle of our photo safari and found it clean, comfortable and relaxing with beautiful grounds. It was the dry season so the pool, which is not heated, was too cold to enjoy, but would be very refreshing in the wet (and warmer) season. The service was good, but when I asked to borrow...

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
