About The Lodge
While there’s no denying the thrill of being on safari, there are also times when recuperation is needed – either after the international flight to Africa, or to ease the transition back to reality at the end of the vacation. Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge, a luxury Arusha lodge, meets this requirement in style.
Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge provides an oasis of calm and style in the epicentre of the northern Tanzania safari circuit. As this luxury Arusha lodge is set in the heart of a working coffee farm, staying here is an uplifting experience in every way.
The aroma of coffee – whether growing as cherries on the bushes outside each of the beautifully appointed plantation houses or being delivered fresh to be enjoyed on a private verandah – seems to percolate through the air. This is unfiltered safari indulgence, and the perfect way to either begin or end an East African itinerary, yet it also works superbly as an interlude during a longer or multiple-destination trip.
Coffee provides the theme of the lodge, and exploring the farm makes for a fascinating walk. But that’s not the only experience on offer here – days at Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge pass in a wonderful sequence of sensuous moments, from swimming in the enclosed, intimate swimming pool to spending time journaling or reminiscing on the Garden Terrace, surrounded by tropical blooms and birdsong.
The à la carte restaurant elevates dining to a different level, and features an open wood fire for evenings when cool air rolls down the slopes of Mount Meru. The café bistro and lounge also have fireplaces, so there’s always a choice of cosy spots for a meal or a drink.
Beyond the verdant sanctuary of the lodge, the town of Arusha has excellent links to the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater – for when you’re ready to take the plunge again.
