Mountain Village Arusha

Mountain Village Arusha

The forested slopes of Mount Meru are the backdrop to the Mountain Village Hotel, which stands amid the coffee plantations on the shores of Lake Duluti.

The hotel is styled along traditional colonial lines and is purposely reminiscent of the farmhouse that originally stood here. The reception is stone-built and houses the bar and restaurant. It leads to the lounge, library, restaurant, boutique, and business centre. Not to be missed are the wonderful garden terraces from which to explore and enjoy the extensive flower gardens and lawns. Cuisine includes local and international dishes, and weekend buffet events are held on the broad open-air terraces.

Accommodation is in a range of tastefully decorated rondavels, grouped in clusters in the hotel gardens. Both twin and superior rooms are available. The décor is country house with comfortable beds, marble bathrooms, leaded windows, and french doors leading to balconies from which guests will enjoy magnificent views of the imposing snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro.

The Mountain Inn is at the gateway to the famous Tanzanian “Northern Safari Circuit” and offers a range of activities and attractions. Lake-side walks to see the Colobus monkeys and the abundant bush life are a favorite. The locale is agreeable to other outdoor activities sucah as mountain biking, canoeing , exploring the crater laks of nearby Arusha National Park, and even embarking on an ascent of Mount Meru or the legendary Kilimanjaro. The area around the lake is a bird-watchers paradise and more than 130 bird species have been recorded.

After days of adventure, enjoy sundowners or dinner by the lake. Or pamper yourself with luxurious beauty treatments or a massage.
