Nestled at the foot of the wooded slopes of Mount Meru, this unique hotel stands amid coffee plantations on the shores of tranquil Lake Duluti and was originally a working coffee farm.
Designed to echo the traditional style of the colonial coffee farm, which originally stood on this site, Serena Mountain Village - Arusha offers a range of tastefully presented cottage-styled rooms set amid extensive landscaped grounds.
Standing at the gateway to the famous Tanzanian ‘Northern Safari Circuit', the hotel offers a broad range of attractions, which include: walking, mountain biking, canoeing on the lake, and trips to the nearby Arusha and Mount Meru national parks.
The hotel features a stone-built reception with adjoining lounge, library, restaurant, boutique and business centre.
The Lodge stands on the shores of Lake Duluti, 20 kilometres from Arusha and 60 kilometres from Kilimanjaro International Airport.
The rooms and suites are presented in the style of stone-built cottages which are grouped in clusters around a flower-filled central ‘village square'.
Spacious and elegantly presented in classic country-house style, they feature marble bathrooms, double French doors leading out into the gardens, leaded windows, a stylish work or vanity area, and large and comfortable beds.
For families the lodge has a range of family rooms with interconnecting doors, triple rooms, cots and baby-sitting services. Earlier mealtimes are offered for children along with highchairs.
