Legendary Lodge

Set amongst lush tropical gardens on a working coffee farm, Legendary Lodge’s sweet scent alone is enough to give you a spring in your step. Nestled just outside of Arusha, this charming boutique is home to just 6 beautiful cottages that combine contemporary style with luxurious comfort and inspiring views of Mount Meru. Your room is designed with Tanzanian heritage in mind, providing king-size beds that are enveloped by handcrafted artwork of the region. The private land is also home to an old farmhouse that was converted into a bespoke spa, offering rejuvenating treatments for the mind, body and soul.


Just outside of Arusha, Legendary Lodge is perfectly placed for a break before or after a tented safari adventure. With stunning views of Tanzania’s second highest mountain, Mount Meru, this boutique lodge surrounded by lush, green landscapes is a peaceful hideaway. During the day explore the streets of the vibrant city of Arusha as you learn more about the culture and beauty of this East African gem.

Your room

Cosy cottages are dotted amongst beautiful gardens creating the perfect place to relax in complete privacy. Traditional African artwork adorns the walls of your hideaway while colonial style furnishings complement the local pieces. Our favourite spot to unwind after a day of discovery is on your porch with a glass of wine surrounded by nothing but peaceful seclusion.

Why we like it

It can be hard to find a place to escape to that isn’t in the middle of nowhere but at Legendary Lodge you’ll find tranquillity and the city buzz side by side. We fell in love with the simplicity of this boutique hotel and its central location is ideal for those wanting to learn about local practices, so prepare to experience a completely different way of life.
