On the outskirts of Arusha, overlooking a lush coffee plantation and with easy access to a range of nearby attractions, Legendary Lodge is a superb location to spend a couple of days exploring Arusha, especially if you are looking for a true gourmet experience. The restaurant is renowned for it's superb cuisine, using locally grown and sourced ingredients to create a wonderful array of dishes, all complimented by an excellent wine list. The environment here is very peaceful and relaxed with most guests here to enjoy a few days of down time before or after an exciting safari.
The rooms are all in their own individual cottages dotted around the grounds, with both one and two bedroom options available. The rare luxury of air conditioning is enjoyed in all cottages, as well as complimentary mini-bars, safes, hairdryers and all of the other modern conveniences one would expect. Bathrooms boast showers and freestanding baths to add to the colonial feel that the lodge offers. In the main lodge there are plenty of deep armchairs to sink into with a good book and a lovely wide veranda on which to relax and take in the lovely views, either with a cup of the freshest local coffee you could imagine or perhaps something a little stronger.
Despite the relaxed ambience, there is plenty to keep more active guests occupied during a stay here. Coffee tours are very popular, as are trips to the scenic Arusha National Park just 20 minutes away. Bicycles are available to borrow and there are some lovely trails of varying difficulties to explore. The local villages have some excellent art and craft markets for picking up gifts from and there is also a nearby members club where guests can enjoy complimentary use of the swimming pool and fitness area.
