Lake Duluti is a small, welcoming lodge with 18 luxury chalets tucked amongst trees and coffee plants on a 30-acre estate. This peaceful setting lies on the outskirts of Arusha town, conveniently close to Kilimanjaro International Airport - around a 40-minute road transfer away.
Each chalet is constructed from river stone and wood, and set well apart amongst tall indigenous trees. Birds flit through the branches and the scenic crater lake (although not visible) lies just a short walk away. There’s a pretty swimming pool area with cushioned sun loungers, and a spa room where you can book a massage.
Lake Duluti's main lodge has a stylish lounge and an open kitchen. Meals here are a real highlight, with the chef whipping up European and Mediterranean-style dishes from fresh produce grown on the farm. There’s a good selection of South Africa wine and the coffee is locally grown. As for the staff, they really go out of their way to ensure you feel welcome and well taken care of.
All in all Lake Duluti Lodge is a wonderfully relaxing place to recover from your international flight or the early morning starts on your Tanzania safari.
