Set on a working coffee farm, in mature tropical gardens, on the very outskirts of Arusha, a stone’s throw from the airport, Legendary Lodge is a first class piece of luxury accommodation.
Centred about the main house, a splendidly well looked after colonial build, Legendary Lodge consists of 6 cottage suites and a plethora of shared areas. There are several lounge rooms, where parquet floors and fireplaces mix with sofas and armchairs. There is also a dining room and large covered verandah, where meals are served. The gardens have extensive lawns and a swimming pool and the lodge also offers a spa providing treatments and massages. Decorated in a palate of calm, neutral hues, interspersed with African artifacts and furnished with a mixture of modern and antique pieces, this is a lodge that feels like a home.
Discreetly positioned, the cottages at the Legendary Lodge all have a private lounge space with a fireplace and a bedroom area with king size double beds hung with mosquito nets. Décor compliments that of the main lodge, with white walls and linen offset by dark woods and simple rugs. The cottages have generous ensuite bathrooms and direct dial phone, broadband connection, complimentary mini-bar and fruit basket, as well as their own private verandah, looking out onto the gardens and with views of Mount Meru. Please note that there is also a newly completed two bedroomed cottage with kitchenette and private garden – ideal for a family stay. Alternatively, if seclusion and privacy are not priorities, two doubles rooms are available in the main lodge.
Visitors to the Legendary Lodge report wonderful and attentive service and fantastic meals. In keeping with the relaxed vibe and customer focus, meal times are flexible. Wake up calls are accompanied by a cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea before a buffet of fruits, cereals and pastries, as well as a full cooked breakfast if required. Light lunches are followed by a three course evening meal with menus changing daily.
As well as the swimming pool and spa there is also a nearby recreation center with full gym, steam room, pool, tennis and squash courts, and running track.
