Unfortunately, our stay is was only one night but this was definitely a place I would come to again if I was in Arusha. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The grounds are lush with trees, flowers and walking paths. The rooms are in the form of small huts

If you are in Arusha for either a mountain climb or safari, do not hesitate to use Planet Lodge as your base camp. It was a perfect stay before and after our outings. The manager (specifically) and all the staff were fabulous: always friendly and authentic! The gardens were

We stayed twice. At arrival poor service, bad food for dinner and breakfast. My wife was sick with food. We came back at the end of safary and all was good. Nice welcoming, good food. No sickness. Good service. Very strange hop à place can change so much in 5 day!

The rooms were actually villas, 2 rooms per villa. The grounds and gardens were well kept and beautiful. My only negative was that our room was a little small. I would not have wanted to stay there more than 1 night as I would have felt confined once I started spreading my

Hello esinkewicz, We are happy to see you loved the newly renovated bathroom! Yes, our bathrooms are pretty spacious and modern now. Yes, many clients love the villa style and enjoyed our gardens. Your feedback on room size is noted... perhaps the big bathroom made the room feel smallish? Most clients are happy with the room size... We've shared your feeling with our leadership team for consideration. Thank you for choosing us and for taking time to write about your stay. Karibu tena, The Team @ Arusha Planet Lodge

We stayed one night before and after safari. Good place for resting, there is really not much to do in the neighbourhood. Good food and the staff is very friendly, helpful and fun. Always something going on in the evening after dinner.

Dear JoonasM83, Glad to see you enjoyed the rest while with us. I'd like to point out that there are plenty of things to do during your stay and please allow us to list a few... 1) if you are into birds, you can borrow our birding book and walk around spotting the 30+ resident species. 2) A village walk, you can walk alone during the day or with one of our guides into the village around us. This can be for 20, 30 or up to 60 minutes. 3) On request, we bring in local artists for beading, drawing and sculpting lessons subject to their availability. 4) Massage, manicures, pedicures or shopping at the gift shop. 5) We offer numerous day activities to do in town, the Lake nearby, at local markets, waterfalls and many other cultural programs one can explore. Just check with our friendly Front Desk and we'd be glad to suggest an activity or two. We appreciate you choosing us and for taking time to write about your stay. The Team @ Arusha Planet Lodge

Sure Tamara, thank you for considering a stay with us! The shuttle service to Arusha is free for in house guests and it leaves the Lodge at 10 am and returns clients (pickup at Clock Tower) at 4 pm. You must sign up at Reception the night prior so we can schedule a vehicle appropriate for the number of people in your party. If no one signs up we do not prepare a driver/vehicle so we always encourage clients to sign up early and cancel if the must vs. signing up late. I trust this answers your question but feel free to drop us an email for further information. With best regards, Grace.

Yes, some of the rooms have 2 beds, and some even have 3 twins. You just need to be clear when making the reservation what you want.
