Ahadi Lodge is a small-scale lodge and the perfect place to start your trip in Tanzania. It is located in the centre of Arusha and is considered a true oasis of peace. All its cottages are set in its lush tropical garden, surrounding the swimming pool. They are also known for their delicious fresh juices, which are served to you as soon as you arrive!
The inner garden with palm trees and a swimming pool has a nice atmosphere, especially when combined with the typical rounded Tanzanian cottages around it. Each of these has a front door to the courtyard garden and a back door to a lovely backyard. On request, the lodge can place a table here, so you can have an intimate and peaceful meal.
Although it is located in the city centre, its lush garden will make you feel right in the middle of nature. Nevertheless, you will also have the opportunity to go out and experience what it is like to live in a typical Tanzanian neighbourhood.
As far as the rooms are concerned, all of them are neat and nicely decorated with custom-designed linen, and have good bathrooms and fine beds. They are a bit smaller than those of the golden hotels, but certainly, for a first night’s stay, this is a perfect place.
