      Luxury Cottages and Wellness Retreat in Arusha

      Machweo (Swahili for sunset) is perched on a hill offering unparalleled panoramic views across the Maasai steppe, overviewing the Monduli Mountains and providing the unrivalled spectacle of Mount Meru. Machweo is the place to relax and rejuvenate before or after a Tanzanian safari or a Kilimanjaro climb. The accommodation consists of 6 cottage suites, lavishly furnished and ideally positioned for maximum privacy, featuring separate sitting and living area, each accommodating up to 3 guests. Experience the calm setting in tastefully decorated rooms with four poster beds, mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms. The beautiful main building also houses 3 double honeymoon suites with luxury bathrooms including both bathtub and walk-in shower. The outdoor Jacuzzi and private floodlit swimming pool with lawn bar are the perfect place to prepare or recover in style from your safari or mountain climbing adventure. The Machweo Retreat offers the finest spa & wellness facilities including steam bath, sauna and additional separate swimming pool. To pamper both body and mind Machweo has added a yoga chapter to its Wellness Program. People can either sign in for an individual/couple session or attend the weekly yoga mornings on Saturdays. Sessions are open to both guests and non-guests but advance bookings are essential. Dining at Machweo is a delight. The food and service is best described as brasserie style with an African touch, mixing traditional French cuisine and the wonderful creativity and inspiration of this continent. The pure taste and flavors of the freshest ingredients are dressed and presented in the best way, elegant and contemporary. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Machweo main building. Clients can choose to sit either outside or inside on the balcony on the 1st floor. On busy days, meals are also served in the bar on the ground floor and around the swimming pool. Guests in the honeymoon suites can opt for a private dinner on their own balcony. A range of activities are on offer during your stay at Machweo Retreat, including bird watching, game drives in the surrounding national parks, balloon safaris, hiking and climbing and various cultural activities.
