I stayed with a group of 27 people at the hotel. I must said that the experience we had was excellent. The staff was really flexible to adjust their timing and activities to match our requeriments. They were extremely friendly and always checking on us to make sure everything was fine. I am very pleased with my expérience and I would stay at this hotel again. I also like their amenities, the gardens were beautiful and with a great view to the mountain. They have different types of rooms I really like the tent style ones (it is like glamping) they add a unique touch to the experience.

We decided to spend two days in this Resort right after our arrival in Tanzania. It was a good decision, as it is a great place to settle, before starting a safari or other more in-depth activities. We enjoyed the pool area and the beautifully designed and maintained gardens. The tent we stayed in was clean, the bed comfortable and we slept very well. There even was a TV in the tent, which we did not use though. Drinking water was provided and the shower had hot water. For the breakfast we would have hoped for a little more variety, but the lunch and diner we ordered was perfect. The place is easy to reach, in principle, though the road is quite bumpy.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this place and can recommend it, especially for families with kids, but also for couples.

Our stay at Fun Retreat Resort was nothing short of exceptional. The rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable with fantastic hot running water with the best water pressure we experienced throughout our trip. The staff were what made the stay the most beautiful, they were so accomodating, friendly and helpful. The restaurant was incredibly delicious with such a great range on the menu, when we had to check out in the early hours of the morning they made a breakfast box for us to ensure we had something delicious to eat along our travels. The facilities were exceptional and would be the best stay with children. The spa was so incredibly beautiful and made for the cherry on top of the cake for our stay. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful property and I hope to one day in the near future return. Thank you again to Fun Retreat Resort for our exceptional stay, we wish we were there for longer.

We left our mom and the kid at the Retreat while we climbed Kilimanjaro and they had a great time. After we came down to go on a Safari, they let us leave our luggage at the hotel until we came back 2 days later. They even let me have a very late checkout as my flight was leaving in the evening.

The staff was really helpful!

My spouse and I spent a couple of nights at Fun Retreat Resort. First, I'd like to say this resort is really catered toward children. We, along with other couples we spoke to, felt a little out of place. There is a small scale water park for kids (but it was never on), small bumper cars, and arcade games, which are only for small children. There is also a jungle gym.

However, we really enjoyed our stay there. All the staff was very friendly and always trying to make your stay a great experience, especially Flora, Stefano, and Dorcas.

We ate various selections from the menu for lunch and dinner and it was all so good. It is worth the wait because everything is made fresh.

We also did a massage there and it was great. The prices were very reasonable compared to other hotels we stayed in. They don't have a room with two beds for couple massages so you have to go to separate rooms. But it was well worth it and relaxing. We had a full body massage and it was a unique experience.

The bar area was nice, and Stefano makes really good drinks. We spent our afternoons playing pool, listening to music, and drinking cocktails to wind down from the safari.

The bed was comfortable and the A/C worked really well. Our only advice for the resort is that the tent lodges felt a bit outdated. The canvas walls need to be cleaned or replaced as well as the wooden shower walls.

Overall, we would stay here again if we were in Arusha.

Don't forget to check out the Culture Heritage Museum downtown. It's only a 30 min ride away. Use the Bolt app to request a ride.

I wish we had a bit more time to spend here.
We got into to Arusha only around 9 pm (Thanks to a random flight cancelation by Precision air which costed us half a day).

By the time we got to the resort at 10 pm, it was pretty dark but we could still make out the beautiful expanse of lawns and gardens surrounding us. There were also a plethora ot activities that my kids would have loved to do - a water park, zorbing etc.

Despite the late hour (and the kitchen staff having packed up for the day), the staff was very kind to put together a fruit platter for us upon request.

The rooms were comfortable and we had enough space for our family of 4. Our room was set in their spa section which looked extremely inviting and made us wish more that we had come in a bit earlier.
We had to leave for our safari early the next morning and the early breakfast (made hot, fresh and tasty) and checkout experience was smooth.

All in, it was a great preview to the Tanzanian hospitality coming our way! Thank you Fun Retreat and hopefully next time we will spend more time with you!

We visited Fun Retreat with a group from Dubai. The main entrance welcomes you with a green landscape and fun animal statues places all over the resort. The playground area served as an amazing obstacle course and the treehouse hosted our cozy evening chats. The food did not disappoint either, having that fresh and organic taste we all missed. Would definitely recommend it to everyone planning a visit to Arusha.

Wifi Speed could use a tune-up.

We had our daughter’s second birthday party here, while on a journey driving around the world. For what we have experienced in much of Africa, it’s quite good, as it’s more organized, clean and accommodating than average by far, though still there’s more to grow on. I have noticed that many Africans still do not completely understand what it is to be of service, but clearly there is more of a vibe of *I’ll help when I must.* or *I’ll do what I have to, to keep my job.* There are plenty of hints of complacency and a *I don’t really desire to be here, this is for the money.* kind of vibe. The place would benefit greatly to “run a fine tooth comb” through it, clean up all the trash hiding in the cracks and crevices, train the employees how to be genuinely happy to help and bring attention to the details that make an establishment worthy of five stars, as well as take care and fix the toys and items throughout the park that are broken or nearly so to really show the love and value. Overall I’m grateful for the experience and I’m sure your kids will enjoy the space.

We went as a group in June, we had a fantastic experience there. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and the food was great, specially when they cook outside in their garden.
The location isn't far from Arusha's airport but you will need a car to get around as all the exciting stuff is quite far away. Bring plenty of mosquito repellent as you will get bitten :)
