We stayed here this past January for 2 nights to relax after a very long set of flights before we went on Safari. This property is intimate and a wonderful place to relax. It was clean and well maintained complete with a pool and a nightly campfire. This villa also felt authentic and you didn't feel like you were in a typical resort. The staff were incredible. Elly was a very friendly and gracious host and was ready to share history and culture about Arusha. Mary was also very friendly and always tended to what we needed. The food at Kili Villa was delicious and felt like true home cooking! We were very happy to have been able to have this experience at Kili Villa and would recommend this to anybody needing to relax after a long flight or after a safari!
Perfect place to spend the first night after 36 hours of travel from the US before starting our safari. They staff was very attentive, the villa beautiful, and the food was the best we had on our entire trip (and that is saying something).
This Villa is the most extraordinary place to stay. There are 4 amazing homes available. We stayed at the tempo mtoni home. In this home there are four exquisite bedrooms (each with their own private bath and porch/ balcony). The bedrooms are large and very comfortable. The home is beautifully decorated and there are multiple seating areas. We walked and relaxed all day. Truly beautiful. Our private chef prepared delicious food for each meal. The staff provided for all of our needs. This was incredible. We ended our evenings by the outside fire with a delicious glass of wine. Perfect way to end our trip to Tanzania. Words cannot explain how much I enjoyed my stay. If you want to relax this is the place for you. I will definitely return and would highly recommend.
good place for outing and meet friends ambience climate , very natural selection to choose , nice pool and good overall cleanness. feel like out of stress and sometimes feel relaxed and stress free zone.
Kili Villa was awesome from before the trip started all the way through our stay... Speaking with the owner (Willem) before the trip to arrange a birthday surprise for one in the group, Willem and his Villa manager Stephano were exceptionally helpful and accommodating... Our waitress Jenifer ensured we hadthe most amazing first two nights in Tanzania on our way through the safari areas towards the Serengeti... The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable, especially the bed that was by far the best during the whole trip... Breakfasts on the veranda were a great way to start each day with the family and our last evening meal and Birthday cake surprise was truly awesome... We felt like guests in the house of good friends... Thank you Kili Villa, Willem, Stephano and Jennifer for a great start to our Safari Holiday...…
This is the second time we stayed at Kili Villas, a truly extraordinary places in the middle of the USA River bushland. You stay in private villas which are nicely decorated and very well maintained. Eeach villa has its own service personnel - cook, waitress, and the like. They take very well care of you! We truly enjoyed the tranquility of the place and the really extraordinary service. Imagine, you have breakfast, lunch and dinner on a terrace with a beautiful view on the landscape. Imagine, you zip your coffee and dik diks, impalas and other animals are passing by. We will certainly come back!
The Kili Villa is nothing less than spectacular. Nothing could have prepared me to the experience offered by staying in the villas. The warm and experienced welcoming of the staff, the accurate food and beverage selectiion at breakfast lunch and dinner, the traditional arts, design and architecture of the lodge and villas blends perfectly in the environment. The Golf Course is a challenging chanpionship course, caddies are experienced and provide wise guidance, the Club House is a timeless beauty anf the wildlife in the course offers an unforgettable golfing experience! All excellent and beyond expectation!
Kili Villa was a 5/5 stay. The staff was incredibly helpful. Stefan is an amazing addition to the house. He went out of his way twice to drive us where we needed too (even waking up extremely early just to do so). His cooking was excellent and his overall demeanor was incredible. He helps make the stay feel warm and welcoming. His other staff Ellie and company were also very helpful. The rooms were nice and quiet and had everything we needed. We would recommend anyone to stay here and enjoy the services that are provided at Kili Villa.
I recently spent a week at Kili Villa in their Tembo Mtoni house. I had business to do in Arusha and this turned out to be a most perfect place to spend the time while I had meetings and work to do. The staff I interacted with (Rosemary and Stefano) were exceptional in terms of knowing how and when to engage with me and when to give me my privacy. Birding was excellent just from the back porch! But the icing on the cake was Stefano's cooking. Probably one of the best chefs I have experienced in over 25 years of visiting Tanzania. There are a lot of activities to do in the area if you want to spend a few days relaxing before or after your safari. I would highly recommend using this property but you will get the most out of it if you stay more than the arrival night or the dayroom.…
Kili Villa is a true gem of a lodge one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed in. A beautiful and comfortable villa surrounded by unspoilt nature, with professional and friendly staff was a truly memorable experience. Seeping your morning coffee and looking at the antelopes grazing in the garden, watching the wide variety of birds during the day, or stargazing near the campfire at night is simply unforgettable. The sense of privacy, immersion in nature but with all mod cons, and, most of all, the friendly and kind people make it more much more than just another lodge. The food was simply delicious, on par with the best restaurants in 5-star hotels. During the day you can go for walks on the expansive nature estate, play golf on the best golf course in the country or even do a horseback safari nearby ( the latter is highly recommended). Kili Villa may not be to everyone's taste, as this is not a city hotel with TVs, air cons, busy bars, music etc. But for anyone who loves being in nature, staying in unique and beautiful surroundings and enjoying friendly and personal service - this is the place to My big thank you to everyone at Kili Villa, I will miss you all and I cannot wait to be back!…
