We spent 1 night at Planet Lodge on our way to Tarangire Park. This hotel had the most beautiful individual lodges, with amazing showers and super hot water.... perfect after a super long flight. The food was delicious, staff super friendly and the grounds were lush with beautiful flowers. There was a nice pool, we didn't use it because it was pretty cool the night we were there, but there were plenty of longing chairs if desired.
It was the perfect "first stop" in our Tanzania adventure and I'd definitely recommend to anyone needing lodging in the Arusha area.

From when you walk in the door its hard to believe that you're in a large city. The main building for check-in is also the lounge & restaurant. The wood of this room defines it with warmth. Garden paths wind around to the double bungalows. Spacious and beautiful with a small patio - this is no hotel room. Dinner in the main building was very good and included breakfast was cooked to order. Outstanding people working here. Stephen went the extra mile to make sure everything was perfect. Corrine at the front desk was a breath of sunshine.

The rooms of this Hotel are set in a huge, beautiful and well-kept garden. The staff are extremely friendly and willing to help. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed, bathroom is also good, shower with reasonable water pressure. The breakfast was weak, which is justified by the pandemic and the small number of guests. The cleaning in the room left something to be desired, not being done in one of the two days I spent there.

Dear Ric7716,
Thank you for the kind words! Your feedback on breakfast is also shared with Chefs for further action. Likewise, your feedback on daily housekeeping is noted... you see, as part of minimizing contact due to COVID, we default to doing housekeeping every other day for extended stays. However, this is something we discuss at reception during check in and if a client prefers daily housekeeping, we are glad to do it. Front desk is appraised and they will continue to ask clients even as they leave for the day to reconfirm the need for housekeeping.
We appreciate you choosing us and hope to welcome you back soon.

With best regards,
Grace for The Team @ Arusha Planet Lodge

I Just want to say thanks for your work and that arranged early transfer to Kilimanjaro airport. We thoroughly enjoy ourselves to stay on your lodge and less driving time to catch our early morning flight from Kilimanjaro International Airport.

All arrangement and transfer worked well. Thanks Julian, Glory, Coreen for responding our email very faster.

We highly recommend Planet lodge Kilimanjaro airport for your early morning transfer to airport as it really near to Airport.

We will definitely use it again on way back.
