We arrived at Machweo Wellness Retreat and Fine Dining on January 12, 2018, for an overnight stay at the beginning of a fabulous safari. The grounds and facility are beautiful, well maintained and the staff is superb. They couldn’t do enough to make sure we were comfortable and provided every convenience possible. The dining was outside on a lovely terrace overlooking the gardens, pool and hillsides of Arusha. The kitchen was open to the bar area and was immaculate. The Michelin-rated chef prepared unusual and tasty dishes and the presentation was delightful. We spent a restful night, had a fabulous breakfast and left on our safari. We returned two weeks later to spend the day awaiting our late departure from Kilimanjaro to a most hospitable welcome from the staff. The staff remembered us and were remarkably attentive. We highly recommend this destination for anyone passing through this area.

We stumbled upon the place online. We went for lunch with my wife, her parents, our daughter and her brother. The place is supremely beautiful. The food is tastefully done. We loved the view, nestled in the slopes of a hill with great views of the sunset. Our daughter had a swim

Yesterday, we had a private party for 20 people at Mwachweo. The food and service were excellent. The Chef/Manager Axel prepared some original and delicious salads, vegetable dishes and BBQ grilled meats and seafood. All of my guests were most impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambiance of Mwachweo. The staff were attentive, friendly and attentive. I do not know of any other establishment in the area that could have produced such a feast. I recommend without hesitation.

Thank you!

Beautiful setting away from the hubbub of Arusha town. Sitting in a boutique hotel complex. Outdoor terrace on a hill with great views. Nice food, friendly service, not cheap but worth it. Would go again

This was our first evening after landing at Kilimanjaro airport from US. The staff was very hospitable, the rooms were very clean and the restaurant was excellent for a drink and dinner. This is a perfect place to recover and launch our african safari on the next day!
