The term "luxury" means different things to different people. To some it means gorgeous facilities, others may expect gourmet dining, and to some the most important element of a luxury property is the service. No matter what the word 'luxury' means to you, you will find it at Lake Duluti Coffee Lodge.
A brand new venue nestled inside an actual coffee plantation, Lake Duluti Lodge is a peaceful haven of unexpected luxuries and delights, and is the perfect venue to begin and end your adventure in Tanzania. This luxurious property is also within easy walking distance of the scenic shores of Duluti Lake, an added treat for bird and nature lovers.
Expect delicious food and comfortable furnishings at this new luxury venue, but the real hallmark of Lake Duluti is the personalized service and gracious, smiling staff. This peaceful haven will provide you with the rest and serenity you need before you embark on your Africa Dream Safari.
Lake Duluti Lodge consists of 18 luxury suites, each of which is beautifully and artistically decorated. Each suite is spaced throughout a forested grove of giant indigenous trees and coffee plants. Decedent in details, you'll find each room equipped with a giant four poster bed as the grand centerpiece, draped in plush bedding and mosquito nets. The bathrooms are huge and gleam with oversized mirrors, glass panels, a giant ceramic soaking tub and floor to ceiling windows protected by heavy drapes for privacy as needed. The bathroom and the bedroom both open up to a lovely wooden deck overlooking the coffee plants.
The cottages are connected to the main building by a network of shaded pathways that meander through the neatly manicured grounds and under giant shade trees. The main lodge is exceptionally beautiful and elegant, adorned with airy windows and sophisticated African decor. A large infinity pool gleams turquoise in sunlight in a private area overlooking the restaurant.
The lodge is owned and operated by local Tanzanians who take great pride in providing guests the very best facilities, amenities, food and service to be found anywhere in Arusha. Their pride and dedication to welcoming guests to their beautiful country of Tanzania is evident in all details, both large and small.
Fine dining food, luxurious furnishings and the most exceptional service to be found in all of Arusha will provide the rest and preparation needed before you embark on your Africa Dream Safari. Welcome to the one and only Lake Duluti Lodge!

It is also relatively close in proximity to several good shopping areas.

There is a separate sitting area with elegant sitting bench at the foot of the bed and plush armchairs, all covered in ivory upholstery. The bathrooms are huge and adorned with beautiful fixtures including a unique chandelier, a double vanity with oversized mirrors, and a giant soaking tub separated from a standing deluge shower by an elegant glass panel.

Your adventure begins at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), as you are welcomed to Tanzania. It is approximately a 30 minute drive from the JRO airport to the Lodge. After a good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast, you will venture out to the great northern parks of Tanzania. On our signature fly in and drive back safaris, you will be transferred to the Arusha Air Strip (about 30 minutes) for your early morning flight into the Serengeti on the morning following your arrival. On the last day of your safari, a day room is typically reserved so you may relax and enjoy a nice dinner before your departure from Kilimanjaro International Airport.
We encourage guests to consider spending an extra night at Lake Duluti Lodge upon arrival to rest from the long international flight and acclimate to Tanzania before launching into an action packed safari adventure. You simply can't go wrong lingering a bit longer at this very special lodge, a true retreat in every sense that is bound to bring peace to the mind as well as rest to the body.
