Legendary Lodge is something of a hidden gem: they do amazing massages at the Legendary Spa (price at time of review was 70k for 1hr and 90k for 1.5hrs) and the lodge itself is beautiful and very serene. However: it is difficult to find - not helped by the difference between Nairobi Road (as defined on Google Maps) and "The...

Unfortunately, just had a presentation at this nice hotel. We had the Meru Villa for the evening, where we received some of our clients. The team was super and the food was excellent. Would have loved to stay over, but i am sure will be back one day to do so. Thank you to the whole team, for making our...

Stayed here for 2 nights before starting our safari, and it was lovely. Service was great. Cottage was beautiful. Sorry we couldn't stay longer! Breakfast on the porch was excellent. Staff very attentive. We'd recommend!

Eight of us decided to go to Tanzania and booked our tour through Legendary Expeditions. We arrived at Kilimanjaro airport to be met by our two guides (Aloyce and Ray, both top class) and they transported us to Arusha. Just off the main road from Daresalam to Nairobi we took a sharp left and arrived at Legendary Coffee Lodge. Wow!...

From the languid secluded lawns with private sitting areas, to the generous cottage suites, excellent menus and attentive management, this is by far the best lodge in Arusha and worthy of its own R&R stay before or after a safari. You will relish this property!

Our very last night we spent just outside Arusha, at the Legendary Lodge. Set on a coffee plantation it definitely reminded me of a throwback to the days of British occupation and particularly the movie “Out of Africa”. The service was impeccable, and we sat on the outdoor covered patio for meals, overlooking the manicured lawn, with the croquet set...

The Legendary was the perfect spot for us to regain our physical strength and mental wits after three flights over 24 hrs. The staff was very professional and welcoming. The room made me wish that we were there for more than a night. The dinner and breakfast were both better than I expected.

We flew into Arusha/Kilimanjaro to begin our safari. We stayed only one night at the legendary lodge - it was a perfect first night. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff could not have been nicer. The rooms are gorgeous and the food is very good. Our safari guide for the first few days was through Legendary and he...

Without the best way and place to start or end an East African safari. Wonderful intuitive service, spacious and well appointed rooms topped with the most beautiful and relaxing gardens. One of those places you wished you had allocated more time to savour.

Legendary is a brilliant descriptor We only spent one night at Legendary Lodge and if you are starting or finishing your visit to Tanzania as part of a safari then this is the place to do it - especially if you fly in from a long hall flight - do yourself a favour - book 2 nights on the way...

“For families, request the two bedroom villa - large rooms, luxury bathrooms, large living room and ample private outdoor patio”

“All of the rooms seem to have unparalleled privacy. I doubt there's much to choose between them.”
  • Front of my suite
  • The shower's to the left, the toilet to the right
  • Just plain old-fashioned luxury
  • Gigantic suite. You could stay here a week and not feel cramped.
  • Sitting area. It was enormous.
