Legendary Lodge sits in the foothills of Mount Meru near the Tanzanian town of Arusha. Arusha is the gateway to the country’s famous northern safari circuit which includes must-do safari destinations like the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Park.
Legendary Lodge is hidden within lush gardens on a coffee plantation, and the 10 private cottages offer guests a quiet and relaxing setting. The cottages boast comfortable oversized beds beneath large mosquito netting, beautiful hardwood floors and a lovely sitting area. Each cottage also has its own ensuite bathroom fitted with both a shower and a claw-footed bathtub, as well as a quiet, private veranda looking out onto the gardens or with a view of the mountain. The lodge also offers two family cottages.
The main lodge and the rooms are decorated in a unique blend of African art and colonial-style and offer a touch of sophistication in an idyllic setting. The central area has a homely feel with a cosy lounge area furnished with comfortable couches in front of a roaring fireplace as well as both indoor and outdoor dining areas. There is also a glorious wood-topped bar offering a range of alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) beverages and an outdoor sitting area and fireplace on the extensive terrace. Masterful chefs have created a mouth-watering dining menu that is always artfully presented, whilst freshly brewed coffee in the morning is always a highlight.
