Stefania is at present leading a European operators educational trip to the Elewana Collection properties in Tanzania and Zanzibar also visiting the Sopa Lodges properties in Northern Tanzania.
Here are some of her comments as she tours the properties – giving you first-hand information.
Arusha Coffee Lodge – Sunday and Monday 9th & 10th December
Alan and Maike Bailes are now the managers at Arusha Coffee Lodge following their very successful spell at Kilindi. They are thriving in the cooler up-country air and have lots of projects to keep them occupied.
The public areas are undergoing a change of function and there are new developments including
– A 24 hour bistro-style coffee shop with lunchtime carvery
– A fine dining restaurant
– A comfortable bar lounge – now separated from the restaurant
– A casual bar terrace with sofas and pillows
The gift shop and the tanzanite shop have been moved from by the pool to near to the reception area, and there are plans to open a spa in the near future.
They left on safari today – so we will add to this blog as and when we hear from her.
