Machweo Wellness Retreat A tranquil, intimate retreat just outside Arusha

The spirit of Machweo Wellness Retreat

Experience the tranquil Machweo Wellness Retreat & Fine Dining, set on the slopes of a hill that offers unparalleled panoramic views across the Maasai steppes and over the Monduli Mountains and scenic Mount Meru. Machweo is the Swahili word for sunset and there is no better place to enjoy the glory of the African sun going down. Situated just a short drive from the centre of Arusha, Machweo is a soothing retreat from the bustle of the busy town.

The retreat’s beautiful main building houses three double honeymoon suites, which each boast an ensuite bathroom with a deep soaking tub and a walk-in shower. The outdoor Jacuzzi and private floodlit swimming pool with lawn bar are the perfect place to prepare for or recover from your safari or mountain climbing adventure in style. Six cottage suites, all lavishly furnished and ideally positioned for maximum privacy, boast separate sitting and living areas, each accommodating up to three guests. All rooms offer top class amenities and a private balcony with front row seats for every African sunset.
