Moivaro  Lodge, Arusha

Moivaro lodge is located in close proximity to Arusha Airport down a quiet side-street at the base of a hill, and set back from the main road, giving a good insulation from local ambient noise. The friendly staff go the extra mile to achieve excellent levels of service.

Rooms at Moivaro Lodge

There are 40 tastefully-decorated cottages distributed around the main lodge in a beautiful and luxuriant garden.  The large bathrooms are adequately furnished with good water pressure, but some of the rooms have less hot water than others.

Moivaro Lodge’s Restaurant

The dining room is very nice and the outdoor dining overlooks the gardens. The fare is well-executed, offering a four course dinner blending European culinary techniques with African ingredients and themes, with an acceptable vegetarian option.  The abundant breakfast buffet caters for a variety of tastes, with cereal, fresh fruits and eggs to order. The bar with its fire-pit area are excellent for relaxing in, and stay open until you are ready to retire.

Facilities at Moivaro Lodge

The hotel has a generator to counteract the power cuts that are common in arusha, so any interruption in electricity supply is brief. Their three-hour laundry service has good reviews, and wifi is free in the reception area.  There is a pool, and the hotel offers full body massages, which are a perfect way to work out the knots from an arduous safari or climb.

Trip Advisor Review Disclaimer:

We estimate that around 30% of the reviews on Trip Advisor are probably fraudulent; something that Trip Advisor is powerless to prevent.  What was begun as a chance for fellow travellers to review hotels honestly, has since been subverted as a tool for unscrupulous businesses to promote their own services and to damage their competition’s reputations, and for disgruntled guests whose unreasonable demands have not been pandered to, to punish their accommodation providers.

While the UK’s Advertising Standards Agency banned Trip Advisor from claiming that its reviews were genuine, and while we advise that readers do not assume to be genuine everything that they read, we nonetheless feel that Trip Advisor is still helpful, in the absence of there yet being a more credible alternative service.
