outdoor spaces

Lush Cottages’ outdoor spaces will make your stay exceptional and unlike any other place in Arusha. Surrounded by well manicured gardens and tropical vegetation, it is no surprise that our guests wish to spend most of their time outdoors. There are many outdoor spaces where you can dine, read a book or soak in the African sun. Our swimming pool and outdoor gym also offer a harmonious balance between rejuvenation and staying fit! Whether you prefer a leisurely swim or an invigorating workout, this combination provides the ideal solution to ensure both your physical and mental well-being are being nurtured.

“This was such an exceptional stay. I stayed for a week and it really felt like home. Firstly, it was just as portrayed and described – and more! You arrive at a wonderfully serene, homey and luscious space. Everyone is so friendly and kind, but also provides you with the privacy you need. Secondly, it is beyond fully-equipped with cleaning/laundry help too 🙂 Comfy beds, great infrastructure for working remotely, and all the supplies you need. And I’m pretty picky with all that 😉 Finally, Elle was impeccable in her communication and support throughout the stay. As a lone traveler she made everything so stress-free. While some would say the location is not super central, it did not feel that way at all. It was easy to arrange transportation and I did not feel secluded. I can’t wait to return.”
