Readers also rated top hotels, cities, cruises, airlines, airports, car rental agencies, tour operators and islands worldwide.

The Arusha Coffee Lodge, part of the bespoke Elewana Collection in East Africa, is nestled in one of Tanzania’s largest coffee plantations at the base of the volcanic Mount Meru and offers invigorating glimpses into the region’s historic coffee rituals in spacious comfort designed around the original landowner’s early 20th-century home.

Here a fascinating coffee walking tour delights aficionados, coffeeholics and novices alike, giving the opportunity to learn about coffee harvesting, roasting and sampling Tanzania’s finest organic roast on the working estate.

From the industrious coffee pickers gathering in the harvest to the aromas of the morning brew emanating from the main house, Arusha Coffee Lodge is full of sensory experiences that revitalise the body and soul for the African safari adventure and excitement that lies ahead, or a welcome familiar respite at the end of a journey of a lifetime in Africa.

According to Elewana Collection’s Group Director of Marketing, Media and Communications, Jason Barry, Arusha Coffee Lodge offers an aromatic and sensory experience at the start or end of the Elewana Collection journey, promising a comprehensive immersion in Tanzania’s cultural, historical and topographical diversity. “We are honoured by the accolade bestowed upon us by the readers of Travel + Leisure in a region dominated by safari operators and we are delighted that our intentional efforts to pay homage to a bygone era are recognised.”
