Machweo Wellness Retreat

Discover Machweo Wellness Retreat

Taking its name from the Swahili word for sunset, Machweo Wellness Retreat & Fine Dining is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner; perched high on a hill and offering fantastic panoramic views. A great stop-over accommodation, Machweo is ideal for breaking up a trip or for relaxing before or after a safari. The hotel itself overlooks the Monduli Mountains and is only a 30-minute drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport and 7 minutes from the centre of Arusha.

The main building houses 3 honeymoon suites with luxury bathrooms and on the estate, there are 6 private cottage suites, ideally positioned for maximum privacy and featuring a separate sitting and living area. All rooms are exquisitely furnished with double king-size four-poster beds, a flat-screen satellite tv and a balcony with breathtaking views for private outside dining. Machweo’s main lodge has top-notch spa facilities, a swimming pool and fine-dining restaurant, which is headed by an exceptional Michelin-star chef. After a long flight or busy safari, treat yourself with a steam bath, sauna or a yoga session or book one of the superb treatments ranging from hammam (Turkish bath) rituals, massages, reflexology and many more.
