Mount Meru Hotel

Location: Arusha

Welcome to the Mount Meru Hotel, Arusha’s famous hotel, and Africa's largest and most exciting conference destination. An oasis of tranquility on Tanzania’s gateway to major tour tourist destinations, the Mount Meru Hotel blends stylishly elegant African architecture with supremely luxurious accommodations; sparkling water gardens with beautifully landscaped gardens, and a wide choice of international restaurants. Tanzania is renowned for being the gateway to the Serengeti and annually, thousands flock through its borders to (hopefully) glimpse the migrating herds of wildebeest across its famed plains and see one of the few truly natural hunting grounds where predator and prey are free to roam, graze and hunt uninhibited. What visitors to Tanzania are simply astounded by (something National Geographic does not always highlight) are the other fantastic locations and the warmth and inviting nature of the Tanzanian people.


Situated at the foothills of Mount Meru in the city of Arusha, the Mount Meru Hotel lies on 15 acres of serene and lush landscape. As the topographic centerpiece of the Arusha National Park, the hotel is also surrounded by some of Africa’s most breathtaking vistas, rich with a diverse array of wildlife, etched against the fertile slopes of this beautiful mountain, the fifth highest peak in Africa.


The Hotel is nestled against one of the most majestic backdrops ever imagined, the picturesque Mount Meru, the sister peak to Africa’s highest summit, Mount Kilimanjaro. Keeper of myths and legends for centuries, this magnificent mountain is a photographer’s Mecca.


Amidst all the majesty of the natural landscape, the Hotel humbly echoes the brilliance of the jewel famed by the country of its origin, the Tanzanite. It succeeds in beautifully mirroring the surrounding magnificence as the pinnacle of splendor and grandeur Tanzania has to offer. You will have a difficult time finding a more idyllic destination to inspire the imagination and rejuvenate the senses.


Despite Arusha’s proximity to the Equator, the climate is surprisingly pleasant with an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. Situated 1400m above sea level on the Southern slopes of Mount Meru, even the humidity is kept at bay, not only making the Mount Meru Hotel a tranquil getaway in the middle of some of nature’s most spectacular scenery but a place where you can really put your feet up and find your grounding again.


The Mount Meru Hotel stands in 15 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens incorporating a wide variety of indigenous trees and offering sanctuary to a startling array of birds and butterflies.




Our well-decorated and authentic rooms provide a relaxing getaway while you’re in Arusha. Choose one of the 178 air-conditioned guest rooms including complimentary Wi-Fi, a well-lit work area, a mini-refrigerator, and DSTV with Free view channels, Electronic safes, and Tea/coffee making facilities. Freshen your suitcase between Mountain climbing and safari with our guest laundry facilities.


The Hotel offers the discerning traveler more than just a resting place when it comes to accommodation. The room itself is an experience of understated African opulence, open space, and natural light.
