The Gran Melia Arusha

Location: Arusha Tanzania

The Gran Melia Arusha is the first property in Africa opened by Gran Melia Hotels & Resorts, the leading Spanish luxury hotel brand.

Located in the heart of Arusha in northern Tanzania, the exclusive resort town in East Africa, the property has smoothly opened 48 rooms out of 171. It is ideal for visitors wishing to experience the beautiful nature of Africa's most striking landscapes, including the Serengeti and Kilimanjaro. This luxury hotel is the second of such an upscale category to come to Tanzania. It enjoys a prime location for both international and regional travelers.

It is just 45-minute drive from Kilimanjaro International Airport and 20 minutes from Arusha Airport. Gran Melia Arusha has 171 rooms and suites decorated with earthen interiors and contemporary furnishings, creating a relaxing atmosphere for guests.

In line with Melia Hotels International's commitment to the environment, the hotel was created with environmentally friendly materials and a plastic-free commitment. The Gran Melia Arusha will bottle guests' water on site. It has its own spice and vegetable garden which supplies the resort's restaurants with seasonal produce. Gran Melia Arusha offers various dining options, including the prestigious exotic restaurant Piment Jaune. Celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor takes guests on a delicious journey through India's unique cuisine. He draws his inspiration from the Punjab region and traditional dishes from the Mughal Empire.

The Saba Saba restaurant, open all day, offers a varied menu, made up of local seasonal recipes and fresh dishes with international influences, prepared in front of the guests in an open kitchen. Hotel guests can enjoy delicious hot and cold drinks at the Coffee Shop. They are created from the coffee and tea plantations surrounding the hotel. It is also possible to enjoy sophisticated cocktails and Peruvian-Spanish fusion cuisine on the magnificent rooftop terrace which offers a breathtaking view of Mount Meru and “live” shows on certain evenings.

A series of exceptional experiences have been designed to allow guests to see the best that Tanzania has to offer. Whether it's visiting Tarangire National Park, taking a hot air balloon ride to watch wildlife migration in the Serengeti, or hiking Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro… it's all been thought to leave with exceptional memories. It is also possible to enjoy a private guided tour in the beautiful Arusha National Park. Today's explorers can see hundreds of African animals living in the wild, and then enjoy a luxury picnic in a clearing. Gran Melia Arusha is also well-placed to explore two of Melia Hotels International's premier properties in the area,

The spa and wellness center at Gran Melia Arusha is state-of-the-art. A selection of detox and stress reduction treatments are dedicated to enhancing beauty and balance, using rituals that stimulate the senses. The spa features a heated outdoor pool surrounded by views of Mount Meru and landscaped gardens.
