Machweo Wellness Retreat

Machweo Wellness Retreat

Just outside of Arusha, we’ve created a sanctuary of tranquillity. Unwind after your safari adventure, relax in the unrivalled peace of our lush gardens. Take an energizing dive in our pool, treat yourself to an invigorating massage and indulge in the luxury of your room. Sample some of the most delicious food you’ll ever taste and get treated like a king or queen by our staff.

Highlights

Machweo is a refuge for those who enjoy the finer things in life. Expect the kind of treatment you get in the smaller, more exclusive tented camps. It’s a feeling, we’ve been told, you easily get used to.
