    • Lovely retreat outside Moshi

      Reviewed 17 July 2019

      Our family four had a relaxing 2 days at Kaliwa Lodge in June. We arrived at Kaliwa after 2 days of travel from Australia and it was lovely place to recharge our energy before we started our safari. Our accomodation was modern and spacious. At the back of the property there is a wonderful area to watch the bridle and monkeys - it was our son's favourite spot to read his book and hear the noise of the animals and the river. The German couple running the lodge and their staff are all lovely and very helpful. I would highly recommend this lodge

    • In a canopy of clouds

      This place is truly magical. Its reminded me of of the Jurassic parks movies with all the prehistoric landscapes. From the moment you arrive at this modern eco lodge in the tree canopy you find yourself in a world epic views & misty morning clouds. ROOMS Each room is actually an individual modernist structure that has ample space for two people to stay comfortably with storage space, seating area and a nice sized bathroom with a great hot water shower. They also have natural eco shower gel that had such a beautiful aroma. COMMON AREAS They have a few area but one stands out the most and that is the deck thats perched on the side of the property overlooking a beautiful river valley with the famous Kilimanjaro in the background that drafts all other things. Its truly a special place with the sound of the river & birds in the background i spend my morning here it was super serene. A communal room with fire place that also doubles as a restaurant for lunch & dinner. They also have outdoor garden space with sun chairs for al fresco dining. SERVICES Breakfast, lunch and dinner can all be served here. They can also organise tours to the national parks, meeting the local community & taking nature walks down into the valley as i did. LOCATION Set just outside of the national park perched onto of a small river valley set in the rainforest is a place of true serenity where you can take in the sights & sounds of the wonderfully green place.

    • Perfect!

      Better impossible: The place is beautiful, calm. All employees are very helpful and polite. The deck is a HIT! Spectacular view! Monkeys included. Manager Marvin knows the area and provides excellent advice as well as connections to perfect little tours in the vicinity (if you go: Ask for Edmund and his few-hour-tour through the banana plantation!). Don't expect a hotel with spa, bar and disco - if you seek that, you're wrong in Kaliwa. It is the perfect place to take it easy for few days, chill out, wander around, enjoy the view.

    • Kaliwa lodge is a perfect place to relax!

      Kaliwa logde is situated in the middle of Machame village, closest neighbours are coffee and banana farms! It is not a hotel, so dont expect ac and tv with 100 channels. Instead you get a beautiful garden, a magnificent view from the deck, good food and fantastic service in a way that makes you feel at home! I recommend the walking tour of Machame village to see and learn more about the local history and identity. Its a perfect place to relax after a Kili climb and to rest between various day trips you might want to do. Recommended!

    • Disappointment

      Reviewed 15 December 2018

      Going by the reviews I expected more. After having been at really nice hotels, this one seemed even worse. Concrete square room with poor ventilation. Room was hot, no A/C. Infrastructure was crumbling in places so insects got into room. Our unit was in the middle of a parking lot, so loud traffic noise and roosters crowing at 4am did not help. Only one option for dinner and had to pay for tea, coffee and water. Beautiful foliage and deck, Mt. Kilimanjaro is usually fogged over so deck view is questionable. Staff did not interact therefore did not appear to be friendly. Management said they were sorry for the conditions but offered no assistance.
