The chalets are built on raised wooden platforms with multi-level bedrooms; log fireplaces, private lounges and huge balconies overlooking Mount Meru and the plantation. In addition, each chalet features a mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, ceilings fans, safes and hairdryers; each chalet also has its own coffee grinder and percolator in the spirit of a true coffee estate experience. Meals are served at Redds African Grillhouse or outside in the gardens, where the extensive menu features an exciting array of traditional Tanzanian cuisine as well as variety of other African specialties.
