The review further describes the conjoined properties “with some of the most spectacular views in the area, overlooking Arusha and Mt. Meru. Manicured lawns and sloping pathways lead to private spacious cottage suites, delicately decorated with a four-poster bed, en suite bathrooms, and white cotton sheets. Food is of a high standard; lunches have some of the best curries around. Machweo is closer to the main dining area, shared swimming pool and spa, with some cottages that have shared common areas and others that are stand-alone. Onsea is actually out the main gate and down a small set of steps, completely self-contained with its own swimming pool, dining area, and African colonial–style rooms.
