Recommended in the 3 newest Bradt Travel Guides

Philip Briggs’ second edition of Northern Tanzania: The Bradt Safari Guide with Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar, published in July 2009, is fully updated throughout, including revised information on the best accommodation in every price bracket, from luxury lodges to simple hotels and hostels, and the best of the safaris. There’s specific coverage of the wildlife and natural history of the region, making it the indispensable companion to a safari in northern Tanzania’s renowned national parks. Plus there’s an introduction to the Swahili language. It is the first of 3 new Bradt Travel Guides featuring Onsea House in Arusha as best accommodation in its class: “… this attractive intimate boutique hotel has drawn praise from all quarters since it opened in Jul 2006. The large green gardens contain a swimming pool & the restaurant, managed by a Michelin trained Belgian chef, serves superb Afro-European fusion cuisine…”

In September, the 6th and fully updated edition of Philip Briggs’ comprehensive bestseller Tanzania with Zanzibar, Pemba & Mafia will provide the latest practical information for both independent travel and all-inclusive safaris, recommends the best of the ground tour operators, gives advice on interaction with the local people,… and also recommends Onsea House. Earlier editions of this guide received rave reviews from both travel press and travellers.

Gordon Rattray is the author of the first edition of Access Africa: Safaris for People with Limited Mobility, a safari guide that is the first in its kind. It describes access in hotels, lodges and tented camps, allowing readers to decide if it suits their particular needs, recommending Onsea House “… Less able travellers might prefer to use it as a chance to eat out in style while in Arusha (accepting help up & down the steps)…”

Reviews of luxury retreat in Arusha

Many honeymooners, romantic couples or small families still do not find Onsea House in Arusha yet when they want to book an intimate luxury honeymoon safari, spa, villa or lodge retreat in Arusha or Tanzania in general.

Onsea House has however received excellent reviews in Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and on several websites. With 20 million reviews and opinions of properties around the world, TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel community, is the source travellers trust most. Due to the extreme small size of our operations, we however get only few reviews compared to bigger hotels and are also listed in the B&B category instead of the more obvious hotel category. Taking all this into account, Onsea House is in fact the best reviewed place in Arusha.
