Onsea House



Less than 5 kilometres from the rugged Arusha National Park and Mount Meru Forest Reserve, Onsea House is a stone-walled, scenic manor that will enthral you. Built on a hill side, the views from this lodge stretch out for kilometres.



Designed to relax the body and indulge the senses, everything at Onsea House is memorable. Sumptuous meals, prepared by an expert team that blend African with French traditions, wow the taste buds, whilst visits to the tiered garden and sparkling pool soothe the eyes and cool the flesh. Exclusive service and the limited space at Onsea House create a unique attention to detail in every one of your moments in this colonial manor.

Guests have three choices of suites to stay in. The 5 rooms of Onsea House are surrounded by manicured gardens, seen from the raised wooden balconies outside a room containing a luxurious four post bed, draped in fabrics. The en-suite bathrooms have standalone tubs and showers for added comfort. Of these rooms, two are double suites and one is a family suite. Both accommodate bigger travelling groups. However, it’s the standalone guest cottage that caters to up to 6 people, making it perfect for travellers seeking their own personal space.


Wildlife & Activities

From hikes, mountain biking, game drives and hot air balloons, thrill seekers and adventurers will be kept busy from dawn to dusk at Onsea House. However, if you’re in the mood for something calmer, try a visit to the local communities, go birdwatching or play golf. Your choices are all that matter at Onsea House.
