Wonderful place to relax and hike!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Mar 2019
Simple, spacious and functional (family)rooms with cosy terrace and wunderful, panoramic view. The food is delicious and plenty. Kanaani Resthouse is 30 minutes by foot away from the center of Lushoto, there are various hiking possibilities in the surroundings. The warm-hearted team gave us the feeling of being welcome from the first moment. A really good place to relax and to feel comfortable :)! Best value for money.

We stayed here 4 nights and had a really great time! Sabine, the owner, is a warm hearted, friendly person, who knows a lot about Lushoto, the region and the tansanien people and will always help you if you have any questions. The food is fantastic and the landscape is beautiful. You can do a lot of hiking in the impressive Usambara mountains here during your time. Our room was big, clean and cozy.

Highly recommended!

I stayed 3 nights in the hostel and eat the tasting big free breakfast and test the delicious dinner buffet, too.
The clean rooms are big with 3 beds inside. The staff is always very helpful and friendly.
You also can sit outside on the terrace of the room and enjoy the nice view. Or you can sit in front from the community room an enjoy the free afternoon buffet.
The „center“ you can reach by walk in 25 minutes or take a motorbike or taxi for small money.
Sabine does everything for you at any time. She booked a guide for daytrip, it was amazing, and she bought the bus ticket and said "Good bye!" in the early morning. She does not took money for herself for this sevices. That let it feel very familiar.
Thank you very much for everything!

We had a beautiful stay at Kanaani resthouse. It felt like in a hotel...the days start with an extense breakfast buffet, including nearly everything a european could think of. Followed by nice daytrips based on helpful information or even companion service. Then there is afternoon coffee and you can even have a dinner buffet as well. Basically, we didnt need to leave the location at any point except for hiking :) great place!!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Kanaani Rest house. We got a very spacious room with a little terrace and an amazing view. It was clean and had everything you need including Moskito net, towels etc. The people who were welcoming us (all locals) are lovely! Very friendly and helpful. We chose to have breakfast and dinner there and both meals were always very good. They are prepared according to your schedules.
When asking for hiking tours they suggested a tour guide (Kasimu) who we ended up doing 2 hikes with. He is a very friendly young guy, speaks English and was happy to show us around and helping us out.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Kanaani and Lushoto and can only recommend it!
