Tanzania Weddings & Honeymoon Destinations

Your wedding celebration is something to remember forever. With a design and ambience reminiscent of a colonial coffee farm, Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa provides a timeless and romantic setting for an unforgettable wedding in the African bush. 

Surrounded by views of Lake Duluti and the woodlands of Mount Meru, the resort is an escape to the Tanzania of long ago. Sheer tranquillity, dramatic landscapes and cultivated lawns and gardens offer a breathtaking backdrop for your gathering of family and friends. From English breakfasts and sundowner cocktails on a lawn by the lake to game drives in Serengeti National Park or treks up an extinct volcano crater, your wedding will be distinguished by once-in-a-lifetime moments. 

In this spectacularly beautiful destination, unique venues envelope guests in natural splendour. Exchange vows on the lawn outside our enchanting stone-built restaurant. Host a sunset cocktail party on the shores of Lake Duluti or plan your reception in the safari-style Canvas Room overlooking the lake. 

Whatever your whims, wishes or wants, our wedding planner and catering team will help you design a wedding celebration that is beyond your expectations. 


Ideally placed at the gateway to the famous northern Tanzanian Safari Circuit, Arusha Serena Hotel, Resort & Spa is the perfect destination for relaxing and recharging after all your wedding excitement. In addition to our convenience to the slopes of Mount Meru and Arusha National Park, we also offer a wide variety of tours and excursions ranging from mountain biking and canoeing to day trips to the surrounding towns.
