Our Stay At Chele Chele
Me and my family had the best weekend at Chele Chele Villa! The whole team was extremely welcoming and the place is just breathtaking. Would recommend everybody to have a stay at this place.
Villa Chele Chele is absolute luxury in the modern world. It is an opportunity to experience a slow everyday life imbued with sincerity, love and care.
Villa's employees are like family members who take care of your every, even the smallest wish. This is the second time we have visited this villa and we will return again and again.
We did a yoga and meditation retreat here. The villa staff even went out of their way to set up a special shalla for us to practice yoga. Just incredible. The staff of the villa helped to prepare for each activity, dipped wildflowers, and brought candles in the evenings. When we came back from the safari, they even arranged a surprise for us, a candlelight and starlit dinner.
This place embodies all the greatest values that are often lost in the modern world. That's why it's just good to be here... enjoying all the fluffy monkeys running around the branches, fresh coffee and cookies freshly baked by the hostess. Our group had breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two or three hours, as it became another unexpected meditation practice.
Each participant took away an extraordinary feeling of peace and love that no amount of money can buy.
Our heartfelt thanks to the villa owner Aziz and the entire team at Chele Chele for an invaluable experience.
Everything thought of, all questions answered. But the most important thing, it felt like staying with family or very good friends! The food we got, European as well as local, the hugs, the comfort and spaciousness of the villa, the exotic sounds and noises throughout day and night (the colobus monkeys are making really funny noise!). And the safaris of course! All in all, an unforgettable trip!
My sister and I recently stayed at Chele Chele Villa and were impressed by the amazing hospitality. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were at home and were taken care of every step of the way. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable during our stay.
The villa itself was stunning, with breathtaking Kilimanjaro views that made it hard to leave. We were able to fully unwind and enjoy our time there.
Overall, we highly recommend Chele Chele Villa for anyone looking for a beautiful and welcoming place to stay. The combination of exceptional hospitality, gorgeous views, and comfortable surroundings make it the perfect choice for a memorable getaway.
Chele Chele felt like a home away from home. The management and staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. The food was excellent. The view to Mount Kilimanjaro was breathtaking.
The place is so beautiful and peaceful, as a designer there was inspiration for days in every room and space. The service was just wonderful and from the moment we got of the car and mama of the house said welcome, we felt at home absolutely looked after catering to all our food needs, offering any help, the kitchen you can pop your head in and it’s like your in your home kitchen. Smiling faces from all the staff and the FOOD was to die for. I can’t rave enough about what a welcoming place this is from the owner to the beautiful staff.
Chele Chele delivered in every way, the property is well maintained and has a beautiful aesthetic. The team managing the property went above and beyond for us. Mwanaidi's cooking is simply divine. We were all able to kick back and relax in a serene environment while looking at a stunning view of Mt. Kilmanjaro. Thank you, speaking as a Kenyan hospitality professional, I can say Tanzanian hospitality takes the trophy. 🏆
Our stay at Chele Chele was perfect from the start until the end.
The place is heavenly, quiet and we felt at home.
Despite a very late arrival at the Villa, we were greeted by Aziz who was waiting for us and helped us to settle down.
Our stay was punctuated with beautiful surprises including a surprise cake prepared by the Mamma for our wedding.
The delicious dishes of the Mamma as well as the attention of the entire team of the Villa allowed us to have a wonderful stay.
Thank you Aziz, thank you to all the team of Villa Chele Chele !!!
We spent eight days at Chele Chele Villa. It was a wonderful place for a meditation retreat with lots of space for practice. Rooms and common spaces are authentically decorated, creating the spirit of real Africa. Every detail is thought out. The rooms are extremely cozy and spacious. Well maintained and clean. We enjoyed spending cozy evenings by the fireplace.
The Villa area is surrounded by a large garden with a view of Kilimanjaro. We were constantly watched by various monkeys in the trees. It was fun daily entertainment. The flowers and trees in the garden enriched our daily practices with their colors and scents.
The Villa staff are like family members. Every wish we had was fulfilled upon request.
We wanted vegetarian food. This request was met with abundance. Fresh, homemade food prepared with love and its variety made us happy every day.
When we came back from the safari, we were treated to surprises, a candlelight dinner that was simply enchanting and a barbeque lunch under a giant bamboo.
Every morning started with warm hugs and dancing. When we came back after a day of traveling we felt like coming home, welcomed and loved. We were lucky to be able to meet the owner of the villa, Aziz, who created an extraordinary atmosphere for the whole group, shared his stories, surrounded us with attention and warmth. Thanks to his funny stories, we laughed heartily.
Chele Chele Villa will remain in our memory for a lifetime. It is an authentic experience of real Africa, big hearted people, boundless spirit, authenticity, friendship and real family.
We recommend this to everyone 1000 percent!!!
With love and gratitude,
I've used Chele Chele and its wonderful facilities on numerous occasions, starting during COVID to safely isolate our safari groups from mixing with other tourists. This roomy accommodation is top notch and comfortably sleeps small to large groups with 4 double bedrooms in the main lodge and three spacious cabins. There are numerous sitting areas - both inside and out, a comfy lounge with roaring fireplace, large well-manicured grounds and a pool. The food is outstanding with a varied choice of menus to choose from for both lunch and dinner, and there is always more than enough food to satisfy even the biggest appetites. The staff couldn't be more attentive, friendly and helpful. Chele Chele is the perfect place to relax and acclimate to the time change after a long international flight or to relax and prepare oneself for the long flight home. Definitely Five Stars from the booking process right down to the finest detail.
