At Onsea House we are proud that with the opening of Machweo Wellness Retreat and Fine Dining, we were nominated as Best Safari Spa and Best Safari Cuisine for 2012. We offer our guests a true oasis just minutes from the heart of Arusha. Onsea House can be your “home-base” between safaris or climbing Kilimanjaro, or before you head to the coast or Zanzibar Island. What’s more, you can help us support the work of the iThemba Foundation’s Baraa Primary School Project and other responsible tourism initiatives. 

The name ONSEA is a derivate from the Panthera Onca - known as jaguar or onça - and is the American brother of the African Panthera Pardus - known as leopard or panther - which is one of the most famous animals in Tanzania.

Onsea House - Your stay can work wonders!

Since July 2006 we founded ONSEA HOUSE Country Inn & Guest Cottage in Arusha, and plan to further develop and market it as boutique hotel concept. Onsea House Tanzania Ltd is a fully licensed hotel and restaurant managed by Belgian Chef Axel Janssens in partnership with a local business partner and locally hired staff.

Axel Janssens got his degree in hotel  management and specialization in patisserie and chocolaterie at the International Culinary School of Bruges Ter Groene Poorte and after a  traineeship at Hostellerie De Hamert and Hilton  Brussels, he gained professional experience at Restaurant Villa Loraine in Brussels (first 3 star Michelin restaurant outside France), Allegro Moderato and Mosquito Coast, both in Ghent, and his own restaurant 't Keukentje in Sint Martens Latem.

How to Find It
From Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) - 30 to 40 minutes
Drive towards the Arusha-Moshi highway and choose the direction towards Arusha.
After crossing the villages of Usa river and around 2km after crossing the village of Tengeru, you will pass a bridge and signboard towards Moivaro Coffee Plantation Lodge on the left side of the road. Just 200 meter further down the road, you will find a big signboard on the left side of the road towards ONSEA HOUSE Country Inn & Guest Cottage. Take the dirt road for a little more than 700 meter. The entrance and parking space of ONSEA HOUSE are at the left side of the road.

From Arusha Centre - 7 to 10 minutes
Drive from the Arusha Clock tower roundabout, 'the half-way point between Cape Town and Cairo', via the Old Moshi Road towards the Kijenge roundabout (Impala Hotel); turn at the roundabout left towards the Arusha-Moshi highway. Follow the direction towards Moshi on the Arusha-Moshi road. 4,9 kilometers down the road (exactly 2 km behind the Oryx petrol Station and around 400 meter behind the first bridge where the road has protection rails at both sides), you will find a big signboard on the right side of the road towards ONSEA HOUSE Country Inn & Guest Cottage. Take the dirt road for a little more than 700 meter. The entrance and parking space of ONSEA HOUSE are at the left side of the road.
