Chem Chem opened last year as a new high end safari lodge in Tanzania with a different concept. Located only two hours from Arusha Airport makes it a more accessible lodge than others. 8 luxurious tent is all they have and I expected a very personalized experience.
I stayed in one of their Luxury Tent which was beautiful designed and with freestanding bathtub in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, but the internet didn’t work in the tent and I had to visit the public area for internet access, not what I expected.
The concept is all inclusive and rates starting at 1.600 dollars pr. night. The food was fine, but far from the level of Singita where I just stayed.
My stay in Chem Chem was very short, but I talked with several staffs and they were very kind and delivered great service. Chem Chem has received 23 reviews on Tripadvisor and they are all 5/5. Impressive and unusual for newer properties.
Overall a great experience to the portfolio as it’s a unique design and great service in a beautiful location.
My opinion: Great experience.
