it is now life fitness centre. It has a nice playground for kids and the swimming pool is great for small kids (though when I went it wasn't clean at all). food is not good and service is poor; but it is a great place for kids to play around. there is also a gym and tennis court

Not the most amazing place in Arusha but has a gym, pool, bar and play area for children. In need of a bit of TLC. the food is ok and probably has some of the best sushi in Arusha.
