I flew into Moshi on the 30th of December and haven’t stopped. I’ve been flat out setting up our newest venture The Haria Hotel. The Haria is a small hotel/hostel in the main street of Moshi. It’s a budget, no frills accommodation with a rooftop bar & cafe and of course stunning views of Mt Kilimanjaro
Team Vista has had a great relationship with The Haria for many years. It’s always been our favourite place to stay each time we are over from Australia. And as of January 1st we are thrilled to announce we have taken over as new managers.
We decided to close for the first few days to get the rooms prepared and it’s been trades person central! So far we have installed a new cover upstairs on the rooftop, set up the kitchen, had new sheets and bed covers made and are in the process of having all the furniture repaired, installing new lighting on the rooftop, general repairs and maintenance.
After a few hiccups (as to be expected), we are making progress. Our landlord, the lovely Mr Haria has been fantastic, helping us to organise painting, new mattresses for all the beds and has been bringing us appliances to use in the kitchen each day.
We are looking forward to Team Vista supporter, Pippa arriving tomorrow from Perth. Pippa is a chef and has worked at resorts throughout Africa. Pippa will be working with our cooks here to set up a new menu and get the kitchen set up in time for our official opening party on Saturday the 17th January. If you are in or around Moshi, please come celebrate this exciting venture with us and check out our hotel website - www.hariahotel.com
