Very unique hotel & great spa.

“Being able to stay in such a unique room right on Lake Tana was a great experience. This was one of the best hotels we stayed at in Ethiopia and had the most available adventures in the nearby area.”

— Berk, February 2017

Great location on Tana lake.

“The lodge is well located on the shore of Tana Lake, with a private boat docking. The interior of the room has a special atmosphere and it is furnished with typical Ethiopian furniture."

— Santhianna S, March 2017

A resort where service couldn't be any better!

“We stayed at the resort for three nights with my wife and son; we never had such a miracle full experience. If anyone wants to experience unforgettable and nostalgic experience, I can be a good testimonial!”
