I have spent two night at Lewi Resort In Hawassa. It has the best service in the town from its well furnished and luxuriously styled bungalows to a catchy flora in the compound. as it is adjacent to the lake Hawassa, many labeled it 'Love Lake', it deserved a perfect place for honeymooners. The resort has swimming pool overseeing the... More

I stayed here with my children and it was a great deal for the money. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, bathrooms clean and functioning, and there was television. We only stayed one night, but we did eat breakfast at the restaurant, which was great. We had the quanta firfir and some tea, but they had a great selection... More

We had a wonderful time at this resort. I enjoyed the monkeys and seeing the birds out of my window. The food was great and the staff was very accomodating and pleasant. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I will recommend it.

This hotel is set on the shores of Lake Hawasa and despite having a nice garden area, shorefront, evening restaurant and pool, it is let down (like many hotels in Africa) by having the badge of being "made in China" which means many aspects of it don't look right or don't work. It is however quite modern compared to some... More

We loved this place. After 10 days of dust and simple lodges we really enjoyed staying in the big and nice room on the water front (monkeys and waterbirds came very close). The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the food of high standard. We will visit beautiful Ethiopia again and will return to Lewi Hotel.

After having spent almost a week in some really simple places (though nice most of them), this hotel was a nice surprise. The room was very comfortable and clean. I had a massage at the spa and it was very good. The food for dinner and breakfast was very nice. Recommended.

Fell in love with the monkeys outside our window. Compound is gorgeous. Hippos, exitic birds, papaya and banana trees... Beautiful. We changed to a room on first floor with screened windows (it's actually a little cheaper because it has gardeb instead if lake view... screen window worth it! Staff incredibly kind and helpful. Love it!

I'm writing about the hotel in town, not the resort hotel on the lake. It is one of the nicest mid-range hotels in Ethiopia. They have a lovely coffee shop in a treed courtyard in front of the hotel, which is used by the people of Hawassa as much as guests. Rooms are nice, each with their own hot water... More

On the way to the south, we stayed one night at Lewi. The accommodations were beautiful and spacious; the staff friendly and helpful. The hotels's setting (by the lake) is beautiful (with boat trip available to guests) Breakfast was good; dinner was OK.
