Best Resort in Debre ziet Ethiopia! Great service, Great food, Great facilities! Will definitely recommend it. General manager Eskinder and other resort staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. Whether for business or pleasure Kuriftu Resort is a great place to base yourself.

This resort promised a lot but gave nearly none of that. There was no wifi in the rooms and the lighting outside was horrible in the dark. There were also several accidents while our stay because of that. This resort is barely wheel chair accessible and the view isn't nearly as great as people say. Theres boats but are hardly... More

Visited this spa twice in a space of 4 days. One of the very good property facing the beautiful Kuriftu lake. The management has a wonderful week end package, in which only in Birr 300 you are allowed entry, lunch, and are entitled to 25% discount on the services. This was an amazing relaxing day, with an amazing spa service.... More

went on a weekend gateaway with my husband just last week. The hotel has an old wing is on close proximity to all the amenities but the new wing has more gorgeous rooms (in my opinion). We stayed in the new wing because the new wing was fully booked. On our cooperate rate, we paid $99 at the old wing... More

I went with my family for a Sunday day out. The service at the lunch buffet was non existant. The buffet lunch was not tasty either. Even the beef burgers my kids ordered were not tasty and under cooked . We were then astonished to see the dessert tables empty! I asked one of the waiters and his response to... More

This is a 5-star hotel by most standards not just Ethiopian standards. It has all the amenities that a modern hotel offers. This is a Spa resort and one massage is included with each room's rental. Extra massages are really inexpensive (about $10).

I came here with a friend. I brought a cake as it was her birthday...apparently their is a corkage fee for cake brought in from outside, but the management said there was no charge for bringing in the cake that said 'Happy Birthday'. It's good to see that there is a flicker of life in customer service in Ethiopia. I... More

From the moment we took the right left (getting here is moderately challenging) to the time we took our last, the time spent here was pleasingly serene. We arrived before noon, which at first seemed like a mistake because the room wasn't ready; however it was actually an advantage as it allowed us early access to the buffet, our choice... More

This is a lovely place. For the december holidays my family and I decided to stay in Kuriftu Resort while we explored the city of Debre Zeyit and climbed the near by mountain called Ziqwalla (which I would highly recommend). The resort is a lovely place to relax and there are lots of fun things to do, like kayaking and... More
