We were staying elsewhere, but wanted to check out the restaurant at Kuriftu and its gift shop. When we arrived, the bellmen practically carried us inside to reception - outside guests cannot do any snooping or looking around at all! If you are not staying in the resort, your only option to eat there is to buy a fixed-price meal... More

Debre Zeit has an opportunity to have amazing resorts and yet seems to fail. Since it's only an hour's drive from Addis, you'd think there would be at least a couple top-class lodgings to cater to well-off locals and scads of ex-pats and diplos, but alas! Kuriftu is typical Ethiopia: big ideas, mediocre execution... The developers invest in a giant... More

Wow! Kuriftu was a much needed rest for 10 days on our 2 month adoption stay. Talk about friendly, kind, caring staff. They virtually adopted our children who spent hours talking with them. They bent over backwards to help us be comfortable in a tough time during our initial adoption days. The facility is so pretty and the rooms spotless,... More

Kuriftu for me is taste you acquire. A taste for traditional settings and not many bells and whistles you find in many a modern hotel. But this too has its beauty. Traditional Ethiopian decor and building materials. Beds made of just cut trees etc. The scenery though is breath taking. Situated next to one of the lakes in the Debre... More

I was there for a workshop and all i can say is that the place made the work event even more cherish-able. the food was great and there was great Ethiopian variety... More

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
