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

My week at the Kuriftu resort (the venue for a reflection workshop that I was facilitating) was one of the most delightful interludes in my calendar which is packed with work-related travel. It's not often that I actually feel relaxed while working - but Kuriftu had everything that it takes to allow me let go of my stress and just... More

Kuriftu is a nice resort, the view and scenery is good. The hotel is currently under expansion and the new rooms are 5 minutes rough road away. No Shuttle and it's dusty to walk on foot. The rooms are good, but the lighting is not adjustable and almost dark. I found the service very poor. To start from the room,... More

I stayed in Kuriftu for a corporate retreat which lasted about a week. Gorgeous natural surrounding, great food and exceptional service. Spa facilities were also very clean and easy to access. Relaxation at its best!

Spa Resort !!! Firstly, the swimming pool, is ICE cold, has green slime and is very unhygienic. The only swimming pool that I know of in the world that you cannot enjoy a drink next to (not allowed). There is also a LOUD extractor fan constantly going from the kitchen. Most guests avoid the pool. Actually, there are only 6... More
