Very good place for horse riding for children and having a quiet weekend with the family. There is a big football field and volleyball field also. You can walk around the football field with tools for exercising.

We returned to Yaya after over a year and found some amazing changes: the gardens are really beautiful and the quality of the meals and restaurant service have improved a lot. This is a great place for athletes but also for anyone wanting a tranquil setting for dinner to escape the city or unwind before going home. As before the... More

We had a special event in January 2015. We had a great experience from the venue to the staff who worked hard to make the event special. It being close to Addis Ababa and yet far enough made our stay more enjoyable. The venue caters for young children really well with designated playground. We can only comment on the traditional...

We were delighted to find this retreat so close to Addis, where we could get away with a group of family and friends for a weekend. The location is very accessible and the rooms are modern, comfortable and attractively furnished. We loved being able to dine and sit outside at tables with thatched roofs, while the children played on the... More

This resort is the perfect place for elite runners wanting to explore the Ethiopian way of training. High altitude, stable weather and good variety of the nearby trails. Easily reached from the airport with the included pickup service from the hotel. Full-board options with three meals per day offers several dishes and adequate nutrition for heavy physical activities. The beautiful... More

Stayed at Yaya Village for 4 nights. Complimentary shuttle with a stay of three nights or more. Driver was there waiting, even though we were nearly 30 minutes late. Safe transport and friendly smile. Arrived at check in, was offered to look at a choice of rooms, picked the one liked the best, very comfortable. Upon check in as well... More

The yaya village hotel and resort was a very nice end to a long Ethiopian journey. It is located high in the mountain above Addis, in a setting surrounded by trees. The resort is a retreat for world-class runners and it contains a short and longer running track, as well as several soccer fields. The food at the resort is... More

Yaya Athletic Village was a great find. Had told my cab driver (a gem) to help me plan my Sunday. Took me to Entoto which had stunning views of Addis Ababa plus the St.Mary's church is so well kept. Next stop was Raphael Church. This is not so well known do there were hardly any tourists. But the visit was... More

We stayed in Yaya in November 2013 after spending 3 days in Addis, and found it an oasis of calm after the hustle and pollution in the city. The rooms are large and comfortable with TV and a nice en suite. There is a fridge but no tea/coffee facilities, in the cooler months extra blankets may be needed , just... More
