I think that the reason we went to the Simien Mountains National Park was the fact that we’d been blown away by images of Limalimo Lodge. The reservation process was very efficient and professional, and our experience there was really fantastic. The lodge’s biggest selling point must certainly be its location. The views are so dramatic and absolutely spectacular. Make sure you get up early at least one morning to admire the sunset. The cabins are nicely spaced out. So, you have your own space. The décor is a little simpler than I had expected, but that actually only adds to the sense of adventure. And the beds are comfortable and the showers work well. We also liked the communal spaces and both breakfasts and dinners were excellent. The service was also impeccable, with a special mention for Julia, who could not have been more pleasant and helpful. My only possible reservation would be the price. We definitely don’t regret having splurged out because our experience at Limalimo was magical. But, a few days later, we spent one night at Gheralta Lodge in the Tigray Region, which was just as marvelous… but three times cheaper.

Truely beautiful! Nestled on a peak with magnificent senic views on three sides. Very clean and modern with something of a modern ski chalet vibe. In addition to the wonderful design of the lodge, the chalets, the rooms, bathrooms, bed, etc were 4 star level. All of the amenities were wonderful including the fireplace lounge and bar and the gourmet quality food in the dining room. This is a simple hotel on the top of a mountain with spectacular views and the opportunity to travel and see the sights of the park We were on a tour with a different hotel every two nights and if I had a chance, this is the one I would return to. .

Staying at Limalimo Lodge was the highlight of our almost three-week trip in Ethiopia, during which we stayed in 13 different hotels. This is a wonderful lodge with breathtaking views from the restaurant and patio There is an outdoor fire each evening at cocktail hour with some surprise hors d’oeuvres served. They also make an indoor fire in the restaurant at dinner. Mingling with other interesting guests is easy. Domestic alcohol is included. The rooms, in stand-alone buildings, are large and comfortable, with good beds and nice bathrooms. Monkeys roam the grounds. Unfortunately, we were there for only one night, but should have stayed at for least two, if not three. The owner was most helpful and welcoming. The staff were great. Nice hikes can be taken from the lodge itself and it’s a good base from which to see the large park. However, because it is located just inside the park boundary, some driving is required to get to desired locations inside the park each day, including to see the Walia Ibex. There is no internet available. This lodge is much nicer and much, much better value than Bale Mountain Lodge in the Bale Mountains National Park, south of Addis. We highly recommend coming here, instead of there!

The Lodge was built to support the local village in the area which was not seeing as much tourism as some of the ones on the direct road to Simien National Park. You will be delighted by the views, amenities, and service the lodge offers. It is much better value than the Simien Lodge. Breakfasts are the best so that you can fuel up for your day of hiking. Lunch and dinners were simple and delicious.
