We stayed here on a business trip in January. The spa is the best aspect of the hotel with excellent ambiance and professional masseurs. The hotel is right in front of the Kuriftu lake and the views are amazing - even from my room which was very close to the lake. There's a small gym with 2-3 machines and a...

Kuriftu Resort in Bishoftu (AKA Debre Zeiyt) . The Kuriftu resort is one of a chain of resorts in Ethiopia organized on an Ethiopian cultural theme. The accommodations consist of charming thatch-roof bungalos, each with private bath, veranda, fireplace (for cold months). The design theme is rustic with lots of leather and wood. The resort in Bishoftu is located on...

There was no hot water, there was noise all night next door (which the hotel facilitated by bringing firewood), no internet service outside the reception area. Full of families with screaming children, Chinese tourists, overcrowded pool, blaring awful music....and the church next door start praying at 3 am and never seems to stop. The hotel is located near the highway...

I'm being very generous with my rating as I really liked the design of the resort and the relaxing atmosphere of this weekend break. There's not a lot to do apart from walking and resting so two days should be enough to get a good sense of the place. We went kayaking as well which was a really good experience...

We've been to Kuriftu Debre Zeit a few times and despite what seems to be a consistently long check in process, the place is well worth it. The entire place is just a wonderful environment. Traditional style rooms and furniture are built using local materials; wood, leather and stone, you must see the ceilings. The spa services are the best...

In spite of the little details that can be easily corrected, this place is a fantastic option if you want to see a little bit more of Ethiopia without going too far from Addis. The property is huge and you seem to walk for a while before reaching the restaurant or the rooms. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable,...
