We stopped off with friends for the package lunch, which was excellent and worth every cent. The tomato soup was very good and the bozena sheru delicious. Our friend had the fish which looked a bit dry and the pieces small. But the rest was excellent. The view is awesome and the furnishings and decor 5 star! Great staff and... More

This was a very busy place, with far too many people coming and going. You get the feeling that it's trying to be a "barefoot luxury" type of place, a place to unwind and relax after busy sightseeing but failing badly. Our garden room was top to bottom clear glass which meant that all windows had to be curtained thus... More

We spent one night at Kuriftu, arriving on Sunday early afternoon (entire resort over-crowded with guests), and departing Monday afternoon (much quieter, better atmosphere). The positives: 1) Spacious, clean, beautiful rooms, with wonderful hot showers. 2) While the food (both lunch/breakfast buffet, and ordering from the menu for dinner) were average at best, the selection was large and I could...

I travelled on 2 separate occasions in April and May 2016 for a training programme with UNDP Ethiopia. I could say that the place has always been well maintained. The room attendants never ran out of creative ways to ensure that a new decoration is designed for my bed every time I come every afternoon after the training. I love... More

This is a great getaway right outside Addis Ababa. I would not recommend it for a long stay but just for one or two nights, its perfect.

Loved the concept of the rooms. They were made of stones and this kept the room pretty cold at night (just how I like it). We had dinner the evening we arrived and I picked up a bad case of food poisoning from the shrimp in avocado salad (I think that's the name and that's my major suspect)that put a... More
