This brand new hotel is set on an escarpment in the Simien Mountains National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The views all around are breathtaking.
The hotel is clean and extremely comfortable. Bedrooms are spacious and well thought out. They have used a Rammed Earth technique (also used to build the Alhambra in Spain), which is sympathetic to the natural surroundings.
Their hospitality was warm, friendly and personalized. We enjoyed talking with the staff about the local cultures and flora/fauna (inquisitive Gelada monkeys!).
We made regular excursions into the Park with a Ranger. We saw monkeys, Ibex, Simien Wolf (which is a rare sighting). The hotel prepared a boxed picnic lunch for us on these days. We were also welcomed into the home of a local farmer for coffee.
This is a very special place to visit. We had a magical time and we would return in a heartbeat.More
