Kuriftu Resort and Spa


Sitting on the shores of Lake Tana, Ethiopia's largest lake, Kuriftu Resort and Spa is the ideal place to escape to and unwind. The resort consists of 14 spacious traditional stone cottages, all with two bedrooms and set around a gorgeous pool offering breathtaking views of the lake. The stone cottages are attractively decorated with a minimalist approach, creating a spacious feel. The service in general is excellent, with a very calm and relaxed atmosphere being created, and free massages on offer.

The rooms all consist of a four-poster bed, lounge and en-suite as well as an in-room bar. There is also plenty of outdoor seating and a spa, so relaxation outside in the warm weather is welcomed.
