Lalibela Lodge is the culmination of my dream.
You could say that it is the result of many years research, to create a special place where guests enjoy the comfort and security of the very best accommodation, from where they have the complete freedom to explore the cultural and historical richness that is my hometown, from which I have left to travel extensively throughout Ethiopia but to which my heart belongs and always sings, each time I return.
The hotel is made up of a series of individual bungalows with a range of twin, double and triple rooms and a restaurant which I started to build in 2010 after graduating with a BA degree in Business Management from Bahirdar University in 2004 and then working extensively both around Lalibela as a local tour guide and then for other travel companies all over Ethiopia.
The experience I gathered during my time as a national tour guide, and very importantly the knowledge I gained from the vast array of hotels, lodges and campsites I stayed at along with the comments and feedback I got from my clients fuelled my desire to create my very own lodge.
With the help of my fantastic team, we were so excited when we opened our doors to our first guests in February 2012 and we hope very much to welcome you in the future.
