On the lakefront of Lake Tana, Kuriftu Resort is the place to relax and enjoy your surroundings in Bahir Dar.
The 28 en-suite rooms include two presidential suites. All have private verandas with views of the lake. The restaurant serves Ethiopian food and a selection of international dishes. Wines are supplied by the resort’s partner, Castel Winery. The resort also has a swimming pool with a view across the lake, a spa that offers a menu of treatments and a conference hall. Activities on site include kayaking, table tennis, billiards, volleyball and fishing in the lake.
Activities include visiting the monasteries on the far shores of the lake which are known for their beautifully painted mazdas, visiting the Blue Nile Falls, boat trips on the lake, and bird watching. There are 37 islands on Lake Tana, 20 of which are home to churches and monasteries that have extraordinary paintings and are imbued with religious and cultural significance. Debre Damo Monastery, on one of the islands and only accessible to men, can be reached by a daunting climb up a sheer rock face.
Kuriftu Resorts can also be found in Adama and Bishoftu, also known as Debre Zeit. Other partner businesses include Diplomat Restaurant, Boston Day Spa and The Vault nightclub, all in Addis Ababa.
