Mezena Lodge

Lalibela, Ethiopia

Mezena Lodge sits on a mountaintop high above the Lalibela valley, overlooking an expanse of hills and plateaus stretching to the horizon. The Lodge hires its staff exclusively from Lalibela, supporting its commitment to being a vital community member and source of local economic well being.

Guests enjoy private quarters in 30 stone and thatch bungalows designed with traditional local architecture along with state-of-the-art comforts in harmony with the natural setting. Each bungalow has its own veranda with views over the town and mountainside. The spacious interiors have clean, modern lines and are furnished with wooden poster beds dressed in crisp white linens, a table with stools for seating, satellite TV and large, well-equipped bathrooms. The restaurant and bar feature Ethiopian cuisine, including freshly ground Ethiopian coffee each morning. Recreational facilities include a large swimming pool and spa offering a steam room, sauna and massage.

Mezena Lodge is within easy reach of Lalibela, which is famous for its rock-hewn churches, traditional markets and food outlets.
