My stay in Paradise Lodge was simply beautiful! It is a place that brings the true culture of Ethiopia. From the design to the staff everything was perfect! The views were to die for! The area was safe clean, and well managed. By its employees, and managers. I would highly recommend anyone to come, and visit, or even move there!

I was part of a large group staying at Paradise Lodge for 5 nights, ending on New Years' Eve. Our arrival at the lodge was just wonderful, from airport pick-up to the traditional coffee ceremony at the reception ... nice touch. Then we checked in. The minute you step onto the porch and take in the view, you might actually...

Best hotel in Arba Minch. Breathtaking views, free shuttle from the airport, friendly staff, great pool and good food. Rooms are basic and small. Family rooms have 2 double beds and a single bed can be added. All tours are easy to arrange once you arrive.

I made a point of staying here for a short business trip to Arba Minch, based upon the previous reviews of the hotel. Overall it's a good hotel, especially for a remote Ethiopian town. The staff are all incredibly friendly and helpful, and there's definitely that 'personal touch' feeling about the way you're treated. The food is also pretty good,...

We stayed here - two families with a total of three kids, ages 4 to 8 - and it was a perfect getaway. The lake-view lodges are simple, quaint and tranquil with lovely private patios overlooking the lush green hills and Lake Chapo. The staff are unbelievably nice and helpful, and they arranged a full package of tours for us...

By Ethiopian standards, Paradise Lodge is a good hotel. The rooms are chalets, ours had a fantastic view. The shower room was fine with plenty of hot water. There was a small fridge holding just bottled water. Our lodge had a lovely terrace overlooking the view - not too good for children, nothing to stop them toppling off! There were...
