Optimally located for exploring the historic treasures of Lalibela, Mezena Lodge rests on a mountaintop high above the valley below, overlooking an expanse of hills and plateaus stretching to the horizon. The new property opened in September 2017 to provide high-end, ecologically conscious accommodations that set a new standard for quality and hospitality in Lalibela. Guests enjoy private quarters in 30 stone and thatch bungalows designed by a noted architect who has combined traditional design with state-of-the-art comforts in harmony with the natural setting. Cobblestone paths wind through the grounds, connecting the bungalows with the common areas. 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 on site feature fine Ethiopian cuisine, including freshly ground Ethiopian coffee each morning. Recreational facilities open or under development include a large swimming pool and spa offering a steam room, sauna and massage. Mezena Lodge hires its staff exclusively from Lalibela, supporting its commitment to being a vital community member and source of local economic wellbeing.
