This resort is the perfect place for elite runners wanting to explore the Ethiopian way of training. High altitude, stable weather and good variety of the nearby trails. Easily reached from the airport with the included pickup service from the hotel. Full-board options with three meals per day offers several dishes and adequate nutrition for heavy physical activities. The beautiful garden was frequently used for breakfast. However, during the four weeks we stayed at the hotel we experienced the occasional water and electricity problems that are common in the whole area.
