Out-of-this-world Accommodation

Located just 1.5 kilometres from Lalibela Airport in the heart of the northern highlands, Ben Abeba is easily the most unique place you’ll ever stay.

A truly striking sight, it is based on a traditional stone and wood build, with four ensuite rooms with  private terraces set into the hillside and overlooking the valley.

There is also a shared bar and garden area, a highly-acclaimed restaurant, and a festive barbecue area.

Traditional Dining with a View

Perched high up on a hill and often likened to a spaceship, Ben Abeba’s award-winning restaurant offers guests the opportunity to enjoy traditional Ethiopian dishes against a backdrop of extraordinary views of the valley below.
