Great Bungallows
Hotel comprises approx 20 villas or bungalows, all of which are about 1 year old. The standard of the bungalows is outstanding, and I think makes this hotel deserve a 4 star rating instead of its present 3 star rating. What is disappointing however is the hotel's extremely poor wifi, which can only be reliably accessed from the lobby in the main building.

Gorgeous Views/Minor Issues
The hotel stay was quite enjoyable, with some minor issues. The rooms are huge and the beds are super comfortable. Views from the restaurant and future pool deck are amazing. It is on the side of Lalibela closest to the airport and about a 5 minute drive to the churches. (I don't recommend walking). Negatives: The prices for things were fair, but not well marked. Extra $ for the airport shuttle, but then were given 1 free transfer into town. The sauna was also $10 extra to use. The room was quite cool at night with no extra blankets in the room, and the water pressure was poor in my room, but heard it was ok in others. Also I missed the small note on the wall next to the toilet that told me I should unplug my TV overnight as it might spontaneously turn on. (Which it did). For the cost of the hotel room I would have thought these would have been included and wouldn't have experienced these inconveniences.
