Stay in this upscale hotel located in the heart of Arba Minch. Designed to imitate the local construction style, Paradise Lodge is furnished and decorated with handicrafts from the 54 ethnic groups represented in this Southern Ethiopia area. Enjoy a dip in the hotel’s pool with a swim-up bar and outdoor TV, or enjoy a variety of spa and massage services offered at the hotel spa. The lodge restaurants offers international cuisine and local favorites, all prepared by the in-house chef with over 20 years experience in some of the finest restaurants in Ethiopia.

Each room at Paradise Lodge is accommodated in a private bamboo thatched hut in the traditional Gamo style. All huts offer an outdoor verandah, bathroom with shower, mosquito netting, and minibar. All huts are furnished with local handmade furniture and decorations that represent the local ethnic groups in the region.

Committed to building strong partnerships with the local villages, the hotel employs many locals and works to strengthen the communities in a variety of ways.

Paradise Lodge makes a great jumping off point for touring this part of southern Ethiopia. Explore the Great Rift Valley and the renowned Nechisar National Park. Explore her green grasslands and thick forest and bushland with abundant wildlife, all part of why it has received the notoriety of being East Africa’s hidden gem. Guests easily spot gazelle, zebra, and baboon. Spot some of the endemic bird species found here as well, including the kingfisher, stork, pelican, flamingo, and fish eagle.

Visit the Forty Springs, the fresh pure water in the forest rumored to hold healing properties. Spot crocodiles in the area. Visit Crocodile Ranch, where the feedings on Mondays and Thursdays is quite a sight, or visit the ‘crocodile market’ on Lake Chamo, a popular spot for spotting hippos, fish and birds. Enjoy a two hour trek on “God’s Bridge”, the isthmus that separates Lake Chamo and Abaya. Enjoy incredible views across both lakes. Visit Dorze Village, known for its uniquely shaped huts and impressive woven cloth.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
