Is a family-run business. It was opened in October 2013 and has since become a very popular lodge in Lalibela, having won Trip Advisor's and Booking.com's Certificates of Excellence for four consecutive years (2015-2016-2017-2018). The lodge is walking distance (approximately fifteen minutes) from Lalibela's southern group of rock-hewn churches and is a twenty minute walk from the northern group of churches. While we are not far from the main village, we are tucked away from the buzzing town's life.


The word “Sora” has multiple meanings: First of all, it refers to a beautiful and green hill outside Lalibela. Second, according to the legend, it is the name of King Lalibela`s golden carpet. Third, “Sora” is a popular song and dance of Lalibela and its surrounding.

TripAdvisor Reviews

  This place was so nice. Great views, clean and comfortable room. Best of all were the staff - polite, thoughtful, flexible and responsive. I was recommended to stay here by a friend, and now I am happy to make a similar recommendation!

  We stayed at Sora recently in one of the new rock hewn rooms. The room is spectacular and the view from the private balcony is absolutely breathtaking. They are environmentally astute and their garden has some of the tastiest vegetables. Staff is great and courteous especially in the restaurant. They were the absolute best.

My one and only issue is that mosquitoes rule the land. I spent my nights fighting mosquitoes because there is no netting or screens on the balcony door. We slept with the bathroom window and balcony doors closed and we still were in battle mode. The room was warm due to no air circulation and we didn’t have good sleep. I hope they can at least add netting so that the cool breeze can flow into the drool from the balcony.
