Sora Lodge Lalibela is an Ethio-German, 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 two consecutive years (2015 and 2016).
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.
THE NAME “SORA LODGE”
Sora Lodge offers a unique and spectacular view of the Asheten Mariam Mountain, the valleys and countryside villages around Lalibela. All rooms in our three-storeyed main building have a large private veranda facing east, providing unforgettable views of the sunrise, while the sunset can be watched from the common verandas facing west. Apart from the rooms in the main building, we have beautiful rooms in traditional round huts, likewisewith large private balconies and amazing views.
Our property has a beautiful garden with shady trees where guests are welcome to explore, enjoy the tranquility and fresh air and watch eagles sailing over the valley.
Nestled against the edge of the valley below the main building, our restaurant is also built in the shape of a big, traditional round hut with a large patio, offering a 270° view of the valley and mountains. Our restaurant is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Western and Ethiopian breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here. Our ingredients are always fresh and a large share is grown in our own fruit and vegetable garden.
