Lewi Hotel and Resort is another great place to stay and dine in Awassa besides Haile Resort .This might be slightly cheaper than Haile though. The open air restaurant on Lake Awassa is amazing. . Best place to have lunch. Beware of monkeys though !!

If you are looking for a relaxing experience away from the hectic and stressful life in the city, this is the place to go. The hotel is overlooking Lake Awassa, you can take a one hour boat ride and see the hippos. It is tucked away from the main road in a very quiet location next to the Amora Gedel... More

Had a lovely time at Lewi although the rooms need a revamp and some investment. You can't beat the view and most of the hospitality of the workers. The breakfast and freshly squeezed juices were incredible. It would be good if the company invested more money I.e. for maintenance

Though this resort is rated 4 four star, I don't really think it would rate the same in the developed world. They have a lot to improve and work on.
