I was on a day trip there. The property is admirably managed. The view of the lake Babogaya from the top of the resort is amazing. Services I tried and appreciated are the horse-ride, camel-ride, 3 course lunch, and boat trip. I felt the mini-zoo was a little out of place.

I was in Adulala resort last weekend with my colleges. The only thing I love from Adulala is it's natural beauty.Nothing is good except the nature. specially the food was very terrible, the staff didn't know how to serve and treat customers. Generally, it is not recommended to anyone with this standard.

Really enjoyed the food more than anything else. Staff is great. So much activities and loved the animals too. They actually do provide the services they said they do. Staff are great and friendly am surprised to see that after reading the others' review of the staff.

Brief trip just to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the country's main city, Addis Ababa, during stay there. It's a sprawling resort that's ideally located on the shores of lake Babogaya. Facilities/rooms/units were satisfactory, with significant element of novelty in terms of the furnishing and decor, using local Ethiopian motifs. The food/restaurant was not very good though. Staff...

Adulala Resort and Spa, in the theme of other Ethiopian resorts I have stayed at, somehow leaves me with a sense of frustration at what could be. Set in typically beautiful Ethiopian countryside with Babogaya crater lake as a feature prop and lush gardens teeming with birdlife, this should be an idyllic escape from the nearby concrete jungle that is...
