DandZu Resort and Lodge is a unique destination located in the heart of the Sidama Region of Ethiopia. Our resort offers a special lodging experience with panoramic views of Lake Hawassa. We provide guests with sumptuously appointed private, traditional Tukul or western style rooms and a cooked-to-order breakfast each morning. Our resort is a perfect escape for those seeking peace and tranquility in a beautiful natural setting.

Unwind In the Heated Outdoor Pool and Whirlpool

Our two seasonal pools provide the perfect setting for relaxation while offering a stunning view of the lake. We take pride in using the latest technology to design our pools, ensuring an optimal experience for our guests. Our heated outdoor pools are cleaned using state-of-the-art salt water and salt generation cleaning systems. This innovative approach not only creates a cleaner and healthier pool environment, but also eliminates the need for harsh chemicals.

With a variety of activities and attractions, there is something for everyone. Take a hike through the scenic trails and immerse yourself in nature's beauty. Or, if you prefer a more adventurous experience, try mountain biking or rock climbing. For those seeking relaxation, unwind by the poolside or indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment. In the evenings, gather around the campfire and enjoy the company of fellow guests.
