Paradise Lodges, Hotels & Resorts in Arbaminch and Turmi are for those who seek an authentic and inspirational experience, while enjoying true Ethiopian hospitality: Travel Ethiopia in style and experience the local cuisine, indigenous culture and spectacular landscapes.

Our Vision and Goal

We strongly believe in community based eco-tourism, emphasizing the inclusion and development of the local communities and allowing them to be actively involved in the lodge’s management, development and profit making. By allowing the local communities to participate, they secure a sustainable source of income and therefore can maintaining their traditional way of life. Next to that, we support existing community initiatives, respect community leaders and seek to employ local residents so that most of the income generated from tourism activities stay within the communities and contribute to the local economic development. Together, our goal is to create an authentic, luxurious and comfortable tribal themed re-treat, which caters to your every need and desires while exploring the vast beauty of the Omo Valley.
