Very nice! I might go back home this upcoming June - hopefully it'll be completed by then.

KAZANCHIS, Addis Ababa | Yemreha Spa and Hotel | Completed

Yemreha Spa and Hotel - COMPLETED

















I know this building, I'm trying to find a picture of it completed, it's near Meskel Sq. on Bole Road. I called it the "South African building" because it looks like their modern architecture, turns out the architect is... Ethiopian!

(working w/ a British firm, but w/e)

That's not the back. Its the side with a slight diagonal view of the back. Wow tho,---the spa industry is really booming in Addis Ababa.

I can't wait to go back to Addis so I can hit this spa up! Some of the spas I visited in Addis a few month ago were so luxurious (equal to the best in any Western Country) and yet, so affordable. I travel quite a bit and I find Addis to be one of the last places on earth where you can buy cheap luxury.

Thanks skyliner for pointing out the obvious . Simfan. I don't know if I'll have the patience to look for it but I'm sure its there. Its right next to the Min of Justice building. The last pic I saw had the asphalt all torn up n all.

Yes, that whole area is under construction and that specific building seemed impossible to access until all the road and rail work in the area is completed. I must say though that I loved the exterior of the building, especially the front. I found it to be very innovative yet simple and quality design.

It still baffles me how they found enough space to widen this road so much! We're talking about a road that was previously six lanes in width being transferred into a 10 lane highway(eight for cars plus two for the LRT).

If you knocked down many ugly walls...you'd be surprised how much space there is in Addis. Business establishments don't need walls...I'm surprised its 10 lanes though...you sure its 10 lanes?

It would have the width of a 10 lane highway if you include the LRT islands in the middle:
