Yaya Africa Athletics Village
Yaya Africa Athletics Village is the first of a kind in Ethiopia, established with the aim of providing sport tourism. The Village is found 2500m above sea level, which is suitable and preferable for athletics trainees and sports fans. Champion athletes have trained at Yaya and proved successful in their race including Olympic Games and IAAF’s World Athletics Championships. Our Staff strives to ensure your stay will be both relaxing and unforgettable. With an amazing garden view, horseback riding, children’s playground and sports amenities we have fascinating attractions for not only athletes, but families, and other tourists.
We have 40 luxurious, well-furnished rooms perfect for families, groups, or singles equipped with a safe deposit box, comfortable beds, and a heater.
Our all-inclusive sports village offers Olympic Standard running track with professional pacemakers, coaching and guiding for athletes, a basketball court, volleyball field, tennis field, a swimming pool, indoor games, along with health club facilities- a state of the art gymnasium as well as a spa including steam bath, dry sauna, and massage therapy.
In a serene garden setting, we have traditional cottage restaurants and modern upscale restaurants that cater local and international cuisines. This makes Yaya Village a favored picnic and leisure destination for residents of Addis.
We are also the first choice to host many events. We offer Multi-Purposed halls and our largest is Entoto Hall with a seating capacity of 500 people. The halls are complemented with an excellent catering service and are surrounded by wide garden spaces. They are perfect for workshops and performances.
