With a five-star rating and the best weekend brunch buffet in town, the Kigali Marriott is a comfortable, modern, and relaxing place to stay.

Offering a perfect view of a lakeside sunset and wooden bungalows perched on stilts, Cormoran Lodge is the place to go to get away from it all. Kayak trips, boat rides, tea tasting, and general relaxation are all available from this small boutique hotel, and the expansive hotel porch is perfect for sundowner drinks and evening card games.
Operated by Governors Camp, the Sabinyo Silverback Lodge is a luxury hotel situated right next to Volcanoes National Park. It is the perfect place to stay while gorilla tracking, and the lodge’s beautiful mountainside location is romantic, quiet, and peaceful. The secluded rooms offer modern amenities, and the service goes above and beyond with coffee and tea room service in the morning, an all-inclusive meal plan, and truly individualized attention.
Situated on the calm shores of Lake Kivu in Gisenyi, Paradis Malahide is a paradise unto itself. Spend time lounging on their beachfront property with a book in hand, or hit the water with boat rides and kayak trips. The hotel interior decorations are decidedly lakeside rustic, but with certain amenities (like an included gourmet breakfast offering), the hotel is one of the best Lake Kivu has to offer.
Surrounded by lush green tea fields and mist covered hills, Nyungwe House is a destination unto itself. It is located next to Nyungwe National Park, and is close to chimpanzee trekking and many hiking paths. However, many guests find it unnecessary to leave the stylish property, and instead spend time lazing by the infinity pool overlooking the forest canopy, enjoying the hotel’s fine dining, and relaxing in luxurious rooms.
