One&Only Nyungwe House in Rwanda

In south-west Rwanda, south of Lake Kivu on the border with Burundi, the Nyungwe National Park covers an area of 1,020 km², and includes rainforest areas, bamboo groves, grasslands, swamps and marshes. This is where you will find the last mountain rainforests in the world. The One&Only Nyungwe House is located on a tea plantation, which offers you a wide range of activities.

Living with a view of the countryside

The spacious suites and rooms provide you with a lot of space. The large windows mean that you have a breathtaking view of the forest and nature around you. The private balconies are also perfect to just allow your gaze to wander over the unspoilt natural landscape and its wild inhabitants. The rooms have large beds and their own fireplaces, so you can make yourself really cozy and comfortable. On top of that, all the rooms have the latest technology, such as large TVs and iPads, so you have access to everything there is to know about the tea plantation and the landscape.

Discover the plantation tea’s facets

Even the dining room gives you a generous view over the inspirational natural world. You can dine and feel comfortable here from sunrise to sunset. Organic and local ingredients – many of them straight from the Chef’s Garden – are the basis for the menus created by Chef Treasure Makwanise and his team. The natural flavors of Rwanda and the rustic, traditional cuisine are interpreted in a modern way and presented at their best. We are always delighted to use the tea grown on the plantation to give a meal a special flavor.

If you just want to enjoy tea, you can take your seat in the tea lounge and take part in a traditional tea ceremony.
