Set on a dramatic mountainous edge of the Nyungwe Forest, Rwanda, the charismatic Nyungwe House is a dreamy forest retreat.
Nyungwe House is a partner hotel of One&Only, a company with a portfolio of luxurious properties in some of the world’s most exotic destinations!
The house has 22 rooms and suites, occupying six wooden villas and beautifully furnished with traditional Rwandan art. The difference between categories is size, with suites providing more spacious accommodation. The six villas are linked to Nyungwe House’s communal buildings along wooden walkways.
The buildings are made out of wood, dark slate, and terracotta tiles, blending with the surrounding landscape. A chic reception area flows through to a pleasant lounge/bar, featuring comfortable seating around coffee tables, an inviting fireplace, a collection of books and games, and views of the tea plantation.
