Connecting our guests with Kigali & Rwanda

Our experiences connect our guests with Kigali and Rwanda. We have a passion for Rwanda, and for its people, and we want to help you feel that same connection. Our hotel concierge team is excited to plan a unique and memorable stay for you. From horseback riding on Mount Kigali to visiting Question Coffee with a “crop to cup” experience, from local cooperatives and art galleries to taking a walking tour of the neighborhood, we know Kigali best and look forward to sharing the highlights with you.

Explore the flavors of Rwanda in Heaven’s organic garden, visit local farmers’ markets, and cook up new recipes in our Rwandan kitchen! Immerse yourself in the culture of Rwanda by taking a day trip to the village, learning basket weaving or how to prepare the “urwagwa” local banana beer.
