Journey into the Heart of Rwanda

Welcome to Kigali, the jewel at the heart of Rwanda!

Renowned for its pristine streets, colourful culture, and captivating beauty, Kigali stands apart as a bucket-list African urban landscape.

Its vibrant energy will blow you away as you explore the bustling fabric markets, indulge in the richness of Rwandan coffee, and savour the diverse local cuisine.

An Urban Oasis

A luxurious getaway in the heart of the city, The Retreat offers world-class comfort with an eco awareness.

Think every modern convenience combined with solar-powered electricity, organic toiletries, and furniture with a unique backstory from a Tanzanian teak farm. 

The 20 carefully crafted rooms offer a harmonious blend of elegance and comfort, encouraging guests to unwind with private patios, outdoor rain showers, and personal saltwater plunge pools

The in-house restaurant, Fusion, celebrates global flavours presented with traditional Rwandan ingredients sourced from local farmers to set the stage for a dining experience beyond the ordinary.

Unique Experiences

Alongside the breathtaking Rwandan views, fine dining and top-of-the-range accommodations, The Retreat offers a plethora of activities to enjoy!

Immerse yourself in the cultural adventure of making ‘urwagwa’ (banana beer) – mash, grind, toast, and conclude the fermentation journey with a delightful tasting experience.

Alternatively, spice up your experience with a cocktail-making class led by a trained mixologist who will guide you through a spectrum of flavours, innovation, and freshness found in their cocktail recipes. Or seize the opportunity for an engaging and interactive cooking class, where you’ll unravel the secrets of a beloved local dish firsthand.

Walk With Giants

We have, of course, yet to mention the elephant – or should we say, the gorilla – in the room…

Intrepid travellers from around the world visit Rwanda for its famous gentle giants.

Join a life-changing Mountain Gorilla Trekking Tour kicking off in Kigali and taking you through the magical Bwindi National Park.

You’ll receive essential briefings on gorilla trekking etiquette before making your way through the lush habitat that’s home to 300 mountain gorillas – nearly half the global population!

A rare opportunity to encounter these magical creatures in their natural habitat, it is an absolute bucket-list adventure for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts.
