I have the pleasure of staying at this lodge frequently as it is situated close to one of our businesses. The lodge is a recent development, located in the Gisakura tea plantation on the edge of Nyungwe forest. Value for money is high. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable bordering the forest. The lodge has fantastic food with professional staff.... More

Wow, we loved it here!!!! Nyungwe is definitely more of a resort than a hotel, which we usually don't like, but because we came in the low season (tourism wise), there were only 8 other guests! The place is absolutely perfect! The rooms are clean, spacious, cozy, well decorated, and with great views right into the forest! We even saw... More

WOW...expensive, yes; however, worth it, YES! It is one of the most beautiful, luxurious places I've ever stayed with amazing service. The modern architecture and interior design is well-done with a location as stunning as all the photos show, and SO tranquil. We were super-relaxed in the most comfortable king-size bed ever! Each villa has a balcony out back that... More

Thoroughly beautiful lodge in a stunning location in the middle of a tea plantation. Very calm and relaxing. Enjoyed their own tea. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The food was mostly very good. Activities accessible from Lodge included trekking chimps and canopy walk for which you need your own driver and car. Both well worth the additional cost... More

Everything about this place is awesome. The tea strainer light fixture, the most amazing shower with a window to the forest, and the veiws of trees, trees and some tea! It was too cold to go for a swim in the pool, and I wished it hadn't been as the view from the pool was spectacular. We did a hike... More

Service and location are first rate. Hiking is accessible and the hotel makes all of it easy. However there are quite a few add ons such as renting driver and car, and any beverage other than coffee and tea with your included meals. Trail fees are also pretty steep ( $60-90) for hikes. Rooms are very comfortable and private, great... More
