We spent a week at Paradis and still remember it so fondly. Amazing staff, beautiful surroundings, fantastic accommodation, good value for money and one of our favorite places around the world. We can't recommend it highly enough. We traveled here in 2008.

I have been to many hotels in Rwanda but Paradis Malahide beats many of them in delivering services, their food is the best in Gisenyi, the staff is so helpful and friendly. And when you get a chance to visit the island just across then you will surely wish to extend your stay. NB: The proprietor has the best attitude... More

The entrance from the road looked almost like a hole in the forest. I am not used to receptions with gravel floor and only cut outs for entrance and windows. But Hotel Paradis Malahide has a rustic charm that comes to you. We stayed in chalet No 1 for one night, 22-23 of April. The room is not huge, but... More

The hotel is still a good bet - but its competitiveness and value is on the brink in booming Rubona. The charm of the place is a bit too rustic, the mattrasses and bath rooms are a bit worn out, and the pizza oven may challenge your patience. Nevertheless - the lake views still have post card qualities (at least... More

After a few days of intense trekking and basic living, Paradis Mulahide was truly paradise. The bandas are clean and nicely decorated, steps from the crystal clear water. Food was good, even if slightly overpriced, and staff was accommodating. A great place to relax by the water!

Fantastic location on the lakeshore. Plenty of local views to keep you here enjoying the ambience. Rooms clean. Hot water and good food. Staff really helpful and full of fun, especially Fulgence. Will miss this little gem.

Fantastic location, right on Lake Kivu, with its' own little beach. The views from the outdoor tables are amazing - you could spend all day chilling there. Excellent food and the staff could not do more to help, especially Fulgence who has a great sense of humour. We had a room with 3 beds and although there was not much... More

A wonderful hotel, with the friendliest staff and a gem of a location. You don't need to go anywhere else, just sit lakeside, relax and be spoilt rotten! If there are no rooms the staff will even arrange a tent for you and they go to every length to make sure you enjoy your stay. I'd be back in a... More

The view from the tables down on the water is amazing. Every meal you eat should be at the waters edge. The rooms are very nice and the staff is very very friendly. The restaurant also serves excellent food. I would highly recommend staying here.
