Singita Kwitonda is new and (as a huge fan of the Singita brand) is nothing less than spectacular! We'd like to give a huge thank you to the team of Kate Murray, James Burnham-King, Alice Wilhelm, Jean Claude Muhoza, Lydia Nzayo for making our trip memorable. This is the best way to see the Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys. The rooms, food, staff, location, decor are nothing less than amazing. We truly expect this lodge to be ranked as one of (if not in the #1 spot) the best hotels in the world.
This brand new lodge is stunning. If you are seeking a luxurious home-base for your gorilla trek experience then this is the place. We had our own beautiful house with all of the modern comforts and amenities one could think of. Outdoor/indoor fireplaces, outdoor/indoor showers, Dyson hairdryer, bedside charging outlets, stocked minibar, daily laundry service, and spectacular volcano views. The bathroom has a massage table and my massage with Ilena was outstanding. The food and wine were delicious and we loved the tapas-style dining. Of course, you are here for the gorillas and Singita has thought of everything to enhance your trek. Their mudroom has warm jackets, gators, gloves, walking sticks, and backpacks. And they send you off with a delicious packed snack. When you return from your trek they are waiting for you with hot hand towels and big smiles. What a grand experience this was. Thank you for the memories Singita Kwitonda.…
We stayed here for two nights while visiting the volcano national park to see the gorilla. The suite was amazing and the staff was world class superb. Super friendly, very attentive and well organised team made the stay very enjoyable. In particular the assistant manager Lydia was exceptional.
This resort is brand spanking new but you can hardly tell as the staff is excellent. I love plants and nature and the landscape is new I can tell that a short period of time as the thousands of trees mature it will only be more spectacular
Every aspect of our stay was spectacular. Although the backdrop of the volcanoes was amazing, the comforts of the common areas and our room were like nothing before. More importantly, the staff is helpful and always anticipates your needs. Then there is the food. Creative, fresh and tasty. This is a life changing experience.
