I stayed there for two weeks in January 2022. The staff was 100% available and always ready to help. Although I was there for work, my journey felt like holidays with the lake view and the semi-olympic swimming pool.

We stayed there for three weeks and we did enjoy it thouroughly. The staff is very service oriented and we felt like home. The tailor is very useful as well as the people at the reception who take care of all your need. The lady at the boutique is very friendly and helpful too. We met the owner and his lovely wife and enjoyed their company. The owner is always wandering around and makes sure that everything is fine. We also delighted in walking along the shore after breakfast and spent some time sitting on a transat chair on the sand. If you really want to relax for good, this place will provide with all what you need. And something very important : the wifi does work non stop. Question of security : you feel really secure with the guard patrolling discretly in the property of an amazing 20'000 square meter. We will come back and experience again this friendly touch in an exceptionnal environment.

Wow! You must think of this place as a vintage wine. It has heritage. The old style architecture, louvred windows, wooden floors wow. And that’s just the half of it! The very mature trees in the garden filled with birds that chatter from sunrise to sunset. The wind blowing through the bamboo grove at the back of my room caused the bamboo to rub and produce interesting sounds. It was as if the bamboo was gently protesting being bothered by the wind. From the front of my room came the crashing of the waves on the beach from one of the region’s Great Lakes. Amazing! I understand why some describe this as a romantic place. And the friendly staff! Cynthia at the Front Desk is outstanding. The Chef can be inspired to delight. The blanket wifi over the whole place is among the best I have found. The gym was a little small. I was glad there was no competition for the treadmill. Definitely love to visit again.

I first stayed in this hotel in 2013 - after having stayed in other hotels closer to town, I was disappointed by the poor quality and high cost of the food. Returned there (not by choice) in July 2021 - quality of food still poor, and prices too high. Forget about getting any service on Saturday and Sunday evenings, when the place is inundated by local families! While I enjoyed having a beach-side room, with a pleasant veranda from which to work, the combination of the above issues and the huge distance from town (forgetabout their "navette", it is always too busy taking customers to/from the airport) make it isolated and offering no alternatives to the restaurant for those without a vehicle. Plus...the hygiene of the swimming pool is poor - I picked up a case of giardia from swimming. If you want to stay on the shores of the lake, choose another place!

There is a personal touch that makes the difference to a relaxed stay ! The direction and the staff are very service orientated and try to ensure everone's comfort. The location really adds to the charm of this hotel being on the shores of lovely Lake Tanganyika. We recommend the morning boat ride to see the local wildlife.

The hotel is comfortable and rooms well appointed. It’s a lovely setting right on the lake. My favourite area was a lounge adjacent to the events tent where the water comes up to the wall. Sometimes it takes a long time for your room to be cleaned (late into the afternoon occasionally). Breakfast is quite simple. The restaurant service is slow most of the time. The pool and beach area are very popular with expats who flock to the hotel on weekends, which creates a lively atmosphere and adds come company when the hotels is quite empty. The gym is very basic and focuses more on cardio machines than weights.

This is jewel hidden on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Perfect place for a tourist or business person who has loves simplicity and elegance. Modest rooms, helpful staff, good wifi, great restuarant and meals, good restaurant, good swimming pool are but some of the things to enjoy. Hotel is located in silent place with birds chirping and insects making noises in the trees. A few minuted away from the city centre. Quite refreshing.

This hotel is so perfectly located, I really enjoyed after a day of work walking on the Tanganyika shore, it was just magic... the pool is huge and the light arrangements are really beautiful and delicate in the evening. The staff at reception are amazing, helpful, super fast, they take care of the little details to offer you a perfect stays. Rooms overlooking the lake are beautiful, and it is such a pleasure to wake up early and see the sunrise and the fishermen passing by on pirogues.. I would warmly recommend the place... and really it is not too far from the center... 15 min drive is really acceptable for such a luxury....

A delightful lakeside hotel in beautiful peaceful garden setting. My room had a lake view, and was well-appointed and quiet. The pool and pool area are first-class, and the atmosphere, food and service in the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner was excellent. Super-friendly and obliging front-desk personnel - all of them! Highly recommended!
