We spent two nights at Paradis following business in Musanze and Gisenyi. It was the perfect get-away from the traffic and busyness of the towns, and directly on beautiful Lake Kivu. Our 'rontelle' - a stone hut- had a comfortable bed with good mosquito netting, very dim lighting (so bring a flashlight or head lamps), and mostly hot water in the shower (it was good for one shower with a need to wait for the second). The bathroom was small but adequate. The food was good and the service was excellent. There is a full bar. We loved the grounds and the small island that you can row to in one of the wooden canoes - or engage a local to do the rowing for you! Birds and flowers abound. There were many international guests and we enjoyed sharing our stories around the 'campfire' in the dining area. Internet connection is available in the reception/restaurant area. On Saturday night we had a performance by a group of African dancers, which was excellent. A glass of wine watching the sunset, the kingfishers dive for food, and the local fishermen in their triple boats cannot be beat!
