I have to agree with previous reviewers -- the website undersells this place. Nyungwe Forest Lodge is one of the most beautiful places I have stayed. The location is stunning -- a series of beautiful bungalows perched at the edge of the rainforest on a luminescent green tea plantation. The rooms and main lodge are beautifully designed, using Rwandan materials, and the service is impeccable. We visited the spa twice and had fantastic massages -- while colobus monkeys watched from the trees. The staff is extremely attentive and very well-trained. it is worth taking a day off from excursions just to relax and enjoy the place for a day or two.
We stayed for three nights and I could have stayed for a week. The only drawback is that the food could be improved upon. However, it is certainly no worse than food you'll find anywhere else in the country, and sometimes was not bad. This place is definitely a very special retreat and well worth a few days of downtime.More
