The Retreat Hotel

Kigali, Rwanda

Mango Opinion

This is our favorite place to stay in Kigali. Every detail has been carefully crafted creating a beautiful five star boutique. The owners are so lovely and take great care of their team and it shows in the hospitality you will receive.

Set on a hillside in the relaxed Kiyovu neighborhood, shaded by jacaranda trees with a secure and well-to-do air you will find The Retreat by Heaven boutique hotel. This 12 room Five Star luxury boutique hotel is Kigali’s first entirely eco-friendly solar powered resort. It offers luxury accommodations and amenities in the form of expansive custom-built rooms with peaked ceilings. The Superior Kings offer front and rear private patio areas, bathrooms with indoor & outdoor showers. The Deluxe rooms offer a private patio and an indoor rain shower. On the grounds is a heated saltwater solar powered swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, spa and fully equipped gym.

The restaurant & bar offer delicious, local farm-to-table cuisine, refreshing cocktails and wellness menus. Fusion, the restaurant at The Retreat - takes culinary traditions from Italy, Mauritius, Morocco and elsewhere and blends them into a single harmonious offer. Perched beside The Retreat's glorious saltwater pool, rock gardens and native plantings, Fusion is the most elegant spot in Kigali to explore new flavors and experience first-class hospitality.

Every guest enjoys having a personal butler take care of every need or request while staying at The Retreat. The team is dedicated to providing their guests with unique experiences that highlight the best of Rwanda.
