One&Only Nyungwe House

West, Rwanda



Imagine a place immersed in natural beauty. Where once-in-a-lifetime moments are curated especially for you, inspired by the land, the wildlife and the people, and where every creaturecomfort is at your fingertips. This is a journey few will ever take. Welcome to One&Only Nyungwe House.



One&Only Nyungwe House is set on the edge of the Nyungwe Forest in Rwanda’s mountainous southwest. Part of a working tea plantation, her roots are well-established, while her recent transformation provides a distinctly modern energy with incredible design and every comfort you could ever need or desire. Charismatic hosts welcome you personally at Kigali International Airport, and take you on a breathtaking journey in a luxury SUV, or a scenic helicopter ride, equipped with every creaturecomfort. Stopping at remarkable points of interest along the way, with refreshments and a beautifully prepared picnic, the surprises begin before you’ve even touched down at the resort.


Every newly-transformed room and suite has been architecturally designed to blend seamlessly with the unique landscape, respecting the environment and perfectly framing the best aspects of Nyungwe’s natural beauty. With an emphasis on indoor and outdoor living, you remain consistently connected to your surroundings, as extended furnished balconies open up to lush flora, with mesmerising aspects over the working tea plantation and forest beyond. 22 luxury rooms and suites situated in eight stunning wooden villas, all designed to frame nature, with exceptional views of the Nyungwe Forest.


From stunning sunrise breakfasts that prepare you for a day of discovery, to leisurely all-day à la carte brunches served in bed or out amongst the wilderness, nutritious and indulgent options are always on the menu. Delight in active adventures, such as mountain biking, canopy-walking, and trekking. Feel the thrill of up-close wild encounters, from incredibly rare primates and reptiles to butterflies, exotic birds and indigenous flora. Soak up unforgettable moments, designed especially for you, from private dining on our elevated deck with flavours from the chef ’s own garden, to al fresco couples’ treatments at the brand-new spa.
