One&Only Nyungwe House exterior

Experience community building in Rwanda

One&Only Nyungwe House, Rwanda

Nyungwe House, a new One&Only property opening in Rwanda later this year, gives guests the unique opportunity to explore the culture and wildlife of Africa without skimping on luxury. Inspired by local traditions and the surrounding forest, the resort’s villas offer a private retreat where guests can enjoy incredible views and get up close with local wildlife – the perfect way to unwind after a busy day of kayaking and mountain biking or just indulging at the spa.

The resort focuses on building experiences, enhancing spiritual and physical well-being, and even giving back. Visitors have the chance to get their hands dirty by investing in the community through projects like building fences, working the land, or even caring for the animals on the property. On-the-go picnic lunches are on the menu – featuring fresh local ingredients that will give you the nutrition you need to keep your energy up.

Despite the modern comforts offered at Nyungwe House, the resort is located in a traditional working tea plantation in the mountainous south-west of Rwanda. The property is now accepting reservations for October 1.
