I had dinner at the restaurant. The food and drinks were really good and the service was amazing. Our server Theophile was very helpful and friendly and provided the best service I’ve had in Kigali! Would definitely recommend to friends and will be back again soon!

Our party of 5 stayed here one night at the end of a two week trip through various African safari lodges. It was the perfect place to start decompression! The rooms are spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable. The staff is friendly and anxious to serve. We had a chance to chat a couple of times with the owner and he was outgoing and informative, telling us about Rwanda, Kigali, and the changes that he has seen over the last 25 years. Breakfast buffet is taken around the pretty pool area and offers enough variety for everyone. Highly recommended!

The small but comfortable room has a king size bed equipped with mosquito netting which we did not use. The bathroom is also small but adequate with a good sized shower. Amenities included a hot water kettle and a French press for coffee; shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer in the bathroom and a good wifi connection. The room also had a small patio with a table and chairs, perfect for indoor dining when you are in quarantine waiting for your test results. Staff is friendly and was helpful hunting down Covid test results when there was a problem with one of our test codes.

Gatare Isiaka was the best! Amazing service and always went the extra mile - he made each and every morning of our stay in Kigali start off perfectly! He always had a smile to share and gave us extra information about this beautiful place.

Love this property! Rooms are fantastic, food is delicious and service is out of this world! Gatare Jsiaka took great care of us during our stay as did everyone here. Can’t speak highly enough about The Retreat and our time in Kigali
