Wow - I almost don't have words for how incredible this place is. It really is jaw dropping. Its very elegantly done and my husband and I spent a totally blissful couple of days there drinking in the amazing views of the Virunga mountains and great lakes of Rwanda. The rooms are heavenly and perfect for honeymooners! The food is fabulous, the salmon pate and bread and butter pudding in particular! The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and welcoming had they tried. I would recommend this place extremely highly!
