About The Retreat
One of the first luxury boutique hotels in Kigali, The Retreat is the perfect place to stay in the city, whether at the beginning or the end of a Rwandan adventure. You’ll escape the bustle in this intimate boutique hotel, which is Italian designed with local influences all around. There’s locally crafted sustainable teak wood furniture, spacious custom-built rooms and suites, and an opportunity to completely relax. The suites offer slightly more space and have both front and rear private patios with an outdoor shower.
Take time in the day to enjoy the facilities. Soak in the salt-water pool, work out in the Heaven Fitness Centre or luxuriate in The Retreat Wellness with relaxing treatment.
Dining at The Retreat is the full gastronomic experience. The owners of Kigali’s premier restaurant, Heaven, had long dreamed of opening a fine dining restaurant in the city. Fusion, the new restaurant at The Retreat, is exactly this. It blends international culinary traditions with local Rwandan ingredients, creating a unique dining experience. Enjoy the picturesque surroundings of Fusion, which sits by the salt-water pool, rock gardens, and native plants. This restaurant is a five-star dining experience, with first-class hospitality, in one of Rwanda’s top hotels.
