The Retreat by Heaven
The New York Times named The Retreat in Rwanda one of the top new hotels in the world in 2018. The 12-room luxury boutique hotel is situated on a tree-lined street in Kigali City Center and only 20 minutes from the airport. The Retreat is an eco-friendly resort and uses solar electricity, organic toiletries, locally-crafted furniture, outdoor showers, private terraces, a yoga and meditation room, spa, large heated saltwater swimming pool with jacuzzi and diving rocks, and an open-air fitness center.
Fusion Restaurant and its Swahili-inspired bar, located at The Retreat, offer delicious farm-to-table international cuisine, while Heaven Restaurant (reached through the Retreat’s “Stairway to Heaven”) offers an innovative modern African menu. The Retreat is the perfect choice to host guests for 1 night or several days as it offers innovative, curated cultural experiences and exciting activities in and around Kigali.
