Showcasing Rwanda’s finest cuisine, artwork and people, Heaven Boutique Hotel is an unforgettable place to stay in Kigali.
A social enterprise offering vocational training and empowering young adults out of the poverty trap and into skilled jobs. Since 2008 the staff are trained in all aspects of hospitality and are experts at making guests feel welcomed to Rwanda.
Heaven Boutique Hotel has gone from strength to strength over the years, with more amenities being added to the quirky little property. Today guests can enjoy a saltwater swimming pool, browse the curio shop for unique pieces showcased from local art collectives or dine at one of the best restaurants in Kigali.
The Fusion restaurant here is one of the most popular restaurants in Kigali, with travellers and local residents visiting for the fine culinary traditions and high-quality local ingredients.
Overlooking the swimming pool and rock gardens, the restaurant is one way to explore Rwanda, there is also a range of bespoke experiences for guests to explore the culture more.
From local tailor-made city tours, gorilla treks and canopy walks in Nyungwe Forest, to volunteer tourism excursions or private lessons in traditional intore dancing, the staff at Heaven Boutique Hotel are ready to share the gems of their small country with you.
With only 22 rooms spread out across three different properties, Heaven Boutique Hotel lives up to its boutique name with a focus on privacy and peacefulness. The Heaven Villa is a few doors down from the main restaurant and hotel, and the rooms are set in a contemporary Rwandan villa house. Each of the villa rooms has a private terrace and come in two sizes. The 8 Queen rooms are small and cosy, without air-conditioning, but have ceiling fans for the hotter days. The 4 Villa King rooms are more spacious and come with air-conditioning, for those worried about the African heat. Decorated in bright colours, with comfortable beds draped with mosquito nets, these rooms are great for families and couples.
The newest addition to Heaven Boutique Hotel are the Garden Chalet rooms. A swimming pool and open air gym next to 5 Garden Chalet King Rooms and 2 Garden Chalet Superior King Suites, these are the nicest and newest rooms on offer and are surrounded by peaceful gardens for experience nature in the city.
With a spa, gym, saltwater pool, yoga classes and weekly Zumba classes, Heaven Boutique Hotel has everything you need to feel fit and healthy.
Heaven and Restaurant has an award-winning cuisine, serving up exotic dishes with a focus on Rwandan and African flavours. Most ingredients come from local farmers or the onsite organic garden.
Heaven Boutique Hotel is a social enterprise with an emphasis on training, support and helping local people develop hands-on skills that they can use to support themselves. All the staff are local, and the food is sourced as locally as possible, and even the products in the hotel and gift shop are sourced from artist cooperatives in Rwanda. Heaven Boutique Hotel is a success story of local initiative and skill sharing.
