One & Only Nyungwe House - a nature lover's paradise

Cost Per Night
Perfect For

Families, Couples & Honeymoons

Nyungwe House is a stunning property situated on a working tea plantation and on the edge of the protected Nyungwe National Park. Part of the award-winning luxury resort chain One&Only, Nyungwe House is a nature lovers paradise with the sounds and sights of nature right outside the rooms.

With only 22 rooms, Nyungwe House is small enough to feel intimate and cosy, but large enough for complete privacy if desired. Each room has exceptional views of the forest and expect wake up calls from the local endemic bird species that regularly turn up on the outdoor balconies.

The rooms and suites have open fireplaces for chilly evenings and air-conditioning for the hotter days, and each room is uniquely decorated with traditional Rwandan artwork, fabrics and furnishings.

Both the rooms and the 2-bedroom suite have their own private decks, which are perfect for a leisurely breakfast, or a sundowner overlooking the mysterious Nyungwe National Park.

Being a working tea plantation, Nyungwe House has many walks throughout the property grounds where guests can explore the foreign flora and fauna along the trails and try their hand at picking tea too.

There is also a heated rim-flow swimming pool with impressive views of the rainforest, a fitness room and a relaxation retreat spa with two spacious treatment rooms and a heated Jacuzzi. 

The main attraction on Nyungwe House are the treks into Nyungwe National Park to explore one of the oldest forests in Africa and the home for approximately 20% of all apes in Africa.

The property

Nyungwe House features 20 luxury rooms and two suites. The two spacious suites have two bedrooms each with king sized beds, en-suite bathrooms, a sitting cum dining room and large outdoor deck. The suites are perfect for families or friends who want some extra privacy and space, although the rooms are generous enough, and since the grounds of Nyungwe House are expansive, this property never feels busy or crowded.

Guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to things to do within the lodge, as Nyungwe House has lots of different recreational spaces. A poolside Boma and bar for reliving the daytime adventures, an on-site restaurant for sampling authentic Rwandan cuisine or international dishes. 


A Gym, garden terrace, forest viewing deck and hiking trails allow guests to admire the immense forest from different angles, and for those who wish to be more social a comfortable lounge area is open for reading, playing games and planning the following days' activities.


One on-site restaurant that caters for all palates. Local and regional ingredients carefully prepared, with sunrise breakfasts, romantic dinners over candlelight and lunches served in delicious picnic form during excursions.

Why Wayfairer

Despite being a luxury chain of hotels, One&Only is strongly committed to reducing their environmental footprint and an industry green leader. Their Australian property became the first hotel in the world to achieve internationally accredited carbon-neutral certification by greenhouse gas-certification scheme CarbonZero, and they are now working to achieve the same for Nyungwe House.

The property also takes the protection of the forest seriously, educating guests and offering both cultural walks and exploratory walks through the National Parks to spot chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys and waterfalls, all hidden within the mass of ancient rainforest.
