Introducing One&Only Rwanda



Inspiring Travel Company | 29 Jun, 2018

At the Inspiring Travel Company, we’re always looking for the next great destination, new exciting places to stay and the most incredible experiences around the world. We’re incredibly proud of our worldwide portfolio, and of our partnerships with some of the very best hotel groups across the globe. So then, we’re thrilled to showcase One&Only’s latest additions to their Africa portfolio, One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest.

One&Only Nyungwe House, due to open in October 2018, is a unique property nestled in the heart of Rwanda’s rainforest, sheltered by a dramatic mountain landscape. The property is launching One&Only’s new Nature Resorts collection, which will also include the exquisite One&Only Wolgan Valley. These resorts promise to deliver “once-in-a-lifetime” moments for guests, in some of the world’s most stunning natural locales.

22 luxury rooms and suites are located in six beautiful wooden villas, designed to blend seamlessly with their surrounds. Every room offers its own open fireplace, and guests can enjoy exceptional wildlife spotting experiences from private decks with views out over the Nyungwe Forest.

Secluded, remote and totally unique, this is a destination like no other. Guests will be personally welcomed at the airport, and can then look forward to spectacular scenery during the luxury road transfer to the resort, stopping to visit highlights and enjoy a picnic along the way. To really arrive in style, why not transfer to the resort by helicopter, for a unique aerial view?

Once at Nyungwe House, which has been created from a former tea plantation, you’ll be able to explore the amazing Rwandan landscape along with local guides and visiting experts. Trek through the rainforest, go mountain biking or kayaking, learn about local culture, visit the chef’s garden, visit the outdoor yoga deck and enjoy a song around the bonfire. Because One&Only know that each and every visitor is different, your experience will be tailored to you – from personalised wellness treatments to private, intimate dinners.

The abundant wildlife and fantastic nature that surround Nyungwe House are truly awe-inspiring. There are dozens of primate species in the rainforest here, many that are unique to this part of the world.

Superb dining options and a commitment to investment in the local community means we’re sure this will be a favourite with Inspiring Travel Company clients for years to come.

One&Only will be unveiling One&Only Gorilla’s Nest in July 2019, which promises to be another stunning addition to their collection. Virunga National Park was Africa’s first designated national park, and Gorilla’s Nest occupies a prime position in the foothills of the mighty Virunga volcanic range. For even the most casual of nature enthusiasts, a visit here is guaranteed to be unforgettable, with the chance to encounter the majestic mountain gorilla, which roams free here.

Combining both properties makes for a luxury, all-inclusive and completely unique way to experience one of the world’s most exceptional wildlife and nature destinations. Alternatively, why not twin a stay in Rwanda with a visit to one of One&Only’s other properties; perhaps One&Only Royal Mirage in Dubai for a contrast between city and nature, or a trip to One&Only Cape Town to see a different side of Africa.
