This is a great lodge and the staff is very friendly. We came by bus from kigali and they arrange a taxi to pick us up from Musanze (8000) and take us to the small dam. Phone ahead to arrange. The boat to the lodge is 10,000 EACH WAY (at 20,000 in total, it is a bit of a sting)....

Really a nice place with excellent food and fabulous views over lake Ruhondo and over to the Virunga volcanoes. Great place to relax not far from Kigali. The Grilled Tilapia was a real treat, straight from the lake and grilled to perfection. Probably the best fish I've had in Rwanda. The breakfast was also really good The staff was super...

We spent a weekend with Rwandan friends from Musanze at the Ruhondo Beach Resort. We found it clean, well run, with beautiful grounds and some of the best fish we have had in the country. The grounds have walking paths that are great for birding and enjoying the lake. The views to the Volcanoes National Park were stunning and the...

We called early that morning and the manager answered, giving us very specific directions on how to reach the resort. Upon arrival by boat we were welcomed, and given a personal guide to do some hiking around the peninsula. We ate a delicious...

We summoned the boat from the lakeside and were treated to a delicious lunch of grilled tilapia while enjoying a glorious view. We had a look at the rooms and would have loved to have been staying - the prices are reasonble, both for the rooms and the food

We chanced upon this hotel during our recent trip to Rwanda, and a boat trip on Lake Ruhondo. We did not stay - however enjoyed a couple of hours there taking in the surroundings and making the most of the restaurant! The hotel is perched up high within its own gardens, overlooking the beautiful Lake Ruhondo which is marvellously calm...
