One&Only Nyungwe House opening in Rwanda

Luxury resort on the edge of the Nyungwe rainforest in central Africa will welcome guests from October.

Nyungwe House, part of the One&Only luxury hotel brand, will open on 1 October 2018.

Set within the lush green expanse of a working tea plantation, alongside one of the largest and best-preserved mountain rainforests in Africa, One&Only Nyungwe House offers guests awe-inspiring jungle views.

There are 23 rooms and suites, designed using local African craftsmanship inspired by Rwanda and offering a contemporary look and feel.

"It is an absolute privilege and an honour to confirm the opening of One&Only Nyungwe House, the second addition to our Nature Resorts portfolio, and to provide our guests with the rare opportunity to explore this remote and authentically wild location," said Philippe Zuber, president and chief operating officer, One&Only Resorts.

"Our guests will be able to trek with chimpanzees, or discover the endangered Mangabey monkeys, walk among majestic mahogany trees and spot exotic birds, orchids and butterflies."

There is also a One&Only Spa, which will offer a range of exclusive beauty and wellness treatments using organic natural skincare products from luxury South African brand Africology.
