Paradis Malahide

Top choice hotel in Rwanda
Image by

Located along the shores of the Rubona Peninsula, this lodge continues to get wonderful reviews from loyal guests. Accommodation is in four apartments in a two-storey wooden house or in six circular stone bungalows scattered around an attractive tropical garden, but the highlight here is clearly the fab lakeside location. The atmospheric restaurant, which serves delicious Rwandan and international dishes, is another draw.

For a romantic escape, you can ask to be dropped off on nearby Akeza Island (US$60 per boatload), which belongs to Paradis Malahide.
