This resort out of Kibuye town right on Lake Kivu has some excellent s/c cottages with satellite TV, an upmarket restaurant and offers boatrides.

There's actually not much more to do than relax, swim and have a talk with yuppie NGO-staff or the local rich that spends their weekends here.

Unique Qualities: Well, you can use the place if you badly need a treat; otherwise I would not recommend it for ordinary travellers. The location however is almost perfect!!!

There are other places to stay in Kibuye. You can always come here for just a lazy afternoon.

A cottage (huge bed) cost $23 but I negotiated $16. Keep also in mind the high additional cost for food!

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: ask motorbike taxi
Price: less than US$20
Theme: Hotel

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
