Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel

The delightfully open-plan Lake Kivu Serena Hotel sits delicately on the pristine white sands of Lake Kivu’s shores. It is surrounded by almost unbelievable tropical gardens and offers both a glorious escape from Kigali as well as access to Volcanoes National Park with its world famous mountain gorillas. The hotel is just outside the small town of Gisenyi, about a 20-minute flight from Kigali International Airport.

Set on its own private beach, the hotel has six suites each with a king-sized bed, luxurious bathroom, integrated work space, private sitting room, and furnished veranda with lake views. The hotel’s 66 luxury rooms are tastefully furnished and have private bathrooms. All rooms have air conditioning, satellite TV, and WiFi. And of course room service is always available.

The Kiyaga Restaurant has wonderful views onto the swimming pool, the palm trees, and the white beach at the edge of the lake. Breakfast is buffet-style, with lunch and dinner being both buffet and a la carte. Rwandese, African, and international cuisine are always on offer. In addition to enjoyable theme nights, there are also monthly beach parties with live music, beachside buffet, and a beach bonfire! Below the pool and overlooking the beach is Ziwani Café, offering a generous range of snacks and drinks. This is the venue for beach BBQs, poolside cookouts, and evening sundowners with live local music and traditional Intore dancers.

Activities at the hotel center around the lake and its beaches, including boating, swimming, volleyball, fishing, and hiking.

The Hotel has an extensive range of facilities and amenities. The Maisha Health Club is the perfect place to stay fit. A dedicated conference and social events center can accommodate all your meeting and conference needs. The hotel also has a business center, travel desk, taxi and limousine service, gift shop, newsstand, and travel kiosk.
