A NEW RE­SORT FOR RWANDA

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO HOTEL NEWS - —David Tse

Set on a work­ing tea plan­ta­tion at the edge of the largest swath of mon­tane for­est in Cen­tral Africa, One&Only Nyungwe House ( one­an­don­lyre­sorts.com; dou­bles from US$ 1,408)— the se­cond ad­di­tion to the Dubai-based brand’s Na­ture Re­sorts port­fo­lio—is a haven for wildlife lovers, of­fer­ing the chance to en­counter chim­panzees, L'Hoest's and colobus mon­keys, as well as an in­cred­i­ble pro­fu­sion of birdlife. Yet the un­tamed wilds of south­west­ern Rwanda’s Nyungwe For­est Na­tional Park are only part of this new moun­tain lodge’s al­lure. Af­ter jun­gle treks or even scenic he­li­copter rides, guests can swim lengths in the in­fin­ity pool, sign up for Afri­col­ogy-de­signed spa treat­ments (like the In­tonga Amasatchi stick mas­sage), kick back in the main lodge’s panoramic tea lounge, or dine on in­ven­tive African dishes like agatogo, a plan­tain-and-spinach stew here topped with spiced Nile perch. And with just 22 rooms and suites spread about the lush prop­erty, at­ten­tive ser­vice is all but guar­an­teed.
