"Beautiful views of the lake"
The staff was very friendly and the food was good (in particular the fresh avocados from the garden).
We had spectacular views across the lake from everywhere in the hotel, including from our room." See all these reviews: 9n in Rwanda
"Kivu Lodge review"
The generator usage times were a little variable resulting in no water in the room, albeit temporarily, whilst the infinity pool was being topped up. It also was off earlier than anticipated/scheduled the first evening – not a major problem, more a re-adjustment to the early “lights out”
Perhaps another point to mention; the lodge has only been open since early 2017 and, commendably, employs several local staff. The information from the owners mentioning helipad and boat access clearly intends this to be a place for visitors with (possibly/probably) higher expectations and demands than us. This said the lodge should therefore expose the staff to further levels of training to meet these (possible/probable) expectations." See all these reviews: 10n in Rwanda
