Paradise Malahide is a rustic, intimate and exceptionally friendly guesthouse, which we discovered on our last trip through Gisenyi in September 2011. The lodge is owned and run by a local Rwandese woman who lives here with her son. Before the genocide of 1994, Paradise had been their family home and when they returned after the trouble had come to an end, they rebuilt it and opened as a simple guesthouse in 2003. It has retained a very homely atmosphere, feels personal and seems very well cared for - the immaculate gardens with vast quantities of brightly coloured Bougainvillea, are testament to that!
Our view of Paradise Malahide
Paradise Malahide is a charmingly rustic and simple lodge. It's not luxurious or pretentious, and doesn't feel out of place in the surrounding environment. It's well run, and with great food and a lovely location we think it's excellent value for money.
We discovered Paradise Malahide on our last visit to Lake Kivu.
