The Retreat is a 20-room luxury boutique hotel created by the American owners of Heaven, designed by Italian architects, and brought to life by an extraordinary team of Rwandan builders and craftspeople.

The Retreat by Heaven is Kigali’s first eco-friendly resort featuring solar electricity and locally-crafted furniture from a Tanzanian sustainable teak farm. Located on a peaceful, tree-lined street in the Kiyovu neighbourhood, the Retreat is minutes away from the city center, and ideally situated for any trip to Kigali.

The Superior King Suites are our most luxurious and spacious king rooms, with front and rear private patios, double sinks with teak vanities, indoor rain showers and outdoor showers with comfortable seating on the back terrace.

The Deluxe King Rooms have private patios, single sinks with teak vanities and indoor rain showers. They are wheelchair accessible.

All rooms include 24-hour reception and security, coffee and tea and fiber internet

In July 2020, The Retreat will open its new wing with 8 Luxury Pool Villas. Each villa will feature a private saltwater heated plunge pool, and bedrooms with full living areas and a 120 square meters of private indoor and outdoor space.

Luxury amenities include expansive custom-built rooms with peaked ceilings, front and rear private patio areas, bathrooms with indoor and outdoor rain showers, bathtubs, a heated solar powered swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, private plunge pools for the Villas, spa and fully equipped open-air gym.

Fusion Restaurant at The Retreat, takes culinary traditions from Italy, Mauritius and Morocco and blends them into a single harmonious offer. Perched beside The Retreats glorious saltwater pool and native plantings, Fusion is the most elegant spot in Kigali to explore new flavors and experience first-class hospitality.
