“My son and I loved it; from the friendly helpful staff to the scenery! The dip in the lake and the trip to the island were some of the highlights. I love the fact that there’s no tv or wifi in the rooms and outside the lounge. I will definitely be returning soon. Thanks for a wonderful week!!!!”
“Very nice spot with small huts. Clean and lovely. Placed direct to Lake Kivo, with a large terrasse - which actually is a peninsula. You eat very good breakfast. Very friendly staff. Also worth dining here. Do not miss the grilled tilapia (fish) - it’s SO good. We can absoluty recommend this place.”
“We had a fantastic stay at this place. It is a real gem right on lake Kivu. We had the rooms on the edge of the lack and it was wonderful. So peaceful and relaxing with a great view and a little private beach. The food at the hostel was good and the breakfast very nice. However the main point of this hotel is the location.....SUPERB Highly Recommended”
“The location of this Hotel is perfect, you hear the fishermen bringing in their nets singing as the sun breaks over the mountains. The food was incredible. Something for vegetarians and meat eaters. Great coffee. Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, some have direct access to the beach”
“Stayed for 2 nights mid December 2016 and had a wonderful time. The Individual cabins were clean and and the food and staff were great. Its right on the lake and loved having our meals overlooking the water. Would definitely stay here again. Internet worked fine during our stay, but as said in other reviews only in the main area..”
“So many sounds and all so peaceful. I woke up to the sound of a myriad of birds twittering and tweeting and squawking. This was followed by the sound of the beautiful singing of hymns coming from a nearby church. And then the children in the school next door laughing and playing and singing. And finally the beautiful harmonies of the fisherman chanting songs called “ekiovu” and “amasare”, and sung in unison to encourage strength among the rowers as they return to shore after a night on the lake in their amato - three dugout boats bound together.”
“We entered an open air restaurant. There were no windows or doors, just a simple roof with pillars where planst climbed, orchids I believe. The birds singing mingle with the sounds of the waves against the bank. We could hear traditional music which echoed with our footsteps on this black volcanic gravel. Lake Kivu is so calm and peaceful. On the horizon of this magestical Lake we could see a little Island named 'Akeza'. Tourists and waiters are walking around. We could hear people speak English, French and Kinyarwanda. This beautiful place is called "Paradise Malahide". Sitting on a boat, we navigate the calm and peaceful waves. Reaching Akeza island we first went around it before finding a bank to dock our boat. Reaching "Paradise Kivu" the new Luxury Resort, we could see ocher roofs cottages, made of wood and volcanic rocks. Coffee, fruits and vegetables are grown in the enclosure. Nothing comes to disturb the quietness of the day. The horizon disappears far away bringing together sky and lake as one. Gisenyi is a paradise lost among thousand hills. ”
