Lakefront Hotel in Gisenyi, Rwanda

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel celebrates the shores of this African Great Lake as a destination of astonishing beauty, where pristine beaches and the sparkling waters of Africa’s sixth largest lake come together in breathtaking fashion. Your arrival is greeted by a bright, open-plan lobby giving way to a private stretch of beach reserved exclusively for hotel guests. We welcome you to experience unparalleled warmth, hospitality and relaxation at our tropically inspired hotel in Gisenyi, Rwanda.

With guest accommodations, restaurants and a spectacular swimming pool nestled among palm trees and manicured grounds and gardens, our privileged waterfront enclave provides all the amenities you would expect from a resort considered by many to be one of Rwanda’s best.

Boasting gracious, personalised hospitality and abundant recreational activities on land and water, this 66-room getaway is the perfect choice for an extended holiday or weekend escape. Guests may choose from a selection of beautifully appointed rooms and suites and savour exceptional dining highlighted by the lakefront Kiyaga Restaurant and evening sundowners on the beach at Ziwani Café. A modern conference centre and outdoor event venues overlooking the lake set us among the area’s premier hotels for corporate and social gatherings.

Lake Kivu Serena Hotel combines tropical serenity and waterfront exhilaration to create a truly unique Rwanda resort experience.
