With luxury lodge living and dining, a stunning golf course close by and all the untamed nature you could dream of, it’s no surprise that this incredible destination is favoured by guests from around the world.
Make your selection from an array of beautifully proportioned rooms, ready for you to rest after completing a long day’s trekking. The incredibly well-constructed lodge is built in traditional style with thatched Rwandese roofing and all the impeccable accommodation at this exotic resort will entertain guests with unparalleled views of the lush blue-green eucalyptus forest and the charming villages and shambas beyond.
Tantalising treats await your taste buds at this wondrous resort. The magnificent restaurant at Gorilla’s Nest offers diners tranquil vistas over the resort’s lawns and gardens while serving home-grown cuisine native to Rwanda.

In the shadow of the astounding Virunga Volcanoes, it’s hard to picture a more beautiful setting for a round or two.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
