In the centre of the Volcanoes National Park, the Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel is beautifully set in landscaped gardens looking over the undulating mounds of the stunning Virunga volcano range, and just moments from jungles dense with gorillas.
The open plan of the lodge is all landscaped gardens and wooden-beamed buildings, with stone steps edged with verdant plants leading to cosy cottage style rooms. Inside, silk furnishings and wooden features provide an opulent but cosy feel, alongside rainfall showers, four poster beds and, in family suites, private sitting rooms. Or, go one up with a VIP cottage, with a dining table, wooden-carved seating area and polished wood floors alongside stunning views and private gardens. All stays here are full-board, and you'll enjoy three-course meals among the stone flooring and thatched roofs of the restaurant alongside endless mountain vistas.
But, naturally, the main draw here is trekking with mountain gorillas as you hike through verdant forests, where you'll get to spend a magical hour just metres away from the majestic creatures. There's also the chance to rent bikes and cycle through the rainforests, as well as watching golden monkeys jump through the bamboo forest. Perhaps absorb yourself in the Rwandan countryside while gently floating through the 'land of a thousand hills' with canoeing tours, then, the thatched roofed spa and swimming pool are wonderful ways to end days of adventure.
