At Five Volcanoes Boutique Hotel, it is the little touches that ensure you have an almost perfect stay. Before leaving for gorilla or golden monkey trekking in Volcanoes National Park, you will be kitted out with gaiters to keep your trousers dry in the dewy rainforest. After your exhilarating return, the staff will whisk away your muddy boots to be cleaned, and present you with a refreshing drink, warm towel and soft slippers so you can relive your experience in complete comfort. After a delicious dinner, you find your bed being gently warmed by an old-fashioned hot-water bottle.
Add to that a heated swimming pool, a sauna, a massage service (both excellent for unknotting sore muscles after a day of hiking) and a high-speed Wi-Fi connection, Five Volcanoes ticks all the boxes for a flawless stop outside the national park. It has been built to accommodate those with physical disabilities and has a stand-alone cottage for guests wanting complete privacy.
