Overview of One & Only Gorilla’s Nest

Rwanda’s popular Volcanoes National Park is home to the famous gorilla trekking experience that provides ethical animal encounters with endangered Mountain Gorillas and Golden Monkeys in their natural habitat. Come for the gorillas and stay for the endless beauty of the region, where you’re able to scale the dormant Virunga Volcanoes or explore the wonders that the surrounding rainforest has to offer.

A stay as beautiful and rich as the Volcanoes area itself, the One & Only’s Gorilla’s Nest is an opulent, 5-star getaway in one of Africa’s favourite safari destinations. The open, treehouse-style architecture of the jungle-chic rooms and main building immerses guests into the surroundings with the best views of the rainforest and volcanic hills in the distance. It might be in one of Africa’s most remote and off-the-grid destinations, but guests will want for absolutely nothing at Gorilla’s Nest – from service to dining to facilities, you’ll find only the very best when staying at this resort.

General Facilities

Volcanoes National Park is a breathtaking area full of possibilities. Tucked away among towering eucalyptus trees, Gorilla’s Nest emulates this atmosphere, giving guests the sense that endless adventure awaits. Offering more than just its good looks, the resort features a top-of-the-line fitness centre and meditation deck that connects you with nature as you work up a sweat. No One & Only property is complete without the signature world-class spa and Club One, where guests are able to soak in the sparkling infinity pool overlooking the gardens or indulge in treatments inspired by the ancient tribal remedies of Terres D’Afrique.




Like every other aspect of a One & Only resort, Gorilla’s Nest provides an incomparable dining experience that will have you counting down the seconds to your next meal. Ingredients are sourced fresh from the resort’s own thriving garden, while the sumptuous meals are prepared with authentic Rwandan flavours with contemporary twists and flairs. Everything, from the first cup of coffee in the morning to the last bite of your delectable desert at night, tantalises the taste buds and will have you begging for more.

To keep your dining experience as fresh as the ingredients used in your dish, meals can be taken in a variety of different locations throughout the resort. Have breakfast under the cool shade of an enchanting tree on the forest floor. Tuck into lunch in the Nest, a treehouse-like dining area open to the beauty and tranquillity of the surrounding rainforest and bamboo. Or escape the evening chill by enjoying dinner around a crackling log fire.

And of course, no meal is complete without a well-paired beverage. The Nest Bar serves a range of refreshing beverages infused with its signature ingredient – the rose petal. Surrounded by rose bushes, Gorilla’s Nest infuses the petal into all its bespoke cocktails, lemonades and teas to make for a flavourful drink unlike any other.
