A Gorilla Experience Like No Other

One&Only to open luxury Rwandan retreat at prime gorilla sanctuary.

By Terry Christodoulou 24/10/2019

Keen to embrace a mountain gorilla a la Sir David Attenborough (sure, Dian Fossey too), well, know there’s no need to rough it in the Rwandan hills with One&Only to open a second luxe location in the area.



Cushioned in the foothills of the Virunga volcano range, One&Only Gorilla’s Nest – opening November 1 – provides guests a front-row seat to one of the world’s most popular mountain gorilla sanctuaries. The resort is located in Kinigi, northwest of Rwanda and five minutes from Volcanoes National Park – home to the world’s highest number of mountain gorillas.



The impeccably designed private sanctuaries seamlessly blend with the location, Gorilla’s Nest offering an intimate collection of 21 jungle-chic havens – the impressive Ingagi and Silverback suites the go-to for ultimate luxury.

One&Only Terrace



Each space is designed with nature front of mind, though that doesn’t mean missing out on heightened comfort – think private decks, in-room fireplaces and outdoor bathtubs set high amongst the trees.



Menus – designed by executive chef Brian English – make use of the abundant local produce alongside an onsite chef’s garden. Private dining experiences are an option, alongside lighter, relaxed meals at Pool Bar and a cheeky cocktail from Nest Bar.

One&Only Gorilla's Nest Spa



After a days trekking with these glorious animals – relax into a spa treatment that indulges plant-based African ingredients and is delivered in collaboration with Terres d’Afrique.



Prices start from around $4400 per night.
