    The Emeraude is indeed a beautiful hotel, by far the best in the area and the only one that nears western standards. Not surprisingly, the prices for food and drink are slightly more than the other local hotels, but for the improved surroundings, views of the lake, good wifi it is worth it if you can stretch to it. The prices are currently still the same, however the “single” is actually a double bed, and the “double” is a twin room, with either 2 doubles or 4ft’s- I am unsure. It is currently rather unknown by local taxi and mototaxi drivers, but if you ask for the Iposita (post office), it is down a small track to the left of this building (which has an old looking sign labelling is as the Avenue de Residence). You will see their newly built tent hut’s (not sure on prices but they come with their own fixed structure ensuites) then the hotel just next door. The staff are lovely, the manager and owner both very keen to make the hotel a success.

    The Emeraude really is a lovely hotel. I live in Rwanda and regularly visit for food, drink + some r ‘n’ r. It offers a very tranquil spot, with stunning views, attentive and friendly service as well as great food and drink. You do pay for the ambiance but in my opinion, it is well worth it.
