Overlooking Lake Muhazi, a picturesque shallow lake surrounded by equally scenic hills is UMVA Muhazi —an eco-luxury lodge beautifully designed with rammed earth that hosted me in Rwanda.
My favorite African travel experience so far ❤️

STAYING AT UMVA
UMVA offers all-inclusive packages to their guests. Room rates start at $159 per head which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, & access to self-guided activities at the lodging like biking, bird watching, kayaking, etc.
Lodging at UMVA consists of;
The Pod where I stayed has floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, a balcony, and a shower with a breathtaking lake view 😍
The bungalow has a bedroom, a balcony, and a living room (with a king-sized sofa bed). It is spaciously designed for honeymooners, a family, or a group of 4 adults.
The birdhouse which is my favorite of all is a loft-styled tiny house with a lake view, perfect for a solo traveler looking for a unique stay!
The lodge has a total of 9 rooms and they can house up to 16 guests. Every accommodation at UMVA is ensuite and has a startling lake view.
There’s an in-house massage, a boutique, a restaurant, a bar, a studio, kayaks, a lounge, WiFi across the lodge, and a fire pit also overlooking the lake.
Dining At UMVA
UMVA has a communal 6-course dining concept here which I loved. Perfect for a solo traveler looking to make friends ☺️
Every communal dinner during my stay at the lodge was a warm, fun night with great meals, themed music, and great all-around conversations with the other guests I met.
We all ended up having breakfasts, game nights, and kayak sessions together. Certainly the highlight of my trip ❤️
