Have you planned for this weekend already? There is alot on offer and many new places you need to discover.
For example in the quieter Nyarutarama suburb of Kigali there is a little known all-in-one Bougainvilla Boutique Hotel. It is the former residence of the Prime Minister. This place situated at KG 9 used to be heavily guarded but now its gates are wide open all day and night.
KT Press sneaked into this palatial facility for review.
To spend a night in the former prime ministers room, you will have to dig into your pockets and pay $150.
The place is breathtaking, perfect meals are served and it’s a perfect getaway for couples looking for pure relaxation and privacy. There is also a sound proofed discotheque, free Wi-Fi and private parking.
Speaking to KT Press, Mustapha Ngoga the receptionist said that the boutique hotel has a lot on the table to offer.
“On Friday and Saturday we have music of all kinds that allows people to relieve their stress, and ladies have special discount on drinks,” he said.
However, during week days the boutique hotel still hosts special events for people after work.
For example, Monday is dedicated to old school music while Tuesday’s are for Reggae and Wednesday’s are for ladies night. There are live performances.
On Thursday, the hotel offers a 20% discount on all local drinks.
