Text description provided by the architects. Inspired by the rolling hills of Rwanda and the thatched design of the King’s Palace at Nyanza, Bisate sits woven between the lush growths adjacent to Volcanoes National Park. Bisate reflects the innate organic culture of Rwanda and reflects sophisticated spaces around every turn. Craftily designed the spherical rooms and public areas add bespoke and sustainable solutions to the intricate and difficult surroundings. The design is a celebration of modern luxury and a unique culture which has stood the test of time, becoming a platform from which the guest experience departs.

Due to the nature of the site, all the structures had to undergo prototype development in Cape Town, South Africa, be disassembled and reassembled on site in Rwanda. Because of the remote location all systems and services are fully incorporated and off-grid.
