For those who watched the horror from millions of miles away on Television screens, undoubtedly the most vivid memory would be the images of the floodlit tennis courts and swimming pool of the Hotel Mille Collines, made famous as the place where over a thousand innocent beings took safe shelter from the senseless killings taking place all around them. The story of the hotel and its manager at the time, Paul RUSESABAGINA, was portrayed in the award winning film, Hotel Rwanda.
Today however, the hotel is flourishing under much more peaceful circumstances; having being purchased in 2005 by MIK-COR Hotel Holdings. The Hotel has bettered its services and upheld its proud reputation of personalized services in a beautiful, exotic setting.
Boasting a four-star status, the Hôtel des Milles Collines, has 112 exclusive rooms and executive suites with balconies, all of which include modern amenities such as satellite television and internet access. The hotel also caters to the business aspect of its clientele, with a conference and seminar area that can seat up to 250 people.
It’s not all work and no play however. A renovation last year saw the remodeling of rooms and a new lobby jazz bar for relaxing evenings. The hotel also features a state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis courts and the world-famous swimming pool for recreational purposes.
Modern luxuries and an ideal locale have taken the Hôtel des Milles Collines, with its noble, storied history, into the new century of first-class hotel business.
