The award-winning company One&Only has announced One&Only Nature Resorts, One&Only Urban Resorts and One&Only Private Homes experiences that will complement the existing award-winning resort collection, set in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. The architectural design of each resort will celebrate the heritage of the location and development through to operations and guests will have an opportunity to ‘give back’ with hands-on, interactive, immersive experiences with the local community, each perfectly curated to the destination.
Two spectacular resorts will be introduced under the Nature Resorts brand: One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest, both located in Rwanda. Scheduled to open this year, the Nyungwe House is located in Gisakura, a working tea plantation, on the edge of the Nyungwe National Park. Luxury suites and villas will boast the fusion of modern design enriched with traditional African touches, each overlooking the vast African terrain with private decks and fire places. Guests can discover exploratory treks to observe chimpanzees, black and white colobus monkeys, grey-cheeked mangabeys and the Kamiranzovu Swamps and Waterfalls.
One&Only Gorilla’s Nest, located near the village of Kingi, will be incredibly positioned on the foothills of the Virunga Volcano range. Guests will be able to discover the magical habitat of Mountain Gorillas, a rare adventure. Bespoke accommodation will honour the location and natural elements will be woven throughout the resort, to inform the design of both the public and private spaces of the resort. Local African cuisine will surround a traditional Boma, providing the perfect location to share adventures from the day and enjoy fruit and vegetables from the resort’s garden. The resort will also offer an indulgent Spa and Fitness Centre, honouring the inspired surrounds with treatments using traditional African elements, as well as the latest state-of-the-art technology.
