If you're looking for the Ritz Carlton, this likely isn't your cup of tea (and good luck finding it in Buja). But this place was an oasis considering the first night I stayed at the Hotel Beausejour Iramya (where one star is too much).
Burundi is going through a tough time these days, and it appeared as though I was the only guest for a prolonged period. The staff here were wonderfully accommodating, kind, and resourceful - the speak very good English (rare in Buja), they repaired a pair of shoes I had lost the sole on for less than a dollar, and mended a shirt I managed to put a hole in at the aforementioned awful hotel, making sure the repair was symmetrical on the other side. Amazing. Another reviewer commented on sunbathing - unsure why you'd come here to tan - go to the Club du Lac if you want that. I never used the pool but it looked clean and well kept, especially given surrounding foliage. The surrounding greenery is beautiful, internet was fast enough, AC gloriously cold, mosqui nets high-end top notch wall connected versions, and housekeeping well managed. Safes in all rooms for the security conscious, and decent nightly rates. The food was really excellent - I saw their kitchen and what they can do in there is nothing short of a miracle. Real coffee and croissants in the morning - lovely. It is almost adjacent to the US embassy, but hires only one unarmed guard if that is a concern.
In short - a lovely stay, would stay again, would recommend to anyone.
