Having decided to travel to Rwanda for two weeks, we booked our flights and realised we would be arriving into the bustling capital Kigali at 1am late Friday night/early Saturday morning. It was going to be an adventurous trip which would push us out of our comfort zones at times, but after a 14 hour flight with three small children I wanted to spend our first weekend somewhere that I knew would be fantastic and that I knew would look after us. I turned to the Marriott.
With exceptional standards across the world I had no hesitation in choosing the Marriott for our stay in Kigali. I hoped the rooms would be clean, air conditioned, and comfy and I also hoped the service would be top notch. I wasn’t disappointed.
We were met at the airport by the Marriott’s transfer team and the sign with our name on was very welcome in a busy bustling airport. The car coped with our large number of bags easily and it made the twenty minute journey from the airport to the hotel incredibly simple.
On that first night, we all fell into bed, sleep came instantly and we awoke to a sunny bustling day in Kigali and made our way down to breakfast.
Breakfast in the Kigali Marriott is a thing of wonder. There are about 8 different stations with noodles, charcuterie meats, eggs cooked all ways (pancakes were the girls favourite!) breads, cakes, doughnuts and far far more.
Both hubby and I made the mistake of ordering omelettes both mornings we were there. I say mistake. It was not a mistake at the time they were delicious; however as we were then served an omelette practically every morning of our trip thereafter, we should probably taken advantage of some of the more varied breakfast items on offer at the Marriott that weekend.
After breakfast we made our way down to the pool with three excited little girls. For them holidays usually involve swimming pools and beaches and this was going to be a little different so it was nice for them to enjoy a couple of mornings in the pool.
The pool itself was a tad cold as it wasn’t heated but the girls didn’t let that stop them spend hours in it. The lifeguards around the pool were generous with the towels when they saw the girls had got cold and provided new ones when needed.
