Four Points by Sheraton, a Marriott Bonvoy brand, has opened a new 154-room hotel in Kigali, marking the brand‘s debut in Rwanda.

Located in the heart of Rwandan capital, Four Points by Sheraton Kigali blends vintage and modern design elements with distinct local touches to create a vibrant aesthetic and a compelling sense of place.

Bleisure appeal

Designed to appeal to both business and leisure travellers, the hotel offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, approachable and relaxed design, and stylish comfort in the heart of the capital city.

All 154 guestrooms offer panoramic views of Kigali through floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as being equipped with a 55-in smart TV, ergonomic workspaces, and complimentary high-speed internet. The property comes complete with 12 suites, including three Family Suites and one spacious Loft Suite.

Distinctive dining and amenities

The property features three distinctive dining venues offering a wide selection of global cuisine. The all-day-dining restaurant, FP Social, blends European and international cuisine with flavours from East Africa while the snack bar, Brew Bar, has a menu of light snacks and the brand’s signature Best Brews programme which offers local craft beers on tap. Guests can also enjoy a variety of cocktails, fresh juices, or light bites at Coco Fizz, the pool bar terrace.

Four Points by Sheraton Kigali offers more than 700 sq m of dedicated meeting space featuring nine flexible meeting rooms including a 314 sq m ballroom that can cater for up to 200 guests. All meeting rooms are equipped with sophisticated AV facilities and connectivity through high-speed WiFi.

Leisure amenities include a state-of-the art fitness centre with cutting-edge equipment available 24 hours a day, a spa and an outdoor pool for guests to relax and recharge for the day.

New benchmark

Hatari Said Sekoko, CEO of Marriott’s real estate partner, New Century Development, said: “We are very proud to work with Marriott International to bring the Four Points by Sheraton brand into Rwanda and we are confident this hotel will set a new benchmark for hospitality within the country.”

Matthias Widor, general manager, cluster general manager for Kigali Marriott Hotel and Four Points by Sheraton Kigali, said: “I am thrilled that Four Points by Sheraton is set to be among the top contributors of Rwanda’s tourism growth and am pleased the hotel has created more job opportunities for the local energetic youth and will support the growth of the country’s tourism, hospitality, and conference and events sectors.”
