Overview & where we have been
''I dedicated my life to rebuild and reconstruct what was left, step-by-step reconstruction is a process''.Mrs. Kantengwa Anne Marie
Sixteen years after the Genocide, Hotel Chez Lando opened its new Barbecue, new Restaurant with Terrace and new Meeting Hall where comfort and light meet blossoming flowers. The architecture of the new additions blends with its environment; stylish and modern, it is matching the new face of Rwanda
Hotel Chez Lando was built by Lando and Hélène Ndasingwa in the mid-eighties. It was created with a vision to provide a quality environment where people of all social and economic backgrounds could meet to conduct business or simply mingle and have a good time. It was built on a stretch of grassy land along the main road to the only international airport in the country, long before the neighborhood became the bustling Remera commercial center it is today.
The hotel was partially destroyed during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda but the spirit of the founders prevailed, prompting Lando's siblings to take over, rebuild and expand. Hotel Chez Lando is managed today by Lando's sister, Anne-Marie Kantengwa. Hotel Chez Lando's daily and prolonged happy hours in the grill area have become a must for after-work relaxation for anyone living in, or visiting Rwanda.
