Kigali Archdiocese under the Catholic Church in Rwanda has completed St Famille Hotel Ltd at a cost of Rwf 8 billion for construction activities in four years.
The manager of St Famille Hotel Ltd, Father Bernardin Banituze has told IGIHE that the hotel will launch activities in June 2017.
“It will be operational from June 2017 after all preparations are done. It is the first high standard hotel of Catholic Church in Rwanda, completed at a cost of Rwf 8 billion. The church has other facilities in Butare and Kibuye dioceses,” he said.
Father Banituze explained that part of the money used for construction activities was a loan from Rwanda Development Bank ‘BRD’ and the rest contributed by Kigali Archdiocese.
“The hotel has 68 rooms, conference halls where the largest one accommodates 500 people. It has a modern swimming pool, restaurants, a very exciting bar and shop rooms,” said Banituze.
He explained that the hotel has neither space for night clubs nor will it let condoms which are against Catholic Church teachings.
He however said it is a leisure place accommodating honest people with good intentions.
