JM Hotel JM Hotel

From a mere dream to a high end Resort at home

The Rutagarama family lived in Kenya for 9 years from 2000-2008. “From day one in Nairobi, we spent the first morning thinking of a business project we may initiate and run when back in Rwanda. Kenya being the world hub for  the tourism industry, obviously the hospitality management business came to our minds as top on our project list. We spent good times and thousands of dollars visiting lodges and beaches in Kenya, trying to learn how this business was being handled. Then I spent four years in schools specialized in hotel management. Back home in Rwanda, we started building Emeraude Kivu Resort, actually in our ancestral home area of Kinyaga”. Jeanne-Francine Rutagarama.
