Nitesh Ranjan is the Cluster Wellness Manager for One&Only’s two ultra-luxury resorts in Rwanda. He is responsible for curating unforgettable wellness experiences for guests at One&Only Nyungwe House and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest, encompassing spa treatments, wellbeing activities and culinary menus, working together in tandem to offer a holistic wellness program for our guests.

Regarded as an eco-luxury destination, Rwanda is widely known for its incredible natural experiences and native wildlife, as well as its rich cultural history, and through One&Only’s thoughtfully curated wellness programmes, the country is also gaining a reputation as an undiscovered destination for wellbeing. One&Only Nyungwe House is situated on the edge of one of the oldest rain forests, Nyungwe National Park, and One&Only Gorilla’s Nest is hidden away within a eucalyptus forest near the Volcanoes National Park; these exceptional natural locations offer guests an unparalleled escape to focus on their wellness

Born and raised in India, Nitesh is a visionary, results-driven and award-winning spa professional with 14 years progressive growth in the wellness industry. He has led many spa initiatives for luxury hotels, with experience in pre-opening projects and marketing, as well as hands-on experience of conducting various wellness programmes and teaching. He began his career studying yoga psychology with Bihar School of Yoga, which led to his first job in hospitality with Aman Resorts in the Philippines as the Yoga and Wellness Instructor. He later moved back home to India and enrolled with the Ananda Spa Institute to further develop his industry knowledge, before taking Spa Manager roles with luxury hotels including Jaypee Hotels, Westin, Aman and Marriott.

“The One&Only resorts in Rwanda both have wonderful opportunities for wellbeing, as both resorts are placed in the middle of nature, in peaceful and uplifting surroundings,” said Nitesh Ranjan. “The location of both resorts is incredibly inspiring with elements of the destination woven into the overall experience. I am passionate about enhancing a holistic wellness approach for guests from arrival until their departure and providing them with experiences they can continue when the return home.”

Prior to joining One&Only, Nitesh was with Heritance Aarah Resorts in the Maldives as Director of Spa and Wellness. He oversaw the development of the brand concept for Maldives Medical spa, creating wellness programs for each guest to suit their needs and managing the day-to-day operation of the spa, fitness centre and guest relations. Nitesh is passionate about wellness and creating experiences that are distinctive to the destination, in line with One&Only philosophy.
