Great house on a scenic island at a reasonable price. Friendly staff always a bonus and service was 5*. Easy to get to, taking us around 2 hrs door to door from Kampala. Local wildlife was interesting as was the short trip to chimp island.

Similarly impressed with my stay at One Minute South - a tranquil and picturesque location and an ideal place to relax with friends. A beautiful property with a fascinating and rich interior and plenty of space for entertaining oneself indoors as an alternative to remaining by the infinity pool and on the sun-drenched terrace or on the beach. Friendly and... More

I can't recommend 'One Minute South' highly enough. I stayed there with a group of friends last month and we had a wonderful time. The house itself is set on a secluded part of Bulago Island with it's own beach and jetty. It's here that you disembark from your Lake Victoria approach – perhaps the most romantic way to arrive...

I stayed at this house for one night with friends and was reluctant to leave when the boat arrived to take us back to the mainland. The house and grounds are stunning and the service and food were brilliant. There are staff at the house to prepare meals and clear up but they disappear when they're not serving so you... More

One Minute South is in a fabulous location, close enough to Kampala that you can have a great weekend away but far enough that you feel like you have gone on holiday somewhere totally different. The pool is gorgeous, as is the house and it's furnishings. The service provided to us was top notch, with attention paid to the little... More

Very pleasantly surprised how lovely the house was and what a view. We went as self catering, so good food and got delicious fresh fish on the island. The main house is very comfortable with four bedrooms, guest house very different standard. A good kept secret, shame to let this get out.

The stunning house overlooks a gorgeous bay where moon rises and settings are in full glorious view. I have stayed her several times and am always taken aback by the beauty of the island. I cannot recommend One Minute South enough!

The place was nice,no doubt,the decor was beautiful. The food was nice but for the prices they charge ,it is still lacking.For breakfast we barely had a piece of bacon and there was very little variety. Imagine,they didn't even have juice,only tea was an option,no cereal just plain breakfast..They should revise their prices or the food. On top of that,... More

OneMinuteSouthAli, Owner at One Minute South, responded to this review

As a new holiday getaway, One Minute South tries to accommodate all requests. Being on an island all supplies must be ordered from the mainland. Unfortunately, this birthday party group went from 14 to 22 people to be accommodated and catered for. The 14 guests had ordered cooked breakfast which was then shared with extra 8 guests. Thus the shortage!... More
