I have stayed at the Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort just about every time I am on business meetings to Kampala. This hotel and especially its staff far exceeded our expectations. I felt really comfortable and safe knowing that staff would help me for everything we might need. The hotel has a perfect and safe location. The staff is extremely helpful and... More

Where to start! The whole hotel was spotless cleaned and polished everyday from the rooms to the gardens to the pool! The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble! Waking up and looking at beautiful Lake Victoria every morning just made our trip so peaceful. Boating was such an outstanding ride in d fresh air of Uganda! The... More

I stayed at this resort jan.7-21,2015. The resort is beautiful, rooms were very nice, food was excellent along with all of the lakeside and pool area food stops. It is probably the most family, child oriented resort I have seen with lots for the kids to do. The staff is just amazing and so friendly. They have two swimming pools,... More

If you ever come to Uganda, this is the place to be. Very friendly and humble service. Deliciously mouth watering food makes you keep asking for more. The magnificent lake side view at sun rise, the giant Olympic sized swimming pool on a hot sunny day and not to forget, a fun horse ride in the cool breeze of the... More

Munyonyo Resort was originally built for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Conference. Accordingly it is sumptuous and expansive. Speke resorts have maintained the grandeur and added comforts and conveniences ever since, It is not cheap. The food is good with a wide selection of vebegtarian and meat dishes. The staff accommodate individual wishes. The rooms are clean and very secure.... More

A leisurely and very tasty lunch on the long veranda of the Commonwealth Resort's restaurant, in tastefully established and immaculately manicured gardens. The buffet didn't appeal but the Indian a la carte was excellent. Nice Sunday afternoon atmosphere. It would have had the extra star if the coffee was sorted. This is coffee country so no reason not to source... More

My family booked the resort as we were going for an introduction ceremony in Kampala. Bookings and correspondences were done through Mr Sumant who was a great pleasure to work with. On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly staff right from the front gate, through to reception, in the various restaurants and everywhere else in the resort. Staff were... More

The Speke or Munyonyo Resort is an extraordinary oasis of serenity on the shores of one of Lake Victoria. The food is some of the best anywhere let alone in Uganda. The rooms are clean and pleasant. The service is attentive. There is an Olympic size pool. And the main restaurant area is a wonderful place to observe birds, fish... More
