My wife and I stayed here last weekend. We are international teachers who live here in Kampala and were just looking to get away for the weekend. I have always loved the resort but it was quite obvious to me that they have taken seriously the negative feedback that some people have left here on Trip Advisor. We have stayed... More

Stayed here for a few days and almost cried when we had to leave. Beautiful grounds - tons of palm trees, a little ka-waterfall, and tranquil outdoor dining area. The buffet was the best I've had in Uganda - a delightful mix of local, Indian, and English dishes, and a perpetual assortment of three-bite-cakes at the desert bar. Nom. The... More

I attended a conference over three days. The resort is a beautiful place with a high standard of service, clean rooms and good food. I would recommend anyone that visits Kampala to stay here. I have read some negative comments but personally didn't experience any negatives, quite the opposite in fact.

We spent almost 2 weeks at this resort which lies on the shores of the infamous Lake Victoria. The Resort offers all modern facilities you would expect from a top resort and it does.The Olympic sized swimming pool is simply breath taking. The view of the Lake from our bedroom was simply fantastic,you could wake up to the marina which... More

Spent 10 days here, and couldn't fault it. Spacious, clean, excellent service from everyone from maids to general manager. Special mention to Akhilesh and Greg who made sure every need was met where possible, including retrieving a lost mobile, keeping me updated with cricket scores and providing special catering for my young toddler. Highly recommended...try the masala chips! JP and... More

Don't be fooled by the hotel lobby or entrance. This was a terribly run hotel with very poor customer service. The positives: very large pool, gym with lots of older machines; beautiful lobby; good indian food The negatives (of which below is but a brief summary): - the hotel has an inflexible policy where you pay for all your hotel...

Beautiful setting. The gardens are well maintained yet the rooms are not up to the standard and contrary to what the website says: no hair dryer, no internet only on the lobby. Rooms facing the lakes are noisy at night with the loud music. Was disappointed with the food. The buffet for the lunch and dinner is so limited. Not... More

I stayed at the hotel for 1 week. The venue is beautiful and the rooms are very spacious. The issues I had with the hotel were diverse however: _There is some discrimination in the staffing since all low positions are occupied by black Africans and all the higher management are filled by Indians. There is some questionable recruiting going on... More
