I have stayed here twice now, and I'll keep going back. What an awesome location, right on the lake, very wide lakefront; stunning vast landscaping. Many different kinds of birds, even some monkeys. So peaceful, restful. First-class excellent rooms. Wonderful helpful staff. Decent food, though wish there was more variety.

SO peaceful and relaxing, you'd think you left the city far far away. Yet you're only 10km off Entebbe road (we measured). Besides breathtaking views (sigh), it has that thing I always crave for when I go to the beach - of you can hear the water! Life seems to slow down in such a serene atmosphere - which is... More

A delightful setting with well maintained gardens overlooking Lake Victoria. Our bedroom was basically fine, but there was no seat for the toilet and the bedside lights did not work. There were cobwebs under the bed. We appreciated a hot shower for the first time after weeks up country. The evening meal was one course (inclusive) no fruit or desert.... More

We need a place away from the noisy Kampala city to chill. My first thought after a search was Garuga Resort hotel. But when I read someone wrote very selfish comment that its a place left to die, my expectation went down abit. I never gave up, despite going through the rough road, the resort is NOT a place left... More

We decided to spend a couple of nights here to relax after our pretty hectic tour. We were "allocated" a member of staff James to ensure that our stay went well and he did a very good job and was caring and helpful. The rooms are smart and comfortable and we slept well here. When we asked what we would... More

My visit to the resort was such a fulfilling experience. We were looking for a place that is private and peaceful to relax and garuga resort did just that for us. We are bird lovers and what other better way to be woken up in the early morning but by a horn bill knocking at our balcony. The food was... More

We stayed a night in a so called suit and were very disappointed, even though our expectations weren't high. Although the spot next to lake Victoria is ok the hotel was not worth the money or the trip from Kampala. We were the only guests and it seemed the owner had given up and let the place die. The rooms... More

Being my 4th time here I am not surprised at the calmness of the place. The warmth of the service gives more reason to come back. Enjoyed the lake view, fishing, sight of various bird species and a boat ride. Its worth the 9km journey

Garuga resort is about 1 hour from Kampala (depending on traffic conditions). Nestled along the shore of Lake Victoria at Entebbe. No effort has been spared to make the resort of very high standards - the furnishings and fittings are of exceptional quality and very authentic. Great service and rates. They can organise lake side barbeques in the evening -... More
