I have visited the Cassia Lodge in March. Again, the service was impeccable and the hospitality was great. I enjoy staying in their spacious rooms, they are very tidy. Recently, they have refurbished the terras. Now the sundowners over Lake Victoria are even more spectacular. I keep coming back to this amazing place, it is an oasis of tranquility after... More

This spot overlooking the lake Victoria is one of the best places to spend an evening in kampala hands down. Wow, it does quite pack a punch with breath taking views of the lake in one direction and that of the city in the other. I can't think of a way in which your day could go here because there... More

A very quiet place not that far from Kampala. Nice rooms, very good food and the staff is very friendly. You feel at home in a place with a fantastic view on Lake Victoria. This is the place to be when you're around Kampala !!!

After a hectic day in Kampala town (work and the crazy traffic), this nice lodge was a great place to wind down at. Its located on a hill hence one is able to see Kampala town from the hotel. The sunrise was breathtaking during breakfast. The meals were good. Our waiter was a bit laid back unlike the ones i... More

We visited Cassia Lodge in the advise of a friend, she raved about the view. The view is lovely, on a hilltop overlooking Lake Victoria. Unfortunately, the view is the only thing that impressed us. The rooms have no air conditioning and our ceiling fan wasn't working, making it stifling hot. The rooms have patio doors that open to the... More

samsungKampala, Owner at Cassia Lodge, responded to this review

it doesn't happen often: a negative review of Cassia. Therefore, it needs special attention and appropriate action. By coincidence I was at the reception when the clients checked in. They were told that the rooms with A/C were occupied and that the wooden fan at the ceiling was only for decoration. The metallic fan should be used. Clients were also... More

Cassia Lodge… heaven on earth! Johan Van Hecke is not just an hotelier, he is the god of Hospitality. Great hotel, very excellent cuisine. The staff is amazing, friendly and helpful. If you go to Kampala than Cassia Lodge is the place to be.

Just spent six nights here with my wife on working trip. The pool, views, ambience, staff friendliness, owner and room were all really nice. Lovely dinner location overlooking Kampala and ideal for meetings. Wifi worked all the time as did hot water and shower. This visit was a special treat, thanks to my Ugandan host who had covered the bill.
