I stayed 4 nights with 2 other friends in one of the deluxe geodomes. It was the most relaxing 4 days with minimal access to the outside world (ie minimal Internet, etc). Byoona Amagara is run as a perfectly sustainable establishment, with solar power energy and no unnecessary waste.
The restaurant served the best food we had in uganda (try the prawns stuffed in avocado, the chapatti 'burrito' an generous fruit bowl).
I highly recommend staying here. Make it the end of your trip to uganda for the perfect relaxing finale to your trip.

- Byoona Amagara is a one-of-a-kind traveler's paradise located on an island peninsula at the heart of the lake. We cater to independent travelers and backpackers looking to get well off the beaten track. We have a gorgeous location overlooking a protected island cove, perfect for swimming, canoeing, hiking or just about anything else you can think of. We also have creative and comfortable lodgings, famously fresh and delicious food, sweeping views of the lake's islands and hills, and a variety of fun and interesting tours and activities... not to mention some of the most affordable prices in all of East Africa! We also have Internet service available, as well as an amazing library and cinema with hundreds of great books and films. What Byoona Amagara does NOT have is noise, dust, overland trucks, mosquitoes (very few anyway!), and prices that won't insult your intelligence (or empty your wallet).
