I have been coming to the Boma for the last 5 years. Every time I stay here, I feel so good and the ambience gets better every time while staying the same. A great feeling I can’t explain. Everything is on point. I attended my friend’s wedding and stayed here. Stumbled in at 5AM and the staff were waiting for me to get back and opened the gate for me with a flashlight to escort me to my room. I love everyone at the Boma because they have now turned into family. I love the garden balconies to the rooms and their breakfast spread.

We had amazing last two days at Boma before leaving Uganda. We were the only guests and Patrick the manager made the impossible possible after the lock-down due to COVID19. I hope the Boma owners know what they have in Patrick and the team. Food was very good, rooms so fabulous. I have been coming to Boma for the past 10 years and only now I learned why there is no whole Tilapia served 😊 Thank you.

We stayed at the Boma for about a day and a half at the conclusion of our trip, while we were awaiting flight out of Entebbe. The place is lovely and is reminiscent of 1940s Miami! We were very comfortable and well-treated. The room was nice, the bathroom was adequate, and the dining options very good. The Boma is just a few minutes from the airport.

Stayed two nights here while in Entebbe, Uganda! This is such a beautiful bed and breakfast that we wished we were able to stay longer! The meals were delicious and the staff are all so friendly! Our room was very spacious and cozy. I loved that it had a/c available! This is very close to the Entebbe airport as well.

A great place to spend a night or two before or after a Ugandan tour. Well located for a quick trip to the airport. Lovely well tended gardens with fabulous pool and great food. Try the Zanzibar inspired fish curry – its amazing! We also enjoyed a wonderful jug of sangria as we sat and shared stories in the late afternoon sun by the pool. Comfortable, quiet, clean rooms with large shower. Friendly staff.
