Banda Island, the hidden gem of the Ssese Islands archipelago, is a beautiful place with the most amazing sunsets. Peace and tranquility are at the top of the list, with amazing staff and management making sure nothing detracts. For the adventurous at heart, there is water skiing, wake boarding and a small Laser yacht. We also offer fishing, boat trips, nature walks and have a beach volleyball net waiting for you. In the evening we light a bonfire on the beach so you can watch the lights of the fisherman on the lake. Above all, you can be assured that the people you meet there are friendly and like minded travelers, there to simply enjoy a piece of paradise. And .... Our food is great!

Valentines on Banda again this year was loaded up with a Great bunch of guests! All of you did tons of water activites. 😜 Thank you for the compliments about boat ride to and from Banda. Im sure you could find lots of places on the island to relax under trees with a wide variety of 🦜 bird 🦒 life 🐦. We are over the moon about your kind word about the meals. Actually, most of what is prepared in the kitchen was created by the founder of Banda, known as 🀴 King Dom 🀴 Hope to see you back on the beach on Banda soon 😎

We really liked our two nights on Banda Island. It already started with the boat trip that is an experience! The Island is very calm & relaxing - just perfect for a couple. I loved watching the stunning sunset from the top of the castle and the bonfire at the beach. Doreen, the host, is lovely and she runs a little spa. After the very delicious lunch we enjoyed a relaxing massage. That was our first but not last time on Banda!

Greetings from Doreen and the staff who loved hosting your visit to Banda. 🀩 That's great news that you loved the boat ride. Every time I jump in the boat, i take a book and dose off. 😜 You went to the top of the castle. Amazing huh! Great place to start charging the drinks in the evenings. 🍺πŸ₯‚ 😊😊😊 We are totally blushing when reading that that was not your last trip to Banda! 🌈

We really enjoyed our stay at Banda Island, but the place is in serious need of renovations. Also, staff need to spray the huts to get rid of ants before people try to sleep in them. Guests should make sure to plan the trip over there well to make sure they get a safe boat.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay on Banda. 😊 Yes, we need to do a total repaint of the resort which was planned for in June last year. In March, when this COVID pandemic started, we didn't have even 1 guest on the island so no funds for upkeep. 😩 2 weeks ago, we bought all the paint and are waiting for a dry season. We don't spray the rooms but instead sprinkle the surrondings with white powder to keep the ants away but many times, they find their way into a cabin. On the island it is impossible to eradicate all the ants and also we would never want to alter the way of nature. 🐜 Yes, we make sure that the boat trip to Banda is always on a safe boat which takes two and a half hours either way. Hope you plan another trip soon to the island. 😜
