The services are superb and i could recommend this resort to all people who enjoy quiet serene environs. The natural surrounding and warmth of the people who are serving is just great. It is a home away from home

Two of the three restaurants are closed (open for special events only) and the food at the one open restaurant is mediocre at best. Breakfast buffet is one of the worst...

Recently stayed in the hotel for a wedding. Truly and unexpectedly the most amazing time I had. Friendly staff and mouth watering food was just one thing. The wonderful view of the lake and the lake side. Definitely has to be on my list when I travel back to Uganda.
