We booked a rafting trip for the next day (absolutely amazing experience). The pick up and drop off is included with the price. (Around 140$ per person for a whole day) The resort...

Though my stay here was short, I did enjoy the ambience! Quite and beautiful facility ideal for conferences! Exquisite Lake view and I believe there's the possibility for boat rides on the lake for those who can afford it! Free Wi-Fi, clean washrooms! I'd recommend to anyone visiting Kampala!

The hotel is set in beautiful grounds and is well kept. The rooms are very comfortable and large. The facilities are excellent. However the Indian managers at reception are unsmiling, not friendly and unwelcoming.
