This luxurious 4-star resort hotel is ideally located on the shores of Lake Victoria and a convenient 1 kilometre from the Entebbe international airport. The lodge is part of the Marriott Chain so it meets all high standards that they offer, with plenty of facilities, clean rooms and professional service. It is a short drive from the airport so a good option for those who are coming off a late international flight.


The hotel is just 1km from Entebbe international airport so it is a good option for those who are coming off a long international flight. The hotel looks out to Lake Victoria which is a nice view and location to start your Uganda trip.


The hotel is a large chain hotel so it is quite standard in terms of the design, décor and facilities. That said, the main area does offer some local Ugandan artwork and pieces (such as spears and colourful cushin covers). The building is two-stories and the rooms are located on either side of the main area, first and second floors.


The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. They are well-appointed, with large beds, a private veranda and an en-suite. There is air conditioning in the rooms which is useful for the summer months, and they all have a partial view of Lake Victoria. Tea and coffee facilities are in the room.

Comfortable, good facilities

– Chain hotel so less personality
