This is a luxury resort with peace and tranquility accompanied by high quality rooms and service. We stayed for five days and enjoyed every moment. The food was of a higher quality than some other reputable hotels, a buffet service along with the a la carte menu offering a choice to guests. The room was of a high standard and... More

Feels as if you have entered a Tuscan villa when you arrive. Great views, nice terraces, large rooms with balconies. Enjoyed the walk down to the new golf club and around their tracks. Very nice swimming pool at the hotel with a bar. No sign of mosquitos when we were there.

I had stayed at the resort three years prior having been connected with the golf course construction. This time I was with my wife prior to embarking on a 6-day Ugandan Safari. It certainly is a great way to shake off any jet lag and relax in a nice environment. The access road off the main Entebbe-Kampala, whilst rather bumpy... More

Beautiful grounds, comfortable rooms and employees very pleasant and helpful. Mariam at the spa is terrific! The prices are very reasonable. The food is good - haven't had a bad meal the entire time. Really can't find any negatives other than, if you aren't in the best of health, the walk to your quarters may be a bit much and... More

I stayed one night at the hotel due to is proximity to the airport. The hotel is nice and the food is good. Mosquitos all around as expected being next to the lake. The ligths in the room kept blinking and many times the electricity went off. I called to get that checked, they said they were coming to check... More

Despite the trip from Kampala downtown being only 15km or so, the Serena is magically peaceful and you feel like you're far from the city. The views of Lake Victoria is superb and brunch has an excellent range of choices. I particularly liked the salad bar. I've been there several times--for a wedding event, and Sundays relaxing. The staff are... More

I did not want to have to travel back into Kampala after doing a side trip to Bwinde and decided to stay at Lake Victoria for one night. It is very much a resort type hotel with huge sprawling gardens but was no way near as lush as Serena Kampala. Even though I had looked at maps, I had expected... More

My favorite hotel in Uganda. This hotel is really hard to find down a long bumpy road, but once you are here it is time to relax! I love coming here for 1 day/2 nights after a week in the field. There is a great view of Lake Victoria from most rooms. You feel like you are the only one... More
