The room was exquisite, the food well presented and the overall experience unmatched. The conference facilities are well maintained and arranged. I would always want to come back. You get value for your money.

Nice ambience, well done lawns, fresh food and juice with mouthwatering bites of roast meat and grilled chicken. Clean and spacious rooms and well thought out interior for conferencing. I was impressed by the cinema theater...an experience I will not forget in a long time.

Was at Sawela Lodge between 6th and 11th March 2017, attending a workshop. Food was excellent, rooms are great, staff are the best I've seen/encountered in a long time. They were helpful, polite. Absolutely loved the boat-ride and our guide Joakim knew everything from history of the lake, about river nile, to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden....

The hotel grounds are very pleasant with lots of green space, and the pool is nice. The naturalist who leads walks to the lake is very entertaining, and you can see a lot of birds and sometimes a giraffe. Lots of building work when we were there, so probably didn't see the place as its best. Rooms not 100% clean...
