Reviewed 19 February 2018

This Lodge has the advantage of being close to the highest peaks of the Rwenzori Mountains. With a little luck (haze in dry season, sometimes clouds in rainy), you can enjoy sitting in the front porch of your room looking out over the swimming pool to the peaks (though the highest are further behind). Recommended for breakfast! The rooms are very comfortable and imaginatively designed. From your rear porch you sit right above the crater lake - maybe 100 metres belwo. Great for bird-watchers. A beautiful aerial dance of brown kites over the water this morning. The staff were all very helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms above pool - porches front and back - mountains and crater lake. Backpackers 10 dorm beds, v large room,en suite, v good value.

Dear EPS2308,

We are deeply saddened to know you got a bad experience while staying at our facility, what happened was an unacceptable standard of service that we usually offer to our guests.

I'm going to investigate to ascertain exactly what happened that day and corrective measures will be put in place, to ensure something like that to never happen again.

I'm offering you a complimentary Half board stay at our lodge for one night.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused

Normally every first week of October for the last 15 years todate, I and my wife have been choosing a quite good lodge mainly in a wild environment targeting fresh breath and sounds of nature for mind relaxation and resting. This year we choose Lodge Bellavasita as our destination. We were so much excited and amazed by the hospitality of the highest order by the lodge staff from the day 1 up to 5th day of our stay. We really enjoyed food there as it was pure organic. We enjoying spot fishing where we went with lodge staff physically did fishing and the very fish had it for our dinner, the pizza and the italian menu made this lodge very unique compared to other lodges we had visited before. We enjoyed local actvities around the lodge including sunrise and sun set tours,top of lake view,hiking all concluded by enjoying the swiming pool at the lodge. I liked the King delux room as it was spacious with big windows where you see all lake through the window and surrounding hills. I higly recomend who ever wantd to relax to go thrte however I would recomend that the lodge could put a shuttle st thr lodge to pick budget travellers from rwimi or kasese or fortportal as there is no direct public transport up to the lodge

Stayed here on our stopover between Kibale and Queen Elizabeth NPs. The staff was super friendly and accommodating, especially Ivan who took us out on the lake in the evening and invited us on a walk to see the surrounding farms and villages in the morning. The hilltop location overlooking the crater lake provided outstanding views and a wonderful cooling breeze. We had two comfortable, clean bedrooms on separate floors, a nice roomy bathroom, and decks on all floors out the front and back. Breakfast was included and was good and filling, and dinner was very reasonably priced and delicious (I had an artichoke pizza and big salad, which could be enough food for two people).

This place is truly heavenly. The view from our room of the lake is so serene. The Lodge is well situated and comfortable. There is a swimming pool and restaurant for guests. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. I suggest you order an hour before you want to eat as food is cooked fresh and takes a while to prepare.
