Welcome to Lagoon Resort, not only the closest offshore resort to Kampala, but without question, the most beautiful and relaxing. Set amongst 10 acres of unspoilt natural beauty, the resort is only 25 minutes, with our 28ft handmade boat, from our official mainland landing point in Munyonyo.
The resort is in the middle area of a large bay, giving visitors a wonderful view of Lake Victoria, as well as making the resort home to a great many birds, and some cheeky monkeys too.
Your visit to Lagoon Resort will make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and you’ll return home refreshed and relaxed.
Set amongst the natural forest, our six buildings that make up the African Village – Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard, Rhino and Silverback – offer guests some of the best accommodation in Uganda.
Built on raised wooden platforms, these grass thatched ensuite buildings provide ideal accommodation for two with our handmade queen size bed. We can also offer an extra single bed for children upon request.
The shower is supplied with hot water from our natural well. Enjoy a drink on the covered balcony as you sit gazing at the forest spotting birds and monkeys, or take a relaxing dip in the pool.
We provide a mosquito net, linen bedding, towels and torches.
Guests staying at the African Village can enjoy a free boat service to bring them to the resort and back to the mainland at the end of their stay.
Lagoon Resort is very proud of its restaurant. The building has been uniquely designed and offers wonderfully diverse views of the landscaped botanical gardens and Lake Victoria.
All the furniture has been designed and handmade by accomplished Ugandan artists and craftsmen, making it absolutely unique to the resort.
The restaurant has an extensive menu, offering Inter-Continental cuisine prepared by our European trained Master Chef, and a great selection of fine wines from around the world.
If you just fancy a drink, the Gecko Bar has a wide range of beers and spirits, all served by the friendliest barman in Uganda.
The bar is extremely unique, designed by Mark Pirani, combining a wonderful blend of wood and stone. Alternatively, you can enjoy a meal or drink in our beautiful gardens with stunning views of Lake Victoria. We also have an open fire in the gardens, ideal for warming your bones from the cool breeze we get from the lake while enjoying your favourite drink.
Our staff are well trained and we are very proud of the quality service they provide to all our guests.
