What's not to appreciate? The courtyard with its shaped hedges? The breakfast buffet with multiple options, from cool fruits to warm, hearty meats, to omelets made your way? The Fusion restaurant with an extensive menu just beyond the lobby? The desk staff that always remembers your name and room number? The on-site gym with its offering of fitness classes? The...

We ordered the fusion food from the menu. Chinese/ Indian. Portions were massive and food was tasty. Masala garlicky chips are highly recommended if you fancy something spicy. Would definitely rate this place as a good Kampala restaurant.
