I have been to the Yellow Haven Lodge and a haven it is indeed. The swimming pool, the sauna, the barbecue, are the toppings to a quiet peaceful get away. It is also easy to get to. A taxi there is not too expensive so movement back and forth to the center of the city can be done without feeling the pinch. The meals are great and you can cook for yourself whatever you choose because there is a fully equipped kitchen. On a lazy day you can sit at the water front and watch the fish,listen to the frogs and have a drink. I did enjoy myself so mcuh Irecomend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Yellow Haven's beautiful gardens are an oasis of peace and quiet surrounded by papyrus groves on the shores of Lake Victoria. The modern Dutch-style Lodge is easily accessible from Kampala - but miraculously far from the hustle and bustle of the city. The gardens and water inlets are home to a great variety of birds, frogs, and fish - and boats are available anytime, just to paddle along the lovely shoreline, to fish, or to have a picnic or barbecue on one of the nearby islands. There's also great hiking and cycling - and at day's end you can take a dip in the infinity pool, have a sauna or massage, or simply relax with one of our fresh-fruit cocktails and a snack! Designer-architect Ronald Scheer and his long-suffering Irish wife, Joan, dreamed of building this enchanting complex during their many years in Africa - a place where friends from around the world could experience the magic of nature while living in luxury, and enjoying great service - and great food. At the Yellow Haven, you'll reside in an ultra-modern two storey townhouse, or in one of the two lovely single storey units. All apartments are fitted with the latest European amenities and offer total privacy and comfort. Thinking of hosting business friends? Our bar is a great place to meet and chat, and the magnificent conference room with its panoramic windows overlooking the lake will stun your guests, and is outfitted with everything you'll need to make your meeting a success. At all times - for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - our affordable wining and dining hideaway, The Snug, offers an unforgettable and very relaxed culinary experience: satisfying and inventive menus are changed daily to make the most of the great local fish, meats, and produce - and you can always ask the Chef to fix you whatever your heart desires at no extra cost. At the Yellow Haven, our motto is - The Personal Touch, Done to Perfection ... Come see why! ... more less
