The Boma Entebbe
Entebbe’s prime boutique hotel is a charming home from home set in verdant tropical gardens, just a few minutes’ drive from Entebbe International Airport.
Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, this expansive 1940s colonial home in Entebbe is now the setting for this charming boutique hotel. Just 15 guest suites are tucked among the trees in the lush tropical gardens, each with a private verandah where you can relax with a book or watch the myriad birds that thrive here. Decor reflects an eclectic African European style featuring artworks and hand-carved furniture made locally to support the nearby communities. Modern creature comforts ensure this is a perfect stopover where you can relax before or after long flights. The Boma has a superb library you’re welcome to browse through (plus a book exchange), or borrow one of the many board games for some family fun. The sparkling swimming pool where you can relax on a lounger is hard to resist. Try your hand at the pool table or with a game of pétanque (boules) or croquet in the garden; younger kids enjoy the small playground. After a refreshing gin and tonic or beer at the bar, enjoy a delicious meal on the covered verandah of the excellent restaurant – or ask for a menu in a poolside cabana. Superb, genuinely warm and welcoming service from the entire staff adds the perfect finishing touch to any stay at The Boma.
If you have extra time in Entebbe, ask the staff to organise a day trip to one of the many local highlights – such as a round of golf at the Entebbe Golf Club, fishing on Lake Victoria or a trip to the nearby Botanical Gardens and Wildlife Centre.
