The Boma

Entebbe’s Premier Boutique Hotel

The Boma Hotel is Entebbe’s original and most exclusive hotel, set in tropical gardens in a leafy suburb, a few minutes drive from Entebbe International Airport. Our rooms combine the modern comforts one expects today with the charm and character of the original 1940’s home. The Boma Hotel in Entebbe Uganda is an ideal stopover for all airline passengers, and we will arrange all your airport transfers. Our staff and management team ensure guests receive a personable service and enjoy hospitality standards which are in keeping with the tradition of this charming lakeshore town.

This is what the guidebooks say about us: “Entebbe’s answer to the upmarket B&B, this little luxurious Guesthouse in Entebbe has grown, but hasn’t lost its intimate atmosphere thanks to lovely décor and a flower filled yard. The food gets rave reviews.” Lonely Planet East Africa Guide Book.

“This new and welcoming guesthouse is the only establishment to rival the larger Lake Vic Hotel in Entebbe ‘s upmarket category. Popular with inbound / outbound tourists and expatriates alike, it’s a welcoming setup in a tastefully restored colonial homestead in a leafy suburb. The comfortable self contained rooms are fitted with an attractive combination of English-colonial furnishings and African fabrics.”
