Hotel No. 5

Entebbe, Uganda

A boutique stay in Entebbe

Hotel No. 5 is a luxury, boutique style hotel ‐ the first of its kind in Entebbe. Located just ten minutes from the airport, it’s a great option for anyone looking for a relaxing, fuss‐free stopover, or for those with a little more time to stay and explore the local area.

Rooms range in size and style but all benefit from air conditioning, outside seating areas and views over the immaculately maintained gardens and swimming pool. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with some enjoying direct garden access whilst luxury apartments offer split level living, a sitting room and a small kitchenette.

Throughout the décor is stylish and contemporary with club style furniture, inviting leather armchairs and brightly coloured artwork set against fresh white walls. The restaurant is truly one of the best in Entebbe with carefully planned menus paired with an international wine list.

Entebbe is set on the shore of Lake Victoria and it is easy to explore on foot, by boda bodas (local motorbikes) or by car. Browse local markets brimming with fabrics and crafts, wander the botanical gardens, cruise on Lake Victoria or take a day trip to the Ngamba Island Chimp Sanctuary or Mabamba Swamp ‐ a must for birdwatchers.

You may also like to visit the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre where you have the opportunity to go behind the scenes, meet the keepers and enjoy a ‘keeper for the day’ experience.

Hotel No. 5 is a welcome addition to Entebbe’s choice of accommodation and provides a stylish Entebbe base as well as an excellent pre or post – safari stopover.

The trip exceeded my expectations and was the best family holiday I have ever had. Our children simply loved it and now I know more about African wildlife than they do about our own farm animals.
