Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Entebbe is exactly what was needed, a small, intimate luxury boutique hotel which caters to the discerning traveler.
The attention to detail is evident the moment you walk onto the property with manicured gardens, thoughtful décor and a reception area which leads onto a terrace with views of Lake Victoria in the distance. The rooms continue the theme with large custom made four poster beds, modern bathrooms and a balcony or terrace which is perfect for sundowners with your partner.
Using locally sourced ingredients and imported luxuries, the restaurant is the heart of the hotel. Fine dining, warm and attentive service and a wine list of handpicked South African wines make up a truly exceptional dining experience. The highlight of my meal was the cauliflower veloute with truffle and parmesan wafers, a refined take on cauliflower with cheese sauce like your mom used to make for the Sunday roast, only better!
I did not get a chance to have a massage or use the sauna but spent time relaxing by the pool instead,
I didn’t realize how much I needed to relax after my long flight. The spa offers a range of treatments which I will definitely try the next time I am passing through.
It seems first impressions do last and my impression upon walking into No.5 Boutique Hotel was they do things a little differently. So if you are looking for a little luxury and style on your travels through Entebbe, this may be the place you have been looking for
