“Incredible experience on Lake Bunyonyi”

This place blew our minds starting from the beautiful boat ride to get to the island. The food was incredible (highly recommend ordering the local crayfish!) and the views were so calming. The staff was accommodating with all of our requests and brought over a fire while we were sitting outside at night. We had a great experience

“One of my favourite places”

The boat ride to this place is beautiful. On arrival, the staff were very helpful in carrying all our luggage (of 10 people). The pool docks are beautiful and we really enjoyed our beers down here at sunset. It's so peaceful with only the sounds of birds surrounding the area. The wifi is limited but that wasn't a problem for us and it was nice to switch off. The crayfish curry was incredible and I highly recommend this or other local produce over ordering anything Western. The staff were so friendly and booked us for a tour around the islands and small hike for roughly $20. The views were incredible and our guide was very informative. Couldn't recommend this place enough - so peaceful and enjoyable

“Incredible hospitality and beautiful views”

My stay at Paradise Eco Hub was far better than I could have imagined, even though it rained all day and was cold (rainy season), everything about this place was great! Silas and the rest of the staff are incredibly kind and accommodating (even when I made a big mistake with the check-in process), and they truly care about their guests experience and their community. I stayed in the single room which was basic as expected (basically just a bed in a room with shared toilet/shower outside), but Silas showed me the open cave rooms (opened to the lake view) and the cottages which look really nice - some even have their own private dock so you can jump right into the lake in the morning! The upstairs seating area has 360 views of the lake and hillsides, with comfortable chairs perfect for lounging and reading a book with an incredible view. Food was good, breakfast was really big and delicious (two eggs, pancake, toast, coffee, fruit). I would 100% recommend coming back here for the views, the hospitality, and the overall experience
