Papaya Lake Lodge
Papaya Lake Lodge is situated in one of the country’s most scenic regions, sitting high above both the Lyantonde and Kifuruka. It is split between two main areas. As you walk into the property you are greeted with a stunning view of the lakes and the Rwenzori Mountains to the west. The main area is very bright with a bar area with a very impressive selection of gins and a veranda where there are comfortable seats and sun loungers. Papaya Lake Lodge offers nine spacious and bright cottages, all situated on the extinct volcano crater’s slope and have breathtaking views of the Lyantonde Lake. Each of the cottages offers complete privacy, hidden from view by a green wall of sympathetic treetops. Eight of the cottages feature two beds (one king-size and one single), local stone-decorated bathrooms with shower units, and verandas equipped with deckchairs. The ninth cottage is a two-floor villa boasting three bedrooms, a fireplace-lit living room, a spacious bathroom, and a large terrace. The facility includes a swimming pool area that has panoramic views and hammocks. The swimming pool exceeds all expectations and in their opinion is the best in Uganda.
