We held a workshop with 20 people at Humura Resorts. The participants enjoyed it: The rooms are very comfortably designed and very clean, the outdoor area is very good for exchange or relaxation. And the staff is very cooperative. One participant of the workshop put it in a nutshell: "They treated us like royalty". Highly recommended location!

I had the pleasure of staying at Humura for 2.5 weeks and had a really relaxing and rejuvenating time. The hotel is lovely and, despite it's location next to a busy road, the huge trees and way it is set below the traffic made it feel like I was in a little nature preserve. I woke to birds singing and the staff was so accommodating to my requests for early breakfast (AMAZING every day) that I had while enjoying the sunrise and a cappuccino from the open air dining area. The staff were universally lovely and welcoming, never pushy or "hovering". Would love to stay here every time I'm in Kampala.

The Humura Resort is truly an oasis and escape from a very vibrant, bustle that is all around in Kampala.

The rooms are great...spacious. And a very comfortable bed.

All the staff are incredible and attentive, and really go out of their way to ensure a happy stay. Even despite Kenyan airways not delivering my lost bag for 3 days, the reception staff were just as concerned as me to have it delivered (phoning the airline, useless airports company and the delivery team).

I unreservedly recommend this as the choice hotel stay in Kampala, and would find it difficult to make anywhere else home-away-from-home when in Uganda!

Under management of Fernando this place really is our best advice when staying in Kampala. Very private and well designed facilities, nice pool and small gym (incl personal trainer Isaac), great food and a proper drinks selection.
Only minor things which could be improved like a clearer breakfast menu which indicates what the options are and what might cost extra. Also staff handle precautions quite well but could use a review/reminder of COVID-19 SOPs (standard operating procedures)

Having spent over 30 days at Humura, I had the chance to experience the hotel to the maximum extent. Not only the management and staff is highly professionaly but also caring. The rooms are very comfortable with great amenities, very clean and with an excellent decoration. The location also is excellent as it's 5 minutes away from the center and very well connected to the rest of the city. I would encourage anyone wanting to spend some time in Kamapala to go to Humura.

I have stayed at the Humura Resorts several times and there is so much to like about it despite the obvious shortcomings.
The staff are super helpful and very friendly, the rooms are comfortable and quiet, I have always managed to sleep well whenever I have stayed here, it is a real oasis in the chaos that is central Kampala. The pool is a wonderful treat and the best part about the hotel, is the fantastic decor and art in all of the rooms and all around the hotel, local artists and crafts bought from the nearby market, The location is fantastic, with several decent restaurants within waking distance including the previously mentioned craft market (30 minutes along quiet streets).
They really need to sort out the food and drink situation, the food in the restaurant is pretty basic and the bar is non-existent. Breakfast, is okay, although the last couple of times, it was a buffet, which would be fine but how much extra effort would it be to offer fresh cooked aggs?
The place does need a bit of TLC, but the charm of the place, with its colonial style, coupled with the stunning art pieces and welcoming staff, more than make up for any short comings.

A lovely quiet refuge in the middle of bustling Kampala. There is a palpable sense of calm the moment you arrive, and the manager and his staff are so welcoming.
The bed was comfortable, with proper mosquito nets, and there was a plentiful supply of free bottled water.
I didn’t have much time for breakfast, but what I had was excellent and fresh.
The location is convenient for the city and for Makerere University.

Humura is very amazing, it’s incomparable to any substitute of the same facility in the city. Green architecture, integrated customer service delivery, beautiful scenery in the middle of the city.

As you walk in, the mighty Ndajimana Gracious welcomes you with a beautiful warm smile and dedicated service. He then directs you to where your heading to. As you arrive at the restaurant, your served by the most dedicated Joseph; he guides you through the menu and delivers your request presented with a lot of professionalism. He examines your satisfaction at all levels and requests to help you through out. On your signing out you meet the most wonderful hotel principal Fernando Castillo. This is the most amazing experience over had in a long run.

This what we call excellence at customer service. Undisputed is the true definition of Humura.

Shukran Humura, Asante sana ....
