This is a unique experience - lots of art, flowers, gardens, birds, monkeys and water in a very rural setting, just off the Entebbe - Kampala road. Janet, the owner with her husband Andreas, runs a tight ship, and service is very good. Thanks!

Incredible Place
My 4 sons and I looked for a place to stay for our weekend experience in Entebbe to visit the Ngambe Island sanctuary. Malakai was more than a place to stay it was itself an experience that my sons and I will never forget, from the family cottage, the environment, the pool, the restaurant and the staff. Beautiful very original place lovingly cared for and serviced by family owners. We’ve already picked our next cottage for our next stay in Entebbe

Great lodging in a natural, beautiful setting
Our group of 5 arrived around 1 a.m. due to dealing with lost luggage claims at the airport. Although our arrival was 3 hours later than expected, the staff was gracious and accommodating with smiling faces. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious - and without cost. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Fascinating hotel in Entebbe
When I fly out of Entebbe, I make a point of sleeping in Entebbe the night before, in order to avoid the horrible traffic jams on Entebbe Road. My usual hotel was not available. I found Malakai Eco lodge, which had good reviews and looked intriguing. As we followed the signs for the Lodge off of Entebbe Road, my friends and I grew increasingly alarmed. The "road" was a narrow dirt trail that wound through small African houses. When we finally arrived, however, we found a large compound and a tropical wonderland. We were thoroughly enchanted and wished we had arrived earlier in the day so we could enjoy it more (our flight was early in the morning.) After supper, we all retired early and discovered the place's drawback - an unbelievably loud cacophony of frogs. I was in a treehouse, and got a double dose - the pond frogs and the tree frogs. I was in the tree with them. I had to wear my sound-attenuating headphones to get to sleep.They stop around midnight, fortunately.

Magical retreat nestled in a quiet village
Malakai is truly an oasis in the bustling metropolis of Kampala/Entebbe. Stay here if you're looking for a peaceful, natural environment with some really unique and artistic architecture. Every room has a different theme -- I would highly recommend the "Pebble Room," it was our favorite. Although there is no air-conditioning, it's significantly cooler than surrounding areas due to it's location near water. The monkeys come out every evening to swing through the trees and eat bananas while you sip on a cold beer or have a bite to eat. You can swim in the pool, use the fitness center, play on the slackline or take a tour of a local island with the owner. Or you can just settle into one of the many cosy perches on the property and read a good book. The whole place has sort of an eco-African-Alice-in-Wonderland vibe to it. I would give this place two thumbs up for both hospitality and value.
