Let’s see. For every Ugandan, the Christmas holiday is usually spent out of town in the village or country home, partying away the entire December, cursing the year for those who didn’t meet their resolutions, thanking God for a fruitful year and many of those. Hasn’t that become too routine? How about you tried something different this year.
The plush and magnificent Speke Resort in Munyonyo has you covered on this. The lakeside resort has a rich festive holiday offering for you; reduced prices on accommodation and a rich variety of food options since a Christmas holiday without good food is not really a memorable one.
“Enjoy a festive celebration with family, friends or work colleagues at Speke Resort Munyonyo and Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort,” reads an e-flyer on the resort’s Twitter account. Shallow as it might seem, and for a person who has been to and enjoyed the resort, it was inviting; I had to check out what’s on offer.
With attractive accommodation prices starting from $139, around-the-world dining offers including continental and Asian cuisines, a variety of recreational attractions including water sporting, horse riding and a fully functional fitness space, great offers on private parties including weddings and end-of-year corporate affairs, and a relaxing lakeside environment complimented by friendly and topnotch service, you wouldn’t want to miss out.
“…This is an invitation to make your December one of worthwhile festivities; at Speke Resort Munyonyo. #VisitMunyonyo.”
Speke Resort’s special festival accommodation rates will run from December 14th – 23rd 2018 then run again from December 26th 2018 – January 6th 2019 starting at $176. On Christmas day and the day after, guests will experience what has been termed as the ‘Executive Christmas Accommodation’ starting at $139. These rates are on full-board basis; breakfast, lunch, dinner, access to the health and fitness facility (swimming, gym steam and sauna), a 30-minutes boat ride and 10-minutes pony ride for children are all inclusive of the accommodation package you chose from the 8 room types.
On Christmas day, the Olympic size swimming pool area will be the real deal. There will be an Around the World Grand Christmas Buffet starting at midday and run till the end of day.
This festive holiday package is tailored for guests who have been to the resort before and first timers. The offer is inviting of everyone looking for not just the small bits about fun this holiday but the whole nine-yards experience.
I spoke to a front desk staffer and observed that it is best if your booking, especially for parties and accommodation, is made now and in advance. “We’re currently having an increase in our party bookings and accommodation traffic. Many more guests are expected as we get close to the last two weeks of December,” intimated the gentleman on condition of anonymity.
Maybe you want to stick to your festive season routine. Maybe you are still debating whether to take a vacation in ‘outside countries’. Maybe you don’t have any invitations this December. This is an invitation to make your December one of worthwhile festivities; at Speke Resort Munyonyo. #VisitMunyonyo
