A unique venue located in Kampala, Uganda, the Emin Pasha Hotel definitely sets itself apart from the other hotels in the bustling city. Trendy, with a British country house essence, it is appealing to all age groups and styles. The hotel has 20 refined, chic rooms and suites, each equipped with all the modern necessities today’s traveler requires, including Internet. Decorated with a contemporary designer’s freedom, while adhering to an age-old pride in service, the Emin Pasha aims to please guests in every way possible. Dining is exquisite, with mouthwatering flavors and tender meats. The café serves up lattes and cappuccinos to perfection. For a relaxing activity, try getting a massage or manicure.
Each room is different in terms of layout, size and decor, but all are decorated with the everchanging African landscape in mind. The owners have stayed in many hotel rooms around the world and have collected inspiration from all the continents for the rooms at Emin Pasha. Each room features hardwood furniture, Egyptian cotton sheets, summer-weight duvets, giant soft towels, long deep cast iron bathtubs (salvaged from derelict colonial buildings and re-enameled) or giant tropical 'monsoon' showers with African slate floors. Floors in the rooms are made of reconstituted stone and are cool underfoot (very welcome in Equatorial Africa), and each room has at least one oversized armchair or sofa...perfect for curling into with a good book or magazine.
The Fez Brasserie and Wine Bar is arguably one of the best places to eat and drink in Kampala. The ambience is inviting and the food is outstanding. In the bar - which is completely open to the elements on one side - deep sofas, armchairs and chunky coffee tables invite you to relax and put your feet up. Glowing fires in terracotta pots and waiters in white djellabas and crimson fezes are a gentle reminder that you are in tropical Africa. The wine list is extensive and exclusive, chosen by knowledgeable wine enthusiasts and brought in from South Africa on a regular basis and a wide range of cocktails and single malt whiskeys are a regular fixture with the evening guests. The restaurant, also open to the tropical evening, spills out onto the garden terrace so our guests can eat under the stars if they wish. The dynamic menu changes regularly, reflecting the seasonal freshness of the local produce.
