Posted by on July 25, 2017

Off The Beaten Path – Budget – Moderate Priced Lodge Bella Vista – Scenic Affordability

Bella Vista – Stunning Crater Lake – Rwenzori Mountains Setting

Lodge Bella Vista – a Stunning Crater Lake – the Rwenzori Mountains Setting is off of the beaten Tourist Path, not on the Itineraries of most Safari Tour Operators, it is one of those undiscovered Pearls in the Pearl of Africa.

The lodge is one of those perfect places to relax and chill out, enjoy the Italian Food in the restaurant,  the freshly baked pizzas from a wood-fired oven in the pizzeria, cold drinks along the swimming pool, scenic views all-around, a perfect add-on to your time in Kibale Forest, Queen Elizabeth Park all at a fraction of the price of Luxury Lodges with crater lake and Rwenzori Mountains Views. Bella Vista – one of the best values in Uganda that just might be what you are looking for in an off the beaten path location in the foothills of the Rwenzoris and surrounded by crater lakes.

The Lodge is halfway in between Fort Portal and Kasese – provides you an Italian – Uganda Fusion Food Adventure in the Pearl of Africa.

Lodge Bella VistaAffordable Bella Vista Lodge Stunning Crater Lake – Rwenzori Mountains Setting is set in one of the most scenic areas of Uganda all with an Italian Touch from the bright colors used to the paintings throughout the lodge and decor on the walls 0f the lodge both inside and out all against the backdrop of the majestic, snow-capped Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon and before you is a view of the beautiful  Nyamiteza Crater Lake below you.  A view that at Luxury Lodges such Ndali, Papaya Lake and Kyaninga Lodge would cost you much more for a night’s stay than here at the budget-moderately priced lodge with a view.

Soon to be offered is lakeside dinners on a platoon where you can take in your surroundings.

Customer Service:  An Excerpt from a TripAdvisor Review – The antiquity of good customer service, acceptable lodge-bella-vista-page-3social graces etc. at so-called budget facilities, are of little concern. Not so at Bella Vista. Not to cast aspersions on Lodge Bella Vista’s competition’s bonafides, good intentions etc., every day we marveled at the extent everybody we came into contact with went to make your stay a memorable one and at the lucidity, they each brought to their job.

The Lodge Bella Vista staff were poised and unfailingly polite to us throughout our entire stay and even witnessed them extending the same courtesy to some extremely ill-mannered and uncouth guests that came and left during our stay. I imagine attracting that caliber of personnel in the hospitality industry is no small feat especially considering the lodge’s location ‘off the beaten path’.
