After hearing several remarkable reviews from people that have been to Naguru Skyz Hotel, one has no option but to drive towards Ntinda; seeking to see Kampala’s newest treasure. Located right at the top of Naguru Hill, you know as soon as you get to the top that you have arrived. As you drive into the hotel, it is evident that a lot of thought and personal touch was put into its construction. With a parking lot that can hold about 400 cars, this hotel is definitely going to be the new hang out spot.
Walking into the lobby, you are greeted by very pleasant and hospitable staff straight from the security at the entrance of the hotel, to the beautiful ladies at the front desk. The hotel’s major theme colours run from beige, grey, coffee and cream and has great marble floors. To the right of the lobby there is a mini coffee shop where you can order tea, coffee, and an assortment of delicious pastries. As a sister hotel to the Protea chains, the standard is nothing short of high class.
Past the coffee shop you get a great view of the swimming pool that is surrounded by a restaurant for those who prefer to have their meals by the poolside. The pool area also has a well-stocked bar and would be perfect for a party. In fact, when it comes to party venues Naguru Skyz Hotel has several options that we shall explore as we go on.
With 141 rooms, the hotel is divided into four blocks, each with five floors. Each floor has a corridor on both left and right, which leads to three rooms on each side. There are basically two types of rooms at Naguru Skyz; the standard room that has a bed, shower, mini bar and closet which has an ironing board and iron for those who prefer to do laundry themselves. There is also the option to send your laundry to room service for help. There is also a safe in each standard room where you can keep your valuables. The standard room has a shared balcony in the event that you want to spend time outside and look at the amazing 180 degree view of Kampala. There are two standard rooms on each side of the floor. This room is perfect for a business trip or short visit.
The cream, black and coffee colours of the rooms make them feel so cozy and warm. The second type of room is the deluxe room.It is evidently much bigger and more spacious than the standard room. It has all the same facilities with exception of the bathtub which the standard doesn’t have. The deluxe room has a more spacious and private balcony and the mini bar is noticeably larger too. This room is perfect for couples, a small family and could also be great for a business trip if you like to be as comfortable as possible.
