Pineapple Bay Resort

Pineapple Bay Resort

Offering the only full service lodge on Uganda’s Bulago Island, Pineapple Bay Resort is part of an intimate safari lodge group that seeks out some of Uganda’s most spectacular yet virtually unknown destinations and introduces them to small numbers of adventurous guests. Enjoy leaving the crowds behind and experience the best of balmy Ugandan beaches on this secluded 500-acre island on Lake Victoria. Glorious sunshine, expansive sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms, rocky cliffs, tropical forests, and local wildlife await guests of this spectacular island paradise.

Begin your adventure with a taste of the most delicious and juicy pineapples in the world, fresh-picked from the garden. In true farm-to-table style, Pineapple Bay provides opportunity for you to harvest your own greens, avocado, and more from the resort’s exceptional organic fruit and vegetable garden. Devise your own cocktail at the boat bar and savor delicious meals in the lodge, around the pool, or by the romantic lakeshore illuminated by lantern light and starlight.

After playing or relaxing all day, retreat to your chalet, one of eight expansive accommodations at the resort. Several chalets are spacious enough to accommodate small families, and each boasts a long veranda, inside sitting area, large shower, and bathtub with lake views. Awake to a new day with piping hot tea delivered to your door, courtesy of the exceptional and professional staff.

Hundreds of birds make the island their home, so birding expeditions are an ever-popular outing. Other memorable activities include lounging on the beach or by the pool, hiking to hilltops on the island for impressive 360-degree views, taking nature walks through the island’s small rainforest, fishing for Nile perch and tilapia, swimming, and visiting Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary (only four miles from Bulago Island). For families with young children, Pineapple Bay offers fun activities such as pony rides, tractor trips, and art projects.
