A true hidden gem!

My gorgoues boyfriend arranged this trip and words aren’t enough to say thank you baby for bringing me here. We had such an amazing time, Brovad Sands lodge is such a stunner lil place. The room decor was out of this world, loved the grass thatched roof, everything about it was beautiful.
Although it was raining heavily am glad the rain didn’t dampen our spirits, we were still able to go out and explore the beautiful surroundings.
A massive thanks to Ronnie and the lovely staff for the great service, you made our stay incredibly wonderful.
Highly recommend Brovad Sands Lodge!

“Lovely accomodations, and great service!!”

Lovely accomodations, and great service!!

This place does it right. The rooms are individual thatched cottages which are clean, well decorated and offer great views. The common areas, and outside areas are also excellent, and the bar and reception area feature some the most comfortable seating I’ve encountered in Uganda. The food was good, although the buffet style meals were overshadowed by the pork muchomo i had on my last night. It was so good that I considered staying an extra night just to eat it again! The service is attentive and efficient. This will be my first choice for lodging if I should ever return to the Ssese islands again.

“A beautiful place to stay on the Ssese islands.”

A beautiful place to stay on the Ssese islands.
Our stay at Brovad Sands was very enjoyable. The food was great and the service was excellent. At one point in the evening our hot water shut off, but the woman at the desk was very helpful and got the hot water working as soon as she could. They lit a campfire on the beach for us all to enjoy and organized a guided nature walk for my friend and I around the island. I would highly recommend this resort and I would love to go back to Buggala Island.

The room was generously proportioned, with a superb bathroom.

Great Place for a family retreat and i hope to come back again sometime….Thank you brovad sands lodge for the wonderful experience.

“Favorite Ssese moments@ Brovad Sands”


Brovad sands Lodge gave me the ultimate Ssesse experience right from the word go. I realised it was just what I needed with my group of friends.

It all started from the very warm & friendly smiley reception all the way from the parking lot at the hotel. We were greeted and welcomed & our luggage offloaded by the amazing staff. The ambience, the feel plus the scenary at this place is absolutely amazing that you can almost taste the freshness in the air and the serenity of the surrounding just engulfs you while you’re there.

The Chef prepared us the best meals during our stay from our welcome diner, to breakfast and lunch by the shore the following day! The food was so well prepared, the spices well blended, the serving and presentation done so meticulously and the waiters were there offering the best service I had received from any good hotel around, even compared to Kampala. I experienced one of the most timely &orderly service from the Brovad restaurant during my stay.

The cottages are very comfortable, so spacious, the bathrooms are well done, with hot water , a bath tub and a shower. The place has got Dstv connected and wifi , basically a very luxurious stay and service is only a call away while you are in the cottages.

I totally recommend spending time at Brovad sands lodge while in Ssesse island. You’ll get value for money and most of all, an extremely comfortable stay with the most amazing service and customer care.
