Gracious and elegant, the Emin Pasha evokes another era when taste, gentle service, ambience and comfort were the hallmarks of a good hotel. We still believe this to be true, but we know that our guests also need modern amenities and up-to-date technology to ensure a happy stay. At Emin Pasha we have created a harmonious balance between old and new. Tradition blends seamlessly with contemporary - from the architecture to the furnishings and soft touches, to those modern amenities that today's business and leisure traveler requires.

Our restaurant and wine bar, FEZ, is open to the public as well as to guests. Our carefully planned menu changes frequently and draws its inspiration from many quarters, with strong Pan-African and Asian influences, as well as the more traditional continental fare.

Located right near the centre of town, the hotel is set in two acres of peaceful park-like tropical gardens. Big mature trees, flowering shrubs and scented vines abound, yet this is within walking distance to the Commercial Business District and many Embassies and Foreign Missions.

With only twenty rooms, we are able give our guests personal attention and a high level of service, while offering privacy and calm in an otherwise hectic world.

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.

Molton Brown toiletries and oversized bathrobes are a nod to the 'spa culture' (we also have in-house massage, reflexology and beauty treatments), and to calm your frazzled nerves, each room looks out through french doors over lush gardens or courtyards. Most rooms have small private terraces or sitting areas. There are no endless miles of soulless carpeted hallways here - our room are all accessed directly from outside, and many also have a second door leading straight out into the gardens.

All the rooms have air-conditioning, direct dial telephones, internet and satellite television.

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. Our wine list is extensive and exclusive, chosen by knowledgeable wine enthusiasts and brought in from South Africa on a regular basis and our wide range of cocktails and single malt whiskeys are a regular fixture with our 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 our local produce. Chef Shaun Christian scours the markets and creates the menu around what is fresh and good and local. The offering is eclectic, with clear Pan-African and Asian influences..but not forgetting the more traditional continental favourites.

Our newest area, the upstairs terrace or 'bar under the stars' is perfect for sundowners. The view from the terrace looks west towards the sunset, across the treetops to the spire of Makerere University and the leafy hills beyond. THis is also an ideal spot for an after dinner coffee and brandy, looking at the twinkling lights of Kampala.

For Private parties, meetings or functions, our chef can create a menu specially for you, be it cocktails,brunch, a sit-down dinner or something bigger on the terrace or out in the garden.

For the Business Traveler

For the business traveler, each room has internet and plenty of desk space to get your work done. We also have direct dial telephones in the rooms and wireless internet hotspots around the property so if you want to take your laptop to the pool or to the wine bar, you can stay connected.

There is a small business centre and several private rooms which can be booked for meetings or small conferences. We have hosted many workshops here at Emin Pasha and can arrange working breakfasts, private meetings, conferences, cocktails etc.

Our central location makes it easy to get around Kampala, and our staff are more than willing to help you with any extra business arrangements you may need.

And at the end of a long hard day, isn't it nice to know that you can relax in a lovely hotel in a lovely setting?

For the Leisure Traveler

For the leisure traveller, Emin Pasha is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy what the hotel has to offer. Have a massage, get your toes done, we even have a hairdresser on-call. The food is excellent, the wines are legendary...

The hotel is the ideal base from which to explore Kampala or to launch a Uganda Safari, to acclimatise to the time and the weather before setting off upcountry. It also is a civilised and welcome end to a long dusty journey - have a long hot bath or tropical shower, share a bottle of wine on our terrace under the stars, enjoy a fantastic meal with a distinct pan-African and Asian flavour, and drink in the atmosphere before setting off home.

Whether you come for business or pleasure, Come and stay a while.
