Unrivalled Simplicity

In the 90s, Munyonyo, was still considered an inhospitable backwater finishing village best by marauding moneys pillaging the farmer’s crops. In the late 90s, Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia – Chairman, Ruparelia Group of Companies acquired tracks of land there, with a dream of building a lakeside retreat for his family and friends to relax at over the weekend and without out having to drive out of the city center – Kampala. However, as construction started on the cottages (now the Presidential Cottages) and the horse stables, Dr Ruparelia’s dream “spiraled” out of control from a family retreat into, the now 90-acre resort that is home to the five star Speke Resort Munyonyo and Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort and is the premier resort in Uganda. When it comes to accolades the resort has a number of them as testimony from United Nations Conferences, African Union Summits, to rock concerts. But its crowning moment, was being chosen to host the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2007. There is more to Speke Resort Munyonyo and Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort that just a venue for meetings.
