Cottage

We love to make you feel at home.

Papaya Lake Lodge offers nine spacious and bright cottages. All are situated on the extinct volcano crater’s slope and have breathtaking views of Lyantonde Lake. Each cottage offers complete privacy, hidden from view by a natural screen of green treetops.

Eight of the cottages feature two beds (one king-size and one single), local stone-decorated bathrooms with shower units, and verandas equipped with deckchairs.

The ninth cottage – Family Cottage – is a two-level villa boasting three bedrooms, a living room with a fireplace, a spacious bathroom and a large terrace. For more details, please contact us.

Calm colours, subtle accessories, original interior design, simple but comfortable furniture – these are Papaya Lake Lodge’s trademarks. But mainly, it is the lush, green vegetation that makes it so easy to relax after an adventurous day.
