Speke Apartments conquer Kampala New Year celebrations

KAMPALA, UGANDA- With an exodus of Basummer (Ugandans In the Diaspora) besieging Kampala City at last Christmas and New Year, their eye lashes were being raised in surprise on seeing property developments like Speke Apartments along Wampewo Avenue.

Accustomed to staying in less fancy neighborhoods, some were hurrying to book units for their families there. “This is far better than a council flat in London,” observed Gideon Kityo from East London.

“Lo! Ugandans back home are sprinting kilometers away from us in investment.” Asked what is in store Kityo learned that the facility specializes in self-catering apartments for; corporate, leisure and family travellers who come to Kampala for short or long term.

“This Wampewo neighborhood combines aces like: being in a great location near Kampala Central Business District, being secure in this era of global terrorism threats, serenity, being spotless clean and serviced,” he told his wife Phina who is based in London, on phone “The accommodation is spread out over five floors.”

Conducted on a tour was a revelation the facility provides: one, two and three bedroom apartments that compete favorably when it comes to style and hospitality offered by hotels. The luxury rooms are spacious and command a good view of some of the city’s other hills. Like Kityo, these apartments are leaving an indelible impression on anyone who claps their eyes on them.

It’s a combination that represents an unforgettable experience.” True to his word residents have posted on their Facebook walls photos when spending warm, breezy afternoons, lazing in the sun, dining or sipping tumblers if wine. There is the luxurious spa and gym. Then there are the Pent Houses which are Kampala’s brand new face of luxury and decadence in the property world.

The plush property opens to a stunning living room with gorgeous furniture fitted with soft padded upholstery, high qualities of fixtures, furnishing, and appliances and is very ready to move in state. “It comes with three bedrooms each with its own bathroom, a balcony and a dining table with six chairs,” says John Reynolds a former occupant. “There is the wooden floor, an extensive living room and entertaining space.”
