Macchar revealed that one of the three offers available at the moment is one where customers are entitled to a 15 percent discount. ““The festive season has already started; anyone can book for accommodation from now onwards till 15th January,” Macchar said in an interview. This offer comes with breakfast in the morning.
Macchar also said that the hotel has a special package for couples where they pay $110 and get a full board offer that guarantees them accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner for a single night. “This offer has been reduced from the usual $138 to enable couples to enjoy this Christmas season. One can book for more than one night. Our customers are welcome and can stay for as long as they want,”
The hotel has different price rates for different accommodation facilities. The standard double room costs $72, one bedroom cottage, which can be occupied by a couple, costs $90, two bedroom cottage (with two bedrooms each with a different double bed) costs $120, the three bedroom cottage, which is good for a family and accommodate five people costs $165 per one night.
On Christmas eve and Christmas day, Forest Cottages customers will pay Ushs45, 000 for a three course Christmas meal. The meal will consist of a selection of starters, different selection of the main meal course, and a wide selection of desserts. The meal’s menu will be continental, however; the general manager says local food can be prepared on a group order of more than 20people.
“The holidays have already begun; we are not looking at corporate customers but families looking to enjoy a good life, domestic travellers, Ugandans going for a holiday and those travelling for leisure. We are mainly focusing on local travellers this festive season. We want them to enjoy the festive season affordably. The foreigners are out of the country.” Macchar explained.
Macchar explained that Forest Cottages’ strength lays in their unique accommodation and tasty food. “You can’t get a place like this in Kampala, there are hotels in this town but none with this kind of atmospheric and safari setup.
