Latitude 0 Degrees Epitomising African Hospitality

0

Latitude 0 was carefully designed and crafted to fit among the indigenous trees and orchids atop Makindye Hill, six kilometres south-east of the city of Kampala. An urban oasis surrounded by natural beauty, it has stunning views of Lake Victoria and the sprawling city.

We are more than just a hotel with 47 guest rooms and suites, a 24-hour front desk, and fast airport transfers. We are two restaurants and three bars with culinary delights and a wide variety of drinks from all corners of the world. We are a haven for relaxation and fitness through our spa, gym and swimming pools. We are a socialising and networking hub with lounges, a rooftop bar, private dining and entertaining spaces, and have a calendar filled with music, art, fashion and business events. And we are a co-working hub with private workspaces, meeting and conference rooms, and hot-desking. Latitude 0 is African hospitality at its best, with a modern and contemporary twist.

Your personal sanctuary

Our rooms are more than just the typical hotel offerings and a place to lay your head at night. The Latitude brand is synonymous with bespoke artwork and exceptional interior design and our new Kampala location lives up to this reputation.

Each of our rooms and suites make use of natural light, and plentiful tree canopies to create spaces that are soothing and stylish, bedecked with luxurious linens, elegant furniture and bespoke artworks. Our 47 rooms and suites display elements of our sustainable and cutting edge African design permeating throughout; perfect for a stopover en route to your safari adventure or that longer business trip.

Dine in gorgeous settings

The Latitude 0 kitchens will create gastronomic delights that fuse together flavours from around the globe and offer an alluring array of wines from some of the most renowned estates in South Africa and Europe.

But our gourmet offering isn’t just about the food; it’s also about where and how you decide to dine, with our main restaurant, The Other Side, or the rooftop bar being some of the options. Inside or out? Garden, poolside or with a view of the shimmering Murchison Bay of Lake Victoria? Something light and healthy, a fine dining or casual experience sharing dishes perfect for creating connections with those with whom you are networking or socialising? The choices are many and it’s entirely up to you.

Rejuvenate mind and body

Self-care need not go out the window during your travels and the Latitude 0 spa is the perfect place to decompress, especially after a stressful day or an intense session at our gym. We have three en suite treatment rooms in which to pamper you, as well as two private group spaces where you can indulge with your friends, or that someone special.

The products we use in our spa were born out of a love for Africa and are free of harmful substances. Through harnessing a powerhouse of plant-based oils and extracts from African species that have adapted to cope with the harshest conditions on the planet, this unique product range can help your skin do the same. We are big believers in enhancing your beauty, the natural way.

Engage, Work and Play

The Works was conceived with entrepreneurs in mind: a forward-thinking, thoroughly modern business environment that’s both stimulating and stylish. We’ll be offering a mix of open-plan ‘hot-desking’, as well as single and multiple-person private workspaces, and then of course, meeting rooms and conference areas.

Latitude 0 is poised be a prime venue in Kampala for concerts, TED-style talks, art exhibitions, movies, fashion shows and workshops, all designed to stir the mind and body and encourage stimulating interactions between you and your fellow guests.

Sustainability

As we continue to spread throughout Africa, we strive to keep our environmental impact as low as possible and supporting local industries. Forging real connections and commitments allows us to create statement interiors produced by local communities using recycled, upcycled and sustainable materials. Curated original artworks form huge centrepieces in lobbies, ornate hand beaded textiles adorn the stylish bedrooms and our funky recycled and upcycled furniture pushes the boundaries of local artisans’ talent, and the materials they have at hand. We are proud to be ambassadors for emerging African talent, and our ethical attitude towards our existence helps to create a unique vibe that is unlike any formulaic hotel.

Box:

Perfectly situated atop Kampala’s Makindye Hill, Latitude 0 is the latest addition to the Latitude Hotel family. It continues the tradition of excellence, creativity and unmatched hospitality the Latitude brand is known for.
