  • The Bilis stay at Gulu Private Resort

    This by far one of the best resorts we have been to. The rooms were cozy, well kept and very clean. We enjoyed the whole ambience of the place. The service was impeccable and the hosts and chef were top tier. Thank you for making our honeymoon an unforgettable one.
