Overview

3 nights minimum 
Buganda is in close proximity to everything such as Pangea dive shop, kit surfing, restaurants and Barbong Beach (Camp Bay). Buganda's dock access is a gateway to world class snorkeling, diving and mangroves. Property is five minutes to dive shop, kit surfing, La Sirena in Camp Bay and Barrabong. Barrabong beach is a part of Camp Bay beach is by far the best private beach on the island. This is the ultimate in off-grid getaways. The property is set in National Forest Park with less than 4 other occupants (locals) with limited electricity supplied by solar panels and no phone service (besides local Claro mobile service 4G). We caution against the tendency of many resorts to prefix any vaguely green initiative with 'eco'.

We caution against the tendency of many resorts to prefix any vaguely green initiative with 'eco'. We avoid the word in our description as we think it's been overused, instead, we practice it by collecting water, usage of solar panels to minimize our footprint. What most guests will come to appreciate is the high quality and detail. We won’t tell that our bed sheets are of the highest quality, nor brag about our mattresses (Tuft and Needle) and the fact this is will be the best rest/sleep experience you’ll have on the island. We’ll let you decide and hopefully you’ll keep it a secret. On the other hand, one thing we are most proud is lack of reliable internet, noise and interruptions and fact that Upadana isn’t for everyone…we are ok with that. Property is five minutes to dive shop, kit surfing, La Sirena in Camp Bay and Barrabong. Barrabong beach is a part of Camp Bay beach is by far the best private beach on the island. If you truly wish to be get lost or be off-grid; then this is your place. Welcome to Theravada! Note: We are located on the Eastend of the island across from Camp Bay on New Port Royal road.
