Serena Hotels invest in lodge upgrades, ready for the future


(Posted 10th October 2013)

Extensive refurbishments and upgrades have taken place over the past year at two of Serena Hotels’ most popular lodges and camps, Sweetwaters Serena Camp on Ol Pejeta and their Mara Serena Safari Lodge.

The latter’s transformation has caught wide attention as the lodge now has not only a new shine but has for all purposes transformed from what has been a familiar face since the mid 1970’s when the lodge was first opened into an architectural marvel.

The newly transformed public areas are now fully functional and the remaining works on creating more terraces for guests will be completed, according to information received from Serena Hotels, by early December this year in time for the busy Christmas and New Year season. Guests now enjoy an open view when entering the new reception area, besides finding a new boutique, bar and lounge with a new fire place, a reshaped main terrace and a new look dining room. Besides those, and for many these days quintessential, was the introduction of Serena’s branded Maisha Spa and Gym, much in demand as everywhere Serena has a Maisha in operation.

At Sweetwaters the entire camp was since July last year progressively transformed into a state of the art 5 star facility, with the introduction of 11 more luxurious tents, called the Morani Wing, and other facilities in line with Serena’s drive to offer that unique blend of location, service and ambience. Guests coming to Ol Pejeta, one of Kenya’s private conservancies, besides being an active cattle ranch, and choosing to stay at the Sweetwaters Serena Camp will no doubt be delighted with the many improvements they will find.
