LOVE IN ANY LANGUAGE

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner! We can’t wait to spread the universal language of love in a special way. Here are some ideas for inspiration: Stargaze at the beautiful African skylines as you enjoy a romantic starlit dinner at Mara Serena Safari Lodge. Revel at uninterrupted views of the lake and flamingos from the comfort of the lush Flamingo suite at Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp. Get lost in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean while you delight in a romantic sandbank picnic at Zanzibar Serena Hotel. Set sail on River Rufiji at the Selous for a one-of-a-kind sunset boat cruise. Soothe your inner selves with a revitalizing couples’ massage at our Maisha Health Club & Spa in all our city hotels, resorts and at the Mara Serena Safari Lodge. Enjoy the catch of the day amongst the other seafood cuisine at our specialty restaurant Jahazi Grill at Serena Beach Resort & Spa. Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature during a romantic nature walk at Serena Mountain Lodge. Whichever way you wish to demonstrate love and show them how much they mean to you; we have endless options for you.

CLEAN ENERGY FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Did you know that one of the leading cause of global disasters is climate change? Research shows that burning fossil fuels amongst other non-renewable sources of energy is one of the lead causes of climate change. Its effects can be dire and this is evident in what we have been seeing making headlines across the globe. There is a lot that can be done to reverse this and change how we do things. As an example, we as Serena Hotels are consistently working towards replacing the fossil based energy to renewable energy as well as have an effective energy management. Now, Serena Hotels has Solar Water Heating Systems in four properties and Solar Power Plants in five lodges. Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge, and more recently Mara Serena Safari Lodge have been fully solar powered off-grid since 2017, 2018, and 2019 respectively. Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp and Sweetwaters Serena Camp have been on a Grid-Tied Hybrid solar system since early 2018.
To date, the approximate cumulative environmental impact as a result of installing the solar power plants is as below:

  • Total green energy produced: 2,771.4 MWh
  • CO2 avoided: 1,949.44 tons
  • Trees that would need to be planted to extract the CO2 within 10 years: 155,950 trees

Serena Hotels is continuously committed to implementing the Solar Power Plant model at other Serena Properties across East Africa. Guests visiting these properties can enjoy guided tours to the plants to learn more about what they can do to conserve energy.
