  • The launch of one of the biggest Champagne Bar in East Africa at Kampala Serena Hotel.
  • Introduction of the Architectural, Cultural and Conservation Tours at Serena Beach Resort & Spa.
  • Completion of the full, state of the art 18-hole golf course at Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa.
  • Launched Kenya’s first fully-fledged solar powered lodge at Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge.

The sound of the tides rising above the surface of the beach, beautiful white sandy beaches and the rich culture make Mombasa one of the sought-after tropical destination. And if you are looking for some sun and sand, a home away from home- the amiable people and the food will make it hard for you to say goodbye. Go in search of the rare fish during deep sea fishing, swim in the turquoise blue waters of Indian Ocean or go an historic expedition by visiting site like the Fort Jesus and Gedi ruins. Your stay with us at Serena Beach Resort and Spa will make this experience even better with our in-house, Architectural, Cultural and Conservation Tour to help you unearth aspects that make the resort one of the best in Mombasa. This place is just a slice of paradise that awaits your arrival. And the good news is that there are more airlines flying directly to Mombasa which means less hassle for travelers who have purely come for vitamin sea. Qatar Airways just started direct flights scheduled four times a week. The airline joins other international carriers such as Ethiopian Airlines, Turkish Airlines and RwandAir that currently fly directly into Kenya’s tropical paradise. We eagerly wait to host you at Serena Beach Resort & Spa in the new year.

Christmas to us means helping you create those infinite memories with friends and family, and more importantly sharing the love with the less fortunate children in our communities. This has been our tradition every Christmas and through the Light up a Life Christmas Initiative, we partner with children’s centers and schools to gift and spend our time with the little ones through fun Christmas activities. For the last 5 years, your continued support to grant the children’s wishes on the Christmas scrolls has put a smile on over 1500 children. This year, we did something a little different and this is a highlight of the initiative across our properties:

  • Kampala Serena Hotel, shared gifts and catered a Christmas lunch for children living with Albinism.
  • Mara Serena Safari Lodge hosted less fortunate children from the community Rescue and Early Childhood Centre for a Christmas lunch and are also collecting pledges to build them a new formal rescue center.
  • Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge catered a special Christmas lunch for children at Sikizana Rescue Centre.

We appreciate your support in this and some of our other CSR initiatives.


As we close the curtain on 2018, we hope you have broken the glass ceiling with the goals you had set. Whether it is a career, wellness, relationship or travel goals, positive vibes will get you there. And if the Christmas celebrations are anything to go by, then the new year’s celebrations are not to be missed. Join us in ushering the New Year by staying with us in some our idyllic city hotels in Africa. Nairobi, the vivacious East Africa metropolis will thrill you with its eclectic mix of suburbia and a touch of the wild just in the heart of the city. The Land of a Thousand Hills has made countless headlines this year enough for us to already give in to its unmatched beauty and array of activities waiting to be discovered. The Pearl of Africa has just been recognized on the National Geographic Traveler “Cool List” of places one must visit and while in this city, treat yourself like royalty by sampling the world’s finest champagne at our Pearl Restaurant & Champagne Bar. If you are looking to interact with new cultures, Dar es Salaam ‘haven of peace’ is more fitting for this immersion. Sea food lovers can explore the tropical paradise of Mozambique lauded for its magnificent beaches and sundry of seafood cuisine. Whichever way you choose to celebrate the new year; Serena city jewels has something for everyone…
