Serena Beach Hotel & Spa voted amongst the “Top 50 Most Amazing Hotels in the World”

Serena Hotels is honoured to have its flagship beach property in Kenya, The Serena Beach Hotel & Spa voted amongst the “Top 50 Most Amazing Hotels in the World under £199”. It was one of only six properties in Africa that made the list.

The Sunday Times Travel Magazine’s panel of experts scoured the globe to come up with their “definitive list of affordable stunners”, proving that perfection does not need to come with a hefty price tag.

The Serena Beach Hotel & Spa was said to “fit the bill for an easy-peasy post-safari flop and comes with clean sands, transparent seas and an aquarium-worthy marine reserve. It’s just 30 minutes from the airport and far enough from the city to feel like a proper retreat. Built in the style of a traditional Swahili village, complete with minaret and Omani-style fortress (which houses the ridiculously lavish spa), Serena’s not your typical Indian Ocean clone. Wood-beamed ceilings, Zanzibar chests, beds romantically swathed in mosquito netting and dusky-hued fabrics evoke the area’s Swahili heritage. While away your days with free catamaran sailing, windsurfing and perhaps a “try dive” in the pool, then recover in the Persian rug-strewn lounge, downing strong Kenyan coffee from the gleaming gold samovar.” With their hot tip being to “ask (at the Arab Dhow styled Seafood restaurant Jahazi Grill) for the table on the terrace by the ship’s wheel for uninterrupted views out to sea”.

Serena Hotels are located in some of the most exquisite and prime locations in 6 African Countries where one can experience the uniqueness, diversity of cultures and the dedication to service excellence.
