Serena Hotels, Resorts, Safari Lodges and Camps earlier on in the week, unveiled the new-look refurbished Mara Serena Safari Lodge and Sweetwaters Serena Camp.


The group has over the past year embarked on an extensive refurbishment of these properties while ensuring minimal disruption of normal guest services and comfort.

In Mara Serena Safari Lodge, refurbishment took place in two separate phases; an arrival lobby, reception, gift shop, bar lounge, terrace and the Maisha Spa & Gym which commenced February last year. The dining room was reconfigured to create a new buffet and active cooking areas. All these were completed and have been fully operational since July this year.

In the second phase of the refurbishment, the dining area has now been expanded to incorporate the former bar lounge, and a new coffee station and lounge, new public area washrooms; an internal fireplace, terrace and a court yard were created. These areas are now operational as from 1st October, 2013.

Over the period, the works at the restaurant saw their guests enjoy meals under canvas temporary facilities which continually attracted positive feedback from them.

The final phase of the Mara Serena Safari Lodge refurbishment will involve creation of more terraces by the dining room, and is expected to be complete in December 2013.

Meanwhile at Sweetwaters Serena, the camp has enjoyed a 5-star upgrade whereby in July last year, the camp unveiled 11 new tents that now make up the superior Morani Wing. The new building includes the reception, restaurant, guest lounge, bar lounge, gift shop and kitchen of which, all are now fully operational as of this week.

We at Uniglobe Let’s go travel welcome the Serena upgrades as it gives us the “heart” knowing that our clients will be comfortable and enjoy their safaris with their stay at the Serena properties.
