We were at this beautiful resort for a wedding weekend. It is a great wedding venue, the architecture of the buildings and the way the buildings are spread out in the well maintained gardens, complete with the lake view make for an excellent venue. The rooms are clean, well decorated and bath robes too! Breakfast spread very good and we... More

I stayed at the Lake Victoria Serena for 4 days because I was attending a conference. The service is wonderful and the rooms are lovely. The food is decent, though the desserts are strangely flavorless...stick to their wonderful fruit offerings. If you need to attend meetings in Kampala, this hotel is very far given traffic. With traffic, it can take... More

Great Hotel, great view. Wonderful and friendly staff. Excellent venue for conferences - allows for concentration and relaxation at the same time. Going for the first time, you will think you have missed the way - dirt road to such an amazing facility!!! Highly recommended for a cozy romantic hideaway holiday!!!!!

Went there with the kids for a swim on a Sunday afternoon, but it was far from the relaxing experience we expected. Loud music at the pool side, inflexible attendants in the spa and way overcharged. In addition, the food is average, at best. If you really want to stay in Serena, head to the one downtown.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in both for ambience and quality of service. The only problem is getting in and out on a horrendous dirt track of 5kms. There are a number of in house facilities including spa, health club, tennis courts and golf course. A veritable oasis

Stayed at the Lake Victoria Serena Resort for a business conference. The property is absolutely stunning. It sits right on Lake Victoria in a quiet patch of land about 1 hour outside of Maputo. The property is new, and they were still doing a lot of work to it, but it is extremely well maintained with breathtaking views of Lake... More

A group of us(12) stayed there and where pleasantly surprised. It is a 5 mile drive over a dirt road that has potholes in potholes, to get there. All of a sudden this majestic hotel appears. It was surreal. Staff, food, service was perfect. I would highly recommend.

I stayed here on business and was double charged for my stay (once at internet booking and again at checkout). I brought this to management attention and they acknowledged mistake, but never credited card. After numerous calls and emails (which I have), managers kept saying refund on its way but it never came. Months and months have passed, no refund.... More

We just had a working retreat in a big group for three days and i was amazed at how the staff at Serena attended to all of us timely. Most commendable was the hygiene, the rooms are quiet even when they is an event outside, the rooms are sound proof, thus your serenity is guaranteed. The ambiance speaks for itself.... More

We recently spent just one night in Lake Victoria Serena, following a week back-packing on Kilimanjaro. The hotel and rooms were beautiful, clean and modern. The grounds and views of Lake Victoria were lovely. We made good use of the included steam showers, sauna and pool. A breakfast buffet was included and excellent. Dinner buffet was extra but also excellent.... More
