Such a treat to stay in this modern Hotel overlooking the Mara. From spacious lobby to quiet rooms it was very comfortable. Buffet Food was well prepared and enjoyable. Many good food options to choose from. Would recommend this Hotel to relax after a long day on Safari!

We stayed just for a night at the Serena - it is truly a Serena property. Amazing locale. Breath taking views from the resort. Great courteous staff, lovely Indian food and to top it all - the great safari drives - the wide range of animals witnessed - the flock of different species of birds - truly a fantastic unforgettable...

I spent 2 nights and 3 days in Mara Serena in mid May. The whole trip was wonderfully organised and everything was just so perfect. Simon, our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and we managed to see everything which we could see in that trip. What was also nice was the hotel's flexibility in organising food for my one year old.

The Maasai Mara National Reserve on the Kenya side is essentially divided in two by the Mara river (one of the main rivers the Wildebeests must cross during the migration. While there are no restrictions about guides from one side or the other crossing over, there is only one out-of-the-way bridge for this to occur. Since the Serena side has... More

Excellent accomodation; caring and warm staff; excellent food; beautiful ambience. Lovely to see animals just outside the restaurant even as you are enjoing your meals. This is a place where one should go with family / friends and stay for a few days exploring the Hotel and enjoying the safari.

The architecture has an interesting and pleasant African taste. The rooms all have a verandah and good view of the plains. The gym is in very good condition and there is a sauna as well. The buffet food was very well prepared although I would not want to be there in high season - it would be crowded in the... More

Welcomed by a lady who recognized me from my last visit there which was about 20 years ago. Was impressed that she coul even remember my name. Very friendly and professional staff - excellent service. Good food. Nice rooms with stunning views. Great value for your money. Would definitely go back again.

This is truly a fabulous property with a breath taking view of Mara Game reserve. You can sight animals standing on the hotel deck. The rooms are good and wifi works even in the rooms. Try and select a room close to the main lobby otherwise it could be a long climb up. The staff were courteous and helpful. We... More

Spent weekend with family at Mara Serena. The lobby beautiful giving you fantastic view of the Masai Mara. Hotel staff is friendly and hotel rooms are clean. My baby fell sick and we had a resident doctor to assist. Food was good, could have been better , I expect more variety, but whatever was served was good. Please note: for... More

When we awoke, the giraffes were in the distance, munching on tree tops and clearly visible from our balcony. Luxurious, each room has a fantastic view of the valley as the hotel is located at the top of a hill in the midst of wilderness & Mother Nature. Very helpful staff, wonderful food with sufficient variety for anyone. A very... More
