We traveled as a family (2 adults, 1 child, 11-years old) and visited Kenya for 1 week in late July as arranged by Wild Eye. Three nights were spent at Mara Serena. (We also visited two other Serena properties during our stay, Amboseli Serena and then Kilaguni Serena in West Tsavo. Separate reviews to be provided on each). We thoroughly... More

Based on other experiences we expected this hotel to be in need of updating. This was definitely not the case. This hotel was an oasis of calm and serenity. The meals were buffet and all included. On the day we went out we ordered and received a lunch box. The whole stay was relaxing.

The views across the Masai Mara are breathtaking. Waking up to see elephants grazing peacefully from your bedroom balcony is magical. Executive Chef Anthony, Restaurant Manager Gamaliel and team couldn't do enough for our group to ensure our stay was extraordinary. Thank you so much.

This was our third visit to the Mara Serena Lodge. We stayed for four nights in July and caught some spectacular wildebeest river crossings. I was startled on arrival,to see how the lodge had been enlarged. The renovations are great with an amazing glass fronted balcony on the cliff top facing the Mara River. However, the dining room now gets... More

Its like a den with a great location on a cliff overlooking the Maasai Mara, Mara River and the great Migration. A perfect resort to enjoy wild life without wasting any time. Great ambiance, great hospitality, great staff and kitchen crew. The restaurant serves great food and caters to all dietary requirements. Pool area is very nice with beautiful views.... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, within the Park and on a hill. Hence the view is nice. And we spotted hippo, lion & cheetah within a km of the hotel. The ambiance is excellent and staff are always helpful and warm. Food is O.K , however for a long stay it might be a problem. The Wi-Fi is... More

What a beautiful place! Service was excellent, the views are tremendous, and the visiting wildlife (warthogs, baboons, etc.) is quite a treat. I highly recommend this lodge for couples, families, or folks traveling solo for an amazing backdrop to your safari adventure.

You cannot ever go wrong with the Mara Serena. It is a fantastic place, superbly located atop a hill thus affording wonderful views across the Mara plains. The comfort and cuisine are first class catering for most tastes. The Indian vegetarian food is particularly very good! The Mara river is about 10 minutes drive away and this is where we... More

The rooms were spectacular and had a viewing area and small deck within your room overlooking the river. There are a few animals that live on the property permanently, such as the warthogs. The hotel is high up on a mountain so you won't see a lot of wildlife up close and personal. The beds were very comfortable; the bathrooms... More
