The colors of this hotel represents Africa! Lovely place, located right in the center of the park (Actually a lot to travel, very far from any other hotels/camps). The rooms look like mud huts painted in yellow, orange and green. The hotel is so welcoming as you enter it. The view from the reception as well as the rooms is... More

Water was fairly priced and staff were friendly. Design of the hotel was unique and quirky. Beautiful animals to be spotted all around as you are in... More

We attended a wedding for a whole weekend at the hotel and everything was just amazing. From clean and comfortable rooms, helpful staff, great food, experienced game dribe guides, and everything you need to experience the very best of the mara.

If traveling by road, the road leading up to the hidden treasure Mara Serena is quite bumpy. But when you arrive at the hotel and see the many animals all around, you can agree that the ride was well worth it! During my strip when exploring the park I saw many lionesses and cubs, giraffes, elephants and a cheetah. The... More

It is one of the best places i have stayed in Maasai Mara. Great facility, good food, high class service. Standards you will get at a five star facility anywhere else. Only that the place is overbuilt, with a large imposing reception building and restaurant area. Great views, even from the treadmill in the gym.

The rooms are very cozy, great delicious food! This was definitely a great destination! However, beware of a few callous staff who may ruin your holiday particularly in the dining room!!!
