My fiance and I stayed here for 3 nights in late September. This was the fourth Serena lodge we had stayed in during our East Africa safari adventure, and this was my favourite. The reception area, restaurant and bar area were light and open with large windows and high ceilings. It is very impressive. Our room was also light in... More

This was our 5th visit to this lovely Serena Mara Lodge over the last 14 years. The lodge has had a great deal of improvement to its reception and entrance area and the rooms now have fans. We have always found this lodge busy, even when there is a down turn in tourism. This time it was busy again. We... More

Serena Mara has a spa which was wonderfully refreshing after the game drives! They've also renovated the lobby and restaurants with large glass windows giving you amazing vistas of the Maasai Mara. The guides are highly knowledgeable about the wildlife. Great food and service! Great family weekend!

Our 5th visit for 4 days was the best. We went for total relaxation and had decided not to go on game drives . The view from the poolside , rooms and view side are amazing . Buffet is well spread. The reception is huge with beautifully decorated walls. We enjoyed a good massage in the Maisha Spa .Manager Paul... More

Set on a hill top overlooking the Masai Mara plains. Authentic feel of freeform hut- like buildings. Rooms comfortable and gorgeous views from all rooms. Meals outstanding as was the service. Rooms all quiet and not troubled by neighbours.

Visited in August when migration. Amazing sights from the hotel of the Mara. Loved sitting by the pool and watching Mara River and beyond. Saw fantastic sights of river crossing. Saw every animal one can imagine. Food very good. Game drives very full-filing. Will surely return one day.

We stayed for two nights as part of a safari tour. The whole place had amazing views you could sit in your room and almost see as many animals passing as you had seen all day on safari. Wonderful staff and lovely restaurant and bar. At night time the walk down to your room is like a fairy grotto all... More
