We has a terrific time at the Serena Kilanguni last weekend. We had a great time out for 4 days. My husband and I took our kids over for a mini break and were joined by two of my sis in laws kids. Thus we had two rooms (Rm 20 & 21). Our view from the balcony was amazing-it was... More

If I can give you one piece of advice about a Kenyan safari it is this: Stay at this hotel. The hotel is beautiful; the rooms are gorgeous; the staff is amazing. I wish I'd stayed in Serena hotels the entire trip but I wasn't aware that they are leaps and bounds nicer than any of the other hotels we... More

We came to the lodge for our organisations annual planning meeting, and it was the perfect choice because it is very serene and the service and the food is great.I really enjoyed the view from the restaurant and we got to see a leopard just after dinner. The WiFi in the rooms could do with improving though

The rooms and bathrooms were up to date with hot water running and the bedrooms were well done and clean. The waiters... More

This lodge is inside the part, so some dirt road driving is required to get there. The facilites seem fairly old and worn down. I didn't have any warm water for 2 days which calls for a rude awakening. I stayed for business meetings. While the meeting room is large and very well suited for such, the projector was not... More

We arrived as a family (2 adults and 1 child, age 11) at Kilaguni for a 2-night stay as arranged by Wild Eye after staying 3 previous nights in a Serena sister lodge (Serena Mara, separate review provided). We unfortunately arrived very late (8:30pm) after a long and gruelling ground transfer from the Mara Triangle due to congestion of Kenyan... More

I had stayed here before, but we arrived a little later than planned from Mombassa by road, the sun was already setting so my parents didn't appreciate the view until they awoke the next morning and looked out over the watering hole to Killy. Everything else had the warm friendly feel you come to expect. Would definitely stay again.
