Serene Estate is a very nice, tastefully designed building with Bauhaus influences and high quality workmanship. It has a bright airy and clean feel to it, which nicely blends into the African surroundings. The owners are clearly proud of it, and the facilities live up to their promises. On the hospitality side of things, the experience is probably a matter... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here for 2 nights. The house is very modern and a totally different experience to staying in most other guests houses. It is more like a boutique hotel with large bedrooms. Olga and her team are all very helpful. Breakfast is beautifully served on the terrace with an extensive choice to start the day. A very...

Excellent service, beautiful room. Thanks to Olga, Hans, Elaine and Janet. Special thanks to Elaine who helped us with plans for our trip to Drakensberg. We loved everything at Serene-estate, can't find anything that we were disappointed with.

We stayed 5 nights here. The house and especially the rooms impressed us very much. The rooms are huge and very tastefully decorated. Everything is there, what you need for a pleasant stay. From the private terrace you can go into a beautiful garden with pool. The service is first class. Our special thanks go to Elaine, who took very... More

Our experience at Serene Guesthouse was excellent. One of the most beautiful rooms I've ever slept in. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff knowledgable about the area and very helpful. Perfect for day trips into iSimangalso Park, near beautiful beaches (they provide beach towels and a cooler to pack your own picnic lunch) and great opportunity to see Hippos... More

We planned to stay for one night, but once we had seen this fancy, upmarket, stylish place, we decided for a second one. Superbe architecture, friendly hosts - the best place to be in (fair) St. Lucia.

The hotel is even better and more beautiful than on the photos from the website. We stayed here for six nights and it was fantastic. Two nights in a suite next to park and pool, four nights upstairs in the top room. Latter we enjoyed even more, since we had a small but nice ocean view, and much light in... More

Unique design in Santa Lucia. The room had a very nice view, was quite spacious and relaxing. Breakfast was super delicious with a special view on the garden. People were very nice and helpful with is. We'll come back.
