This is a typical Serena lodge with two-story "huts" along winding paths. The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are well-appointed. The public areas are nicely done with sitting areas, a bar and the restaurant. The food is good and served buffet-style, except for the entrees, which are ordered off a menu. The desserts and breads here were better than at any of the other three Serena Lodges we stayed at on this trip. Take time to stroll the beautiful grounds and watch out for the monkeys, which will eat anything not nailed down. There is loud, local entertainment each evening until about 9 pm, so ask for a room further away from the lounge if you want a quieter experience. The lodge is located on a ridge high above the lake so don't expect to see any big animals from your room - they're just too far away.
