Serena Beach Hotel and Spa

Tranquility defined close to marine exploration opportunities

Designed in the style of a 13th century Swahili town, Serena Beach is situated on the beautiful Shanzu beach adjacent to Mombasa Marine National Park, a great viewing point for turtles and host to 250 marine species.

Luxurious rooms are set in two-storey buildings and overlook the tropical gardens or Indian Ocean. For delicious fresh seafood we recommend the Jahazi Grill restaurant and if it's a little relaxation you're after, make sure to head for the excellent Maisha Spa.

Offering a beachfront swimming pool, sports facilities such as a tennis court and squash court, and three restaurants, the Serena Beach Resort & Spa, is ideal for those seeking rejuvenation amid paradise whilst family rooms are ideal for family groups, as well as the children's animation programme.

Wonderful Hotel

Windlesham, United Kingdom

An old style colonial hotel in beautiful grounds. The staff are so attentive from the front desk to the restaurant. Food was excellent throughout, especially if you go to the seafood restaurant. The room was very comfortable and clean and we appreciated the efforts to ensure there no mosquitoes in the room at night. The snorkelling was worth the extra money, but beware the sellers on the beach who are relentless in their attempts to engage you in conversation.

A Perfect Setting

Lagos, Nigeria

Another yearly reunion. A band of 45 brothers from around the globe gathered this year in Kenya. Our choice of Serena Beach Resort ticked all the boxes...we had fun. Real fun. The food was superb and the staff were great. Many of us were almost in tears on our start day as we got a surprise from the staff...a Jambo dance song and bottles of sparkling wine. We had fun.
