Nairobi Serena Hotel

Traditional Hotel


Short description

A Leading Hotel of the World


Recommended for:
City | Food & wine | History & culture


Despite its central setting, Serena’s Nairobi offering is cloaked in manicured verdure, winning it the award for ‘Africa’s Leading Green Hotel’ at the World Travel Awards 2016. Indeed, its delightful gardens are set between the Central and Uhuru parks, shaded by acacia and bougainvillea trees. It’s no mean feat considering that much of the Kenyan capital’s highlights are within easy reach.


For many, the Nairobi Serena will be their introduction to East Africa. It’s fitting, then, that you’ll be welcomed with stylish comfort coupled with regional design accents. Art from across the continent is on display throughout, while you’ll stay sited with your room’s city or garden views – vistas taken full advantage of by the Deluxe offerings’ verandahs. Upgrades also add in king-size beds and the suites come with private gardens and up to 120 square metres of space.


The Mandhari restaurant is perhaps the hotel’s highpoint, having been widely acknowledged as one of Kenya’s finest dining establishments. By day you’ll be treated to Tuscan menus on the terrace before the evening beckons in Mediterranean delicacies. Expect candles, dimmed lights and gentle piano music, with the well-heeled enjoying cocktails in the lounge and cigars out on deck. It’s all supported by a superb wine list. For something more relaxed, head to the Bambara Lounge for a café service and patisserie delights.


Matching the reputation of the Mandhari, the hotel’s spa also ranks among Nairobi’s finest. Along with the usual pool and fully equipped gym, there’s an excellent selection of treatments on offer, from massages and facials to body brushing and reflexology. There’s also a range of aerobic classes, including zumba, salsa and yoga. Or, for some liquid refreshment, there’s the Aksum Bar. Overlooking the hotel’s water gardens, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a snack or glass of something cool.
