Great place to relax!
Actually visited hotel earlier for a weekend. Situated in the middle of rainforest it is a quiet place to just sleep, relax and walk between old trees and learn about herbal medicine. Excellent for birdwatching and other wildlife popping up during the evening or night at the pool looking for water. Great champagne breakfast, great food and friendly staff. Though you gave to keep windows doors closed otherwise you have unexpected visitors (monkeys). And if you lucky Mt. Kenya revels itself early morning! Worth waking up at sunrise! Recommend for quiet weekends!
Still a great lodge
Stayed here many years ago, when I was young, and it hasn’t changed a bit..fabulous lodge, reall friendly staff, and a view to die for.. looking out over the water hole where you are visited by all manner of animals.. the staff will wake you for nocturnal visitors on your hit list, but go down to the underground viewing bunker, and you are amongst the animals.. will definitely be going back
Lovely place to stay for a night.
The accommodation was very good and the facilities too. With the balcony of each room facing the water hole one can see the beautiful variety of animals that come to quench their thirst. The hotel does offer a jungle walk and it is very informative and worth while to take it.
Was hoping to see more animals
When I was planning my Africa trip, my friend suggested going to a tree top hotel to see animals. The Serena Mountain Lodge was the ideal choice. It is way up in Mt Kenya Park...about a three hour drive from Nairobi. When I arrived, I thought the hotel was very homelike. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. My room was okay. The bathroom was more of a problem. The toilet ran all of the time and the shower was just okay. All of the rooms overlook a small pond with salt licks that attract animals all day and night. The meals are at set times. They offer afternoon nature walks. At night after dinner, the “watchers” come with a list of animals that might come during the night. You let them know which animals you would like to see... and they will come and wake you when the animals arrive. I only got to see a couple of animals... but I’m still glad that I tried the experience. It was quite pricey...so I wouldn’t consider it an absolute must do.
We enjoyed a great time at this lodge, watching animals walk into the waterhole to drink and lick salt. The elephants and buffaloes were a top one for most of the group members. The other highlight was loads of birds....
