a fantastic finale
After 8 days of rattling over safari roads and glamping at tented camps, my friend who is used to better declared this lodge a "proper" accomodation. It was a treat to enjoy this beautiful facility with spacious rooms, good wifi, the pool and evening performances, an astounding view, and a mouthwatering buffet.
Looks like Disneyland!
Lodge property consists of 2 story huts. Rooms are large. Shower was tiny. Each room had a balcony. The grounds are beautiful, staff is very friendly. Infinity pool. Great buffet. Evening entertainment - local dancer/acrobats
Lush and peaceful
Lovely water features with very helpful staff. A place to be pampered by super friendly people. The room was spacious, clean, quiet, and well-stocked. Lots of wildlife. It was weird seeing African elephants in a jungle setting. The park is known for their lions that rest in trees.
Highly Recommend - Luxury in the wild
I would like to start this post off by saying thank you to the staff at the Serena Safari Lodge in Lake Maynara. I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for luxury accommodation as well as great food. We are very picky and like fine dining, the lodge offered us the fine dining and high quality food options along with great service from the staff. Shoutout to the staff who were wonderful and especially the chef as we really enjoyed the food, the chef even came out to say hello while we were at dinner. The property: Beautiful property, very clean. There will be bugs, it is Africa, but I would like to say the hotel did quite a good job at keeping rooms and spaces extremely clean along with keeping bugs away. I liked the open air feel to the lodge. Beautiful views and beautiful pool. I like to stay active and keep fit, but there is no gym at this property, they do have a football field where you can run around though. The room: I liked the design and aura of the room, we had good air circulation and were not hot although there is no air conditioning. The bathroom was nice as well as the shower. I did not think the beds were that comfortable (a little hard). This could be improved. One thing that I absolutely loved -> the aloe body lotion in the bathroom. The smell was amazing and it is a great lotion to have especially when you are in the hot sun all day and want to make sure that your skin is soothed. Food: Amazing amazing amazing. Tastes were great. The breakfast was so delicious along with the dinner. Great options for all types of foodies. Foodies and food lovers will definitely love this lodge as well as any Serena lodge (they do an amazing job on dining). I would also like to say the dining room staff were very attentive, right when we walked into the dining room they would greet us and show us to our table. Serena resorts and lodges are one of the oldest and most established luxury lodges out there and it would be very rare for me not to stay with them when I visit the wild parks. I wish I could get some more of the lotion in the bathroom for at home! Cannot wait to stay with Serena again in the future. I would also like to note that everywhere it may show that this is officially a 3 star hotel, but it is much more like a 4 or 5 star hotel and guests from the US including myself I am sure would enjoy it as I did. Kudos to the staff of this resort and thank you for making our stay here so great.
