Situated on Shanzu Beach, only 30 kilometres north from Mombasa, fringed by beautiful white-sand beaches and shaded by coconut palms, the Serena Beach Resort & Spa is a tropical paradise.
Bright white against the blue sky, set in extensive lush green gardens, the architecture of the hotel replicates the winding lanes and colourful market places of a traditional 13th century Swahili town. At its heart lies the coral-built 'Fortress of Tranquillity' of the exquisite 'Maisha' Mind, Body and Spirit Spa.
Shanzu Beach is the most northerly portion of the coast between Mombasa and Mtwapa Creek. The hotel looks out over the waters of the Mombasa Marine National Park, a 200 square kilometre National Marine Reserve.
The Serena Beach Resort & Spa also offers a number of dining experiences, and a selection of bars, coffee shops and cafe areas, both inside and out. All are distinctive in their own way. Savour the authentic flavours and cooking styles of Mombasa, or enjoy inspired dishes from around the world. The acclaimed Serena Beach culinary team is exclusively focused on creating delicious cuisine. From sumptuous breakfasts to oceanfront seafood dinners accompanied by the finest selection of wines and perfectly mixed cocktails, all dishes feature the freshest high-quality ingredients.
To relax and rejuvenate, the Maisha Spa offers holistic therapies and has saunas, steam rooms and outdoor jacuzzis.
Featuring a well-developed coral barrier reef, the Park is visited by dolphin and turtles and plays host to 250 marine species to include crabs, butterfly fish, parrotfish, sea urchins, cowries, moray eel, lionfish, starfish and sergeant major fish. At low tide, the coral-sand beach also reveals extensive areas of channels that harbour a broad selection of marine creatures and shells.
The 164 luxury en-suite rooms and suites are set in single-storey buildings framed by Swahili architecture and landscaped parths and gardens to create the feel of a traditional Lamu village. All rooms and suites are tastefully appointed and features Maasai-inspired hand-painted wall frescos and private balconies or terraces with ocean views or facing the courtyard gardens.
The Family Village Rooms, 2 of which have sea views, have an entrance corridor leading to 2 separate en-suite bedrooms, making them ideal for families of all ages.
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
