We stayed in the Serena Amboseli for two nights at the beginning of a 14-day Safari. The hotel is situated at the fot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Unfortunately the mountain, when not covered by mountains in the first place, is not visible from within the hotel grounds. One always needs to get in the park itself to see it. We were lucky enough to see the mountain after a two day wait. Amazing !!
The hotel grounds are a real breeding ground for monkeys. You will find them everywhere. They're cute however and, as long as you keep rooms closed, not much of a nuisance.
The staff is very helpfull and friendly wether room stewarts or waiters. The lodge is clean and well kept. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable with a turn down service in the evening.
The restaurant is a bit dark and rather full (lots of tables on a small space give a bit of a cramped feeling). The food however is tastefull and at all times there's a show cooking theme.
In the evening the lodge has a comfortable terrace outside inviting you to have a nightcap. There is local dance and music and, in our case, even an elephant deciding to walk by.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated on the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest Mountain; beside a copse of giant Acacia trees and gently flowing natural spring. In the clean, crisp air of an Amboseli dawn, the snowcapped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro shimmering in the southern sky, you can sit atop a volcanic throne in the middle of the Masai plains and see the world. ... more less
