East Africa’s leading hotel chain, Tourism Promotion Services (TPS) Serena Hotels is delighted to announce that the Nairobi Serena Hotel – member of the Leading Hotels of the World, consistently voted Nairobi’s leading business hotel and receiver of a number of National and International awards and accolades – is set to undergo an expansion and refurbishment program in two phases over an 18 month period, commencing 1st December 2016. Famed for exceptional quality, efficiency, service and five-star hospitality, Nairobi Serena Hotel, has been operational for over 40 years.
Serena strive to constantly improve our existing products and services to meet the ever-changing needs and exceed the expectations of our guests. The expansion and refurbishment program will make Nairobi Serena Hotel the premier city hotel in Nairobi for accommodation, fine dining, conferencing and wellness (through the Maisha Health Club and Spa).
The renovations will significantly improve the quality of the décor, facilities including additional guest space. It will reflect a pan-African flair featuring art and inspiration from Ethiopia, the Maghreb, West Africa and East Africa. The scope of works includes: better function and meeting rooms including a new ballroom; a parking silo for approximately 100 cars; reconfigured and upgraded guest rooms; a new floor of guest rooms; anew executive lounge; a new specialty restaurant; revamped hair saloon and guest shop; refitted back of house areas; improved infrastructure, security as well as arrival experience (entrance, lobby, porte cochere).
The first phase, to be completed in September 2017, will comprise new front of house areas – the entrance, porte cochere, and reception; a refurbished Northern Wing with remodeled guest rooms; and a new floor of guest rooms and executive floor. The brand new parking silo will also be ready.
During construction, works will take place from 0800H to 1700H on weekdays and 0900H to 1300H on Saturdays, with no activity scheduled for Sundays.
To guarantee delightful alternative guest experience and uninterrupted operations, all affected services have been relocated. Our guests can still enjoy our world-class accommodation, Mandhari – the fine dining restaurant, Café Maghreb – the all day dining restaurant, the Ethiopian inspired Aksum bar, the well-manicured gardens for functions, three meeting rooms, swimming pool and pool bar and the Maisha Gym and Spa.
Please note that any query with bookings already made or with allocations will be addressed by the reservations team.
In our quest to take our service a notch higher, Serena have carried out additional staff training, reinforced the front office and guest relations’ teams. The Management team will continue to be on call 24 hours a day at the numbers provided.
Serena would like to assure all our guests, suppliers and stakeholders that disruption as a result of the expansion and refurbishment will be managed efficiently and sensitively to ensure that the products and services still meet our guests’ comfort and expectations during their visit to Nairobi Serena Hotel.
We will keep you updated on the progress of the ongoing expansion and improvements during this project. Serena would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support and loyalty to Serena Hotels over the years. In the event of any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your ARP Travel Consultant.
