Serena Beach Resort & Spa is an impressive, 150+ room resort located just outside of Mombasa on the Kenyan coast. One of the most striking of Kenya’s large beach resorts, Serena has been styled to resemble a traditional Swahili town, complete with replica market squares, Persian-themed water features, winding pathways lit by Zanzibari lanterns, and intricately carved wooden balconies. Of course it also offers all the facilities that one would expect of a large beach resort: swimming pool, spa and gym, tennis court, extensive grounds, multiple restaurants and bars.

Serena Beach Resort has a bit of character and offers all the comforts you could ask for, provided you’re happy in a large resort. Those looking for somewhere a little more exclusive and intimate, however, will do better to look at one of the many smaller lodges available on the Kenyan coast and neighbouring islands.


Serena Beach Resort offers 166 air-conditioned room and suites, divided into several categories. All are well-presented and comfortably furnished. Amenities in the standard rooms include LCD TV, hair dryer, mini bar, room safe and full en-suite facilities. Each room has a verandah, most with a view of the pool and beyond it the ocean.


There are a number of restaurants and bars, including table d’hôte and buffet options. Serena Beach Resort is booked on a half-board basis.
