Nairobi Serena Hotel undergoes refurbishment
A major expansion and refurbishment programme is now under way at the Nairobi Serena Hotel, one of Kenya’s leading hotels.
The work began on 1 December and will be carried out in two phases over an 18-month period. Famed for exceptional quality, efficiency, service and five-star hospitality, the hotel, has been one of Kenya’s flagship properties for more than 40 years.
The renovations will significantly improve the quality of the hotel’s décor and facilities including additional guest space, with changes designed to reflect a pan-African flair with art and inspiration from Ethiopia, the Maghreb, West Africa and East Africa.
The works includes improvements to 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; a new 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, due to be completed in September 2017, will comprise new front of house areas – entrance, porte cochere, and reception; a refurbished Northern Wing with remodelled guest rooms; and a new floor of guest rooms and executive floor. The new parking silo will also be completed during this phase.
