I stayed three nights because my flights didn't coordinate, and how fortunate for me I was at the Serena. Receptionist Valentina was extraordinary. She's happy, hakuna matata, and helpful. I spent most of my day on-line figuring my next destination. Valentina was so encouraging. Livingstone and Gasper were there too. The dining room is lovely and I always sat at...

After a short drive from Kilimanjaro airport we were welcomed with open arms into Lake Duluti Lodge, greeted with a welcoming warm refreshing towel. After checking in we were shown to our room which is a fantastic room with a beautiful view of Lake Duluti! The room is very spacious with a large net screening off the bed to keep...

We began and ended our northern Tanzanian safari here - this is a beautiful setting with great accommodations and staff! Lobby and dining area quite beautiful and comfortable. Wifi really only good in lobby but worried more about that at beginning than at the end of trip! Would stay here again!

Stayed there for a night due to a delayed flight and we couldn't get to the Lake Manyara Serena at that late an hour. Extremely friendly service who were happy to help out with any questions. The lobby is spacious and you could see a lot of monkeys around the main hotel building. The food served was delicious and the...

Stayed here our first night pre-safari and one day post-safari. Staff were friendly, eager to please. Greeted with cool washcloths and a refreshing juice upon arrival. Had breakfast and dinner in the dining room. Nice choices on the menu. WiFi was very spotty - only available in the lobby and many could not get any access at all. Keep your...

I love this lodge for its location, beautiful setting, great bar, lounge, gift shop, food but most especially for the staff. Nicest group especially one of the managers named Jane! I have come to love this place and her hospitality. I always feel like I am going back to see an old friend!

We stayed here for one night but were there for most of the day. We received a warm welcome with a glass of mango juice. There is a nice lobby area with a great shop selling souvenirs. The reception area is very impressive from the outside and there are lovely gardens and a stylish restaurant. We had lunch there. They...

We stayed at this Serena lodge on the first night of our 7 night safari. As with all of the Serena lodges experienced during the trip, we found the staff here to be helpful and friendly, the service impeccable and the food delicious and plentiful. The main building and the grounds were immaculately kept and the room was clean and...

A last minute upgrade to our hotel accommodations was a pleasant surprise to us. Lake Duluth Serena hotel is set off on a dirt road. Once inside the complex the scenery opens up to this nicly decorated hotel. The staff was very friendly and began to teach us the basic Swahili words. The rooms were quaint bungalows with hot water...

Very nice hotel run by very nice and attentive people. Main building is really nice. Rooms are nice as well. Not as close to the lake as I hoped it to be. But I would definitely come back if I would be in te opportunity to.
