Indian Ocean Express
Time for a well-earned break on the Indian Ocean? Time to rejuvenate with sun, sand and some serious ‘me time’? We have the perfect package for you. Simply step on to the marvellous Madaraka Express Single Gauge Railway (SGR) in Nairobi and enjoy a first-class rail safari through some of Kenya’s most dramatic scenery. Then step off in Mombasa where our driver will be waiting to whisk you off into the stylish Swahili sophistication of the Serena Beach Resort and Spa.
What could be easier?
Thereafter, all you have to do is to enjoy two nights of opulent rejuvenation in the air-conditioned comfort of our spacious Garden Room, two nights of elegant dining in the stunning Fountain Restaurant, two nights of cabaret under the stars, three days of lounging on the beach, or at our bohemian beach bar AND three days of water-sports, sailing, squash, tennis, volleyball and aerobics during which we’ve booked you for a complimentary glass-bottom boat trip out to the magical coral gardens of the reef where you can swim or snorkel as you wish. Alternatively, if glass-bottom-boating doesn’t suit, then why not experience a guided tour of the magnificent 16th century UNESCO World Heritage site, Fort Jesus and learn all about Mombasa’s fascinatingly turbulent past?
It doesn’t get much better.
Except for the fact that we can promise you three restaurants, four bars, two pools, endless tropical gardens, a butterfly pavilion, a turtle preservation programme, the superb Maisha Mind Body and Spirit Spa and all that cosmopolitan Mombasa has to offer in terms of culture, nightlife and high-profile watersports.
So, why not let the train take the strain… take time out… and
… make time for yourself
