Kigali Serena Hotel


Five-star elegance is offered at this international hotel located in the heart of the Rwandan capital’s ambassadorial and commercial area.

With a choice of luxury rooms and suites it is the ideal place to begin or finish a visit to this magical country of lakes, volcanoes and the glorious Mountain Gorilla. Guests can relax on the wide sundeck adjacent to the pool, at the Maisha Health Club, or take a stroll along one of Kigali’s wide and attractive boulevards.


Our Thoughts

The capital city’s best hotel, with an excellent fitness centre and outdoor pool. Kigali is a very safe city and the Serena is a only short stroll along wide boulevards from some excellent restaurants and bars, so the advice is to get out and explore the neighbourhood.

  • A choice of restaurants
  • The Executive Lounge and Bar
  • Swimming pool, pool deck and gardens
  • The Maisha Health Club and Spa
  • Gift Shop, news-stand and travel requisites kiosk

There are numerous bars and restaurants to tuck into at Kigali Serena Hotel. The Milima Restaurant serves a buffet breakfast and also lunch and serves as a dinner option. The Sokoni Restaruant is the place to be for Sunday lunch. The bars are great for a pre dinner drink, or a nap cap before bed.
