It is also where you will find Paul Mwaura, Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp's 35 year old Head Chef, and having tasted his amazing food we wanted to find out more about the man.
PJ from Visions of Africa joined an Ethos and Serena Hotels educational to Kenya and wrote this report on her trip.
"Travel brat" that I am - I am very lucky to have travelled on The Blue Train three times! And each time it has exceeded my every expectation.
Ethos has deliberated a lot over the last few years about the benefits of individual properties exhibiting at consumer shows. How do you track the success of such shows and how do you determine which ones to do?
Meet Lewis and Margaret Small a retired couple from Wales, who just can’t seem to get enough of Kenya and Serena Hotels. They simply keep coming back.
On hearing I would be taking a small group of journalists to South Africa for a week … I was torn. Torn between being totally excited to be staying in some of the country’s top boutique hotels or the simple pleasure of getting a rare full night’s sleep. As mum to 3 boys (including 2 year old twins!) a full night’s sleep sounded like a major highlight.
World Travel Market is over for another year and as always the official figures say that numbers of attendees are up again this year.
Ethos Marketing continues to look for new and innovative ways of how to promote our clients products to the UK travel industry. A one-on-one meeting is always useful, but in order to get to a slightly wider audience in limited time we sometimes arrange special events.
The debate continues that the SAT stats are not accurate, is valid, but not new. I remember attending a conference in Johannesburg in 1994 when this subject was discussed in detail and a speaker from the Caribbean explained that people visiting more than one island would be counted more than once – a similar problem to the one we have always had in South Africa.
In addition to day-to-day sales, marketing and PR activity that we carry out for our clients, Ethos Marketing also arranges educationals. Our most recent educational was to visit some of the Serena properties in Kenya.
