PJ from Visions of Africa joined an Ethos and Serena Hotels educational to Kenya and wrote this report on her trip.
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.
I was chatting to a chap recently who is trying to break into the UK market. He has been in the travel industry for over 20 years, but has limited experience of this market and like so many others believed this would be the easiest market to work in.
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.
In the last of our My Serena series I asked Alison if she had a favourite Serena Hotel and here's what she had to say: I don’t really have a favourite Serena – one should never have favourites …. others might get jealous!

Back down from the mountain slopes, crossing the equator and into the Great Rift Valley to the most recent addition to Serena’s portfolio - Lake Elmenteita Serena Camp – somewhere where even seasoned Operators, used to seeing stunning properties, were to be truly impressed.
At the end of last year Sue took a group of select tour operators out to Kenya to experience some of Serena Hotels renowned hospitality.
