It’s one of the highly-rated hotels in Nairobi. It’s is located along Mombasa rd some 30 minutes from Nairobi CBD. A cab costs about kes 700. If you plan on dining there, you know you will break the bank. Is it worth it? To some extent yes. I took my partner there for a date and it was a good bad experience. First, you need to make a reservation beforehand in some cases. Then, considering the traffic on Mombasa rd, it is advisable to make an hour or two allowances to the reservation time. We got there an hour before sunset(always chasing the sunset). The reception was good. The doorman showed us to the restaurant. We decided to sit at the terrace which is stunning by the way. It took some time to be served and even longer to get the food. We decided to have cocktails and watch the sunset. That was the highlight of the experience. It’s a beautiful place but they can improve in some sectors.

Ole Sereni is a premium wildlife resort strategically located just off Mombasa road overlooking Nairobi National Game Park. I went here on a late night dinner date with very high expectations seeing as it is a five-star hotel and I was severely underwhelmed. We’d made reservations for 7pm but due to the crazy traffic from where we were coming from added on to Mombasa road traffic, we ended up getting there at 11pm. So I would suggest if you’re looking to dine in, you make a 2-hour allowance for travel time just in case. On arrival, there was absolutely no one at the reception save for the guard at the entrance. You can easily get lost navigating your way around as the staff seemed quite unbothered about the guests coming in. When we eventually got to our table, the waitress that approached said that the dinner menu was not operational beyond 11pm hence we had to order from the breakfast menu. The wait was ridiculously long for a table for two, we waited for one and a half hours. As it turned out, the wait was immaterial as the disappointment that hit us when our plates were finally brought to the table was profound. The portions were extremely small, keep in mind that this was a breakfast menu and therefore we were basically having sandwiches. They felt stale and absolutely not our money’s worth. I would not go back even if there was instant service. The view of the park which is one of their selling points in their advertisement is currently blocked by the new road therefore a good dining view is not something they can boast about anymore. Overall, I think hotels that are not star rated would be better choices. So save yourself two hours of waiting for food and explore other options. For a 5-star hotel, this is arguably one of the worst dates I’ve been on.

This is a great place to be, especially for holidays. The place is located at a very conducive environment which induces the relaxation effect. The food is just so delicious, and I loved the way they prepare their chicken, with both tradition and professionalism twisted to fit your perfect taste. I highly recommend anyone that Emara Hotel Ole Sereni is the place of your dreams, a place to always be.
