We stayed in St. Lucia for one evening and chose the Serene-estate Guesthouse. We were definitely not disappointed in our stay. The house itself is quite different from anything around St. Lucia and we loved it for it. The rooms were massive with a great bathroom. Our room opened up to the back area where there was a fantastic looking...

We were fortunate enough to be able to get a last minute booking for Serene estate guest house when we decided impulsively to go up to St Lucia to visit our daughter. It looked on the website as if it could be the nicest place to stay in St Lucia and it probably is. To start with the stunning modern...

St Lucia has a very poor selection of accommodation and we found ourselves at sunset looking for somewhere to stay. Preferring the more traditional African atmosphere I was a bit sceptical about trying Serene with its modern Bauhaus inspired design. What a surprise. Hanne at receptoon was very friendly and welcoming and the accommodation was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the...

We had a 4 night stay at Serene-estate in St Lucia as part of a 3 week tour around KZN. We stayed in the garden room at the front of the building, which was contemporary/ functional and spacious (and we weren't travelling lightly) with plenty of hanging and cupboard space. Wi-fi also available in the room. The property has a...

We travel extensively internationally and locally and we can honestly say that Serene Estate is one of the best we have ever stayed in from the email communication to the welcome, to the esceptional rooms, to the world class brekfast and service, what a surprise. Topped off by excellent games drives, sightings of more than 30 species, night drive and...

Wish we could have stayed longer here! Rooms were huge with great views of the pool and backyard - watch out for hippos. Breakfast room and common areas had really cool decor and the staff was very friendly. Serene is by far the nicest guesthouse in the area, it has a great modern feel.

We stayed for 3 nights. This was most certainly one of the most serene places we stayed at during our 5 weeks trip through SA. St Lucia is a place we will never forget and is highly recommendable for travelers through SA. Isimangaliso wetlands park, turtle tour, crocodiles, hippo's in the streets at night (scary but magnificent at the same...
