Kampala Serena celebrates 10 years

By Kagga Admin | January 2, 2017

The saying that time flies once again proved right when the Kampala Serena Hotel last evening celebrated their 10th anniversary after completing the reconstruction of what in the old days was the Nile Hotel International.

Due to contractual obligations to host several key conferences for the government of Uganda at the adjoining International Conference Centre, Serena Hotels, after taking over the property, continued to operate the hotel for more than a year. Only then was the former Nile Hotel closed down completely to allow for a near-total reconstruction before re-opening as the Kampala Serena Hotel in 2006.

The phrase ‘Phoenix rising from the building rubble‘ comes to mind when looking back at those days, which saw the Kampala Serena Hotel then swiftly top the rankings as the best hotel in the city, reaffirmed when two years later becoming a member of ‘Leading Hotels of the World ‘, to date still the only such property in Uganda affiliated to this much sought after group.

Consistently high occupancy rates kept filling the 152 rooms and suites the Kampala Serena Hotel was operating with and after ten years was the time right to launch the first phase of an existing expansion plan which will see a further 38 rooms including a second Presidential Suite added, among other facilities as described in an earlier article.
