Serene-estate Boutique Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2013

Friendly people, excellent food and 5 star accommodation. Unfortunately the wi-fi internet didn't connect but there was also a 2nd Wi-Fi available that I had to pay for online. There also was no bath plug. I must say I didn't complain at that stage but can be 100% sure they would have fix it.

I have visited the little village of St Lucia many times and have stayed in almost every accommodation but did not expect this level of luxury and surprising modernity. Wonderful avant garde architecture that is situated flush up against the bush that surprisingly does not clash but is a lovely contrast. Rooms are probably the most spacious I have encountered and very modern and minimalist but comfortable. Good, fast wireless is part of your stay. I suppose that folks expecting or preferring all-enveloping cushions-all-over comfort will not be too happy here but I loved the space and clean lines.
Breakfast was a treat on the upper deck with each table having a mini-buffet neatly set out. Scrumptious with beautifully prepared fruit and the usual alternatives, a great surprise was all the coffee shop options available from cappuccinos to espressos. Marvelous. I was just so surprised by this level of quality and service in St Lucia. A worthwhile addition to the long list of accommodations in the village. Great base to stay and enjoy the many and varied options available. Try it!

Room Tip: Try and get the Green Room. It is situated on the furthest end of the guest house and as they all op...

Exceptionally furnished and large rooms in a beautiful location. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was "looking good", but not the typical SA buffet or hot meal with eggs not according to order on both days we stayed there.
Will definitely stay there again, although it probably is the most expensive of all B&B's in town.

Lovely place. Great architecture and nice to chill out in a lounge that felt like home. Excellent breakfast that keeps one going until tea time. Also the host called us over to see a hippo 20m behind the house :-)

It was our Honeymoon (we come from Paris)

St Lucia is the perfect spot for such an occasion. We were off the Kruger Park and already experienced a luxury lodge safari theme style. So we wanted something different and found out Serene.

The place is absolutely fabulous, we had the gigantic Blue Room, all modern, the furniture are all made from great designers, the view on the pool and the park is astonished ! The bathroom is splendid, the bed great.

The atmosphere at the breakfast and the lounge is so particular, so smart and trendy (we loved the library)

The story of the building is unbelievable and congrats to our hosts (Olga&Hanz) for having achieved such a project.

The service was perfect with a very "delicate attention" to us, honeymooners.

One tiny tiny thing to improve: having somebody to carry the luggage on and off.

Thanks again for this stay we will remember all our life.

We originally planned on two nights but added a third because of the pleasant experience. Olga and Hans are gracious hosts and were very helpful is deciding what to do in the area and booking reservations.

Olga and Hans our great hosts at this very modern hotel with beautiful architecture and a lovely setting. The accommodation was very comfortable with views of the Indian Ocean. The bedroom was large and cool with an excellent ensuite. Breakfast was on the verandah overlooking the garden and fish pond and was delicious. Olga helped us to decide what to see during our short stay and then organised it as well - brilliant.
Well worth a visit.
