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...

We had two nights here and its a perfect place to stay in an interesting town. Our large room was on the ground floor with a little patio area that opened up on to the very nice pool area. Beyond that was the open gardens that were visited by small animals such as deer and for Europeans at least entertaining...

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday a week ago, and it was perfect! We love St Lucia, and Serene Estate made us love it even more! They have absolutely everything you might need! Will definitely come back!

Stayed in the Red Garden Room Staying in a garden room enabled us to get in and out (and get our luggage into the room) via the garden gate rather than dragging up and down a large number of stairs. The room was large and functional with a full wall of glass with doors onto a terrace overlooking the pool...

My wife and I stayed there middle of January 2015 for nine days. What made us booking the Serene was the modern architectural style of the building, the superb location at the outskirts of St Lucia boundering the bush and of course the excellent comments on the Internet. We can only underline the reviews of so many guests before. There...

Serene Estate is a very nice, tastefully designed building with Bauhaus influences and high quality workmanship. It has a bright airy and clean feel to it, which nicely blends into the African surroundings. The owners are clearly proud of it, and the facilities live up to their promises. On the hospitality side of things, the experience is probably a matter...

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here for 2 nights. The house is very modern and a totally different experience to staying in most other guests houses. It is more like a boutique hotel with large bedrooms. Olga and her team are all very helpful. Breakfast is beautifully served on the terrace with an extensive choice to start the day. A very...

Excellent service, beautiful room. Thanks to Olga, Hans, Elaine and Janet. Special thanks to Elaine who helped us with plans for our trip to Drakensberg. We loved everything at Serene-estate, can't find anything that we were disappointed with.
