Support & Vote for Inspiring Leadership | Serena Hotels as World’s Leading Hotel Brand – World Travel Awards

Ismailimail highlights the second of 4 posts today, seeking support from our readers to vote for some inspiring people and organization as they continue in their quest for excellence and making a difference.

Presenting Serena Hotels & Resorts:

The Serena selection of resorts, safari lodges and hotels spans some of the most evocative, exotic and enchanting destinations in the world. One of the most important goals of Serena is to realise the tourism potential in an environmentally sensitive manner while enhancing the economic viability of the communities that it is present in.

The Serena Group comprises a collection of 32 luxury resorts, safari lodges and hotels, which are located in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda and Mozambique) and Asia (Pakistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan). Many of these hotels make up the list of the Leading Hotels of the World. All Serena properties are styled so as to compliment the landscape, nurture the environment and celebrate the rich tapestry of local culture.

Since tourism is about people, and Serena believes in introducing their visitors to the real character of their hosts. Both East Africa and southern Asia offer unusually complex and colourful ethic tapestries, featuring a charismatic mix of peoples ranging from the scarlet-cloaked Maasai, to the vibrant Baluch people of southeast Pakistan. This heritage is, however, fragile; and in order that it may be both preserved and nurtured for the future, Serena believes that the benefits of tourism must be shared with the local community.

The Serena service profile guarantees unprecedented luxury, extensive amenities and unrivaled warmth of personal attention.

Below, Ismailimail is excited to share some of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives of the various Serena Hotels and the various awards the hotels have received in the past.

The WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS (WTA) is considered the “Oscar Awards” of the Travel Industry. The WTA brand is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire … Winning these categories would catapult the Serena brand of Hotels and Resorts to the global forefront, boost tourism in the various countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.



We would be lying if we said we are not ecstatic about this news because it’s a pretty big deal. And this is why:

Vote for Serena Hotels: 2014 World Travel Awards NomineeThe WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS (WTA) is considered the “Oscar Awards” of the Travel Industry. The WTA brand is recognized globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.

In 2014, WTA celebrates its historic 21st anniversary and the Grand Tour sees WTA stage gala ceremonies in the Middle East, Africa & the Indian Ocean, South & Central America, North America & the Caribbean, Asia & Australia, and Europe.

All regional winners then compete head to head in a final round of voting to decide who will triumph in WTA’s world awards – the ultimate accolade in the travel and tourism industry. The winners are announced on the night of the WTA Grand Final at the end of the year. So even better that the nomination, would be us taking that award home and we cannot do it without your vote.

Winning these categories would catapult the Serena brand of Hotels and Resorts to the global forefront, boost tourism in the various countries including Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan.
