Kigali Serena Hotel
2011 - Kigali, Rwanda

Kigali Serena Hotel

Symbion was appointed to design and oversee the construction of a new block of hotel suites over the health club and spa which at the lower level opens to the remodelled swimming pool area. This urbane piece or architecture also saw the adaptation of its existing all day dining facilities and a makeover of the reception all seamlessly woven together with the public lounges, bar and poolside bistro. The 2 pre-existing buildings now brought to the criteria of a modern hotel had comprised a 5-storey hotel and double storey conference centre. The 5 storey hotel was planned to have the pool bar and restaurant opening out to the garden swimming pool on the lower ground floor, the main hotel entrance and reception, atrium, guest rooms, lounge bar, a shop and Maisha health club on the upper ground floor, guest rooms on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors with the 4th holding the Presidential Suite.
