Serene Estate guest house is a contemporary retreat within the sleepy village of St Lucia. St Lucia lies on the border of the famous iSimangaliso Wetland Park with its excellent game-viewing, superb beaches at Cape Vidal and boat cruises on the lake. From here, it is also easy to visit the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve for a day on safari (only 40 minutes drive away.)
Serene Estate is ideal for lovers of modern architecture and they have strived to achieve the perfect balance between architecture and natural landscape. Serene Estate has a so-called Dutch design which is a mixture of minimalistic architecture and Nouvelles Formes with its characteristic bent lines.
The tranquil open layout of Serene Estate gives you direct access on three different levels to the rooms, lounge, breakfast room / big terrace with roof garden and fish pond. In the garden, there’s a good-sized rimflow swimming pool and martini deck. From the rooftop garden you can even see the ocean beyond the sand dunes.
