World Travel Awards 2015 — At the just concluded Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony, Kampala Serena Hotel was once again recognized out of five nominees as the overall winner of Uganda’s Leading Hotels’ category of the 2015 World Travel Awards.

Established in 1993 to recognize and reward outstanding achievements within the global travel industry, the World Travel Awards™ is the most prestigious, comprehensive and sought after awards programme in the global travel and tourism industry and so to be voted a World Travel Award™ winner for four years running is an accolade we are very PROUD of as a market leader in hotel services in Uganda.

Also taking home prizes were our sister properties; Lake Victoria Serena Resort for Uganda’s Leading Suite, Nairobi Serena Hotel for Kenya’s Leading Hotel 2015 and Kigali Serena Hotel for Rwanda’s Leading Hotel 2015.


The winners at the World Travel Awards (WTA) Africa & Indian Ocean 2015 were unveiled at the Kempsinki Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare in a ceremony hosted by the former Miss Seychelles, Sherlyn Furneau and Presenter Galen Bresson.

The Seychelles Minister of Tourism & Culture Alain St Ange in his speech told the travel industry that it was time for Africa to stand together and be counted despite all the challenges that were facing the sector.

He also said that Africa’s rich tourism products remain the world’s admiration but regrettably, the continent was only able to net close to 5% of the travelers globally and so challenged the industry to showcase their best destinations.

While also urging the tourism stakeholders across the continent to work together in growing tourism business, the Kenyan Commerce and Tourism Principal Secretary Dr Ibrahim Mohammed added that Africa is our next frontier and this is the time for us as a continent to leverage on each other’s strength, synergize on our varied expertise for the betterment of the sector.

He concluded by noting that “the hospitality industry has to keep pace with the changing needs of clientele and therefore a need for constant improvement of product and services”
