Our Company

The Goa Experience is part of Serenity Holidays, a privately owned, independent holiday company also offering a number of other destinations, including The Gambia, Cape Verde, Corsica and Sardinia.

Serenity Holidays was set up in the late 1980’s by Stephen & Sandra Wilde and initially offered just flights and holidays to The Gambia in West Africa. The Gambia continued to be the main area of specialism for Serenity until 2003 with the acquisition of Sussex based tour operator, Holiday Places. This then added a range of European destinations to the company, including mainland France and the island of Corsica.

In recent years a mix of further acquisitions and organic growth has seen the introduction of Cape Verde, Senegal, Sardinia, Sicily and for 2015 we were delighted add Goa to the Serenity Holidays portfolio.

All of our specialist holidays offer excellent value and choice. We are an independent company where emphasis is very much on quality and service.

Today Serenity Holidays employs around 60 staff in the UK at our offices in Fareham, Hampshire. Whilst we are still independently owned, Stephen and Sandra have stepped back from the day to day running of the company. Our Managing Director, Chris Rowles, now oversees the daily operation of the business in the UK and in our overseas areas.

In the autumn of 2007, Serenity Holidays success was recognised by the Travel Trade Gazette being voted Travel Company of the Year for 2007. A couple of months later we were recognised as the runner up in Sunday Times Travel Magazine “Best Tour Operator” awards.
