Tourism Promotion Services – Pakistan (TPS), a subsidiary company of the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED), owns and manages eight hotels across Pakistan of which Islamabad Serena Hotel is the flagship property.
AKFED seeks to develop tourism potential in selected areas in the developing world, by building, rehabilitating and managing hotels and lodges that contribute to economic growth and positively impact the overall investment climate in an environmental and culturally sensitive manner.
Since its inception, Serena has stressed cultural and environmental sensitivity, for which it has received global recognition through a number of awards.
