Guest reviews
"Serai Kabini"
Very nice and relaxing place. Good to lie back on the hammock and watch the river smoothly flow by. Please don't miss out on the " Bird spotting " walk organised by the hotel in the early mornings. The river safari in the evening will visually delight you with flocks of river terns ( birds) putting up a show for you.... they follow the boat and dive into schools of fish which jump out of the water to escape them. What an exciting safari ! In addition, you get to see herds of elephants, bisons, jungle fowls, wild boars and if you are lucky, an occasional tiger or a leopard. The boat safari and the jeep safari organised by jungle lodges with experienced drivers and spotters leave you asking for more. The star lit sky at night is another story altogether which can be told on some other day
Would love to go back and learn more about the exotic birds and animals ... all within a 6 hour drive from bangalore! Enjoyed this one and will remain etched in memories for long - Stayed December 2016, travelled with family.

"Bright Spot"
Serai is a bright spot in an otherwise dry and lifeless forest. The resort just hit all the right spots - rooms, food, service and property itself; everything just works. The staff is well trained and it shows how the property is managed. The resort, since it is located in Bandipur, lacks any access to fauna except the plenty of bird species making property their home. The flora was limited too, though we loved exploring the same with their naturalist.
This was our first Serai property and we are so impressed that we are now inclined to choose the places based on Serai property locations. Kudos to the people running this property -Stayed February 2017, travelled as a couple.

"A beautiful island of serenity"
This Aman style property sits in the middle of a large coffee plantation in hectic Chikmagalur. The very eager staff will accompany guests on a walking tour of the coffee growing area to explain the coffee growing process and to see gorgeous vegetation, birds and fruit bats. The rooms are large and quiet and very well appointed, with every luxury bell and whistle. The food is very good, and the staff is extremely attentive. There is a daily yoga class and a beautiful pool, and a spa which offers excellent massages and other treatments. It is a great place to get away from the noise and chaos of Chikmagalur. - Stayed January 2017, travelled as a couple.
