"Perfect destination if in Chikmanglur"
If you are in Chikamagalur, then you have to be at THE SERAI. Everything was just so perfect at this place. This place is owned by Cafe Coffee Day and the resort is surrounded by coffee plants and various trees and plants in acres of land. We had a pool villa which was very beautiful and i have to mention the hospitality of the staffs specially the chef was amazing, the chef personally asked us every single time for our meals and would make it to perfection which was simply very great. One can also hire bicycle or can learn archery at this place. Very nice experience for us and would definitely visit this place again.

I visited this resort in Chickmagalur in the last week of March. The check in was hassle free and very welcoming. We loved the room and of course the pool. As it was a festival that day we had to order Ala carte but again it was absolutely tasty. I would like to mention Mr Mohan at the odyssey restaurant. He was very friendly and made us feel totally at home. The two days we spent with my toddler were a Bliss and will surely come back. Only cons I felt were lack of group activity and if you have not taken the all meal included plan, the food is a bit on the expensive side. But the experience at Serai is worth every penny spent.
