Guest Reviews
"Relaxing stay at the Serai!"
We stayed at The Serai for 3 nights and had a marvellous stay. Without doubt one of the favourite resorts I have stayed this year! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff and general manager. The staff was extremely friendly and the restaurant had an awesome buffet spread for all three meals including high tea. We are vegetarians and the buffet had an amazing choice of veg food. The villa that we stayed in was exceptional with its own private Jacuzzi. The property spread over 70 acres is absolutely peaceful and beautiful! We loved walking around and the weather was just perfect .
What stood out was the amazing staff that know the true value of customer service . Special mention to the general manager Mr. Piyush Pal who took utmost care to make sure our stay was comfortable. Kudos to the entire staff of the restaurant and Spa for making our stay enjoyable. This is a true sample of excellent hospitality.

"Relaxing stay"
Serai has always been a favourite, have visited all their properties multiple times and this was my second time in chikmanglur. The hotel staff was very accommodating to all our requests . This short break for us was mostly to relax as we were travelling with two kids both less than 5 years of age. Rooms were good and spacious. Restaurant mostly served set menu due to less occupancy which was good in a way to avoid food wastage. They took special care and provided a wonderful candlelight dinner.
Overall , Serai never stops to amaze me with the experience. Will definitely plan a trip soon to one of their other properties.
