Guest Reviews
I really loved Serai Kabini. Serene location, comfortable rooms. Super nice staff. Resort Manager Brian, Marilyn and Shiv made us super comfortable. They gave us a property brief and helped us with anything we need. I visited this place twice in three months! It's the best getaway from Bangalore.

"Anniversary Celebration"
The Serai at Kabini is a place one has to visit and experience it to understand it. Beautifully designed villa and strategically placed to overlook the river .. waking up to birds chirping and absolute privacy with no disturbance.. above all the best USP of this place are the management team from the moment you check in till check out .. the staff is in full control to ensure your needs & demands are met and on time. Everybody seems to have a smile on their face which makes it such a pleasure .. hence 5 star to the whole team at The Serai - Kabini.. special mention to “ puttashetty” one of the steward who was on constant look out and offering us his best standards in customer service. And Pramod the manager who had ensured all was in place. Three cheers to The Serai and our next destination with The Serai will be at Chikkamagalur.

"Peaceful and hospitable"
Excellent room with own decked patio area overlooking the water. Rooms are comfortable and well-equipped with everything you need. Spa available should you feel the need. The restaurant was excellent with a wide variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food available; staff offered to make individual items that weren't on the buffet. Afternoon tea on the lawn included and communal meeting at the evening bonfire should you wish to join. Play area for the children. Wildlife film showing in the evening. Very knowledgeable staff on the wildlife trips both by jeep and boat. Lots to do. Super helpful staff in every area around the resort.
