The Serai Resorts began as an invitation to explore the lands of coffee in Chikmagalur, about a decade ago. Over time, we extended it to visit other such inspiring places in Karnataka.

Bandipur stood out for its charm and Kabini for its serenity. Our similarities with Barefoot at Havelock in the exquisite Andaman Islands united us. The rest, as they say, is history.

Almost 150 years of growing coffee makes us, you’ll agree, an expert.

Coffee, as many of us know, was introduced by the British in the cooler climes of India. We imbibed this refreshing tradition when we incorporated Coffee Day Global Limited in 1993. Soon after, we opened our first cafe in Bengaluru in 1996.

Ours was a new vision – one where coffee was more than just any beverage. It was a cup that brought coffee aficionados, budding coffee drinkers, and well, friends together over a cup of freshly brewed coffee.

Today, our subsidiary Coffee Day Global Limited has established the largest footprint of cafe outlets across India – in more than 200 cities. Apart from an Indian presence, we have spread our cafes across Austria and The Czech Republic. Officially, we are Cafe Coffee Day. To our biggest customers—our young fan base— we’re simply CCD. Our forays into diverse businesses are marked by the same passion and thinking with which we started Cafe Coffee Day.
