Built seamlessly into the forests around, we reserve half our land for the wild. For the shy deer that peer through your window, for the wild squirrels that dart by, the astounding birds who swoop around and for the elephants that call from a far.

Choose between sprawling mountain courtyard views, rustic log huts and our premium residences surrounded by the lush greenery of the Western Ghats.

Mountain View Courtyard

The mountain view courtyard is your perfect settlement with a little garden at the front as well as a verandah with a view at the back. Wooden or stone-tiled floors, wood-beamed ceilings, large glass french windows, a large, luxuriously appointed bathing area - and the softest of beds to sink into after a trek in the jungles around.

Mountain View Courtyard Superior

The corner courtyards boast an extra living room along with a bedroom, a garden and a verandah. This living room attached to the bedroom has floor to ceiling glass windows, and it is common to find deer on the other side, peering up at you.

Mountain View Log Hut

A quaint log hut raised on stilts and fully wood-panelled inside, this is a memory to cherish for a long time after your holiday is over. In addition to the usual amenities like a cosy bedroom and large bathing areas, the Mountain View Log Hut also has a well-stocked Mini Bar. Its very own back verandah is wood-beamed and perfect to sit and look at the blue hills beyond the dense forests and for the various birds that drop by.

The Residence

Tastefully crafted and carefully designed, it is just the right mix of privacy and pleasure. The Residence has a vast living room cum bedroom, with separate bathing and dressing areas and an additional outdoor bathing area. You can find a quiet sit-out at the back and a flight of stairs at the front which leads you to a terrace with a sensational view of the forest and hills, and even a massive day-bed to sink into.

"Amazing Hospitality"

Had one of the best stays ever. 
Food was great. Team took care of my child. The team went out of their way to make our anniversary special. The surprise private dinner planned for us left us amazed with the hospitality. I totally recommend Serai to everyone and the pictures we took is already making rounds in the family. Will come back for sure.

"Amazing resort with excellent service and hospitality" 

We had one of the best stays ever. The property is very well maintained with excellent greenery all around the area. The early morning walks were very interesting and refreshing with a variety of birds to look at. The nature walk was very educative and the naturalist was very knowledgeable and highly passionate. The food was great.
