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.

Gaze upon the great outdoors and satisfy your tastebuds. Our restaurant and bar is situated on a highland for you to wine and dine in style.

"Serai Bandipur - An awesome experience !"
Serai Bandipur - happened to us by chance. We had actually booked another resort and had to check out in a rush as we did not like that place. Thank God, the signboards led us to Serai- Bandipur and made our family vacation a most memorable one.
The warm welcome at Serai, helpful and courteous staff made our stay worthwhile, not to forget the tasty food. Liquor options were limited but they had good options.
Kids loved the bicycle rides , play area and the time spent in the pool. The visiting herd of deers, chirping birds, parrots, rabbits kept us all excited about the jungle experience. 
Scenic view, peaceful atmosphere, the best quality of service, luxury cottages - we dint want to leave the place at all :-)
Next thing on the list is to visit other properties of Serai as well !

"Amazing Hospitality"
Had one of the best stays ever. The property is very well maintained and gives a luxurious feeling for the time you enter the gate.The walks, bullock cart ride were very interesting. My kid loved the bullock cart ride. It was a one of a kind experience. Never imagined that we would come all the way to Bandipur and have the bullock cart ride.
Food was great. The team took good care of my child. They went out of their way to make it special for us for our anniversary. 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 our family. Will come back for sure.
