"Perfect Holiday for Family"
We wanted to have perfect holiday for family, me, my wife and our son. The Serai is the just right place. Very nice, elegant, clean and big room, with swimming pool attached to room. Nice amenities, bathroom was having bath tub, and shower also. The people were very courteous, Mr. Pramod, Ms. Sunnidhi at reception desk, and Restaurant Manager and all staff were excellent.

"Beautiful resort spread across acres of serene coffee plantation."
We stayed in a villa with a private open air Jacuzzi and thoroughly enjoyed the bubble bath, especially my son. The room was very spacious with a beautiful view and a charming French window. Bathroom was huge with a nice bathtub, There was an open air shower too !

Stayed for 2 nights and I celebrated my birthday there. The manager arranged for a private dining in a hut with a beautiful setup lit by candles. It was one of my most memorable birthday for sure ...very romantic ..

There was no buffet for lunch and dinner but the food was fresh, tasty and authentic.The chef came to our table and asked about our preferences and suggested a few local items. Neer dosa with mutton curry was yum!! Service was good and quick.

There is a gaming area where my son loved to spend time and there was a staff to play with him which was great, as I could go and enjoy message at the SPA. It was not very big SPA with limited choice, but the masseuse was good and polite.

The resort arranges for a coffee plantation walk in the evening which we all loved as we are nature enthusiast . There were lots of different plantation and the person who took us around was very knowledgeable.

There are quite a few places to see around the resort like muliyangiri (highest peak of Karnataka), baba-budangiri, buttermilk fall etc. Also one can shop for 100% pure coffee and locally grown spices. 

The place is very serene and amidst nature. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed thoroughly. The villas are expensive but I found it to be worth. Next time I will try the villa with the private pool !

Overall loved the stay, will be back again next year.
