Drove to this beautiful resort from Bangalore which took about 4 hours. The check in was smooth though it's not an ideal front desk one would come across in any star resort. The resort has employed mostly local staff with some from other states who are very polite & helpful. We stayed in the Residence (there are only two of them) which had plenty of space to move around with a balcony which gave a splendid view of the forest. The room was clean & housekeeping staff was immediate to respond when there was a small water leak from the roof. It has some indoor games, a pool which was mostly cold but still saw some people enthusiastically using it. There are bicycles to move around within the resort. There's a small gym if you want to continue your fitness regime. Did not use the spa so cannot comment. The resort can arrange the safari conducted by the local forest department with pick up & drop facilities. It has only one restaurant which serves good food but need to improve on the table arrangement for bigger groups. This is an ideal get away to rejuvenate & some quality time can be spent in the middle of nature with your loved ones. Highly recommended.

"An awesome luxury escapade"
Had been to Serai chikmagalur last week, we were a team of 40 people and each and everyone of the member loved the place. The property is well maintained, very co-operative staff and good food. Mr.Pramod helped us get through the check-in process very smoothly. The resort is very well maintained.The off site trip was very memorable to all of us. All I would say is keep up the good work.

"Great location for nature lovers"
This property is located near a national Tiger preserve and offers a free 3-hour safari to guests. Excellent staff, cool location and a fun place to "turn off your jets" and disconnect from the world. I spent 3 days/nights here and enjoyed every aspect of this resort. If you are looking for a clean, authentic, India stay...take the drive from Bangalore and enjoy peace and serenity.
