Guest Reviews
"Relax in the lap of Nature"
The Serai is an ideal place for relaxation. Situated in the Bandipur National Park there is natural beauty and a lot of flora and fauna. The Resort staff are courteous and the rooms are spacious and clean. There are activities like cycling and a Nature walk within the resort apart from a lot of other games. Overall, a nice place to unwind away from the Hustle N Bustle of city life.

"Great Family Holiday"
Excellent and amazing are two final words. One of our best holiday. Our booking was easy, the pre-information shared was thorough, the follow-up done by Sannidhi a day before we reached Serai was courteous and welcoming. Our questions were handled promptly and thoroughly. Once we reached there, check in was a breeze. Everything worked like clockwork till we settled in the room. The house keeping staff surprised us with their simple, elegant decoration wishing us and it was the genius of the front office staff that made us settle down immediately and made us elated on the choice made.

"Weekend getaway"
Hi Serai,

Kabini is one of our most favourite weekend getaway destination and In Kabini it’s Serai which attracts us the most. Serai is really close to our heart coz of its mesmerising and relaxing scenic view it offers, tastefully designed villas and ofcourse the warm and hospitable staff. Serai is like home away form home!! 

I would like to thank Serai for making one more family outing a memorable family moment. My special thanks to Mr. Devaiah, Salim and Chama.

Hoping to come back soooon...
