Guest Reviews
"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.

We chose this for a corporate ceremony including stay of members.
The location is serene, away from chaos of city. Delighted with the service of the staff and arrangements made for presentation.Great ambience with view for dinner. Very satisfied with this.
Did not get any complaints from our members regarding room stay. It was a success.

 I would highly recommend them for a unique experience for vacation or corporate gathering.

"Very relaxing holiday experience"
The resort is very well-kempt and the location is amazing. The facilities provided are apt. A few more buggies need to be operational is a suggestion. A big shout-out needs to go to the entire staff of the resort. They are very cortious and hospitable. When we got drenched in a rain storm during our boating safari, the staff came to the loaction of the boat pier before we arrived with fresh towels and on reaching the resort, we were provided hot beverages and the wet clothes were launderied for no additional cost. This gesture is well appreciated. 

The room service was very quick and the food taste and quality is amazing. The resport is kid friendly. the rooms are well appointed as well. 

Overall experience was better than expected. Thank you resort staff and management. This place is highly recommended
