Lovely property with courteous staff. The view from the restaurant is also very scenic. Very peaceful & great place to unwind. We also went for a drive passing madhumalai forest & spotted quite a few animals on the road. The drive was really exciting but the only hitch is that you have to return before 6.00 pm as the gates... More

The Serai Bandipur is a good luxury property and a beautiful location. The pricing is expensive and its best to get a package with all meals because there is nothing around and you would anyways need to get all your meals at the resort. The rooms are big size with a separate living area and a huge bedroom. The bathrooms... More

The Serai is really a serene place in the jungle. I booked a 3N/4D stay. The place is in buffer zone of the forest & the major plus point is they have a 18 acre of land which is actually a part of the forest. They have a nature walk every morning & evening which is a must go option... More

Beautiful property. Huge, gorgeous rooms with a lovely sit-out and an equally nice bathroom. Great food. Very polite and attentive staff. There are a couple of other good resorts close by, including Wind flower, but only The Serai has an exclusive, unobstructed view of the Nilgiris, which under the right conditions looks very beautiful. The only downside is that from... More

Property is excellent and the food is very good. Every staff at the resort ensured that we feel at home during our stay at the resort. As there are fields nearby it would be good if bullock cart rides are organized

If one is seeking a peaceful, calm short weekend in the lap of nature - The Serai Bandipur is the place to be in. Pleasant drive from Bangalore to Bandipur, over 5.5hours drive straight into the gigantic Bandipur forest( last two miles are bit rough though).
