I was in charge of arranging a marketing conclave and we decided to go to bandipur due to the proximity to bangalore. 25 of us stayed here for 2 nights, we had most of the property to ourselves. The property is beautiful, serene & quiet. The villas are gorgeous with whitewashed compounds lit with bright pink bougainvilleas which added to... More

The staff are very friendly the food is good. On safari we saw very little the first time and a tiger and sloth bear the second time.... More

We started late from home, we had to drive fast to cross the 9:00PM closing time of Bandipur Forest Gate. From the gate the resort is around 12.5-13 kms. The place is great. It is in the buffer zone of the forest, so one gets the experience of being in the jungle, but in luxury. We stayed in a Mountain... More

We were 4 couples with children who visited The Serai Bandipur in Jan 2016. The cottages we stayed in were excellent....Gave us a good luxury feel overall. The resort itself is placed quite inside and gives us a good feel of being far away from hustle and bustle. The facilities in the report are decent. You even have archery which... More

We spent a weekend at the Serai Bandipur and had a relaxing time. We booked the cottage with patio facing the forest. It offered great view of deers grazing in the morning. The cottage was beautiful and our stay luxurious. However they had only one restaurant and breakfast spread was minimal, the service rather casual. The room service also took... More

Hello, I stayed in this resort for 3 days in November 2015. The resort is very good with its wildlife style greenery spread throughout the resort acre. One thing not good is the road reaching this resort from Bandipur main road, we took a shortcut and road was pathetic, however my suv managed. The service here is awesome, i had... More

Yes! this is actually quite far from human civilization...adjoint to the national forest. Roads are quite difficult ..so if you have a car with low ground clearance...be careful. SUVs are better. Stay is good. It has class. You can hear wild animals at night.. Food is good...liked this place.

Had stayed there in the month of October 2015. Right from our arrival the hospitality has been spot on. Rooms are spacious and very well maintained. Food is awesome. The Staff is very courteous. It is a PURE LUXURY in the lap of NATURE away from the buzz. Over all a 5+ Star experience.
