I stayed at The Serai Bandipur for a night... I wished I could have stayed there longer, but we were just passing through.. However, that short time was enough to experience great service, quality food and a highly knowledgeable naturalist. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed too, fantastic bed!

I took my family out for a quiet weekend in April 11-13, 2014 and had a wonderful experience at the Serai bandipur. The road from Bangalore via Mysore is good, save the 5 odd kilometers till the resort. We took courtyard superior rooms and the additional living room gives you the space of staying in a home outside your home.... More

Sooo.. I am quite new to trip advisor and usually don't upload my experiences online on a platform like this one. However, the experience that The Serai left me with had to be shared. I am so much in love with this gorgeous place. The Serai truly brings out the best of the destination. They define luxury. I took a... More

Spent a very fine and peaceful weekend at Serai. The rooms are clean, the staff are extremely courteous, helpful and friendly. Every member of the staff will not fail to wish you went they see you. It is a nice 5 to 6 hour drive from Bangalore. Only the last 2 km after the turn-off from Managala village is a... More

If you are planning a trip to the forest, Bandipur is your best bet and The Serai is the best in Bandipur. On a recent (Feb 2014) visit, my friend Shirl and I had a great day everyday at the Serai. Our best part? All of it. What stands out though is the well-informed naturalist Kuttappan. He has such respect... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our holiday at The Serai, Bandipur in mid February 2014! Mr. Sanjeev Kumar, the Operations Manager took personal care to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. A special word of praise for Mr. Shiva, the Head Chef, who did his best to serve us with a diverse range of cuisine of excellent standard... More

Having stayed in a fair number of places in similar price range, both in India and abroad, I have to say this place wasn't really worth it. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and were quite looking forward to a unique experience in the wilderness. We stayed in one of the log huts at the edge of the... More

This resort is stylish, the rooms are beautifully designed, and the service is excellent. Unusual for a trip to India, it is quiet and relaxing. The grounds are easy to stroll around, the pool and pool area are clean and nice, and the food was good. It is a bit out of the way, but if otherwise you're just in... More
