We were 6 couples who has meticulously planned a trip to this resort, it was one of the best decisions I must say ! Besides the fact that having fun,in such a large group was inevitable, the resort itself had such a serene effect on all of us. The drive up to the resort uptil Bandipur Tiger Reserve is good,...

The Serai is, by a clear margin, the best place in Bandipur. The resort is spread over some 15 acres or so, rooms are well appointed and the common areas too are very well designed and built. While it is not inside the sanctuary, it is right on the edge of it so you will definitely see deer and elephant... More

Feel the Beautiful Jungle, the tension in the air, the slight fear of wildlife within you. Its an experience staying at The Serai Bandipur. Fantastic rooms, large bathrooms, great food, good activities and a wonderful jungle safari which should not be missed. While on the beautiful jungle safari one can see the elephants, deer, monkeys, wild buffaloes, leopards and the... More

We went on a long overdue family vacation to Serai for 2 nights and came back totally rejuvenated. The hospitality is unmatched, the food on all days was excellent and the total experience was amazing. The rooms were good and truly felt like home. If driving from Bangalore, leave early (6am or so). The weekend traffic on the Mysore road... More

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
