We visited just before the peak season started in December 2014. We were a large family group and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. There was something for all age groups from 6 yrs of age to 70. The hotel was about 70% full at this time and hence it felt like we had the place almost to ourselves except for... More

The entire staff from front office to housekeeping to restaurant is waiting in their attire to welcome the guest with a warm SMILE. The restaurant staff is ready to serve the most customized food though the spread at the restaurant can definitely improve. Coffee day Cappuccino is missing in the premises. The layout is cozy and a good fit for... More

We had two nights here and they were just brilliant - beautiful surroundings, great staff, lovely room with a private balcony to survey the birds, excellent food, brilliant naturalist who took us bird-watching, and lovely guests there to enjoy the peace and quiet.

We stayed at the Serai Bandipur in December 2014 for 3 nights. It was easily one of the best vacations we have ever had. The property, service, facilities, hygiene, music and the food were all vying for the top spot. Such luxury, so close to nature. You can sit on the terrace of The Residence and do nothing for hours... More
