We were there to celebrate our 10th anniversary...and i was taken aback with the beautiful arrangements done by Kishore , Nikson and team..on the D day...a lovely private dinner organized for us ...wonderful service at our disposal by Nitesh . The chef personally checked every now and then on the quality of food served ... amazing experience ...fabulous service!

One of the best in Kabini. Cant compare with Serai Chikmagalur comfort but since Kabini is a forest property you cant expect that as well. Well behaved staff and good food. Safari isnt organized free like JLR but they have an understanding with them and will take if you pay extra

Place - 4.5/5 Service - 5/5 Food - 4.8/5 Activities - 4/5 We were a big family of 8 including a 2 yr old. The property is very nice and spaced out (though not as luxurious as the other serai resorts). The rooms could have been bigger, there's no TV or internet to get the feel of the woods. Get... More

This property is quite average with respect to the other Serai properties, Bandipur and chikmaglur. Rooms are much smaller. Bathrooms too are smaller. The toiletries like dental kit and shaving kit is not kept be default, you have to ask for it. Food is also not that great. SO i would rate it average for food taste and variety. Staff... More

I had no other option but to book Serai when no other place was available on a long weekend holiday to cater to my daughter's demand for a weekend getaway. The rooms , facilities , dining area are spread across their huge campus and is like any other expensive facility. Not a bad deal if you have lots of money... More

Arrived in the afternoon driving straight from Bangalore over a weekend in Feb'15. + The check-in process was very quick with the friendly staff. They also explained various safari options available and helped us choose what we were interested in. + This resort is on the banks of the Kabini river and our cottage was facing it. Very serene atmosphere.... More

Stayed in May 2015 for a weekend. The place and overall ambience is great. There are a lot of activities in the resort itself to do and plenty of green open spaces. Also used the spa and boating option along with the safari which was all well organized. The staff is friendly and professional. The rooms/cottages are quite well done... More

Honest opinion- place is good. Food is average, exorbitant prices. No WIFI or tv in the room. No activities whatsoever citing weather as an excuse, though it was an occasional drizzle. And I could see motor boats from other resorts in the river. No coracle, no kayaking, no bonfire. Not even a trek. Cycles were old and in a bad... More
