Omã massages and wraps leave feeling much more alive than before. Therapies made from the purest botanical extracts soothe, relax, invigorate, and draw the tension out of each muscle, ever so slowly. Swedish or Ayurvedic or Reflexology - they combine under trained fingers to ease the toxins right out of your body. Food is amazing Even buffet is personalised !!!

I don't know where to start! Had the best time ever at Chikmagalur. Being at The Serai just made it better for my family and me. From handling the reservation to the welcome, the food, the services to the smiles and enthusiasm.. soo impeccable and wonderful. Loved it! Thank you so much for making this so beautiful and special.

An absolutely Amazing place to be at. A great location, amazing food, fantastic accommodation, What more can one ask for? Been here with my family and was pampered all through our stay. Everything that we could think of was taken care of without even being asked for. World Class, I must say!

This is a place that can be so much more, it has a great location, good food, nicely planned spacious rooms going for it. It fails in the details, as the new age proverb goes..buying a property is difficult but maintaining it is impossible. The lighting,tables, chairs,tiles all need maintenance. It's as if the maintenance contractor has not been paid... More

This is definitely, not value for money. For what they charge, a basic service standard is expected which is completely missing.Its a pretty place, the coffee plantation is nice, a lot of money has been spent on the resort but it needs to be outsourced to another management, who understand service and hospitality to make it worth visiting. Not worth... More

An outstanding property in the middle of a coffee plantation. No feature war spared for the villas and for the main house. Ideally located to visit the temples at Belur and Halebid. Top luxury at its best. All brand new. However, lacking personality to make it a charming experience.

Well, .. Well! Ask them to check & recheck your room before they allocate it to you. If you are going in summer ask them to ensure the AC is working and hot water is coming - if you intend to use it. Otherwise, its a great place. Rooms (Villas) are with private pools with one central public pool. Live... More
