My trip to serai was beautiful. The place is as good as u see in the web site. The villa is really nice and cozy. The private pool makes it even better. A perfect getaway for couples. The estate is really amazing and must visit if you can afford the price

Amazing getaway... romantic place. Very courteous staff. Spent 2N there. I went in the middle of rainy season and it was raining most of the time. Hotel has golf carts to pick and drop you anywhere in the property at any time so rains were not a problem. Food was also great in every meal. The property is owned and... More

Stopped for dinner after a long day's travel with a business associate. Nothing to write about the food but the scenic views from the resort are awesome. The bar had only kingfisher and Budweiser on the menu. As a beer lover I expect much more from a supposedly famous resort. The bar snacks were pretty ordinary. Coming to the food... More

A sprawling property with a view of the hills and a neatly manicured landscape all around, The Serai tries very hard to scream luxury in everything it does. The rooms are large and well designed. The two large glass walls allow for good light, but the walled encasing around each room allows for an average view of the rains and... More

The Serai is a a good weekend getaway resort from bangalore. Best suited for both corporate events and family holidays. Views are excellent and nicely maintained property. Good food and very humble staff. Was here on couple of occasions although very short trip, it was very rejuvenating.

The service and hospitality is very good.The rooms with a private plunge pool are amazing and the bathrooms are gorgeous (haven't seen a better one than this). The resort is built in the middle of a coffee estate and is... More

The property is very beautiful and set in a large area. The 30 odd rooms are all huddled together along a central pathway, but yet quite private - nice design. The rooms are large and most of them come with a decent sized private pool. You can easily spend 2-3 days just within the property with enough stuff to do.... More
