The entrance of the hotel is just grand. the rooms are very well ventilated and big windows to enjoy the scenery around. However the landscaping of the place was quiet disappointing. The overall appearance is very dry. They could have done a much better job with the resources available. The food was good and the service is also pretty good.... More

I stayed in the Villa with pool with my family (wife and 13 year old son). I had only 1 night at my disposal, but the property website and tele booking had only minimum 2 night packages. I was lucky to get a 1 night deal through one of the travel websites. Check in process was smooth and welcome was... More

We visited the Serai from Jan 13 to Jan 16. Located in a coffee plantation, this place personifies luxury, peace and tranquility. We stayed in a private pool villa. The room is massively spacious with a huge bathroom. The private pool is a bit small to what it looks in the pictures but nonetheless good. The food needs a special... More

Generally I do not give any reviews but the terrible experience that I had with the booking staff at Bangalore office made me to write this review to alert others who plan to book through them. I directly called The Serai office located in Bangalore and booked a 2 nights/3 days package for 9th January check-in and 11th January check-out.... More

The Serai Chikmaglur is a beautiful resort set in the heart of a coffee estate. Right from check in to check out I had a lovely time. I visited Serai with my husband for our 10th anniversary. The staff took great care of us. They arranged a romantic dinner for us with a mouth watering spread. We also used the... More

I visited the Serai Chikmaglur for Christmas with my parents. It's a fabulous resort in every sense. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The area of the resort is so vast, we enjoyed the plantation walk. Another plus point is the food, the veg spread was amazing and we absolutely loved it. I sent my parents for a spa treatment as well,... More

We went to the Serai for the New Years party. Overall had a good time but there were some things that really surprised us, given the high charge to join this party: The bar tender was clearly an amateur, and had no idea how to pour wine or beer. He filled up the entire glass with wine as we would... More
