We traveled to Chikmagalur for a 3 day trip with my family. Visited the Halebeedu temple on the way. Reach Serai around 1 pm and was greeted with flowers and a warm welcome. Since we were super hungry headed directly for lunch which was extremely tasty. The rooms are huge and very comfortable. However we went in end of July... More

Our stay at The Serai was memorable. The property occupies a huge 75 acres of land with lush green cofee plantations all around. The individual villas with private pool is a bliss. The interior of the rooms is amazing. I would definitely like to mention the bathrooms as they are beautifully designed and very practical. All the rooms have both... More

We visited Serai for a day last month and it was awesome. This being my one year old's first vacation, we were very excited to see her enjoy the place so much. Service was the best one can expect and the food was really awesome too with amazing spread at all times. We faced initially slight issue with the Jacuzzi... More

As expected, stay at the Serai was just fascinating! As the other Serai properties, the place is wonderful and a well maintained 70 acre property, with coffee plantations. The individual villas, with options of private pool or Jacuzzi, give you the privacy as promised and interiors are beautiful. Staff was extremely courteous right from the check in to check out....

This is the best in luxury money can buy. Thoroughly enjoyed 3 days in serene setup. Resort is inside a 70 acre coffee plantation and gives you complete privacy with well designed villas and private pool. One can just gaze the intricate design all day. Staff were really courteous right from welcome to exit great hospitality. Some negatives: (Management should... More

Been here a couple of times ..... Very well planned and there is a water body in every room which compensates for the sun which beats upon you a bit too heavy in the odd season. I wish there were some trees inside the resort and not just all around it. The Spa is very good and but Restaurent gets... More

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
