Its beautifully nested resort within a big coffee estate. They have limited rooms, cottage style. Two room options, pool or jacuzzi; that ur cottage comes with... A good escape from bangalore on weekends. Book well in advance. The food buffet has scope of improvement. Will visit again for sure.

We had been on a holiday to Chikamagalur and on the last day had lunch at Serai which was an EXPERIENCE, a very bad one. The staff were very lethargic right form the reception to the service. We sat down requesting water. The waiter poured dirty water with lot of suspended particles, almost like diluted curds. We were shocked, but... More

The rooms were very clean and we stayed in a Jacuzzi villa for a night and in the pool villa on the following night. Enjoyed both the rooms! Room service... More

As like always, iwould like to summarize the place and then detaills. Just by having a great piece of real estate, you cannot have a great hotel. It takes much more than good property, rooms, land scapes and views. People do come back to a property for service, hospitality and more... Now for the details. This 7-8 year old resort... More

Serai is definitely a very beautiful luxurious boutique resort amidst a calm atmosphere. We opted for the estate pool villa which had a very big bedroom and a huge most luxurious bathroom. We had a private middle sized pool which was very good. Interiors of the room were very elegant. Considering it is a five star rated resort we expected... More

Good for corporate outbounds and activities: cricket, shuttle, tennis, archery, treasure hunts, spa, indoor games & walks. This particular property is not spectacular (as one says about resorts) but the estate that surronds is good enough for a weekend or corporate break.
