My wife and I stayed for three very enjoyable nights at the Serai Kabini in February 2014. The accomodation, with a wonderful view of the Kabini river was VERY spacious, well lit, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Everything including the kettle and hot shower worked perfectly. The food and service was excellent, all the staff were cheerful, helpful and polite... More

We visited the Serai in February as part of a tour and thought the Serai was charming. There are only 20 cottages and this makes the place really quiet and calming. We had 3 safaris and were not lucky enough to see the tigers but saw lots of other wildlife and met some lovely people. Yes the road to the... More

I hafta say that Serai,Kabini is one of the best resorts I have visited in the country. The location is exquisite with most of the rooms facing the backwaters. The facilities at the resort are top-notch. The pool is really well maintained. The food and the spread available was sumptuous. The variety was commendable. I was so happy with the... More

We stayed there over the weekend. The rooms are wonderfully built and spacious. But you will start noticing lots of insects creeping in as it is located in a Jungle area. The Road to the Hotel is horribly bad. The food is ok. Not much variety or nothing really exciting. We had been to a Jungle safari which was pretty... More

We reached Serai Kabini from Orange County Coorg by road. It took us about 2.5 hours to reach. We stayed there for 2 nights, before returning to Mumbai via Bangalore. It's a small resort with all rooms facing the back waters. The view from the rooms is beautiful; especially at sun rise and sun set. They have a hammock outside... More

We spent two nights at the Serai Kabini in February 2014 as part of a 30 day tour of South India. This small well-run and very friendly lodge (20 rooms) is located on the shores of Kabini lake and only a few kilometres from the entrance to Nagarahole Tiger Reserve. The rooms are well spaced out in the extensive grounds.... More
