We stayed at the resort during Easter weekend and we had a wonderful time. The food has a good choice and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Very kid friendly and plenty of activities for the kids and adults. The shower certainly needed more pressure though, but apart from this, the pool was fantastic with good shade over the pool...

Beautiful view, very clean rooms and excellent food.. what more does one need for a stress-free weekend. They have lots of activities including kayaking. Enjoyed the bird watching (don't miss it) and mainly the jungle safari by boat and vehicle (spotted a leopard, three crocodiles and a dancing peacock apart from the many spotted deers, monkeys and wild boars). Excellent... More

Well. If you want a forest safari in nearby jungle and want to live in a cottage right next to the river - then this property is certainly recommended. It is around 4-5 hours drive away from Bangalore. Rooms are very well maintained. Spread of breakfast, lunch, and dinner is plentiful - and there are both good veg and non... More

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
