This was a great hotel on the edge of the lake. The rooms were substantial cabins and were suberbly furnished but did not have a TV or Wifi. This was deliberate and due to the location was a benefit.

Only good things to say about this lovely place. Location, service, food and room all excellent. As a bonus, we saw 2 tigers on a water safari trip. The swimming pool was a bit chilly in February but once we got in it was just fine.

I have spent my recent vacation at the Serai Kabini. I was extremely satisfied with the hospitality they have given us. The place is little pricier, If you are looking for a splurge and spend the time relaxing in a hammock staring at the beautiful Kabini you can choose this place. All the villas have an excellent view and nice... More
