The Serai is a beautiful resort for relaxation. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. The cottages are secluded and have a wonderful ambience. The food in the restaurant is interesting with lots of variety.

The Serai Kabini is a very good property inside the Nagarhole tiger reserve. The rooms are wonderfully done and the the bathrooms have a wonderful open roof with rain shower. The pool is wonderful. The spa is also quite good. The food kept fluctuating between very good and strictly average. The choice is quite limited though. There is also a... More

However, they just don't know how to handle complaints, or perhaps they just don't care - which is unforgiveable considering the steep rates that they charge.... More
