The Serai has the perfect combination of nature and luxury. Stay, cottage, safari, staff, facilities....all at its best. The best part of our stay was the river side view and the food. Can't ask for more.......maintained the legacy of Cicada or even better. Nature lovers or anybody looking for serenity.....don't miss The Serai..

The most attractive point about the Serai is its location, on the banks of the Kabini Reservoir. It is well laid out and landscaped, with cottages and complexes dotted across the property. The staff is really attentive and its security personnel most vigilant. I was pulled up twice (very courteously) for leaving my cottage open and wandering around! The food... More

We booked a 2 night monsoon package by calling up their corporate center as their website was not working. I received a mail two days before we started, that said that I could get one night off for one night booking. I called up the center but they did not extend this offer to me as I have already paid.... More

We recently spent two nights at The Serai as part of our tour of Karnataka. We enjoyed delicious meals and excellent service from the restaurant manager, waiting staff, chef and barman. Our villa was beautifully decorated with a wonderful view of the lake. The highlight of our stay was the "wildlife" from the birds we spotted with our keen, enthusiastic... More

We visited The Serai at Kabini again in May 2014. Our visit last October (see my review of October 2013) was very productive in terms ofthe wildlife we saw and the great hospitality of the Serai. This time around, we saw many elephants, gaurs and various birds like the brahmini kites, blue Jay jays and serpent eagles. The defining part... More

Had the most amazing weekend at the Serai, Kabini. One of my friends had suggested this property to us and I am grateful to her because it was much more than our expectations. The road to the resort is being repaired and is not as bad as people have written on their reviews. As soon as you enter the property,... More
