We have the most memorable trip at the Serai! The property is very well maintained and our cottage was on the periphery of the Kabini river. We woke up to the prettiest scenery. The food was one of the best I have had. It was hospitality at its best. Any request at the dinner table was never shot down. We... More

This property is truly "tranquility personified". The rooms overlook the river giving an calming effect. The property looks romantic in the night. A must stay place for "newly wed" couples. Another MUST do activity-Anyone visiting Kabini must try the morning "Boat Safari" to see the rising SUN. Impossible to describe the feeling in words. It is as if GOD is... More

Had a very pleasant experience at Serai in Kabini. A very welcoming place, just overlooking the river with well appointed rooms and very decent food to boot. The hospitality was top notch and very sincere. Its a reasonably large property with a lot in house activities apart from the Jungle Safari by boat and land. Definitely worth a visit.

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. If you were desperate you could watch TV and get wifi in reception. Lots of activities were available and there was... More

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.
