One of the best resorts I have stayed ever. Very nice food , very friendly staff, excellent service. It's exactly in the middle of kadipur jungle. One must stay here if they are interested in wildlife reserves.

I spent couple of nights here in Hut 23 starting Aug 31 with my wife and the little daughter. First of all I was very much impressed with the communication and hospitality of all the people there starting from the manager. They called us 3/4 times while we were on our way just to make sure we reach there safely. The place was simply amazing and very well maintained. The staff has always been there with prompt reaction to any request all the time. The room was very nice, clean and it had a great view towards the jungle and the mountain. The food was good and so was the bar. I would love to visit there again sometime in the near future and I wish the same quality is maintained for ever. It was very relaxing and I would suggest this place for everyone who wants to spend couple of days of serenity in the middle of the green jungle. I would like to thank the manager Ankush who took the lead to kind of maintain everything there and also all the people working there to make it a great place/experience for us. Thank you!

Even though it was a last minute plan but we had lovely two days with family & parents . The staff was welcoming and helpful. It’s a great place to relax and rewind. Lots of activity for kids and adults . The five hour jungle safari is worth the ride . After which a nice massage at their spa was wonderful too . It was a great trip .

I can’t think of any other hotel which you can literally close your eyes ans book. This is the 3rd time i have stayed in a Serai property after Chikmanglur and Kabini. The property is as usual fabulous. Its massive and right inside the Bandipur Tiger Reserve. The cottages are so well done with glass roof in the restrooms. We were a couple with our 10 year old son and 70 year old mother so we took a corner bungalow which came with 2 rooms so it was super comfortable. The balcony has a fabulous jungle view. Honestly I don’t see the need to get out of the room. The staff calls and comeback over to check if you need anything. The restaurant serves beautiful food. Just loved their service. Such prompt staff. The buffets are amazing. You can include 1 or both meals in your reservation. Breakfast anyway is part of the room. You can opt for high tea at a very nominal rate. I loved the bar. Beautifully done overlooking the swimming pool. You can pick a cycle and roam around the property. There are enough activities like x box, indoor games etc for the kids. Bullock cart ride, trekking etc. The safari starts from outside the Bandipur Tiger Reserve main gate so you have to go all the way out and catch the jungle lodge vehicle from there. But doesn’t matter as they take care of all the arrangements beautifully. Love Serai. RIP Mr Siddharth. We love your CCDs and Serai properties and will continue to support you in whichever way we can.

Extremely unpleasant experience dealing with the serai Bandipur admin folks over the phone. Due to a medical emergency, I put in a request for a date change of our 2 night stay. I was bluntly refused any opportunity for an itinerary change and left with the only option to show up or lose my money on the 2 night stay. I would expect better policies from a 5 star resort like the serai.
