Was able to stay just for one night but have to say the property is quite good. The cottages are very nice and spacious. The place is a birdwatcher's paradise. They also do a nature walk which is quite nice. Also, the food is quite exceptional. The staff is very warm & helpful.

The Serai is a beautiful resort. We stayed at the Residence, a spacious standalone cottage with its own terrace. While a bit more expensive, it's worth the privacy and stunning views it offers.
