Serai is a bright spot in an otherwise dry and lifeless forest. The resort just hit all the right spots - rooms, food, service and property itself; everything just works. The staff is well trained and it shows how the property is managed. The resort, since it is located in Bandipur, lacks any access to fauna except the plenty of...

The Serai, Bandipur - One of the finest experience in wilderness. Beautiful resort with a very efficient support staff. Sumptuous Buffet spread and perfect taste. Try the nature walk with Nayak - a very well informed naturalist and amazing eye sight and senses to spot a bird or a wild boar.

Premium prices for a decidedly average product. Very few facilities in the bedroom, slow wifi only available in reception area and food so poor and stodgy food that we ended up going without on our second night.

Anything but love is what you feel for this place, tucked away in a western ghats. It promises you to take you to back in time. A quite place, you will connect with yourself. Good food, excellent staff, the rooms remind you of old world charm. Afternoon's are quite warm, do not carry a lot of warm clothes.
