Had gone to Kabini with family for the long weekend 03-05Sep2016 and stayed in JLR resort as Serai and other resorts were full. We wanted to stay for one more day and Serai was just a km from JLR. So we drove to check out the property and if room was available we thought we will stay there for a... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at the Serai. The property is beautiful, located on the banks of the river Kabini with sprawling lawns, lazy hammocks and well-appointed rooms. We, a family of 4 stayed in an individual villa, very well furnished, comfy huge bed (larger than a US King) and a large bath. We also... More

Serai is one the best properties I have visited in India, with great river view and a vast green expanse throughout the resort. We were travelling with our 2 year old kid and were a bit apprehensive, but the hotel and staff made sure our stay was comfortable and pleasant. The staff are very courteous and helpful. The food is... More

Visited Serai for the first time at Kabini and stayed for 2N with my spouse. Immediate impression of the property is good with a river (to be precise - reservoir) front property and serene atmosphere. The check in was smooth - I had booked their Haven accommodation. My recommendation will be the cottages at the far end of the property... More

Visited during a crowded long weekend in August. The facility is very close to the Jungle lodges property in Kabini. The approach road from Bangalore to the resort is excellent till probably the last half kilometer. The resort itself is located in a large plot of land right next to the Kabini lake. The rooms are spread across the land... More

Hard to find anything wrong but splendid rooms, nine better than the other, warm staff and outstanding views. The safari guide is very knowledgeable. One gripe I had was that Serai likely has no access to the deepest part of the national park which I experienced last time with Jungle Lodges so I would still live there as that is... More

Excellent place, fantastic staff. Rooms are really good with nice view towards the lake. Kapila river flows right in front of the villas. If you passionate about cycling, you will find cycles in the resort to take a ride. The activities are safari ride, boat ride, rest in the evening with Bon fire and good dinner.
