Besides the hammocks and vast green grounds there is nothing to write about.. a documentary film on wildlife, cycles and few old equipment for some sports and a bonfire there is nothing much to do... and to be honest I was surprised to see such huge ant hills on the property.. it is a little risky for an unassuming kid.....

We decided on serai kabini after visiting serai bandipur. It is one of the good places in kabini. It is expensive than serai bandipur but quality and quantity wise it is much less. Property, room size, amenities are smaller and lesser compared to bandipur. Even service was much better in bandipur. If this is your first time visiting any serai...

I travelled with my 70 years old mother, my sister and my 2 nieces who are 11 and 13. It was a perfect weekend. the resort is spread on 10 acre land with just 20 cottages. so there is enough and more space and privacy for everyone. all the villas face the river. although in summer there was no water....

The serai is a beautiful property in the middle of nowhere. Highlights of the trip were- the food ( everything was awesome- not one thing on the menu / buffet that wasn't yum), the spa ( reasonably priced yet awesome), the river, evening bonfire ( right next to the bar ;)), kinda open showers in the room and the pool....

The resort is located on the banks of the Kabini next to the JLR resort. You can be rest assured of being cut off from the hustle of the city once you check-in. All the rooms overlook the river, since it was a pretty bad summer this time, one really had to strain the eyes to sight the water! But...

Fantastic hotel set in a beautiful garden with views onto the national park. The service is excellent. The rooms are nicely furnished and very clean. The garden is immaculate. The food is also excellent. If you want something special, they are more than willing to accommodate. The safaris are done through the forest service and are very nice. They are...
