2017-04-21

With summer upon us, a thoughtful getaway presents us with exciting prospects. An escape from the confines of the city to take a break at one of The Serai resorts this season will surely leave you with beautiful memories after experiencing the serene tranquility of nature. The summer maybe the hottest season of year but you can rest assured that the time you spend at our resorts will be that much needed getaway that you always look forward to. Here are a few things what spring to our mind when we think of summers.

 

1. Family Vacations

Family time = Fun time

 

 

 

Our fondest memories of well spent family time always revolve around summers. Summer is a time when the entire family can enjoy a stress free vacation and bond freely away from the burden of their mundane daily activities. It is important to give attention to the needs of your loved ones during your vacations. Having elders also as a part of your vacation will make it that much more fun. Care for your Elders by ensuring that you plan your trip with adequate breaks so that they too can enjoy the vacation at their own pace. Ensure that their medication needs are also taken care of. Children and toddlers need to be supervised to keep them away from potential hazards. They should also be adequately occupied with fun games and activities so that they do not feel left out and enjoy the vacation with the family.

 

2. Animals sightings & water activities in summer

Summer is that time of the year when the arid conditions force wildlife (the hunters and the hunted alike) to come out of their comfort zone in search of water sources. This condition presents you with the possibility of experiencing wildlife from up close which would otherwise be difficult. Summer also presents you with a unique scenario when the temperature of the water body is ideal in the mornings for some fun water activities. This is something you should surely not miss out on.

 

3. Food : Some specialities to look forward to at The Serai

This summer, The Serai Chikmagalur, has a lavish buffet spread which will appeal to all your gastronomical needs. For dessert, the season’s special includes a mango gateau which is prepared with fresh Alphonso mangoes. One can also savor some exotic tarts & pies prepared with fresh fruits. The Thai food at the restaurant is also a crowd favorite.

 

At The Serai Kabini, South Indian and Chinese cuisine are the in thing this season. Our specialty Idlis and Dosas are a must try. The Kesari Bath and Pongal are also a big attraction.

 

At The Serai Bandipur, North Indian cuisine is in trend this season. The Shahi Tadka, which was historically patronized by the Mughal Royalty is enjoyed by guests from all over. Surely your palette is in for a treat this summer at The Serai.

 

However, if you decide to step out to experience the local delicacies in and around The Serai, be sure to talk to the resort managers or the concierge in advance to find something to suit your taste and avoid any unpleasant surprises. Also ensure that you have light meals and freshly cooked food to cope with the heat of the summer.

 

4. How to make your days interesting at The Serai
Try not to break into a sweat this summer, for we have a few interesting suggestions for your ideal summer at The Serai. Beat the midday heat by taking a dive in the pool with your friends and family at The Serai. You and your loved ones could get pampered and rejuvenated at the Oma Spa at The Serai. Just be sure to book your appointments in advance. For the bookworms out there, The Serai resorts provide you plenty of options to just lay back and read a book in a peaceful setting with no one to bother you. Traditional indoor board games are also great to have a fun time with friends and family.

 

5. Do’s & Don’ts related to Travel
For summers, ensure that you start-off early in the morning and complete the majority of your travel before midday. This will ensure that your energy does not get sapped by the Sun and will let you enjoy the amenities at The Serai. Your outdoor excursions like plantations visits and wildlife safaris should be done in the early mornings or in the evenings to minimize heat exhaustion.

Be sure to stay hydrated during summers

 

 

 

This is the time of the year when the essentials of summer care will definitely come in handy. Sunscreens with a good SPF rating are a must for travel and outdoor excursions to protect yourself from the harsh UV radiations. Make sure you carry plenty of water while traveling and adequately hydrate yourself at regular intervals. A hydration pack will prove to be your best companion for outdoor activities in the summer.
