"Fabulous resort in a beautiful setting"
Recently stayed with my wife and two small children (aged 2 and 4). Beautiful setting and wonderful service, including things for young children (playground, swimming pool and games room). Courteous friendly staff who went out of their way to help us. The food in restaturant was splendid and the head chef was happy to prepare all sorts of different cuisines on request. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

"Stunning time with great hospitality and memorable holidays spent"
We visited this resort during Diwali - October 2017. Property is really good and very well maintained. Resort itself had a number of amenities to explore. Swimming pool was quite well maintained. Food quality was excellent. Staff was very much co-operative and aggressive in terms of service orientation. From my entire journey, I would say this resort provided us glimpse of pan Indian food with no. of varieties and dishes. Chef was ready to serve you whatever variety of food you demand. Especially you should not miss filter coffee made by chef in this resort. Diwali festival was very well organized during our stay with music, housie ,Karaoke and other events.Property is very much large and surrounded by greenery. Each villa had a Jacuzzi which was really well maintained with hygiene. We really enjoyed a lot.Thanks to the management of "Serai" for everything they did during our stay. I would recommend this resort for fantastic holidays and memorable stay.

"Amazing property"
Serai has always been a favourite, have visited all their properties multiple times and this was my second time in chikmanglur. The hotel staff was very accommodating to all our requests . This short break for us was mostly to relax as we were travelling with two kids both less than 5 years of age. Rooms were good and spacious. Restaurant mostly served set menu due to less occupancy which was good in a way to avoid food wastage. They took special care and provided a wonderful candlelight dinner.
Overall , Serai never stops to amaze me with the experience. Will definitely plan a trip soon to one of their other properties.
