Inspired by the Jungle
Built seamlessly into the forests around, we reserve half our land for the wild. For the shy deer that peer through your window, for the wild squirrels that dart by, the astounding birds who swoop around and for the elephants that call from afar.

Inspired by the Waterfront
The protected land of the wild – the home ground where birds trill and deer roam unafraid – the banks of the river running by - the magical point where the three wildlife parks meet – this is where you arrive for adventure.

"Ahhh! What a hotel and location!"
Ahhhh! The Serai! What a georgeous hotel! The room was just amazingly beautiful, the bathroom was spectacular and the grounds were just magic! The restaurant served some of the best food we had in India and the chef was attentive and creative. The service was great. If youstop in Bandipur, go to the Serai!

"The Serai Resort, Karnataka"
A beautiful resort, "away from it all" in the coffee hills of Karnataka. It was beautifully laid out, very stylish gardens and the individual bungalows with their own pools were first class. Extremely clean, well appointed and beautifully furnished, the staff was excellent and very helpful. Sadly we were only there for two nights, wish we could have stayed longer, but an experience to remember!

"Nature and man at their best"
Some 19-20 beautiful cottages. Very safe from the point of view of insects etc. Stunning jungle Safari. We sighted the tiger on our first visit to the Nagarhole National Park. That too with cubs. Also the rare pack of wild dogs.
The Kabini river Safari was equally amazing. Some 20-30 rare birds. And lots of elephants in the wild including Tuskers. I was satiated. But wait, there’s more in store.
The sumptuous food to begin with. Warm people. Smiling and very helpful. Go for morning walks and return invigorated. Visit the waterfront during sunsets.
The Serai property is inconspicuously, beautifully done up. Beautiful decor along simple lines. Do bird watching in the backyards with hammocks. The boats, however, could have been better. A sure must visit. I might repeat my visit.
