Rest by the riverbed as the waters calm your senses. Each cottage at The Serai Kabini is designed to give you a unique view of the waterfront with nothing but birds coming in the way.
Waterfront Verandah

Twin cottages, each with cozy warm wood interiors, spotless white linens and a pretty little sit-out. The designer bathroom inside is fitted with a fibre-glass top for an open sky shower.

Waterfront Villa

Stone walls, wooden floors, tiled roofs and a lovely patch of green to call your own. The exquisitely decorated interiors will leave you enchanted.

The residence

Enjoy a spacious bedroom, living room, two private verandahs and a private Jacuzzi. Wake up to the sounds of the mighty river on one side and a truant little creek flowing by on the other.

Feast between the hills and misty forests. Enjoy scrumptious spreads and fine wine at a secluded spot, reserved just for you.
Wildgrass At The Serai Kabini
Living close to nature is a luxury only a few can afford. For those who can, our restaurant, Wildgrass, puts out a wide range of multi cuisine delicacies and food favourites that delight you.
The Outpost
Call it old fashioned but the wooden beams and tables really bring out the charm of this watering hole. Sip your drink and savour each moment under the starlight at our open-air bar, The Outpost.

Guest Reviews
"Great location for nature lovers"
This property is located near a national Tiger preserve and offers a free 3-hour safari to guests. Excellent staff, cool location and a fun place to "turn off your jets" and disconnect from the world. I spent 3 days/nights here and enjoyed every aspect of this resort. If you are looking for a clean, authentic, India stay...take the drive from Bangalore and enjoy peace and serenity.

"Place to rejuvenate and detox"
On reaching this place you realise what we are missing in cities and are destroying. The property is covered with lush green lawns. Its all green as far as you can see. You can feel the freshness in the air, with zero air or sound pollution. You can hear the birds chirping and rabbit running in the bushes. Very courteous staff. Good food.Special mention the coffee.The staff was very cooperative to provide soft food for my one year old grandson. Rooms 17, 18, 19 are the best if travelling in group. They arrange for jungle safari and visit to Shiva temple by boat across the river.
