We were 2 families and spent 2 nights 3 days in serai. The property is huge and it's just amazing. Since it was off season we got a good deal with all meals and it was worth it. It is better to go for all meals option as there are no nearby restaurants. And it was a buffet during all...

It's by the river but the river runs dry around this time of the year. Riverbank is all there for you to play and cycle on - which I did on one of the mornings. You can sit in the verandah of your 'villa' and watch a great variety of bird life. Villa facilities are good, but, it is a...

We went there During Diwali, It was one of the best resort we have visited. Amazing ambience of resort, the rawness of wild and luxury of built are combined very well. Staff was also very polite and friendly. Although there were no sightings of Tiger in the wild, but Elephants saved the scene with their presence. Overall a wonderful experience.

Nice rooms, unlimited food, polite n attentive staff. It was summer so spotting wildlife was rare. Spa facilities would require more maintenance and attention. Rooms were good with all amenities. Loved the shower room

Went to Serai Bandipur last week. Stayed their for a day though. It's really good. We were really overwhelmed by their hospitality. It's located inside the forest. A very quite and calm place to spend a weekend.

The Serai Bandipur is at the end of the road / edge of the jungle. Absolutely beautiful property with stunning views of the Nilgiris and unspoilt nature – one couldn’t ask for a better property to spend time. The little things count – VERY spacious rooms with lovely front garden space and back sit outs with huge rocking chairs. Extremely...

Had been to The Serai- Bandipur in early March, 2017. Had booked a two night all meal package for my family consisting of 6 adults and 2 children. Its quite a long drive from the main road and have no complaints there as we wanted to be as away from the crowd as possible. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised...

The Serai (Coffee Day Group) has branches in Chikmagalur, Kabini and Bandipur. Their themes vary in every location. The Serai in Bandipur is an acquired property that was previously Cicada. The property is really good and has a Mountain View Log Hut Theme which is very good. They don't have Jacuzzi, Private Pool etc like Chikmagalur, but have some other...
