I have been to Serai twice, and to say that the experience has just improved over the years wouldn't be wrong. Right from the pickup at the airport to the comfortable long drive of about 5 hours to the luxurious villa with our own private pool, it is downright amazing. The most wonderful aspect of the place is the warmth...

It's pure class , good crowd , niche and that is so important when you need a relaxing holiday I liked the privacy in swimming pool. This place is not crowded like other hotels and resorts. Very quite place to relax and unwind

This is a very relaxing resort. The staff is extremely helpful. The waiter even let us order whatever we wanted for lunch and dinner even though we were part of the buffet package. The room was very tasteful and clean.

Visited this place with my wife and we both loved the place. Placed in between forest, this place is humongous. Coming to a place which is totally opposite to the crowed city of bangalore was divine. We stayed here for 3nights and I believe it was worth the money we spent. Thanks for your excellent service.

I loved the place- the pool was beautiful, the rooms were nicely done up duplexes, each with a pool. At our request, the activities director even took us on a plantation walk. The staff were eager to help, and the activities director even played a game of snooker with me when I asked him! The game room was good- foosball,...
