Beautiful property next to the raw forest. We got lucky to see a deer herd right outside our sit out area on the very first day. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They prepared noodles and pasta which suited our toddler's pallette perfectly. Special mention about Imran, Mahadev, Nag shetty ,Basaappa who went out of their way to tend to us. Enjoyed Bullock cart ride.Glad we chose to stay here.

Friendly staff, amazing property, good indian food. Special mention to the naturalist Mr. imran. I have been to many safaris but haven't met anyone with such abundant knowledge, friendly demeanour and no bs person. He has loads of patience and is willing to tickle intellectual part of tourists . In nutshell, if you want an experience of a 5-star resort without losing the touch and feel of forest, this is the place to be in bandipur

I had been looking forward to stay at a Serai Resort since a long time. Finally got an opportunity to visit Bandipur this September. It was a memorable stay with a seamless experience in this scenic resort. Mr. Thammaiah who heads this resort brilliantly has an amazing team of passionate experts who go all out to create a perfect stay full of lasting memories. Special shout out to Nixon, Chef Bhardwaj and Guruprasad 🙏🏾

Very good stay , beautiful rooms , very comfortable . Courteous staff and very good food . Never felt away from home . Parents also enjoyed the stay and were very comfortable . Safari I felt with other resorts we had better chances of viewing wild animals .. disappointed that the track we went on ..we could hardly find any animals except elephants which otherwise could be spotted even without safari . It was damp squib for the money paid .
