Rooms are decent with comfort and foods and breakfast are excellent, service is also excellent and staff are full co-operative. surrounding atmosphere fantastic and in night time kids of Hirans playing in the resort grounds, amazing view to see animals live so nearby. Person who is interested to enjoy wild life so closely must stay in country club at Bandipur Resort.

I stayed at The Serai Bandipur for a night. I wished I could have stayed there longer, but we were just passing through. However, that short time was enough to experience great service, quality food and a highly knowledgeable naturalist. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed too, fantastic bed.

This is a good hotel to stay, who loves the nature and this hotel is situated besides of Bandipur national park. So, we can enjoy the beautiful forest view from the hotel. Food also very good. Hotel staff are very nice in kind of service. The safari which is arranged by them into Bandipur National Park is a good experience to us. The rooms are very spacious and very comfortable.

It was really good. Appearance wise,it was very good. Staff behaviour was excellent. I tasted the food there and it was good. There were lot of varieties in both veg and non-veg. Room was really good. As a destination it is good. They provided sightseeing,campfire,etc was there. It was good. There was no problem regarding check-in or check-out. AC and LCD was provided in the room and all were in a working condition. Serai Bandipur is an excellent place to go. Location was also excellent. Appearance wise,it was excellent or more than that. Reception people were very good. Service of the staff was excellent. Rooms were also excellent there. Food was also excellent. Activity part was excellent. Nothing should be improved only the thing was that it was quite expensive. Rest everything is fine. I travelled there in the month of February with my friends. It was a relaxation trip.

Awesome experience!!!! Impossible to think any i mean any areas of improvement. If you talk of seamless deliver of service I think Serai is the best example on this globe. I have stayed in the best of hotels in the world, however The Serai is certainly the best amongst all of them. I just hope this doesnt change!!!

The courtesy extended from the beginning till end of stay was great. The stay at hotel was great with good Bed and AC. The nature screening beauty with chirping of bird and the open back yard with nice swing chair. The break fast, lunch and dinner buffet had variety of foods. especially the sea food served was great. In total the stay at Hotel serai bandipur was great and memorable one.

The drive to this resort was very good except for a few rough patches. We were greeted well right at the gate. We were served fruit juice during check-in and were made to fill out a form giving our address details, etc. We had taken a weekend package of the courtyard superior room. This has a big bedroom and a reasonably big drawing room with ACs in both the rooms. The bathroom has a small glass ceiling at a corner which makes the whole experience of using the bathroom all the more wonderful. This also has a sit-out overlooking the \'residence\'.

The restaurant was quite a walk from our room. All the meals were buffet and the assortment was just too good. Food was delicious. They serve snacks in an open space every evening. It was a very good experience to sip piping hot coffee with hot snacks when cool air was blowing around.
Since the entire 40 acre property is in the Bandipur forest range, only sounds that could be heard were the sound of rustling leaves from strong winds or sounds made by birds or trees swaying due to winds. The resort was very calm and is very good for relaxation, meditation, etc away from the noise of the cities. Rooms were pricey but it was worth every penny.
The \'naturalist\' by name Imran was an encyclopedia when it came to animals, their habitat, etc He took us for a \'nature walk\' at around 5.30 am to sight wild animals. We were given good binoculars and we spotted a few deers having breakfast, fresh elephant dung and its footprints!
They have indoor games to do some time pass. Swimming pool was not heated, so it was difficult to use in rainy weather.
When we were just about to start back, we noticed that our car had a flat tyre. I informed them about it and though we had checked out, they called in a few guys and replaced the tyre with ease.
The staff are always smiling and ready to help. All I can say is it was a wonderful experience and I recommend anyone, who has a couple of days to spare, to stay here and have a superb time.

Room Tip: Take the courtyard \'superior\' room only if you intend to use the drawing room as equally as...
