"An amazing place; well-behaved staff "

6.8/7
Posted 3 months ago

I went for a weekend trip to The Serai in Bandipur with my family for three days. The place is beautifully maintained and because of the cleanliness it gives an awesome feel of the environment. Since the resort is located around 8 km from the main road, it gives absolute feel of staying in a jungle. Staff are helpful and well-behaved. Though the va....

"Location, property and food is superb "

6.4/7
Posted 6 months ago

In safari part they could organize one jeep instead of bus as they charged 1500 (govt rate is 300). The food was excellent. The resort is beautifully laid out inside the forest. One scope of improvement can be the service part. When I am asking for something they should promptly say yes or no. For example, I called reception thrice for just coconut....

"Very good, quiet and serene place "

6.1/7

Very good property and rooms were very spacious with great view, very close to Bandipur national park safari area, 40 km from Ooty, 20 km from Masinagudi. Food was average. Hospitality was good. Last 7 km access to the hotel can be improved significantly.

"Excellent service and great place!"

6.7/7
Posted 10 months ago

Location was excellent. It is in the centre of the jungle. Staff was very courteous and prompt in responding to requests. Food was good, the local cuisines prepared were excellent. The roti's were not as great as I expected from this class of resort. Overall an excellent place but I still feel it is slightly overboard on pricing.

"Offers quality service and luxurious ease"

6.0/7
Posted 1 year ago

We stayed with our whole family at this hotel. A mix between nature, the tranquility of the site. Hotel offers high quality service, a great restaurant for our kids. The grip is timed and perfect and the manager of great kindness. We spent three days at this lodge, perfectly laid out rather luxurious ease.

"Excellent property, courteous staff"

6.8/7
Posted 3 years ago

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...

You name anything, everything is at its best. Right in the middle of jungle. Everything is perfect including room, food, facility, activities, staff etc. I was amazed by the attitude of every staff at this place. A lot thanks to Abhishek and his team, Nayak- I think that's his name if I am not wrong- and restaurant manager, Our antral walk guide etc. Even the sweeping servants were treated us with a warm smile and wishes. We were amazed to see such +ve energy there. Felt like so happy. Every staff there is somehow related to wildlife. Looks like the management is hand picked the staff and a great work. Much appreciate. We are planing to go back here again whenever possible. Just to enjoy the stay!!! If I think about a trip to any place, I will be looking for Serai for sure.

One scope of improvement can be the service part. When I am asking for something they should promptly say yes or no. For example, I called reception thrice for just coconut oil. But they did not come back to me or did not inform about non availability. This is just an example.

"Great experience!"

6.3/7
Posted 4 years ago

After getting lost on the way (which was expected- given that my husband was driving) and reaching late, everything just fell into place- the weather was perfect, animals were adventurous enough to come close to the resort, unseasonal rains had added a lot of green cover.I came back to the city recharged and upbeat.
