The Serai in Chikkamagalur, India

The Serai Resort is a fine example of a tranquil oasis of luxury and peace, to refresh the mind and body by seamlessly integrating luxury and richness of nature. The Serai in Chikmagalur connects to trails through the coffee plantations and has an open network of verandas that displays views of the green landscape with white blossoms peeking out. Accommodation is provided in estate villas that are immaculately furnished and designed in contemporary style. Each villa has a private garden that features either a private pool or jacuzzi for exclusivity.

Just after your awaking the pool, built as a natural extension of the bedroom will wait for you. Surrounded by greenery, a glass wall blurs the boundary between nature and the interiors. Walk along the coffee plantation will be one of your daily, relaxing habits. Sit at the lodge sip your delicate wine, or relax at the Spa. A visit to the ancient temple of Kodanda Ramaswamy and Udbhava Ganapathi will complete your travel in the ancient rhythm of India.

A beautiful resort, "away from it all" in the coffee hills of Karnataka. It was beautifully laid out, very stylish gardens and the individual bungalows with their own pools were first class. Extremely clean, well appointed and beautifully furnished, the staff was excellent and very helpful. Sadly we were only there for two nights, wish we could have stayed longer, but an experience to remember!

Recently visited Serai with friends for a couple of days. The stand out feature of this property is the pool Villa, amazing hospitality, great quality of food and the ambiance in general. The Villa is done beautifully with a state of the art Balinese design. It’s equipped with a massive toilet and an out door shower area apart from a pool bed which was quite appreciated by the group. Hospitality recvd by the staff at the restaurant - particularly Wilfred is what really made our stay special! He was excellent in guiding us to pick the right food and made sure we were seated in a private area where we could sink into the nature and enjoy some giggles over a drink. He customised food to suit our palates and thereby ensured us a great time! The Spa is being relocated and the make shift spa isn’t something to brag off. They could consider sending the therapists to the villas. The gym which is in the middle of the coffee plantation could do with an instructor. The plantation walk guided by Mr Pradeep was quite enjoyable. The plantation in general is breathtakingly beautiful and offers scope for a walk to treat yourself to some solitude. Don’t miss out on that! Do take the bike around... Overall, it was a nice and enjoyable experience at the Serai

The SERAI is one the best resorts I have come across till date In Karnataka. It was exceptionally a lovely stay with them. It's niche and an apt for a relaxing holiday. Hospitality : Starting from your check in till you check out the staffs are so courteous and go a step ahead if you need anything. They make your stay hassle free and indeed a very comfortable stay. I would appreciate Pooja, Uday, Sannidhi & Resort Manager for their extended help during our stay without compromising on anything. Rooms : We stayed at Estate Villa Pool - what you say it was great. Starting from the entrance to your room, the simple yet elegant interiors, a classic spacious bathroom with an addition of open shower too under the stars & sky! Thank you Prakash and Uday for utmost care and even the housekeeping guys who did clean room 4 times once! Food : Food was as expected. Limited menu yet had a chance to taste malnad cuisine with malnad hospitality at the same time. My suggestion would be please try chicken biryani - spicy,tangy with pure spices grown within their 70acres estate. And MUST try Mango pannacota. I would thank chef, Ugrappa & Rajesh for taking special care during our stay & being so caring regarding our breakfast when we were heading our early morning. They literally pack you food /fruits and give even when you are checking out so you can munch something during drive.

Had visited the Hotel along with my family for dinner. Thanks to the excellent courtesies by Mr Thammaiah C M, was very cordial and caring. A show around was organised by Mr Thammaiah before dinner and I must confess, this is one of the finest properties I have ever visited. Dinner was great and the desserts were mouth watering. Its real country's pride to have such resorts around. Wish you all the best.
