We visited Serai, Kabini in July 2014. Its just adjacent to Nagarhole National park. The rooms are spacious and peaceful. The view from room (aptly named waterfront villa) is awesome as you can see river flowing in front of your room. The food is ok here, has scope of improvement. The best part is the activities. You can play a range of games like table tennis, badminton, do cycling, do swimming, etc. All in all a good place to visit.

Room Tip: If you want peace chose the room in ascending order. Example room number 1-2 were the farthest and quietest.

Highlights of the trip:
+ The whole property has a canopy of coconut and palm trees.. so you dont feel the summer sun at all...
+ The BESTEST hammocks with each room ever... imagine cool breeze under canopy of trees by a river bank.. in reality its even better!
+ Best kayaking experience ever.. The hotel provides Kayaks for Rs 250 each for 30 mins.. its an amazing experience.. when we were kayaking actually there was a short thunderstorm.. it was sooo beautiful to be in teh backwaters when a wall of rain approached and crashed on us :)
+ Swimming pool.. can be maintained better.. but atleast they have it in the middle of forest.. and its of a good size!
+ Staff went out of the way to help us.. esp. with a boat ride that we are not allowed to write about! Thanks guys!!!

Room Tip: We stayed at rooms 8 and 9.. as the room numbers decrease they keep getting farther away from teh swimming pool, kayaking area and restaurant.. so if you want to be secluded (even more) go for Room #1.. otherwise Room#18

The Serai has the perfect combination of nature and luxury. Stay, cottage, safari, staff, facilities....all at its best.
The best part of our stay was the river side view and the food. Can't ask for more.......maintained the legacy of Cicada or even better.
Nature lovers or anybody looking for serenity.....don't miss The Serai..

Stayed: July 2014, travelled as a couple
