Best place for couples who are looking to spend some quality time together, enjoy amazing food, relax and explore nature's beauty in a calm, scenic and serene environment. Concept of private villas was new to us and so refreshing. It was like owning our own house for the 4 days we lived @ The Serai Chikkamagalur. Extremely classy villas designed...

Stayed for 3 nights at Serai Chikmagalur. The resort is nestled inside a coffee plantation and is beautifully laid out. The villas are very luxurious with a private swimming pool. The staff is very courteous and attentive. On our first there were very few guests so the staff pampered us a lot. The chef at the restaurant take personalized requests...

Lasagna was amazing. Variety of food for buffets were very good. Deserts needed improvement. Very courteous staff. Regret not having been able to stay longer at this chilled out city of coffee Chikmangalur!

This Aman style property sits in the middle of a large coffee plantation in hectic Chikmagalur. The very eager staff will accompany guests on a walking tour of the coffee growing area to explain the coffee growing process and to see gorgeous vegetation, birds and fruit bats. The rooms are large and quiet and very well appointed, with every luxury...

That the Serai is a gorgeous property is obvious. The beautifully done up villas, are your haven to a relaxed getaway. The staff is courteous and helpful. The concept of complimentary evening tea is also a great gesture. We tried the lunch buffet and dinner buffet but felt that the food was just average, can definitely be improved. No complaints...
