The Serai Jaisalmer is full of surprises!! The property is 'in the mid of nowhere', but had everything you expect from a five star resort and beyond! The staff were Super friendly, the resort itself was amazing, Camel ride and dinner are highly recommended.

Checkin was simple and smooth and we were taken to room soon after being greeted with jasmine flowers. Resort was silent calm and hardly any noise around. Probably due to just 29 rooms and that too villas, it remain calm and peaceful. We booked for villa with pool. I believe there are just few without pool, which have jacuzzi instead....

The Hotel is awesome as one enters this property, however the moment you check into the rooms the experience changes due to lack of maintenance. The beautiful architecture of the place was impressive with a private pool - not cleaned - the room was stinking with odour of a dead animal. The Hotel Management was not willing to change rooms...

Vast expanse of a property in the midst of coffee/pepper plantations. Ideal for a break away from the city. It works well with an all meals package. The property is excellent with spacious villa rooms and a private pool for each villa. The only negative point is the price.....way too expensive!

Wanted to visit this resort for a long time and finally ticked it off my bucket list. The overall atmosphere is really serene. We were welcomed with friendly smiles and garlands. The rooms are huge and the private pool was a huge plus point, along with a bed near the pool to relax. There are plantation walks and activities like...

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...

We used the...
