The Serai resort

  The Serai Bandipur is a relaxed 246 km drive from Bangalore, hidden away from the bustle and noise, on a road that meanders among bamboo thickets and tiny villages. Stretched out alongside the Bandipur National Park, it is an ode to peace. The architecture of the resort has been inspired by the game lodges of Africa, with a touch of the Mediterranean thrown in - in the sparkling white walls that surround the cottages. Thatched roofs, arresting animal prints in each room, large glass doors, wooden floors, open verandahs, a profusion of strong-beamed wood work and delightful little touches like the large Nagra drums, used in the durbars of old. All these come together to put you in another realm, at another time, and in complete harmony with the dense forests around you.


The Serai offers 24 units of accommodation - 18 Courtyards, 4 Loghuts and 2 Residences.

Courtyard: the Mountain View Courtyard is a home away from home. And a luxurious home at that. Wooden or stone-tiled floors, wood-beamed ceilings, large glass French windows, a large, luxuriously appointed bathing area.

Courtyard Superior: courtyards that boast an extra living room as well as the other features mentioned above. This living room attached to the bedroom, has floor to ceiling glass windows

Loghuts: In addition to the usual amenities - a cosy bedroom, and large bathing areas - the Mountain View Loghut also has a well-stocked mini bar area. Its very own back verandah
