With three of the country’s finest national parks close by, the backwaters of the Kabini River rank among the most wildlife-rich areas of India, and this is the perfect base from which to explore the area. Nestled on the banks of the Kabini itself, the resort comprises a row of stylish stone-clad verandah rooms and wood-beamed villas with sitouts facing the water.
The luxurious interiors form a stark contrast to the nature on your doorstep, but don’t feel over-done, even at night, when staff light pretty candles and tea lights along the pathways and pool edges. Optional activities offered here include jungle safaris, nature walks, birdwatching trips and kayaking on the river.
First class facilities and comfortable rooms make the Serai a good base for game drives into the Nagarhole National Park.
