The Serai Kabini, Southern India

The twenty-acre Serai Kabini resort features a collection of beautiful guestrooms and cottages which dot the banks of the meandering Kabini River.

Each of the twenty rooms are designed to give its occupants a fantastic view over the river, where you can watch wildlife come and go from the comfort of your own veranda. The resort’s exclusive ‘residence’ boasts a private sit out, as well as a large living space and a Jacuzzi also facing the river. Each of the twenty rooms are designed to give its occupants a fantastic view over the river, where you can watch wildlife come and go from the comfort of your own veranda.
