The Serai Bandipur
Serai Bandipur, unlike any other resort in the region, is situated very close to the Bandipur National Park. Bandipur as you know, teems with wildlife, and provides a safe haven to a wide swathe of wildlife, which includes the Four horned Antelope, Gaur, Asiatic Elephant, Leopard, Sloth bear, black napped hare, black leopard and a host of bird species like the Barbet, Babbler, Warbler and the Indian Peafowl.
Among other things, Serai-Bandipur offers a panoramic breathtaking view of the magnificent Nilgiris. Look out of your bedroom and you'll be presented with a perpetually changing view of the Nilgiris. One moment it's misty, the other it's shrouded in shadows. Then when you least expect it, it's jaw-droppingly spectacular. While soaking in the view is an activity in itself, you'll see that the list of things to do is limited only by the time you have.

Bird watching in Bandipur is an excellent pastime with over 300 species of birds being recorded here.
The Bandipur region is dominated by deciduous forests, but you can also find patches of scrubs around the periphery as well as a lot of cultivation around the area. The backwaters of the Bandipur act as a huge water body attracting a wide variety of water birds. Even when the river recedes, it leaves isolated pools of water that attract a multitude of birds as fish are trapped in them.
Some of the birds that can be found in this region are the Osprey, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Malabar Pied Hornbill, White-bellied Sea Eagle, Malabar Trogon, White-bellied Woodpecker, White-rumped Shama and the Plum-headed Parakeet.
Resort is located on acres of swaying palm trees and lush, tall grass (home to dozens of different birds) and a good way to explore it would be on a bicycle.
One of the nicest things about a resort in the wilderness is the beautiful clear sky above. Resort will provide a telescope and with the help of trained naturalists, you can embark on a cosmic trip and discover the mysteries that lie beyond our planet.
We have bonfires every evening where you can huddle round and the naturalists entertain you with jungle yarns. Sip a drink. Greet your fellow guests. Make new friends.
