I wanted to spend a quiet 3 night away from the city for a special occasion. I was debating between Kumarakom and this place, before I finally narrowed down to this place. I chose the 3 night package of Estate pool villa, which included all 3 meals for both of us.
The resort had arranged a car to pick us up from Birur station. It was a bit of bumpy 1.5 hr drive. As soon as you check in to the resort, you are offered a yummy cold coffee. Luckily, we were given the resort near to the entrance, so we didn't have to walk much. The villa was huge, with a big bedroom and bathroom. We did have our own private pool in the room, but didn't really swim as the weather was pretty cold.
I was not a big fan on the food served here but they do have a wide variety. I enjoyed my breakfast here the most. I did indulge in spa, which was again nice. The service of this resort is very nice.The resort arranged for us to travel to Mullayanagiri hills, which is the highest peak in Karnataka. The view from both this hill and the resort is a treat to the eyes.
Will definitely love to get back to this place. You can check out an elaborate review about this place in my blog http://myconnectionwithfood.blogspot.com/2012/01/serai-chikmagalur.html
