The Serai Chikmagalur, Southern India

The Serai Chikmagalur sits in the rural splendour of India’s coffee country, a land of sprawling green plantations, ancient ruins and enchanting temples.

Accommodation at the resort consists of 29 sophisticated villas with wonderful amenities such as private pools. You can opt to stay in the exclusive Presidential Villa, which features an expansive, separate living area, stylish bedrooms and both a private swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. 

Hiking enthusiasts will be delighted with the array of trekking routes surrounding the resort, however you can also visit temples or simply relax in the sunshine. Why not take the opportunity to learn about the region’s coffee making process – all the way from bean to cup – on a plantation tour, which can be followed by a rejuvenating coffee bean scrub at the Oma Spa. 

Make the Serai Chikmagalur a part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to India, and you will enjoy delicious meals at the highland-top Odyssey restaurant, taking in sensational views as you dine.

And after, you can sip on a drink at the Blue Sky Lounge Bar as the sun sinks below the forested hills.
