5/5 Excellent

I don't know what some reviewers are complaining about. The Serai is excellent. BTW I have stayed at Jungle Lodges too..which is also good but overpriced The staff are very courteous, helpful ; the rooms are beautifully designed and extremely clean; the food is good, tasty and can be very filling. The safaris were well coordinated with Jungle Lodges. It was priced relatively well. Only wish I had more time to spend there.

4/5 Good

Nice but needs improvement to get the "Aha" moment

Location is superb...We stayed in Waterfront Villa which when you see from outside does not give you a great feeling however rooms were well appointed & just in front of the river with amazing view. The quality of food & hygiene needs utmost care. We had poor experience both the time with insects in our food. You can see lots of insects around the fruit & desert at any time. The hotel should look to install Air curtains as it is a must to have in such kind of locations..Overall stay was good
