The Serai at Bandipur, is one of the best ways to en­joy the re­gion, of­fer­ing you mod­ern day com­forts in the heart of tiger coun­try. You can sign up for a jun­gle sa­fari, go on a na­ture walk or spend a day sight­see­ing in nearby Ooty. Thirty five sprawl­ing acres have been con­verted into a lux­ury re­sort for get­ting as close as pos­si­ble to the striped cat and his wild friends. The dé­cor evokes a gam­ing lodge, com­plete with faux an­i­mal skin ac­cents. Check into one of the vil­las or rooms that come with a pri­vate gar­den. Al­though the rooms are spa­cious and taste­fully deco- rated, the bath­rooms are the real high­light. Un­der a large sky­light, you have a view of the sky, tree tops that com­ple­ment the rain shower. At night, it gets so quiet, even the crick­ets seem to have gone to bed. Get­ting there You can take a bus from Koyem­bedu or take the Chen­nai Mysore Shatabdi Ex­press
