About Coffee Day Resorts

Coffee Day Hotels & Resorts was incorporated in the year 2008 and launched their first property soon after, under the brand name ‘The Serai’ in Chikmagalur district of Karnataka. The Turkish interpretation of the word Serai is ‘a palace of the sultan’, the Persian version speaks of comfortable, accommodative environs for intrepid travelers to rest and recuperate after their travels across inhospitable terrain. ‘The Serai Resort’ is the perfect blend of both these definitions offering a tranquil oasis of luxury and peace, to refresh mind and body; a well deserved respite from modern day travails, trials and tribulations!

The Serai experiences are widely spread from a getaway to the coffee country ensconced in the verdant coffee plantations to relaxing and rejuvenating by the water front amidst wilderness. The Serai chain of Resorts crafts the line between the stressful and the serene, the commonplace and the exclusive and resonates with the positive vibes which nature brings. Being true to the philosophy of ‘The Serai’, the company will soon be launching more such experience destinations to make you reconnect with the long forgotten ways.
