This was one of the best stays with our family with a group of 20. Hospitality was too good and every staff could be mentioned for it. Specially kalee sir and Sabina took special efforts to make our stay comfortable. Food was too good.... we liked the varieties of the buffet spread. Sea foods were really worth mentioning on taste. Still craving for the white chocolate cheesecake. Would definitely be a holiday spot to consider again...

Tamara never fails to impress us . Amazing hospitality . In times of corona we never felt so safe. All the Safety measures taken so well and top most service was provided. Chef Ranjit and chef Prince were impeccable. Served us amazing vegan food aswell. Staff at breakfast, lunch and dinner were taking such good take that we felt being at home . New place to stay and Kodai will see us often because of Tamara .

The stay was comfortable but the view from the room was a bit restricted. The hotel front desk management were cooperative and understanding. They have 3 different settings for restaurants where in you get all types of cuisines. Chefs are accomodative and serve food to the liking of their customers. The best part of this visit was the jungle tour which also involved bike tour for the customer. This bike trip will take you to various spots in Kodai and you will definitely feel energetic and relaxed after the trip. Fortunately for us the guide came back before our last day of stay and we could avail this. We met Ebi, our driver who has many skills apart from great driving experience. He is also an excellent photographer. In this whole bike trip, he made numerous videos and took photos of us and in the end even managed to edit and give us an amazing memorandum for this trip. We are very thankful to him. Everyone going to this hotel should go on this trip for this experience. The bike trip was managed and executed by our guide Mr. Ravi who is very knowledgeable and had extensive details of flora and fauna around Kodai. This guy showed us around the forests and also some parts of the city. I would definitely rate this place amongst the best I have stayed in.

My partner and I were booked with another resort. We decided to explore Tamara's breakfast options. We were pleasantly surprised to see a vast spread, considering the hill station is barely accessable to certain exotic vegetables. We decided to go back for dinner that night. Unfortunately, my partner had a bad fall, as soon as the order was placed. He was trying to get ciggerate from his car when he missed his step and fell. We realised that he had some serious injury when his ankles began to swell. At this point, most of the staff, the manager, Mr. Kannan, the front desk staff, had reached out to us, at the outdoor bonfire area. They went out of their way to help us reach a hospital, since my partner couldn't drive. They've hand held us even at the hospital by calling us constantly, waiving our dinner order charges, providing their own car and driving our car to our resort. I am amazed at their hospitality which supersedes the formal and touches a guest's heart and soul, like it's touched ours. My partner and I have sworn to go back once the lockdown ends. Kudos to the team.

We visited the Tamara Kodai mid April for my parents 50th Anniversary and stayed for four nights. From the get go the communication was prompt, polite and helpful. Email updates and booking was seamless. Backend team assisted in transfer to and from Madurai Airport. Payment links were prompt and most payment was contactless, check out was efficient. Mr Kaleeswaran was our first point of contact and remained helpful throughout our stay, from check in to check out. The property is beautiful, rooms are comfortable in fact almost luxurious, well thought out with plug points and amenities aplenty. The in room dining had a varied menu and we sampled every different cuisine, quantity of food was large and great to taste as well, In fact we hardly stepped out for any meal except breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, this was the most efficient breakfast buffet I've ever been to in any hotel across many countries. The staff are prompt, thoughtful and efficient. A wonderful way to start the day. Sufficient activities like sight seeing, archery, table tennis and pool to pass time. The staff went out of their way to make the anniversary special, a cake on the house that was delicious and the rooms decorated by the house keeping staff was a lovely touch. What stood out most for me was the hospitality, every staff wishing you good morning or evening as they pass you by. Always a warm smile. Service was impeccable and exuding warmth every step of the way. It truly was a wonderful holiday and I'd like to take the time to specially mention and thank the following staff. Mr Kaleeswaran, Ms Reena Singh (both helped at the front office) Ebi for all the activities and the safest most comfortable driving around Kodai Sharmila and Sudeep at In room dining for entertaining my requests Synthiya for the decorations which were special Rajshekar for the wonderful start to our day at the breakfast buffet (Samosas packed for our car ride back was much appreciated thanks!) Also a mention Sree and Sabina. Looking forward to visiting Tamara again soon!
