Beautiful property! Excellent Staff, chefs, and food. Very clean, cozy, and inviting. The rooms were beautiful! Too many kids, sometimes they were very uncooperative and loud, running around the food area, both dangerous and annoying. Maybe a separate section for people with younger kids or time. Was hard to enjoy a quiet dinner with my husband. Staff needs to wear deodorant and fresh clothes. Maybe uniforms that are dri-fit, allowing them to sweat and not absorb odor. It's not their fault which hot climate and running around they are going to sweat, uniforms need to account for that and hygiene needs to be taught to them. Staff needs to have knowledge about the local area, we could not find any reliable information on where we can go sightseeing. Why would you not serve mango in mango season? Need more activities on-premises, it rained every day, it would be nice to have other options on the resort such as cooking, dance, meditation classes etc. The room for drivers is not good, very dirty and lots of alcohol, our poor driver had to sleep in the car. Overall excellent property, except for the above few items would definitely go again.

We visited Tamara Kodai and had the most memorable experience. The courtesy extended by the manager Mr.Suresh and chef Mr.Ranjith made us feel at home during our stay. Mr.Ravi, our tour guide showed us some brilliant spots with nature at its unspoilt best! The nature walk and cycling experience was wonderful. Mr.Bakiyam kept the children entertained with his buggy ride tour around the property. Our housekeeping attendant Rakesh went out of his way to ensure our room was neat and cozy. All in all a wonderful stay!

Had an amazing experience with The Tamara Kodai on 2 night couple stay. The rooms were clean and had a great ambience to it. This is definitely a 5 star!! Buggy services were also available from reception / restaurant to our rooms. All the staffs were humble and the hospitality was very good. Special mention to Mani & Ashim for surprising us with our bed decoration when we asked for their room cleaning, it was an additional treat for more than we asked for. The food was very good here and the restaurant staffs were really approaching and it was well managed. We had other indoor games for leisure. From reception to rooms, Tamara gave us everything that we expected here. Thanks Team Tamara Kodai for giving us a wonderful and exciting experience during our stay.

But ever since i went to Tamara for the first time for cofee , it was love at first sight ! My husband said why don’t we stay there for a night . We did , actually two ! Just mind blowing ! From service to child activities to just serving with a smile ! Tamara has it spot on ! Now they are like family . Mr. Prince F&B executive makes us feel so special and treats us like we are family . This time we were mostly attended by Jina cutest (u can see her pic) and ever smiling and ready to please ! And Chef Prince another Fantastic person who whips up all the yumminess and walks extra miles to please kids choices ! Customised pop corn ( how cute is that ) Every single time Tamara Kodai gets better and it’s our go to place ! Safe to say you haven’t seen Kodai completely till you have experienced Tamara Kodai !

Would love to come back Thank you to the entire team. Thank you to Tamara and entire staff for helping us making beautiful memories. Thank you to Travelexchange for organising the entire trip. Ebi drove us around and he was brilliant. Thank you Kartik for organising the local trip. Ramesh and the rest of the housekeeping staff were brilliant esp when we had monkeys in our room as we had left the balcony doors open 🙈 Restaurant personnel were so warm and lovely. I remember a few names Pari, Vidya ,Dhanalakshmi were so attentive to us. Food was brilliant and the chef was so good that he altered a few dishes for us. Mary at store was very helpful.

So happy that i chose this property for my husband's birthday as a surprise. Wonderful ambience, a calm zen feeling throughout the property, very clean and hygiene especially for a ocd person like me, excellent food, amazing staffs who never fail to greet you with a warm smile whenever you walk past them and what not. A 10/10 experience. Special mention to the following staffs who made our entire stay a memorable one: Manager Prince - I had arranged a surprise candle light dinner for my husband and he made sure everything went as per the plan. The entire clan of staffs made sure that my husband didn't get to know about it and helped me maintain the surprise till the very last minute. Puni- He was our personal butler for the candle light dinner. Excellent hospitality. He made us so comfortable and planned the arrival of each course perfectly. Akash- Activity co-ordinator- He was proactive in letting us know about the activities taking place there. A kind warm staff. Velankanni- our buggy driver who made us feel at home as soon as we arrived at the property. He volunteered to click some pictures for us after our checkout wearing a big smile the entire time.

We had a wonderful stay at this property nestled far from the chaos of Kodaikanal town. The luxury suites were outstanding and the spread at the dinner buffet was overwhelming. Special thanks to Syed Kusugal, Manager -Unique Guest Experiences, whose deep knowledge of the environs made our trip truly memorable. On his advice, we explored the ancient (2500 years old) Poomborai Murugan temple and Mannavanur lake and the forest drive was really wonderful!
