Our experience with Fern Creek in one word is simply "fantabulous". Serene location, clean room, extremely courteous and polite staff, awesome food and the lush green garden simply made our stay awesome. One thing to highlight is, if you stay here, its highly recommended to plan to have food here with the in-house restaurant itself as the food was just great. Simple, tasty and homemad3 kinda feel with a chef who understands whats best. We stayed here for 2 days with our kids and we just loved it. It is certainly on my wishlist again to visit Kodai one more time and if thats true, what is also true is we are definitely gonna be staying again at Fern creek. Cheers Ram

Quaint little place on the fern hills. Quirky decor and well maintained garden sets it apart from any other place. Tents with ample space gives it more of a camping experience. And, to top it all off, the chef Parthiban makes one hell of a lasagna. Definitely not just another hotel and a must stay place if you like to wake up and have a view of greenery. Special thanks to jawahar, eshwaran for making the stay even better.

In a single word our stay in Fern Creek Kodai was "Awesome". The tent was excellent with all the facilities needed to make the stay enjoyable. In fact, they had included a heater as well which was a nice surprise for us. The resort location was serene & had so much greenery yet very near to Kodaikanal centre. Mr.Navaraj(Manager) had helped us in every step of the trip and went to great lengths by even surprising us with a candle light dinner decoration. Special mention to house keeping team for maintaining the room in a pristine state. Chef Parthiban & Chef Ajeesh were very friendly and the food was incredible yet homely. They make food as per our preference. Please don't waste your money in trying out food in local resturants. Special Thanks to Mr. Xavier and Mr. Jawahar for their warm hospitality. If you want to enjoy ur stay with nature and in a private place, fern creek is one of the best option.

Stay at the Fern Creek was simply amazing. Contrary to the regular resorts this one feels very much natural with all its greenery. The tent was amazing. It was fully equipped with luxury wooden furniture and other useful amenities. There was a hammock, wooden logs for chairs and camp fire. The staff are very cordial and professional. The food was amazing too. The overall experience was truly amazing.

We had the best stay at fern creek not only because of the beautiful and superbly maintained tents surrounded by gorgeous flowers and greenery but also because of the top notch service provided by the staff . Both chefs parthiban and Ajeesh were so friendly and even went to the effort of surprising my family with a candle light dinner and decorated the table with a variety of flowers from the garden . All the staff from the security to the gardener were so hospitable and made us feel so welcomed . They did a fantastic job of decorating our room before we came and really made sure we had a great stay !really can’t wait to go back !
