Ambience and atmosphere is the biggest selling point for this property. location is the highlight as it is tucked away from the city traffic but well within the quick reachability to the city and other tourist attractions. Coco Suite we stayed was quite spacious and private balcony is an added attraction. Food provided was quite good and tasted homely. It has its own limitations but those are ignorable. All in all its a perfect spot for couples , familes and groups to enjoy their vacation in kodaikanal in a silent way as possible.

The Location of the Property is very good. The ambiance and the staffs are really friendly. You have to book in advance as there’s just 6 cottages . The stay is very comfortable. The food is also very homey. If you are lucky you can see Wild Bison’s roaming around the property itself.

Really a sweet place which glides in with your mind and mood , standing between beautifull landscapes , obviously creating an archaic experience providing an "im home" feeling ,there are sections of rooms to choose from according to your taste, and ease of travelling to near by places is also an added advantage, the food is clean and crispy :) , the ambience Priderock offers is incredibly enjoyable, the rooms are well build ,well maintained and totally hygenic and provides great privacy, the melodic chirp of the birds also proves it :) .
Highly recommended ** Love that place, keep up the good work!
with looots of blessings and love...

Strictly about the Jungle resort of Surya Holidays
Booking.com doesnt show the actual pictures of the Budget room available .Rooms were not clean and are very small literally no place to put the 3rd bed(but we were charged). Beds,Screen provided for the 3rd person was very dirty. No Inverters only generators and became pitch dark when there was no power and had to inform the owner to get emergency lamps and no intercom so had to call the owner for every small thing. Location is very remote and cannot be reached without your own transport.You will be unable to explore the city after 6 as it gets really dark to reach the resort. Wifi doesnt work and Jio modems are provided only when requested. Cupboards looked like junk piece of wood. TV in one of the room didnt work and they have only free channels even if it worked.
Dinner had to be informed prior and they charge 400rs/person , which becomes pretty expensive if we want basic food.
I'm not expecting more .It is just that I have seen decent rooms for 1000 rs also.After paying 2500+ per room , I would definitely expect at least basic facilities.
Kindly take a room near the lake otherwise it becomes very secluded.
Families please avoid the Budget rooms . You will get better rooms for 2500 they charge.

It was horrible experience when we reached hotel on 26th December 2019 in the evening, the owner denied the booking... When I had shown him the booking confirmation voucher which was received from Agoda, he didn't allotted a room infact the owner informed that there is no room available and the booking was not confirmed. It was understood that he had sold the rooms who gave him better charges

The way his behavior was I felt that he has the only one Hotel in Kodai..

Finally, I had to book other room at small hotel.

Not recommended this property at all...

I went by all the reviews and booked a 3 day stay in Surya Holidays. Their website had some fantastic photos and I can honestly say that I fell for them. Soon after booking my cottage, I was greeted by the most unprofessional mail - ' ......COCUS NUCIFERA IS AVAILABLE, PLEASE PUT MONEY.'
This should have warned me about things to come. When I finally reached the place, I was mesmerized by the surrounding view...truly breath-taking. Then came shock 1 - the wooden floor boards were loose. Shock 2 - food was absolutely inedible. The most inferior quality rice. Shock 3 - the water from the taps was like liquid chocolate. I was told by the staff that the filter had just been cleaned and it should settle in some time. Many litres of water later, there was no noticeable difference in the colour (I still have the photographs). I had had enough and decided to check out. And as luck had it, I was also called back to my home town (but a little later I found out that I did not have to go back). The manager who I spoke to almost threatened me stating that I had booked the room for 3 days and because of this, he was losing business. He demanded that even though I was vacating in a couple of hours, I should pay the entire amount. After much haggling and the desire to leave the place, I agreed to settle for a lesser amount and left the place.
A traumatic experience indeed.

Firstly, if there was an option of a negative rating I would have surely given it. If you are thinking about spending quality cosy time with your spouse.... go elsewhere. Here are some of the marvellous things I experienced in the few hours I managed to stay there.
Don't look for a road coz there's none. The place is as secluded as it gets.
No professional and dependable staff. It scared me when they did not ask us to even check in or validate our identity.
When asked them to point us to the reception, they directed us to a laundry room near a small cook house and a room with 2 tables and 8 chairs they called dining hall/restaurant!!
I had booked the queen suite for which I paid 3.9k!! Well, it dint have any of the facilities mentioned. There was no A/C, no fruit / snack baskets, no tea / coffee maker, no DVD player and no wifi in the hotel as mentioned. The toiletries consisted of a lifebuoy hand wash which was used and dirty (yucks) and a baby soap.
The food was simply bad. They didn't have any menu and the campfire mentioned was too dirty. There was no sense of security due to which I could not stay the course and left the same day.
All in all it was a horrible experience. You can get way better deals for the same price.
Forgot to mention..... there is no way one can confirm if it was the same Surya Holidays as there was no board, banner or sign to indicate it as the same. Please never book there.

The hotel does not even have a proper road. Its just 6 cottages inside a forest area.If you are a veggie, food is pathetic. There is no menu. John is the caretaker, who will cook on demand.In the washrooms, they supply dark brown muddy water, which they say is natural water.For any kind of complaint, John says- "Zohrab ko Bolo", who we never saw. The reception area has clothes hanging for drying. There are bisons and dogs in the estate, so you cant roam around much. Room has no mini bar, coffee maker, safe etc. No complimentary water bottle. The only positive point is that it is surrounded by scenic beauty.

No doubt the view is good, and the rooms are spacious too.
View from room was really awesome until the clouds took over :-(
The list of goodies ends here.

Location - Far from center, and not easily accessible. The road from the entrance of this estate to the main hotel is dangerously murky. No street lights too.

Food - nothing to expect. The fish curry i ordered caused stomach upset. Breakfasts very as cold as the weather !.

Service - To get something, you have to shout out for someone or go to there office/kitchen all by yourself ! Because there is no intercom/bell.
The people and the owner are no doubt willing to provide you good service. But was not very effective though.

They can definitely do better than this.

Yes only one cottage available like that but you may need to book it early. It's called the King and Queen size rooms in Surya cottage. Also it has a wonderful view of the lake.
