The people there to name a few Parthipan ,Manikandan...

A very memorable stay at Kodai. The resort was well maintained, though the studio apartments were smaller as compared to the fern hill resort at ooty. But that was not an issue. Staff was well mannered and always helpful. Food was fantastic and delicious. But what really amazed me was the resort's holiday activities. Be it bonfire nights or activities...
