The location was excellent midst the hustle bustle. It was corona wave 2 but the management had taken all the precautionary measures. Rooms were neatly maintained and sanitized. A big shout to the chef where in the food was tasty and room service was excellent. Definitely a foot of photographic memory to cherish upon. It is located 6 km away from Kodai lake so if you want to buy something plan it well. Also the main phenomena in the cool climate "BAR" which is a big miss.

Great Trails Review Writing this review sitting in the open balcony of the Timber Chalet room with an awesome view of greenery and foggy skies. What more does one need after coming from hot and humid Mumbai? Today is day 7 here, yes, you read it right, we are here for a workcation and so far the experience has been great. Starting from the check in with Sathya and team to being shown the rooms, answering all our questions politely, being ready to help with a smile, housekeeping by Mayappan (not sure of the spelling), daily room cleaning by S Bala Kumar, Chef Pradipji taking care of daily food requirements and front office manager Mr Ameen for any problem at any time - all has been great so far. I wanted a yoga mat and it was arranged for. We needed a extra table to work during the week and as promised before check in, it was done. The dongles we had carried had no network here, but luckily the WiFi is good and we could manage our work in the last week. The resort is huge and hats off to the entire team for maintaining it so well. Rooms are kept extremely clean and so are all the open surrounding areas. There are beautiful plants with colourful flowers all over. They have an excellent spa, just that it’s tooo pricey. The room service is also good, considering that the staff has to come over a distance of almost four to five floors. They have a sky lift which is a blessing for sure. It’s IPL time, so they have a big screen in the garden area with a small bonfire being lit each evening. So all in all a great stay, just one negative is that it’s far from the main market area so if you are tired of the food here, you have to spend time and money both to go to the market to eat. The food here is not bad, but I feel it could have been better and little less expensive too.

Wonderful Experience at GRT Great Trails Kodaikanal. The Timber Chalets were very beautiful and the amenities were very comfortable. The wooden cabin was luxurious and provide great views of the hills. Evening entertainment was very enjoyable and children had a great time. Food at the café was tasty, bfast had a good spread as well. Highly recommended!
