“Good Resort for a Comfortable Stay - Love to come back...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2011

Resort is quite well maintained and it’s really comfortable to stay particularly for a family or couple. The Resort is very secured and nice to stay. Worth for the money you spent.

Advantages:

1. Food is quite good But please don’t order for Biriyani or Chicken Chukka as it’s does not taste better.
2. Complimentary Breakfast is also quite homely and tastes good.
3. View from the hotel is also very nice as the Deluxe rooms are facing towards the very thick gigantic forest trees.
4. Moreover the Resort staffs are really supportive and they are really doing a great job. You can get in touch with Venkatesh and Raj Mohan they are F&B Executives. They are more supportive in giving you good suggestion for your problem. But for Resort related queries you have to contact Ram Kumar (Manager). He is also a nice person who can resolve your queries.


Minus:

1. This Resort is quite away from the lake approximately 3-4 KM. Bus facilities are available but ONLY on time. NO Auto facilities in Kodaikanal. Only Taxis are available. They will charge 100 Rs for Pick Up / Drop from the Resort to Lake or Kodaikanal Bus Stand Vice versa.
2. Hot Water is available in the morning always but in the other times it's not available. If you want you have to call to the Reception accordingly they will ON the Boiler and in another 20 minutes you will be getting it. A Follow up is required in the other times.


Sightseeing:

No Tourist operator or agents have the plan to make the Sight Seeing complete in a Single day. They all give the plan only for few places daily to visit and not all the places. But we can able to visit all the places in a single day if you have a vehicle or if you rent a vehicle and have the plan to visit all the places in Kodaikanal. Ultimate idea behind this is to earn Money.
This you can able to make it if you have your own vehicle or renting a car on a daily basis and asking them to cover all the places. I hope they will charge accordingly.

Room Tip: Rooms are nice..

Its a very excellent Hotel Newly built, Very-Little Away from the Lake, Breakfast was Excellent. We are Feeling like we are in our home only. They served like we are their relatives. Rooms are very big, neat and clean, Toilets are also very much Clean and good size. Overall, No need to stay else where in Kodaikanal. No, other better option are available.
