We stayed for 3 nights in deluxe room facing forest. It was very nice view of forest and hears birds singing early in the morning. Chooe deluxe rather than superior room. Staffs are aware of guests need and was cooerative except for cab arrangement. They have not noticed time keeping. Waiting at the lobby for cab arriving is aweful and wasting of time. Hotel shoud improve cab arrangement promptly. Also shower room need to be fixed to drain the water properly. The water overflows on the floor. Overall hotel was pleasant to stay but breakfast wasnt that good for non indian. I would suggest a freshly brewed coffee provided along with waffles or sweets. If you want to stay city , this hotel is not recommende, but if you like a quiet and fresh air , this hotel is good for you.

Room Tip: Clean and quiet hotel A little far from the city area, not good for walking distance. Staffs'...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days during December 2011. This is about 1.5 miles from Kodai Lake. The resort is relatively new one. The one thing of note is that the resort is neat and clean. Service is very good. Their breakfast is very good. We tried dinner and that too was very good. Overall a very good place to stay in Kodai. Since the place is around 1.5 miles from Kodai Lake this is not a noisy place.

Me and my family of 4 took a trip to Chenai and decided to stay in a hotel not very far from the city. The Carnival Resort was the best choice we made. The staff, the rooms food and many more was 5 star, and up to perfection. Everybody is friendly and courteous. My kids did not want to return home back to the US. The owner made a presence to make sure we were comfortable and extended hospitality never received before. we will be back soon and do recommend an experience worth the money and stay.

I stayed at this place during 1st week of Oct 2011 with my family. I really enjoyed my stay with my family at this place, particularly the balcony which open up to a great view of nature with woods (canopy trees).

Rooms were neat & tidy and so were the bathroom.

Though its not far away from city centre (about 2 to 3 Kms), but still its built on calm & serene environment and would definetely recommend to my friends.
