“Good hotel, decent place”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

Kodai International is one of the few good hotels that you see when you enter Kodaikanal - though it is a bit far from the Kodai lake, the staff are cordial. Rooms are clean and the newer ones are quite spacious. We were initially given one of the cottages on the ground floor, however with the entry of a rat and a frog, we had to force them to give us a better and safer room. Some of the cottages can be stuffy. The food was decent and the grounds and gardens give you ample opportunity to relax. Overall - a good choice.

No doubt its a decent , ok sorts, but look out for hotels near the lake or up in the hills. Saying so , because the view from top is amazing, not from this hotel.
Breakfast spread was great! Restaurant was hopeless, takes his own time. But room service is good.
Rooms are not maintained so well.

Kodai International is a good property with lots of activities for kids & adults alike. The hotel management has attempted to keep the surroundings closest to nature with beautiful and rare birds, lots of plants and trees, etc. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and hygienic. However, the food served in the restaurant attached to the hotel is not that great and is quite expensive. Also, the hotel is located at some distance from the main market area in Kodai and that adds to the travel cost. Overall, a decent hotel but does not warrant a second visit.

Room Tip: Go for rooms on the first floors facing the garden.

Although I did not enjoy kodaikanal, the time spent at kodai international somewhat made up for the miserable time we had in kodai . The staff were excellent and the food/service was pleasant. The hotel is on a huge property with a beautiful garden, kids play area, basketball court, cricket nets, waterfall & excellent spa.


Kodai is a over crowded place with bad food. Its not worth visiting there except for the kodai international.
