This resort is located in a beautiful setting in Kodai. Even though it is only 1.5 km from the town center, it seems to be virtually inside a forest. It is laid out very well and appears to be lovingly maintained. The cottages are old-fashioned and not very posh, but they are nonetheless very comfortable.
The service is excellent - in particular Mr Ruban. He allowed us a quick refund of a part amount, when we had to curtail our stay short by a day due to "Bharat Bandh". The hotel provides good reading material also - which is quite unusual.
To sum up, do stay there! Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups. We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions. Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50% discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays. Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more less
