“Simply Fantastic.....!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

We had been at Villa retreat between 4th-8th May 2012, for honeymoon.... & I must say these were the most unforgettable days of our lives... The beauty of Kodai, the perfect location of Villa retreat, combined with wonderful staff (must mention Javeed & our driver, Mr. Ishwar), careful hospitality, nice food & precise arrangements made every moment of our stay a wonderful one & we still feel we BELONG to Kodai & Villa retreat... No doubt that I will be there again & recommend it to my pals for sure... Thanks a lot.. God bless...!!

Room Tip: Go for the Classic rooms on first floor...they have the greatest view...

Nice view is the highlight. Relatively unique feel to the place, as good a location as you can get in kodaikanal...but retreats don't have a 9 am check-out. Nor do they rush someone to the door at 8:45 to see if you're packed and ready. Middling food, unimpressive furniture and bathrooms. Maybe I was just cranky?

My stay at Villa retreat has been a memorable experience due to the scenic location, courteous service and excellent food. Staffs including the receptionist , Mr. Javeed, and the driver who took us for sight seeing, Mr. Stphen, are very much helpful and pleasing. It is situated in Coakers Walk itself, which makes it pleasant experience.

Regards

R Anand.

We booked a 1 night stay at the Villa Retreat June 2-3 for three adults in the family suite. I received an email telling me that the family suite was unavailable and that we would have to share a deluxe room. We were ok with this. At first look the room was clean, smelled nice and overall a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of this medium sized local tourist spot. We settled in for the night and that's when we realized the rooms downfall. The bedroom, located adjacent to the dining hall share a wall with the kitchen. We couldn't fall asleep as the kitchen staff was up late doing dishes and fulfilling the needs of other visitors. When the kitchen noise finally died down, the local dogs began to fight over the kitchen garbage that must have been located near the kitchen. At one point I felt the dogs were in the room with us they we so loud! Somewhere I the early morning sleep was achieved only to awake around 5 am as the kitchen staff began to prepare for breakfast. Not a room to have if peace and tranquility or sleeping in are what you are looking for. The room was spacious even for 3 adults, however the mattress they gave us to put on the floor for our third guest left much to be desired. Perhaps a cot or raised mattress would have been a bit better. The views from the hotel were phenomenal and really made us feel like we were in a retreat. Next time we know not to stay next to the dining hall.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the deluxe room adjacent to the dining hall.
