I loved my stay in hotel villa retreat
I had my stay in a family suite for three days and its truly awesome
The staff including the restaurant people are truly very helpful and hard working and thanks to them for making changes in their schedule for us e.g dinner timing is till 9 but for us on our request they served me at 10.
I end by saying if in kodaikanal stay at villa retreat

Hi travellers

I am happy to write this review about villa retreat,, it was a real treat when we reached villa,
the hospitality was good,javid is the person who was co-ordinating with us from the day we entered till we left, the standard room was the only room whcih was available we planned to book, no one believes tat it was too good,neat and clean(especially rest room).

Food was tasty and served at the right time without any delay,Satish was the person who was supplying us the food to our room,

nature tour which we asked for was real highlight,,,,,,driver stephen showed us all the wonderful and stunning place we really enjoyed.

overall i would say that villa retreat really made our vacation an awesome one.

Thanks one and all

especially the owners son, who did not behaved as if he is owner but moved friendly with us and took care of everyone over there .

Wonderful place to stay and enjoy kodaikanal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Room Tip: Please try to stay in standard room as well if you really want some privacy like Do not disturb...

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Retreat for 4 days in June. We absolutely enjoyed our stay! The staff at the Villa are extremely courteous, efficient and pleasant to interact with. On day one we reached the resort quite early in the morning and we were given a nice lounge to freshen up and change before heading to breakfast, which I thought was a nice gesture.
The resort offers a lovely view of the valley. We stayed in the Classic Room on day one and moved to the Deluxe room the next day due to availability issues. The Classic Room has a beautiful valley view. Both rooms were neat and clean, however they were both not too big. Since it was just the two of us, we were quite comfortable. Food was quite nice especially their breakfast which sets a nice tone to the rest of your day! The resort offers one day tours to nearby spots - we had to make use of them since we did not have our own vehicle. The cab drivers were very informative and courteous.
One issue is they don't take credit cards - I read this in previous reviews and specifically called to check and was told that the machine worked now and that credit cards would be accepted. However, on day one we were informed that payment had to be made in cash because the machine wasn't working! ATM's are available nearby.
I would like to specifically mention Mr.Javed who took very good care of us and ensured our stay was comfortable! Thanks to the entire team of Villa Retreat! :-)

Room Tip: Classic rooms have the best views; however the Deluxe seemed more spacious and comes with a balcony!

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?
