5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2012

We just had been to Kodaikanal on vacation and had booked a room in Villa Retreat. We had a memorable experience here, notable mentions -
1) Excellent location, Bryant Park, Kodai Lake, Bus stop, Shops .. all within 5 mins walking distance plus amazing valley view
2) Very clean and spacious rooms
3) The staff are super polite and genuinely cared for your comfort
4) The restaurant made fresh food on order and very tasty too
5) I was here with my wife and 1 yr old, and they prepared special meals for my kid on request
5) They arranged for all pickups and sight-seeing in comfortable cars
Overall I would say it was bang for the buck and I would definitely come and stay here again

Super hospitality by the administration. Absolutely fantastic. Great View brilliant stay and super service. Special mention of Shoiab, Javed, Satish and Stephen (I'll go back especially for him for taking me to places that were out of the world he should get 10 stars for his service!!!).

We will be back very soon, good going and thank you Team Villa Retreat!!!

Self alongwith 2 of my friends took a break from our routine and stayed at the Retreat for 2 days on June 5 & 6th and thoroughly enjoyed the service & especially I must mention the name of the Hotel staff SATISH who relentlessly did take care of us with GOOD ROOM SERVICE. Overall all the staff (including the interns) were courteous to us. I would recommend travellers to check in here for a nice stay.

Villa retreat seemed to have the best views in Kodai, it is right on Coakers Walk and as long as there is no mist you can see for miles. The staff were excellent, friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the cottage which I felt needed freshening up but as there were 3 of us it was very spacious. Bathroom was very clean and 24hr hot water. We saw the other rooms and the best were definitely the classic rooms (just too small for the 3 of us). I felt that even in low season the rooms were slightly overpriced though. The food was nice and if the weather is ok you can sit out and look out over the hills - beautiful.
