No wonder why villa retreat receives such a good rating here. These guys are fantastic and they surprise you with sweet little things. The chef is good and the menu card there is just a formality - You can ask for any dish you wish to eat and you get it in half an hour, provided you wish something practical. The ambiance is great especially the breakfast in the lawn overlooking the clouds. in fact you get clouds into your room when you open the windows.
I highly recommend this resort.
Jared and Peter - you guys are awesome. Continue your good work.

On the flipside, the resort has no bonfire. The large front space could have been utilised better as a shuttle court or something similar.

Room Tip: Choose 101 or 108. However, I guess the hotel policy doesn't allow you to choose the room when y...

the hotel is located in a very nice place . The staff is very proffessional. As promised the we got the room within 10mins of our arrival to hotel. The rooms are clean with balcony giving the excellent view of the nature. you can have the food at hotel itself and that to served hot. just want to mention the tomoto/onion uttapam prepared by Mr.Peter was really "excellent". you can get the taxi for traval from the hotel itself. vehicles are in good condition and clean. Drivers are friendly and they report in time. you have the Wi- Fi facility at the dining room which u can avail by talking to staff, its free. In a summary the best place to stay and where u get the excellent service

I am an IT guy. I went to Kodai in aug-2012. I booked a classic room in Villa Retreat. The view from my room was 'like a dream'. It was at top floor and gives an awesome view of mountain ranges on vast flat land as far as u can see... clouds coming into ur room :) above all the cool weather adds to ur mood. U can enjoy ur breakfast,lunch n dinner all in a beautiful garden under sky just at the edge of the mountain n between flowing clouds.. simply romantic n perfect for a couple...in the arms of mother nature.
Felt the same warmth and perfection in their service even.

Everything about this place is awesome... well almost... The only reason that this place got a 4 out of 5 instead of 5 on 5 was because, we thought that the place wasn't sufficient value for money...

The check-in process was a breeze and was very quick and efficient.

We stayed in a semi-classic room (@ around Rs. 3,900 per night which included breakfast worth Rs. 300) in off-peak season.

The room was quite small but had a lovely view of the valley. The interiors of the room were quite pleasant though. The bathroom was small too (around 6 ' x 3' 6") and atmost 1 person could occupy it at a time. We could hear noises from the adjoining room too (at times) and this was a little bit of a turn-off...

Everything else about the resort was awesome... amazing service, good food (we had a couple of breakfasts)... lovely views of the valley...

Overall, I would recommend this place...
