“A nice Ooty-Kodaikanal tour but Hotel lacks recreation & terrible internet”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

After reading some good reviews on Tripadvisor , I decided to book an Ooty-Kodaikanal package for 5 days.A deliberate research followed and we zeroed on Antilog Vacations , a famous travel agent for this part. The hospitality & rates offered by them were much lower than what would have costed us , had we done the booking ourselves

Hill Country Resort in Kodaikanal is a nature’s feast. It is a beautiful property surrounded bt villages, lush greens running all across it Many of the views were splendid and some of them absolutely breath taking… I was there for three days with 5 of my friends stayed in 2 regular rooms. The rooms were very clean, up to date with the basic amenities, just that their size was a little small especially with 3 people around.

As I said the ambience in and around the place is really cool, really nice moist soothing weather. The resort is away from the touristy hustle of Kodai town and offers some of the best views from the rooms. Food is amazing, everything from the breakfast to the dinner, we had almost all of our meals there only. There was no shortage of vegetarian options, the sambhar and haryali kababs were wow!! You can always relax in the bar, or play a game of pool, snooker, or TT. Still for a resort not sufficient number of things to offer for recreational activities.

There was free wi-fi internet, but it was a little on-off and slow. There was also an ayurveda spa, although the costs were on the higher side for the packages. One thing I definitely din’t like is the all day music that is played, should be kept limited. One more drawback is that dinner is only available in the buffet. There is no other option, which makes it all the more costly coz it’s already not very cheap the pricings.

Overall we found the Resort beautiful, clean, well maintained. The staff was very helpful, friendly & efficient. There are huge lawns and plenty of space to explore, I wish I had been there longer, deserves a second shot for me.

Amazing tour & great memories of this place

We wanted a nice resort in kodaikanal and opted for hill country. The distance from the bus stand was a turn off but we were amazed when we saw the resort. Very friendly staff, well appointed rooms....and not to forget the food. We opted for the complimentary breakfast and dinner package and thoroughly enjoyed every meal there. The travel desk arranged for pick up drops and sightseeing. I even enjoyed relaxing massages at Sowkhya..the inhouse ayurvedic centre. But the best part was the daily evening entertainments and bonfire.We had so much fun and got to shake our leg a little.It was a terrible feeling leaving the place ..planning to check out their ooty property next. Would definitely recommend this to couples or families looking for a break away from the crowded town.

Hill country resort is both economical and the best in Kodikanal. We went as a couple and breakfast and dinner were complimentary which was unlimited. The food was superb, delicious and excellent. The entire resort was neat, calm and very very big. We felt as if we were in a Foreign country. They maintain it so well. They provided a half a day site seeing trip in a car which was also complimentary. We took the standard room which looked like a deluxe room. The view from the room's french window was exemplary. Such a beautiful and must visit place. I'll can gaurantee that not even a sinlge percent of disappointment in this resort. Love this place!!!!!!!!!

Although the Resort is outside Kodaikanal, it took only about 15 mins to drive to & fro & the Resort had a very good Travel Counter to organize drops & car trips. We found the Resort beautiful, clean, well maintained. The staff was very helpful, friendly & efficient. The food was excellent too. In fact staying a little away from the crowds was a good thing. We had lovely views all around the resort. They had organised some nice entertainment every evening & had some enthusiastic staff ensuring everyone enjoyed their stay. The spa was a plus! For older people all the climbing up & down may be a bit daunting but was actually quite easy & gardens lovely to walk about in. Will definitely recommend this place to others!

We stayed here couple of days, what i was looking for was serene n quite place and so booked this one as its away from city. But when we reached there found that this place is surrounded by villages and it quite noisey. Even on the resort they had music all day long which was quite annoying. even after requesting them to stop it, they refused to:-(. However, i liked the buffet, food was excellent. Enjoyed it.

Room Tip: choose a cottage but comes with a price.
