“Best rooms and quiet from the crowd”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Good landscapes and good room service. Deluxe rooms are really good. Enjoyed the stay as well as the arrangements for sight seeing by the staff. Home made chocolates were excellent. Pick-up and drop facility by the hotel was also a good arrangement.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe rooms. They are better than the standard.

Property is not so bad, specially the climate was so good that it made our stay worth-while. Service here was excellent. This was definitely a good overall experience. The spa here was quite bad. As a Club Mahindra member the allotted room was quite ok, not upto great standard, other rooms I think were much better.

Room Tip: go for a Studio

We stayed in this resort as Club Mahindra members. We wanted a pick-up from palani and the same was arranged very well. Check in and room allotment was smooth, though we could not get a front facing room. The studio is spacious well furnished and all gadgets are in perfect working condition. Rooms are cleaned very well everyday. Linen is washed and clean. Their biggest asset is their kitchen. Food is very good. Buffet spread reasonable and adequate. All the staff is very courteous and helpful. Special mention of Mr Mohanan, Resort Manager, is a must for his helpful interaction with us. The resort is about 6km from Kodai town, hence commuting is difficult. We have suggested that a van be provided for the same. Garden and land scaping is excellent. Music in the garden is melodious and comforting.

Room Tip: Insist on room with front view.

We stayed for 3 nights towards the end of May, in deluxe suite. The property is very well maintained. The location is not all that great, in that there are no nice valley views, no mist wafting up to the resort etc. But it's away from the city noise, so it's quiet and nice.

The buffet spread is pretty good, with lots of variety. Quality on exotic foods varied a bit, but was good on the whole. Staff, specially the restaurant staff, was extremely helpful and very nice.

One of the 3 nights they organised a good evening of games around the bonfire. The other nights not many people turned up, even though the resort had lots of people - I think the problem is they don't advertise the evening events properly, so a lot of people don't even find out.

The suite was ok, though the rooms were a bit small. TV had all Eng movie channels, no Hindi movies, no English entertainment, and some Hindi entertainment.

Entertainment: TT, carrom, some other board games, indoor playing area for toddlers, a small library, and some paid games like foozball etc. Swings for older kids outdoors. Overall, nice.

The size of the resort isn't very big. Having stayed at resorts in Munnar, Idukki, Coorg etc, it seemed too small. If you like to walk around, there isn't a lot of space in the resort, and nothing outside the resort.

Cons:
1. They play music throughout the property most of the day. Sometimes, it's loud. In a place like this, specially mornings and evenings, one would prefer to hear the sounds of nature. Even on request, they didn't turn it off. I think one other reviewer has had the same problem. W
2. Entertainment options need to be better. They have a badminton court, but one has to buy the rackets from them - that's stupid - they should give them for free or rent them out. They have a Playstation, but it was 'getting repaired'.
3. They charged for toothpaste, which seemed petty for a resort priced this high - hopefully someone in the management of the resort is reading this.

Room Tip: suites have balconies. Rooms don't. Cottages have sit outs. Suite bedrooms have no space for ext...

We were 2 couples with kids & chose 2 Deluxe suites for our 3-night stay, as the deluxe cottage (with 2 bedrooms) had only 1 room with attached toilet & 2nd room with common Toilet in the hall.
Our check-in begun on a rough note as were alloted 2 suites in 2 different buildings & we were upset with this. However, their staff shifted us to 2 adjacent rooms the next day. (R9 & R10).
Both suites had excellent views.
Resort Location is 5-6 kms away from heart of Kodai, but i personally feel that if you are stayting in a resort, you need to enjoy it & Hill Country has many options for that.
A decent games room / a mini library / a really nice Shuttle court / swings for kids in lawn/ infant activity centre / spa centre / etc.
The silver lining was the Buffet - breakfast & dinner. Just Excellent. We relished the food & use to look forward for same every day.
The rooms were spacious / well laid with balcony & had a nice & very comfortable bed - with bedside tables on both sides.
The resort had excellent landscaping all across & provided a very soothing effect to our stay.
Staff was warm, cordial & service was very good all around.

There are certain downsides too.
- The toilet and shower area are really small & with old tiles / sanitary / bath fittings. In Short, it just does not complement the suite.
- There is no hair dryer provided which is unthinkable in such expensive / high end resort situated at a hill station.
- The geyser was of low capacity - so Hot water use to run out soon.
- Toilet accessories like shampoo / soap / shower cap / etc were inadequate & of very poor quality.
- No Television in bedroom in suites & even no proper seating area in hall where LCD TV is placed. Just 2 single seat sofas placed seperately.
- No Kitchen equipment & hence the kitchenette counter in suite room made no sense.
- Room Service food items were exorbitantly expensive.
- Bar Service was not operational.

Choose the place if you need a resort experience & avoid it if you need to check the touristic locations in & around Kodaikanal.
