Our 6 youngsters were accommodated in a small single room cottage next to the main house within the compound. We were not feeling like going for sleep because of pleasant weather and camp-fire on & on... My uncle... More

We hired the entire resort for a family trip. In fact it was short of capacity for our huge number but supremely cooperative management accommodated us and without compromising any of the fun. We felt home while cherishing every moment of this stay day-n-night. That sweet-tempered young old-man in the kitchen had 'mohabbat' to cook and feed our kids. Classic... More

I stayed there in an Independent cottage which was pretty cool as no one will disturb you during your stay. Food was tasty not much options though. Its located 15-20 mins walk from kodai lake this might be a positive point for some people and negative for others. They have a fireplace in the cottage too.

Hospitality is taken very seriously by the Dalethorpe Family and finding someone waiting and escorting you personally on arrival came as a beautiful surprise, A beautiful homestay with well appointed rooms and even a secluded cottage for those seeking a little solitude and privacy. We split our visit between the cottage and deluxe rooms and loved both options, Great homemade... More
