If you are driving down to kodai, this is a fantastic place to stay. It is away from bustle of city, with lot of open space, lovely view and natural beauty. At the same time city is just 3 kms drive from here. Rooms are spacious and maintained spic and span. Our family of four was very comfortable with an... More

Fantastic view and homelike place, considerate team with perfect service and advise! We've not only enjoyed our time at the Surya holiday inn properly speaking, but also got to know the surrounding area thanks to Sorab's kind advise. Really looking forward to return and stay for longer time.

Wonderful stay with family. The location is superb, isolated from all the fuss of a crowded tourist spot. It's ideally located on the middle of shivaganga estate with a fantastic view of the kodai lake. All the 5 cottages are overlooking the lake and one can enjoy the beauty from the balcony. The rooms and bed are spacious enough to... More

One of the best scenic spots available in Kodai, the lake view cottages are perfect for travellers looking for solitude as well as fun. Sorab known for his warm, friendly personality and his staff John and Suneesh, ensure a homely stay with good home made food. The bonfire and barbeque at night was wonderful. A truly memorable stay. I've been... More
