Such wonderful crew and great and safe ambiance. No word to say the taste of the food. Wish to have 2 stomach :). And the hotel staffs are very polite, lovely and very caring. We unanimously decided to have our 25th reunion in Hotel Kodai International. Hats off for the service, food, ambiance.

This was my first time in this hotel. From the beginning we had a wonderful experience. Front office people were so helpful in guiding us with the room selection. I must mention Mr.Rohan from front office was so dedicated that he was often in touch with us for any requirements. Food was so good and we really miss it now.... More

We booked this hotel for our 3 nights/4days (deluxe room) stay especially for their food in kodaikanal.Mostly on the hill station/tourist places we can't expect as such good food (in-terms of flavour) (South Indian Cuisine) but Kodai International will never disappoint you,but a bit pricey. This hotel has a lot of open space for children with a beautiful play garden... More
