Stayed there for two nights in April 2015. As per my knowledge the hotel has a huge outdoor which is maintained very well. Rooms are small and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast is more than enough but mainly south Indian. Ample indoor activities to keep the children happy and most of them are free. they have a wonderful collection of birds...

Reached Hotel Jai on 26th May 2015 around 4.30 pm. We got checked in within 10 minutes. Rooms and the washrooms were very clean. The front office managers Mr. Diaz and Mr. Ajith were very very hospitable, always received us with a smiling face. Room service was very prompt. The hotel is 10 minutes walk from the Kodai lake and... More

We stayed there for three days last week. It is a very good place for family especially for children. Room is very neat and well maintained. Quality of food was excellent. Near to the town and away from the crowd. Everyone can enjoy the landscaping, indoor games, movies etc. Really worth stay.

The hotel was very nice, the staff was also very pleasant. The hotel offers a lot of games and other facilities to keep you entertained. The cost is not too much. The location is not extremely close to the lake (the main sight in kodai) but its not too far either.

Wonderful hotel. The cottages are nice, made of wood which gives a special flavour. Every cottage has a pvt balcony. The resort houses a small zoo, a beautiful play garden for kids, a private water fall, a nice fruits orchard. The resort has a golf course also, which visitors can use, free of cost. The food was good and was... More

We stayed at this hotel from 21-24 May. The hotel is not in the city or close to the market place - the lake or Bryant's walk. You will need a car to go to nearby places at most times. The rooms are good but as mentioned by a few, don't go by the pictures on the website. We stayed... More

I went on a family vacation on May 13th for 3days to this place, but ended up checking out of the hotel the very next day. The stinking room with its run-down flooring/furniture and everything else, made for a very unpleasant, depressing stay and both my wife and son feel sick. To top this, I was charged Rs 21,000/- for... More

As the title suggests, the place is ideal for holidaying with kids. The USP is large, well maintained campus, where kids can spend an excellent time. But if you are looking for a hill view property, this will be a disappointment. Rooms are well maintained, with queen size bed and clean linen, and have an LCD TV with dish connection.... More
