Thanks to Lilly's valley resort for making our early morning (0400 hours) checkin very smooth, we booked two royal twin suites for 10 members however since rooms are quite small we asked for additional room they were happy to provide one, rooms were comfortable and bathrooms were clean. Surroundings were calm with occasional bird chirps. Quality of food is ok... More

Lilly’s Valley Resort, a serene place, located slightly away from the main stream of the city, and yet appears far removed from the usual worldly noises, as if in an absolute forest, perhaps!! In fact, one can hear the sweet noise of the birds throughout the day. About five acres of lush greenery adorned with several verities and colors of... More

Like any tourist destination that knocks you off your senses, half the punch comes the place itself while the other half is provided by the resort you put up in. Having said that, a stay at Lilly's Valley Resort, Kodaikanal sure to pack a solid uppercut and leave you smarting for more. WE visited this resort during the month of... More

Wooden finished interior is excellent , Within, the resort is lovely, with a well tended garden and water features, it feels special. My room, a tropical villa, was a delight, being spacious, with wooden floor, big king sized bed and two day beds for lounging. Excellent amenities, with tiled, spacious bathroom, hot water making facilities, in room safe, free wifi,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups.We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions.Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50%discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays.Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
