Stayed at Villa Retreat for 2 days, and it was indeed a very pleasant stay. Check-in was very smooth, room were neat with clean linen, ever smiling and helpful staff, food tasted very good with prompt room service. I stayed in Classic Room - Valley view, and I have no words to explain the scenic beauty. My camera was made... More

We stayed Villa Retreat from 3rd of this month to 7th. It was a pleasant experience. Scenically located near the coakers walk. Spacious rooms, courteous staff. Above all yummy food, which was a treat to our taste buds.

Villa retreat has 2 sites. One in the city near crokers walk and the other around 5 km away in away from the noise and crowd which was where we were put up. Ideal for a group of 4 to 10 ppl. The villa is well maintained and the staff is available for help at any time of the night.... More

We were group of 4 and stayed in this hotel in April'15. We took garden view and deluxe room with balcony rooms. Rooms are average with basic amenities. Real USP of this hotel is it's location and valley view from Garden. Staff was cooperative.. food was awesome. Overall, i would recommend this place.

We visited Kodaikanal in April, 2015. We stayed in the family room for one night, and had a wonderful time. The suite was spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff were extremely polite and friendly. The food was excellent. We recommend the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and Vada for breakfast, along with some fresh carrot juice. The location is excellent, as is... More

If you think other hotels and resorts are not making it up to you by saying you their property is in nature's lap, Villa Retreat would stand up to its every word. Its a beautiful hotel to stay in. Mornings are so pleasant and chirpy that you don't feel like going out of the hotel. And evenings are so imaginative... More

My ordeal with Villa Retreat started at the booking stage. I phoned the hotel to ask for availability as I was traveling during a long weekend. Having been informed by the hotel front desk that there was room availability, I made online bookings for two rooms, one deluxe room with balcony and the other without balcony; both with the "valley...

I stayed for an extended weekend. I had chosen a classic room - no view. While I was as such happy with the room, I was disturbed by noise upstairs due to repairs. After I complained, the staff was very helpful and changed the room (even gave me a free upgrade). The location of the hotel is excellent with great... More
