The location is fantastic - 5 minutes walk from the bus stand, 5 minutes walk from Kodai Lake, next to Coaker's Walk and opposite to Bryant Park. The rooms are clean, spacious and well furnished. We took the cheapest room and even that was good enough. The view of the valley from the open area is breathtaking. The staff is... More

Centrally located . Coakers walk and lake is just near to the hotel. You can visit many places by walk from the hotel easily. Good hospitable and courteous people. The food was good, rooms were neat and view from the room was excellent.

A nice retreat attached to croakers walk in kodaikanal,The place offers an equally mesmerizing sunrise on a clear days. It is located close to the center of the hill station. Expect the nights to be extra cold as there are no temperature control in place for the price paid. The breakfast offered with the stay was fair enough

Looking at the reviews by other trip advisor one may feel this is at the best location, near coakers walk etc etc. But believe me this is over hyped place, views are good but the same can be seen from Coakers walk as well.

We booked the hotel with lots of expectations and should say there is still a lots lagging . Excellent location we should say, spending time in lawn where the dinner is provided is with scenic ambiance and that provides an edge across all other hotels nearby. First day we are at 9 o clock in the hotel and they said... More

While we went around entire Kodai and its attractions, I would still rate that the best and most beautiful view of Kodai is at this resort. The entire resort is done up aesthetically and carries an old-time charm which is truly bewitching. You could spend the entire day and night by the benches and stare at the valley, mountains and...

A family vacation by four of us including young adult daughter and son at Villa Retreat, Kodaikanal was too soothing, refreshing and fulfilling an experience and I would cherish the memories for a long time. Thanks to Trip Advisor, I could locate the boutique property and completed online booking formalities at the hotel's website more than a month before our... More
