The suites were absolutely cozy with a great ambience. A courteous welcome and indeed the decency and hospitality of the staffs was the icing on the cake. The food was great.... More

Remington and his staff ensure that one gets... More

Booked this hotel for a two night stay. We liked the hospitality of the staff, food served in their restaurant which is highly inspired by old English cottages. Though one of the main attraction of this hotel, the garden right infront of the restaurant facing the valley, was closed for renovation. We opted for kodai view room. Rooms were clean... More

I stayed with my family at Villa Retreat for 3 days. It was a great trip, thoroughly enjoyed the stay. We had booked the villa and so got a homely feeling with tasty food cooked especially for us. The staffs are really nice and hospitable. Had a wonderful time with my family.

After the fantastic views, the chief asset of Villa Retreat are the staff. All are friendly and keen to help. The hotel is situated at the north end of Coaker's walk so you may take breakfast with the same scenic outlook. Take a room with view if possible as those without can be a bit cold and dark.
