This hotel is just adjacent to Coakers walk, opposite to Bryant Park and probably 200 mts from the Kodai Lake. The hotel staff (be it the front desk guys or the restaurant guys) are very friendly and ensure you have a comfortable stay. We stayed at the Deluxe rooms (rooms with no views), but we hardly spent time at the... More

Location of this resort is breathtaking having excellent valley view. Its location adjacent to the Coakers walk is a plus. Excellent service by the team. Food was slightly on the expensive side. We stayed in the old building. Enjoyed the jewel box view during night stay.

Its a resort kind of hotel. The rooms are arranged like cottages. Its greenery all over the place. Rooms were very spacious feel was very smoothing. Views from sitting area where one can have breakfast as well, was amazing. Overall the best hotel to stay in Kodaikanal.

Villa Retreat is the best spot to stay at Kodaikanal. Located at the beginning of the short, easy 10 minute Coakers Walk, next to the Van Allen Hospital and the Christ the King church and across from Bryants Park, it has the best views and heritage ambiance as well as really terrific food. It's also well located for other eateries... More

And looking at the valley below with the lake at the distance. Stayed at the mini classic which is the only room which overlooks the valley... More
