I opted for Kodai as Honeymoon destination as my wife suggested and my friends booked this resort for me. So I was not sure what to expect.

Surprise surprise! The resort was awesome, I stayed there for 4 days and enjoyed every hour of it! From the moment i stepped inside the resort (Its Awesomly Beautiful) till the time I left that place with a promise to come back again :)

One thing I should mention here is the food they serve! I thanked the Chef everytime I had something!

Love Kodai Love Hill country resort!

We stayed here during the extended weekend in the last week of Sep' 12. The resort overlooks the Keti valley and you have the most amazing views from the resort. We stayed in the deluxe suite which is basically the garden view room. The room is quite spacious. The geyser provided piping hot water. No complaints. We liked the food in the restaurant. It was served hot and was yummy. Rooms were cleaned by two women n was supervised. We happened to return during one of the cleaning sessions. The staff was courteous and helpful.
Room tips: Choose a valley view room/cottage for the Keti valley view.

it is very good experience. I can say that, ' Hill country' is the best place to stay in ooty. But , food at 'hill country' is horrible. My sincere advice is , it is better to make own arrangements for food ( especially if u r with children) and never opt for non-veg. The restaurant named in the hill country is " ' Orenda' - taste the magic.."
My advice is ... before taste .. just test and then decide ... otherwise.. the entire trip will be disaster...

Room Tip: Opt for corner suits

Had been there for my honeymoon and the place was excellent. Good property with friendly staff and good food and entertainment facilities. they also help in arranging cab for local sight seeing and pick up/drop from nearest airport. All in all, its a good place to visit

Not worth the money we pay.

Let me 1st start with positives,
Location & Rooms: Very good loaction with the valley view.
Around 2Km away from Ooty main city keeps the place very calm and peaceful.
Rooms are spacious and well maintained.
Bonfire place is a highlight.
Nicely maintained lawn everywhere in the resort.

Now the negatives:
Food: Breakfast was good, dinners were bad.
Beverages / Snacks are on the expensive side and the quality and taste makes them unworthy. Aerated drinks are served at room temp :-(.
Room: No refrigerator, no fan, no AC in premium suits, i wonder what will happen when its too cold without AC.
Service: I would call it Pathetic!!, why because 1. Very very delayed service, we wanted the bonfire to be arranged by 7:00pm, it was arranged at 8:45pm and 9:00pm rain played a spoilt sport. 2. Other day we had a candle light dinner booked for 9:00 pm, it was arranged at 10:30pm with only one used candle which was burning on its reserve wax. 3. While checking out we called the room service to pick our luggage back to our car and we had to wait for 30min. We could have carried it ourselves but climbing up with the luggage to the car parking area was a challenge.

If you dont care about service then this is a very good place to visit.
If you care about the service then its a waste of money.

Irrespective of all this enjoy the holiday.. Have fun, Cheers.... :)

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with the valley view.
