“Staff and Food a let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

I had booked a room here for 2 nights. I got the confirmation that the room will be available. On reaching this place in the evening around 7 pm, I was plainly informed that I will be provided with a room on the condition that we vacate the premises before 10 am the following morning. The staff was rude and did consider the fact that that I had booked a room here. All they were adamant about was that I was not a Club Mahindra member. When left with no option but to walk away, they reluctantly offered me a room.

The food here was tasteless and cold. The soup that we had ordered was stale and wasn't even heated properly. The staff/cook argued with me and asked me to suggest a place where the food is cooked better.

The room was nice with nice views. No complaints about it. But overall experience with the staff was very bad.

Zest @ Coaker’s Villa is situated in Kodaikanal near the Coaker’s walk. It is at a short distance from the lake and town centre. There are a lot of fun activities to engage in like cycling, boating, trekking and horse-riding. The resort’s beauty is enhanced by the breath-taking valley view. Huge and spacious rooms surrounded by beautiful flowers capture one’s eye in serenity. Good room service and amicability of the staff is an icing on the cake. After a fun game of carrom all you need is a delicious barbeque arranged by the resort. We still have fond memories of dancing the night away to the rocking tunes around the bon-fire. To conclude, a perfect place to enjoy the tranquillity and to rejuvenate yourself.
