“Pleasant experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I planned south India tour to my parents and after going through the review I booked a room for them at this resort. They stayed here for two nights and they were extremely happy with the service and cleanliness of the resort.
I would have given a more detailed review if I was there in person but I hope this little information is helpful to someone who is looking for a decent hotel/resort in Kodaikanal.
Thanks to the resort management for making my parents happy.

Stayed March 2013, traveled as a couple

We were 5 bachelors who stayed at Lilly's Valley Resort for a 2 night Accommodation. We reached midnight by 3 AM and the staff Prince guided us the route at that time and we reached safely. We were given a temporary room for the sleep and in the morning Sridhar (Staff) have accommodated us to a new room which was more comfortable than the previous. All the staff Vijay, Hari and others were friendly & very helpful to us. The food was really tasty and we did not have a feel that we are missing our home food. On the whole we will again visit the same resort for the next when we visit Kodai.

Hello, Myself along with 5 of my friends stayed in Lilly's Valley resort, belive me it was awesome experience. We had a wonderful stay, more over we felt that as we are at home.
Cotage: Very neat and clean, blankets were very clear and not dirt / stains / smell bad
Service: Right at your door, we asked for water at 11:30 PM almost mid night (outside temperature was <10"C), we had a guy in 2 mins with a warm water to drink. I was admired and shocked to hear from him that "Sir do you want anything?" with a smiling face and ready to serve.
Food: Straight forward fentasic food, they dont repeat the food chain, unique. Highly Quality food.

OVERALL: 5 / 5. Suggest for all, family / only male... Very descent one to go and have a happy stay.

Go ahead and have fun... Good luck.

Lily valley resort in Kodai is very nicely design for a comfort stay. The rooms are well funrished and the sorrounding inside the resort is really cool.The environment is really peaceful here.

The resort is sorrounded by beautiful landscape and greenery....the staff of the resort is really cooperaive and are eager to help you in any way they can at any point of time.

The resort only needs a nice running resturant. However the there is provision of getting food inside the resort.

Room Tip: Add a provision to have a running resturant inside the resort will attract more tourist

I landed there couple of hours before my check-in time and without any delay they offered me a neat room to get refreshed until my room is ready. The food here is fantastic and tastes like home made one. For breakfast they normally serve 3-4 varieties of items everyday which is really worth. Lunch and dinner menu are limited but you will find it good and moderately priced for a resort.

The location is not far from the center of town but also not walkable as there are many steep roads on the way which will leave you exhausted :)
They maintain a reasonably good garden as well with variety of flowers. But could have been more better if they remove off fallen leaves regularly.

The staffs are very polite. They also deliver food to your room on time and serve hot.
The sight seeing facility is available on package basis only. This must be a customizable one wherein we choose what to visit.

I am happy overall with their services. Will recommend this to my friends.

Room Tip: If you are a family not more than 4 member, go for a family cottage. It is really worth and newly co...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups.We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions.Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50%discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays.Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
