“They fail to impress.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I have a membership here. I landed here more than 3 times. The staff ensures that your BP raises if you are not already yelling. The staff need not behave so terribly as you land. Checking in seems to take eternal. If there are 2 people ahead of you, you better put your children to sleep or complete dinner. There is however no learning. Normally you land here because Lakeview says no room. But once you cross checking, the ambience, room sizes, lawns, night activity, scenic beauty, all makes you forget the ordeal you have gone through. Frisbee, shuttle, camp fire by night, it provides all. Your car is safe, your driver has place for bath etc. food is prohibitive. The approach is bad till you reach the property although the road till the approach has been recently done.

Room Tip: I go for Studio. Ground floor rooms give you extra comfort of jumping out of the window in the early...

Overall we are satisfied with the hotel. The staff was very courteous and friendly. Check-in and checkout processes were really quick. Complimentary breakfast and every night camp fire parties are excellent. Hot water available all the while. The food is quite expensive.

We spent a beautiful 2 days in the tranquil, green, well laid out precincts of this lovely resort,surrounded by lush greenery. The view from our room was to die for.The staff were so courteous and friendly.Although resort itself is very huge in terms of area and inventory but need to give more attention on this resort in terms of maintaining.
Staff were fabulous, we checked in at midnight given very prompt service at the time of check in.
It was a great experience......................

The resort is located round 6 Km from Kodai bus stand, Restaurant is good and serves tasty food. Room heater are available in all the rooms, rooms were neat and clean.
We found the staff courteous and friendly, the Velly view is really good and you wake up in peaceful n blissful morning after a comfortable sleep. Indoor activities are of average quality, couple of swing for kids are available. Not many frill to the resort but really comfortable and lot of positive energy flowing around.
