I had stayed here with friends on a lesuire trip to the city. Impressed by the service and the rooms. Wooden cottages converted into room.Might seem on the outskirts of city and that makes it an excellent place to relax in lap of nature. We had booked rooms online and it stay was worth the money. You would be greeted... More

Heard that the resort is the oldest... More

Awesome place, 3 acres of unspoiled greenery. Nice friendly staff and the owner was so nice. Rooms are very neat and bathrooms are quite big. Some rooms offer a fire place, and the wood is sourced from their own trees. Food was good and affordable, Around 150rs per person. Overall a nice place to spend time.

Lilly's Valley Resort. Pros : 1) The place was nice. Cottages were scattered and placed in different levels of land. 2) The rooms where having wooden flooring so we will not feel that much cold in the morning. There were wooden seats infront of cottages so that we can enjoy the nature in morning and evening. The bath rooms were... More

Ours was a family getaway and we had booked a villa with two rooms (sleeps 6 guests). This resort is constructed at different height levels and so if you have some elderly folks in your list who are not good climbing steps do request for a villa/room rear the reception area itself. The ambience and the cleanliness is very good.... More

Amazing stay. Great ambience. Good food. Good indoor facilities. Wifi could have been given in the rooms as well because at times when some important work comes up it becomes difficult. All in all I loved the service and the staff were very welcoming

The experience was great and it offered great value for money. What one needs to carry is a heater if you like to make your own tea/coffee. It is not very close to the crowded lake area which makes it peaceful. Car is arranged for at good prices by the hotel for any kind of trip - long or short.... More

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
