We been there for our honey moon trip, stayed in Surya holidays, in COCOS NUCIFERA room. Out actual plan was 3N only, bz of the surrounding, room comfort, view & services, my wife desired to stay one more day, and we finally left after 5days of stay in Surya holidays. Such a beautiful environment & view it has. Its worth to stay out there. Of course its bit distance from the city, but my personal opinion its useless to stay in city, only u can go for some shopping, that's all. Hope everyone who visiting to Kodai only to stay calm & enjoy the nature, so Surya holidays is the best option. For site visiting they arranging a cab, based on your budget. So totally its worth to stay out there. At least to stay Surya holidays I will go to Kodai again with my family.

The wooden cottage that we stayed had an excellent view of the valley and the lake. It was spacious enough for a family and the food was also very homely. They provided us with a camp fire and they are equipped for a barbecue also. We were also able to see the most wanted to see bison, which gazes there quite frequently. Over all a nice, quite, clam and present stay for a vacation which is mainly for rest and enjoyment of the climate! A memorable holiday... Thanks Surya holidays!

Room Tip: Wooden cottage with an excellent view of the lake!

We had a good experience in surya holidays I really thank MR.Sorab (Owner) for all his services he is a nice gentleman. This is one of the best place in Kodaikanal. As it is located on one of the toppest hill you will have great view of koadi lake and in the morning u can enjoy beautiful sun rise view from suite balcony . My wife and daughter really enjoyed the surrounding atmosphere. One night we had a surprise as we saw a bison grazing beside our suite room. My daughter and my wife was so excited to see it. I really suggest if u are a nature lover and u want a peaceful place then go to surya holidays you will really enjoy.

Room Tip: I would suggest king suite as it has great view of lake.

1* for the Location & ambiance
2* for the Service
3* for the accessibility to all the Places in Kodai
4* for the Food and Bonfire
Would have given 5*, but not as it is too expensive and poor water facility.

We stayed here last week. The location is amazing. The place is around 2 kilometers from Kodai and located on top of a mountain. This property has only six cottages and looks exactly similar way it appears in the website.

We have stayed in the wood house, the house constructed with pine wood. The cottages overlooks entire kodai. one can see the entire kodai lake sitting in the balcony. the cottage has a huge window where we can have view of mountains and in the night, we can have the moon light as our bed lamp. This was a great experiance for us. Location wise, I don't think there is any other better place to stay in Kodai.

There is a ranch in the property where we can have a look at the grazing horses. We had a surprise when we saw the Gaurs in the evening. I am a wild life lover and I very much enjoyed wathing the bisons sitting in the balcony. We had learnt that the bisons come here every day.

Coming to the negative points:

The property has only 2 people managing it. John the cook and the care taker, Daya is his assistant. The food will be cooked on demand. There will not be many varities to choose from. The breakfast will also be just one item like idly or Upma or bread toast. I think it's a too much of a task for the 2 guys managing the entire property from cleaning the rooms to serving the food to procuring the groceries from Kodai.

This is the area the management has to concentrate on.

Room Tip: I recommand Cocous Cottage.

If you have a vehicle and planned to stay away from crowd with no noise and pollution i suggest this is the place. I stayed in cocous, and felt really comfortable, please plan well before your stay
Sorab who is in charge was kind, at the same time Dhaya was very supportive and very helpful
24 hrs hot water, DTH connection, superb location, power back up is an added advantage
Evening after 7 PM you will be able to see Bison in front of your doors, if you are lucky you will more than one in day time too

Room Tip: Cocous suite will be a good choice
