“Perfect place to stay for honeymoon”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

I stayed at Lily Valley resort during the 2nd week of july. It was a pleasant stay and memorable one.The staff's are courteous and friendly. The food served by them them are tasty and delicious.The rooms are neat and clean. Worth for money paid.

The way i am served during my honeymoon at the resort was so nice and special applause to Mr. Ruban and his team for their hearty support to us during the stay.

Initially i booked for deluxe room and i stayed there for 2 days and got upgraded to royal honeymoon suite during the 3 rd day.

if you are a budgeted traveler looks for peaceful and courteous service lily valley suits you very well.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are nice and clean and well furnished.

It is memorable stay for us, as we spend our honey moon. It is a decent hotel which will fit in your budget.
The staffs were very polite and cooperative.
The resort has restaurant which serves break fast and dinner. You can choose your own dinner menu. It is nice tasty food.
If you request, they will arrange cab for site seeing.
The resort is located in outside the busy streets. It has a vast land space, I guess around 2 acers.
You will feel the vocation.

Over all it was a great experience.

I will come back again.

I recently stayed at Lilly\'s Valley resort from 13th April until
15th April and it was a very memorable experience, we has a greate
leisure time that left us happy and generouus. It is the oldest resort
in Kodaikanal, Lilly\'s Valley has a pleasant ambience and friendly
staff.It\'s Worth for money paid. Everyone here are so helpful and
wonderfully assistive. If you want to stay in kodaikanal you should
stay in this resort . As a family we had a nice timeFood was awesome
and they prepare accordimng to your wishes. You just need to let them
know what you need in the lunch and dinner. they will make it for
you.Theis part of the package (Lunch or Dinner). The quality of food
served was so good. The breakfast menu changes daily and you can get
different things daily o have enough energy for your day outs.Staff
members with whom we interacted was very good. They are always happy
to welcome you and ready to address any issues raised by us. Ruben and
his assistant Nagendra never says No for anything. They always try to
make your says as cool and pleasant as they can. We really felt
comfortable and had a memorable/trip.Resort itself was great that you
will feel like staying more and coming often. After roaming in
Kodaikanal we realized our decision to stay in Lilly\'s valley was
very good. Because of its location (2 kms away from main city) it
gives you peace of mind and divert your attention from the hustle of
the daily life. The resort is quiet and you get a feeling that you are
very close to nature.

Room Tip: Cottages are awesome!!

Dear sir,
Thank you for your review through trip adviser . I 'm sorry for the in convenience,I don,t know in which cottage you have staid . However,we have a cottage called "Nightingale Royal suite" from which we have the view of the valley also from our various part of property. But, the valley may not be steep one.Local taxi 1s rs.100.00 any were to down town.And regarding the sit-out. Almost, most of our cottages have sit-outs. Only few do not have sit-out. That is lower range budgeted cottages. Again thanking you for your valuable review.

Hi Friends,

This is my First visit in Kodai & prior to coming I was searching all travel sites for good stay. My search on Tripadvisor leads me to Lilly's Valley Resort. I went thru all reviews and found all of them +ve about this resort. After going thru all these I booked 3 night stay.

I reached there on Sunday morning around 7:00 AM and guess what pickup person was standing there at bus stand and was waiting for me. Normally check in time is 10 AM but as I reached early, staff offered us a room to freshen up later served us B'fast which was delivious.

Room was good, bed was comfortable. Location, Staff of this resort are very very good. They try everything to make you feel good. They provide you free pickup/drop to city. Food which is provided in the resport is very good (although you may not find more variety but what ever is there is good and sufficient and above all delicious).

Hotel provides tour services which are also good (they have there own travel agency near Kodai lake).

Over all friends I am very much satisfied and will definately come back to this and also advise others as well.

Regards
Gurpreet Singh Sethi

Room Tip: All are good.....

After my childhood, for the first time in my life, I woke to the singing of birds, I could taste a few local fruits and even enjoy a beautiful scenery with no hussles of a city life. The Lilly's vally offers service and ambience perfect for a vacation or a second honey moon or just some time you need with yourself.

In this site you might read reviews about the Food there. Of course, you cant expect a multi-cuisine, 5-star hotel food, coz they dont run a hotel, and people dont come here to eat. The food served here is in accordance to the taste of the guests and they try to provide the best they can.

Try this place and you wont regret it. Any complaints about the place, bring it to the notice of the authorities and they are always on their toes to serve you better.

I will re-visit for sure.

Room Tip: Choose the suite rooms for a good view of the sunrise.

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
