It offers the best food like an home preparation...The rooms with wood makes us feel comfort and warm inside. This resort allows us to setup a campfire outside. Anyone can order any type of food they like with a wide range of multi cuisine.

Lilly's Valley Resort was not on our list of resorts when we were planning our trip to Kodaikanal. It just happened that we could not book our preferred resort on time and therefore had to go for LVR. But everything happens for good! Our stay at LVR was amazing and so was the entire staff of LVR-very responsive and very hospitable. I would suggest this to all my friends who are planning a trip to Kodaikanal for the first time and are not familiar with the place, please opt for LVR, you will get all possible help and support from the staff.

Room Tip: The Royal suites are very comfortable.

The stay at lillysvalley was great. The atmosphere in the resort was very nice. The campfire program was good and we enjoyed a lot. Mr. Rupan and his team was very co-operative. Mr. Harikrishnan and Mr. Musuf Ali was supporting to all our needs round the clock. Breakfast was very good. Dinner service to rooms was at the right time as promised. Overall the stay was very pleasant and we enjoyed a lot during our stay. lillysvalley is a nice place to enjoy.
Mohankumar and family-Chennai.

Room Tip: Suite rooms are very good and will be suitable for a family.

I was looking for some cottage kinda resort and I am glad to choose these guys.
Best part is they got clean and insect / rats free rooms, which most of the natural cottage resorts miss. Amazing breakfast and really nice staff ready to serve you all time. I booked cabs from these guys itself for local site seeing and to travel to the next destination, rates are good and drivers are best. they will act as your driver+guide+Photographer without asking anything.
If you are planning for Kodaikanal and need economy cottage they are a must recommended. But yes dont expect a 5 star stuff but its a complete value for money.

Hot water issues

Approach of the hotel was not too complex, it was almost 1 KM from TTDC hotel, Kodaikanal.
It was bit isolated from other properties.

It was 30 year old renovated bungalow type property, with lot of wooden work done in whole of the property, including all the rooms.

Welcome was good, Since I was very late in booking and resort people have denied for the availability for any room, but when I approached travelguru website and I got the standard room.

Room was very good, but the room's bathroom disappointed me, which was bit old style.
Hospitality of the staff was very good, the staff person Prince was very courteous and friendly.
Breakfast was included in the booking, and they have served really fresh & hot south indian cuisine variety breakfast.

Overall I am satisfied with the resort ambience, room, breakfast & nice hospitality.

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
