“Very pleasant and comfortable stay with homely food” at Lily’s Valley resort.
I stayed at Lily’s resort from April 6 to 8, 2013 with my family, in Royal suite # 117. It’s a Very good room with wooden flooring and a small separate living / dining room and big balcony outside. This series of rooms are really good, in terms of privacy, view.
We reached Kodai on 6th evening; I already did some pre checking on trip advisor and found this resort right on top of choices list. So we decided to stay here. It was night, so we could gauge the beauty / serenity of this place, but what a lovely early morning sight. It exceeded our expectations. The front view from this room is fantastic and having morning tea (Served there), in balcony outside the room, which is surrounded by complete greenery, is a fantastic experience.
Also, they serve nice breakfast in cafeteria, with good variety and tasty/ homely food, serene seating arrangements and excellent service.
Location of resort is superb. It’s not on main road and that bring lot of peace, privacy and quality to this place but it’s not far from market as well. Excellent choice for families who are looking for quality time together.
My kids really loved the place as there is ample place to play, roam around and enjoy. They explored every part of the resort. It’s worth every penny spent. Few things which will add icing on cake is, having LCD/ LED TV in rooms instead of old styled CRT, Wi-Fi coverage in the rooms, having more options from north Indian food menu and taste. They prepare the food on order.
Rubin and his team is great host and other can learn a lesson in serving customer from their staff. I strongly recommend staying at this place, for the ones who want to enjoy the serenity, peace of Kodai and Lily’s Valley resort.
I am already looking forward to my next stay here.
- 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
