We discovered Lilly Valley last year, 2009. We came for 2 days and we stayed 7 weeks. We are a french couple, retired, and we have been looking for such a place for a long time, beautifully located in a nest of nature, near Kodaikanal by foot and out of noise and pollution. We were welcomed by a friendly team and we could ask for a specific food that we like for a long stay. It is a very special place for the lovers of nature, a diversity of birds, trees and flowers... Nice cottages aesthetically decorated with wood by the owner who is an artist, so we can feel comfortable. This year, in 2010, we come back for a long satay of 3 months, it is nice to feel at home again.
- 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
