“Excelleny place to stay in kodai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

I stayed there for two nights and it was excellent, especially early morning view, sunrise and definitely jewel view at night time.even it is in the center of town and it is a crowded place, the valley view is very good. I loved breakfast here, french toast with honey and there are many food points nearby. I would recommend this place for couples and families.

Room Tip: Room with valley view, first floor rooms have more view.

Hotel Villa Retreat is a very nicely located hotel overlooking the valley and right next to the Coakers Walk. The rooms are very cosy and well maintained. They have good management and cordial staff who are always there to help out and put their best efforts to make the stay at the hotel comfortable and memorable.

We(3 families) stayed there during Diwali. It was a memorable experience. The view(Coakers' Walk) was breathtaking!! So was the food. The Paper Roast was just out of the world and my kids loved the butter chicken!!
The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent.
We stayed in the Deluxe Suites that had a wonderful view from the window of the living room. The rooms were neat and clean. The bathroom was sparkling with hot water available 24 hrs.
They also had a games room that the children spent a lot of time in.
The change room and the common toilet were amazingly clean.
The lawn that overlooked the hill was well maintained - an ideal place to relax and rejuvenate!!
The resort is centrally located and close to most of the tourist spots in Kodaikanal
We wished we could have stayed there for a few more days!
I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Kodaikanal

Room Tip: Deluxe suites have a great view and is close to the dining hall as well!! Away from the noise of the...

After a long time, I had decided on a vacation with family... I couldn't have asked for a better place than Villa Retreat. My stay was made memory able by the wonderful location, well maintained landscape...Friendly staff (Javed and Saif in particular)

Don't miss the breakfast... The Sambar is out of the world...

Room Tip: The Deluxe Suite is recommended

I choose this hotel purely based on Tripadvisor reviews. And i was not wrong. This hotel has an excellent location with few rooms facing the valley. I was in the Deluxe Suite which has best location. I had booked for 4 nights. But i reduced my stay to 3 nights. But hotel asked to pay for the 4th night too (Not happy). The package for 4 nights for Deluxe room was 21584/- in the last week of October 2012. This hotel can be booked only from their website or calling the front desk.
This hotel holds a strategic location too. Its just next to Coakers Walk and walking distance from Park, Bus Stand & Market.
The hotel food was very delicious. We eat all days, both meals at this hotel. Basically, Kodaikanal dont have much restaurants that you can go out and enjoy. This hotel makes excellent wheat parathas and chicken. But dont expect a fabulous restaurant in this hotel for sitting. We always ordered food on the room. The hotel restaurant is very small and not for having dinner. You get Rs300 for 2 people to order for breakfast and you can choose from the menu. Its not a buffet breakfast.
Just to tell you all, this hotel is next to a church and your sleep may be disturbed starting 5am morning till midnights.

Room Tip: Choose the Deluxe suite rooms that face the valley. Other rooms dont have valley view. Check my phot...
