We came to Villa Retreat, Kodaikanal for our First Anniversary and were completely overwhelmed by the location and scenic beauty of the Hotel. Since we arrived by 1 pm, I had booked a Classic Room for the 1st Night and a Deluxe Suite for the 2 nights to follow. At Lunch time itself, we got a taste of things to follow. The Food was so deliciously cooked to my surprise, since i didn't expect to get good Punjabi Non-Veg. Dishes in South India. Even my Wife, who is not much of a Non-Vegetarian eater, liked the tasty Gravy. We opted for a Paid Nature Tour which was completely worth every penny. It was my Wife's Birthday on the 2nd Day of our stay and i happened to mention it to the Service Guy (John). To my surprise, He had informed the Management and the next Day, the Resort Manager (Javed) meet me privately and informed me that He was going to Decorate our Deluxe Suite to which we were shifting to and send a Cake as compliments from the Hotel. I loved the idea and we left for our Nature Tour. My Wife was delightfully surprised by the room decorations. It was set very nicely. My Wife was handed a beautiful Bouquet on behalf of the Management. We enjoyed the Cake too. Throughout the stay, the FnB Manager (Kumar) took care of our Food requirements. The food was so good that we didn't have to leave our Hotel to try anything else. Amarnath and Saif were very helpful with our Local travelling arrangements as well as any help we required in the Hotel premises. To Top of such pleasant Hospitality, the Icing on the Cake was a Candle Light Dinner on our last night of the stay. The Chef (James) prepared a Chef Special Starter 'Butterfly Chicken with Garlic Sauce' which was fabulous and tasty. He followed it up with some Hot Gulab Jamuns. All these food items were compliments from the Hotel for my Wife's Birthday and we were very Happy. Overall it was a very pleasing and satisfying experience. Villa Retreat gave us wonder Service, Food and Surprises. Just before checking out, Javed took us to the Garden and clicked a Snap of us in front of the Hotel and gave us a Photo Frame with our Picture. It is beautiful and I have kept it in our Bedroom as a Memory. Thumbs Up to this Hotel and I recommend it to anyone going to Kodaikanal.
