Very good stay in Feb 13. Tasty food, clean and tidy ambience. Good attention to detail. Very helpful people....no wonder they are the best in kodai.

One of the staff members took the pain of drawing out a map of all must see places in kodai.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view only if you are really inclined towards one

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Retreat for 4 nights and loved our stay here. The staff are very courteous and helpful in everyway. Special mention for Mr. Amarnath and Mr. Saif at the reception and Messrs. Kumar, Ishwar and Satish at the dining area. The property is fantastically situated close to the lake and Coakers walk and the resort had pretty reasonable priced sightseeing plans. All in all, we enjoyed every minute of our stay and look forward to returning there soon.

Room Tip: Classic rooms are the best choice.

Travelled with family in Oct 2012.

Was very skeptical when we made the booking as it was just based on the reviews posted in tripadvisor. Finally when we landed at the property were very happy that we had made the right decision. It was adjacent to Coaker’s walk and had excellent views from the garden area. One could enjoy breakfast/lunch sitting out in the garden enjoying the beauty of mist covered valley. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. No hassles with Hot was availability.

The booking and checkin procedure itself was very smooth. The staff were very courteous. Very convenient walking distance to Bryant Park, Kodai Lake and ofcourse Coaker’s walk.

Food was very tasty. One thing I would want to mention however is that service was very slow. We had to wait for more than an hour and half for breakfast to be served. They said they had too many guests and hence the delay. But being at a tourist location the last thing we would want do is waste time in the morning waiting for breakfast! Maybe having buffet breakfast would solve this problem for both….
