Been to this hotel with family on 8th Nov.2013 - 3 days. Location of this hotel is very nice. Good hospitality from the hotel team. Food was delicious, but could place their rates a bit more competitive. Rooms could have been a bit more spacious and would be happy if they also had a play area for kids. Thanks to dina, mohammed, Javid & team for honoring our request for room 108 (has a great view of the valley) and arranging a complimentary birthday cake for my daughter. Would love to come back!!!

Room Tip: Room: 108 has a great valley view.

We had visited this place in Deepavali (On 1/11/13 till 5/11/13) and stayed in family cottage i.e. in Room no. 100 which had fireplace n spacious room with all types of facility .The whole experience has been beyond our expectations.The whole Villa Team especially Mr. Javed takes the services experience to the next level, they just pamper you with more of it each time.
The hotel is located in such a place from where the view is fantastic and the best thing is the dining place from where u can have beautiful valley view !!!

Its worth visiting hotel and I dont think there is any other hotel in Kodaikanal like Villa Retreat !!
If anybody wants to visit Kodaikanal , please do stay in Hotel villa retreat only and not any other hotel !!

Room Tip: Family Cottage is the best room out of all the rooms(Room no.100). Spacious room with fireplace an...

My first trip to Kodaikanal and I realized I missed something great all these years the moment I had a first sight of the place. Having visited most of the Hill stations in South India and a handful of lovely Beach resorts, this place was unique. This place calls for a second visit even before you've left.

Now, coming to Villa Retreat, this place was home away from home plus the tranquilty! Located alongside Coaker's walk, a part of it overlooking the City and another to the breathtaking Valley view. Though it was foggy most of the time, when it cleared, we get a good view of a distant Lake.

Well, I've stayed at Yercaud and Munnar at much expensive resorts, both these with opening up to a beuatiful Valley view. But Villa Retreat is different. The service here is not just professional, they have a personal touch going about their guests. I stayed with my wife and a 2 year old. The staff took good care of the kid and ensured we dined in peace. Hot water was provided in a flask and special dish was prepared for my kid! Food is synonymous to home made. Lawn in the dining area is something I've always dreamed of, overlooking the valley!

My room was located adjacent to the Coaker's walk. So I basically got a view of the Valley as it looks from Coaker's walk. Special thanks to all the staffs especially Mr. Murugan and Mr. Javed. Overall,it wasn't a big luxury Resort, but was compact, feel good resort with excellent location and friendly staff. It was rejuvenating to my family and this place is a definite place to visit again!

Room Tip: Room 108 for the best view, but it's totally upto chance sine the Resort, I was told, follows fa...

Ok rooms with decent food. The staff are less than courteous. The first thing they do is tell you to check their rating on this website with a smug look on their face. Extremely near Coakers walk. Use your judgement before booking a room.

We had warm welcome from the staff Javid,Mohammed,Murugan.They arranged a cab for us to pick from Bus stop to reach into the hotel.After entering the room, they will provide breakfast which was very nice.Room service was very good and nice response from the hotel guys.There was a nice garden at Dining side.Beside the hotel, there was Coakers walk and opp to Bryant park and lake. These are some important places to visit.They arranged candle light dinner for us.Overall it was a very good experience at Villa Retreat.

Very nice Resort to stay in a very good location... The service is too good.... we had a very warm welcome from the people Javid, Mohammed, Murugan.... They are always ready to help us. They even arranged a candle light dinner for us...

They have a very nice garden restaurant... Some of the main places (Coakers walk, Bryan park, boating) are at a walkable distance... All the shopping can be done there only... The food is nice specially the breakfast is awesome... Overall it was a very nice experience at Villa Retreat... I always recommend to stay over there...
