After 2 nights of stay here with my family (group of 10 adults & 4 kids), I returned with mixed feelings.
What I liked?
- The view from the resort is very good as it's located on the top of the hill. It was indeed a cliff hanger experience.
- The buffet breakfast was very good. Even though the buffet spread is minimal, the quality and taste of the food was good.
- All rooms are spacious (even the standard room). The balconies/terrace offers a good view and are spacious as well.
- Good mattresses offers good sleep quality (which is not the norm in most of the standard hotels in Kodaikanal).
What could have been better?
- The approach road to the resort is narrow and there are no side barricade. If you're adventurous, then you may indeed enjoy the road. Else, it might be bit scary especially if you travel in a mini bus or tempo traveler.
- If you're looking for a luxurious hotel (such as Kodai International or Carlton), then this is not the right hotel for you. This is an average resort and the room quality and amenities are decent but not luxurious.
- There were many broken tiles or patches on the floors especially in the balcony. Good maintenance is required if the hotel wants to attract urban crowd.
- There are no play area, swimming pool or other amenities inside the resort. Also, the campus is not very big. Instead of considering it as a resort, consider this as a decent sized hotel with good valley view.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set on a hilltop amidst the lush green valleys of Kodaikanal, United-21 Resort offers an idyllic atmosphere, away from the hustle-bustle of the city.
