We were 2 couples with kids & chose 2 Deluxe suites for our 3-night stay, as the deluxe cottage (with 2 bedrooms) had only 1 room with attached toilet & 2nd room with common Toilet in the hall.
Our check-in begun on a rough note as were alloted 2 suites in 2 different buildings & we were upset with this. However, their staff shifted us to 2 adjacent rooms the next day. (R9 & R10).
Both suites had excellent views.
Resort Location is 5-6 kms away from heart of Kodai, but i personally feel that if you are stayting in a resort, you need to enjoy it & Hill Country has many options for that.
A decent games room / a mini library / a really nice Shuttle court / swings for kids in lawn/ infant activity centre / spa centre / etc.
The silver lining was the Buffet - breakfast & dinner. Just Excellent. We relished the food & use to look forward for same every day.
The rooms were spacious / well laid with balcony & had a nice & very comfortable bed - with bedside tables on both sides.
The resort had excellent landscaping all across & provided a very soothing effect to our stay.
Staff was warm, cordial & service was very good all around.

There are certain downsides too.
- The toilet and shower area are really small & with old tiles / sanitary / bath fittings. In Short, it just does not complement the suite.
- There is no hair dryer provided which is unthinkable in such expensive / high end resort situated at a hill station.
- The geyser was of low capacity - so Hot water use to run out soon.
- Toilet accessories like shampoo / soap / shower cap / etc were inadequate & of very poor quality.
- No Television in bedroom in suites & even no proper seating area in hall where LCD TV is placed. Just 2 single seat sofas placed seperately.
- No Kitchen equipment & hence the kitchenette counter in suite room made no sense.
- Room Service food items were exorbitantly expensive.
- Bar Service was not operational.

Choose the place if you need a resort experience & avoid it if you need to check the touristic locations in & around Kodaikanal.

The location is quite far away from Kodai. it is situated on slop and overlooks hills. the weather differs from kodai. apart from location, resort provides facilites proportionate to what it charges. travel desk is managed by Karthik who is very helful. it has good game zone for kods and adults. Bar is still not functional. In the same tarrif one should try Zest in Kodai or any other place near lake. This should be last option.

We visited this resort as a club mahindra member.the studio apartment provided us was very clean and equipped with partial kitchen.all the essential crockeries and curtleries were provided.toilet was very clean.the resort area is very large and we including our kid enjoyed the greenery and seasonal flowers very much..Staffs are very corteous and helpful.but the resort is a bit away from the main attraction center-the Kodai lake.you have to hire a local cab to come to the lake area and market place and each time it costs around Rs500 and you have to call the cab atleast 2hrs in advance.There is no arrangement for dropping or pick up facility of the resort itself.Food quality is pretty good,particularly the continental dishes.Mostly we enjoyed the vast greenery,colourful flowers and tranquility of the nature..vacation was totally relaxing

Room Tip: There is no opportunity to choose a room if you booked previously...if you go for on the spot bookin...

At the outset,the property is nice...not a huge one,but decent space.if you arE looking for something very luxurious and large then this is really not the place to be.it is green and allows you enjoy the hills with peace around you. But it lacks any place to have a peaceful walk without moving out of the property like some of e othe mahindra properties,say Munnar. You can definitely make out that it is not a Mahindra property.the staff is lousy, and room service is bad. They hardly have menu options if you are wanting to enjoy a nice drink in your room. The retuarant is also small and ha limited options. They don't have buffet if the rooms aren't occupied and you would be forced to an ala-carte. If you have booked it via Mahindra then you are up for ashock. The room is hardly a room and more like a terrace room.there is hardly any view...no space in the room and barely the furniture talks of a 4-5 star property. The only thing that I could relate to wais the Mahindra soap/shower cap etc. we had requested the manager to moves to a bigger room but he refused even though I was ready to pay him mthe entire cost,despite that he was running empty and didn't serve buffet in any of the three meals.

Room Tip: Don't go here if you are a club Mahindra member.

We stayed at Hill country's Delux cottage in May 2012. We were 5 adults, 1 kid and 1 infant. The cottage was big enough to accommodate all of us. The rooms and toilets were very clean and staff were courteous. Food here is awesome and we really enjoyed the breakfast and dinner.
The resort is beautiful with nice lawn and garden. The view from the cottage was awesome. Though there were activities like camp fire in the evening we didn't get enough time to enjoy it. My kid enjoyed the games room and we spent lot of time in the games room playing with my kid.
The only draw back is that it is 6 kms away from the main city but this was an advantage for us as it was very quite.
I strongly recommend this property for a perfect family breaks.

Room Tip: Delux cottage facing valley (D14)
