“Beautiful place”

We stayed for 2 nights and overall experience was very nice.Loved the food and everything in the resort is very well maintained.You can really spend some quality time in the resort as it has many things to offer.It is 4 to 5 kms away from the city and they should just put more sign boards for directions.

Room Tip: We took regular cottage and it is good for 2 couples or a family of 4. I recommend cottage over roo...

Spend 2 days in august with family and friends. Food was fairly good but pricey.Rooms basic amenities with small kitchen.Property fairly maintained.You need Vehicle for transportation.
Overall because of club mahindra membership ok.
If asked to pay and stay will think 2ice in view of cost & distance from lake.

IT s a beautiful resort located 5-6 kms away from the busy kodai town. We stayed for two nights and it was a memorable time in the resort . one can just roam around the resort premises itself for hours together...it gives such a nice ambience. Food was a bit expensive,,but still quantity of the food they provided was really good and taste was excellent. Nature lovers and those who just want to relax with their family can go for this resort...believe me it is one of the most places we ve ever stayed..so far.

We booked 1 bedroom set through our Club Mahindra membership. Resort has 61 rooms, out of which club Mahindra has taken 16 rooms. Resort is located about 4-5 km away from Kodaikanal. Resort doesn't have any sign board to guide the way. Approach road from main road is horrible, one get doubts all way if one is on right track. Resort has small activity room which has TT table, carom board, books, ludo, chess and small area with kid slide, swing. Other things like Spa, Pool table are on charge. Apart from this, they have few swing, slide in open area. They have one music room for Karaoke which functions based on occupancy in resort. Rooms are scattered on uneven terrain and if you are going in rainy season better take your own umbrellas, resort have very few. There doesn't seems to be power backup, however room would have candle, just to make those moments more memorable. Resort has restaurant however it is very expensive, almost five star rates. In summary, i would say this is an average resort, away from city, doesn't have any restaurant nearby as alternate.

Room Tip: In our last trip in 2006 we stayed in Highland parade, it had better view and better service.

Location - It is is the best for those who wish to stay close to the mountain ranges (about 5 kms from the main Kodai lake). Very good sunset view point.
Food- Expensive. But the items are very tasty and the service is great. No occasion to complain in my four days stay.
Travel- In case you are not driving on your own, then you shall appreciate the dedicated travel desk with economical packages for local touring in case of group travel. While exclusive cab facility is made available at short notice also.
Room- Have stayed in a premium suite which accommodates a couple with a living, bed room with attached toilet and a dedicated balcony and 24 hr hot water. The view from the balcony is landscaped play area overlooking the mountain ranges.The room size is average but not too big, that seems sufficient for just two people.

The stay was quite peaceful and we planned our day at leisure covering a few places each day.
We had really missed the fireplace inside the room though heater is provided on request. However, there is no On-demand bonfire arrangement in the open air where the guests who are interested can come around. However, this is considered as a premium service making it available only to a larger group of guests between 7:15 to 8:30 PM only. There is also an indoor games room to play TT, Carrom, Chess, Snooker, etc. Do not expect premium suite to have the WOW factors like candle light dinner, bonfire on request, chocolates in the room, welcome drink,etc. These are something I guess will be available only if you are a customer of the holiday package and not if you plan resort, travel, etc independently.

We had our return bus at 6PM. Though the checkout was in the morning, we had been accommodated till 4 in the evening without any hiccups. Thanks to Rajasekhar and courteous staff who made our stay pleasant and memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for an unobstructed hill view room. I find two trees obstructing the hill view partially.
