We booked this resort for 4 nights based on a good Rating by Trip Advisor & we are glad we made this choice. Our first experience on arrival at the Resort, after check- in, was an enjoyable ride in the Golf Cart from the Reception to our Room - up the winding pathway lined with green, landscaped lawns & colourful flowers so pleasing to the eye. The Room was clean & well appointed and house keeping staff was always willing to address any concerns we had.
Food at the Multi Cuisine Restaurant was a culinary delight. We tried a different cuisine every day & each of them was a treat made even more enjoyable by courteous & personalised service. Breakfast Buffet (served in a different Restaurant) was a good spread each day though there is a room for improvement as far as service & staff training is concerned. What is heartening, however, is that they were receptive & the Restaurant Manager welcomed & accepted the feedback gracefully promising to take corrective action.
The Resort does not really have a view of the Lake and its "Kodai by the Lake" tag is in fact some what deceptive as one starts expecting to walk on to the Lake Road as you step out of the resort. The fact is that it's a long 20-30 Minute walk to this Central Area or 7 Road Junction etc. If you do not have a transport even for going to this point you would better be in the right Walking Gear.
All said & done, it was an enjoyable experience and we would love to come back again with family/ friends and recommend this to travellers visiting Kodaikanal.
