i stayed in this exquisite property for 2 nights during end of January 2014. The experience was amazing. it really defined a Holiday resort with lots of extravagent greeneries around, kind staff (interestingly HINDI speaking !) good food, well appointed INDOOR game area with total security. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of stay.

I was in for a pleasant surprise when i visited the resort for the second time.The resort is spacious with lots of greenery, nice views of the valley from our room. The staff at the resort in particular, Ms Meena and Mr Abdul were very helpful.The rooms were neat and clean with very good room service. We opted for their Buffet deals and what we got was the best. The Chef Mr Devinder and his staff were always there at the Buffet making sure that the guests were relishing their spread. The spa was really good where Daniel does a good job ( I had Sarvabyangh & snan) apart from personally helping me to overcome a ligament pull in my foot. We stayed 3 days & 2 nights. The republic day was celebrated grandly with flag hoisting and speech. All the little things were taken care of to make our stay in Kodai a memorable, pleasant and wonderful one.

Stayed Jan 24 to 26th 2014, travelled as a group of Chartered Accountants with families

Room Tip: Choose rooms where u can see sunrise

I stayed at this Sterling property from 21st Jan to 23 Jan 2014. This was a good choice in terms of quality and value for money. The staff was courteous and helpful. The food quality is good however the menu need to have more variety.

We knew ahead that this property was not renovated, we were a group of 4 families and made a reservation just 2 days prior to our trip. Spoke with Susheela at the front desk who was very helpful and ensured that we got 4 rooms from the same block. The rooms were okay, we stayed in 209, 210, 211 ,212. You cannot compare them with Munnar but we hardly spent time in the resort and hence it wasn't an issue. The room heaters worked fine, linen was fresh, rest rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Yes, the door had some gaps and you can say that it's an old property that is begging for renovation, but people like Susheela make up for it. We were there on Pongal and the church below was blaring music for the Sunday mass from 6:00 am which I am sure was an annoyance for folks staying in rooms close to the entrance. Food was average at the restaurant and the buffet choice was very limited. Holiday amenities again we're okay. Overall if you are going with a gang this property is fine.

Good location but far from main city and other popular locations. Views from the resorts are awesome and ambiance is astonishing. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. Evening get together and bonfire made overall experience memorable. Room service is very poor. Travel desk service is just average.

Room Tip: Choose rooms from near the reception.
