We offer only a single accommodation suitable for a Couple or a Nuclear family at this point in time which means total privacy. The Accommodation comes with an attached bath and a small kitchenette and is furnished to make it comfy and cosy (If your partner finds the room too cosy and wishes to lounge around while you want to be up and about, we will help you drag him/her out of bed for a nominal fee).

We designed the accommodation to make it reasonably self sufficient and offer privacy while enjoying the benefits of the main house and its surroundings. The Kitchenette is fairly equipped to give you that little freedom you very much need while on a holiday. On prior notice, Dinner can be arranged on all days while Lunch can be arranged only on weekends. Food can also be bought in from restaurants in town based on preferences and availability, while you stay back to indulge further. Come and stay with us and experience a unique feeling of Serenity!

As you drive up the busy Kodaikanal roads, you realise that the quiet hand of change spares no place. Serenita, nestled quite obscurely in the hills though tries to give you a chance to experience moments of quietude. Add to that the hospitality of Ravindran...More

Interaction with guests
True to it’s name, this is our home and we live here through the year. We are more than happy to interact closely with our guests but at the same time leave that choice to them. Food is served in the room as requested. The whole idea here is to share our experiences while hearing out our guests as well.

About the neighborhood
Serenità Homestay is perched on a secluded and serene hillside overlooking the Pethuparai valley and the distant Palani plains. Accessible by an asphalted road (not the best of roads!), one can come in by their own vehicle or a cab...for those really adventurous, one can trek too...be prewarned about the gradients though coming in is mostly downhill. Situated inside a gated property, the place is as safe as it can be, parking is no issue as this is not a thorougfare. The only neighbours we have are a few farmers way below (you may wish to give them a lift when they ask for it...) and a neighbouring house whose owners come in probably twice a year
How to get there
Direct Bus service from Bangalore and Chennai; we would have to pick you up from town or a convenient point enroute. Closest train station is Kodaikanal Road Station; one has to hire a cab from there to our place. There are some local bus operators who have buses from the Station to town and Vice Versa in time for the trains to Chennai and Bangalore. Closest Airport is Madurai which is about 120kms from Kodaikanal. take a cab from there to Kodaikanal which is a 3 hour journey
