TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Villa Retreat Kodaikanal
Great main building, really idyllic setting. Great food, the best in Kodaikanal. The room were ok, but a bit overpriced for what they were. A bit scruffy around the corners. No heating in room. Heater can be provided, but you have to pay extra. However, it is in my opinion the only place to stay in Kodaikanal unless you want to go out side the village.

Not wasting anytime, we seat ourselves at the first food shack, which would become our main source of food during our stay in Munnar, and after several iterations of entering and re-entering our order, feast on a delicious smorgasbord of omelettes, dosas, and chai, while watching an array of rickshaws, trucks, and buses whizzing by on the road in front of us.

... to our wheels. 'On the go' we had noticed a restaurant from where we had dinner lastnight. We had our breakfast , geared up again & prepared to get amazed by the beauty of KODAI. We came across fog covered mountains & fog hugging forests. We took lot of pictures till our cameras ran out of power. After watching the mindblowing sceneries of KODAI for a couple of hours, we noticed it was time ...
... side of the lake where the toursist visit. As like any tourist place there were lot of stalls and lot of garbage like plastic bags were thrown by the side of the lake. It really saddenned me with the apathy of our people(locals and tourists both) towards maintaining such a heavenly place.
Next we went to the Mattupetty Dam(currently under controversy between Kerala and Tamil Nadu). It is a beautiful picnic spot with ...
