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.

The “Kodai Hill Country Resort” is a wonderful place that is constructed over multiple levels near the mountain valley; it is made of stone structures that are neatly spread out. They have a beautiful garden and well-manicured lawns. It looks great. They have collaborated with Mahindra holidays as well.
Now to the title of this post, as I checked-in, I checked on the ...
... goodbyes and began the long and arduous journey back up the several thousand feet we had just descended. As our distance from the village grew greater, so did my desire to return to it. All I wanted was to stay in that place and learn from those that live in a way that has been lost in my home country. I turned back every few feet or so to take in the sight of that scenic perch of life within the crease of those hills. As we turned the corner and our adventure went out of ...
... got back to the resort, we had our lunch. After which, me and a friend went to the local market to buy some drinks. Then we sat in our room and watched movies. After a while, I went to my room to pack my stuff because we have to go back to Hyderabad. After a while, I started watching The Big Bang Theory, until my friends called us to thew Activity Room. We played a lot of Pool until Dinner. Then we stayed up all night drinking Pepsi and watching movies.
