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.

Next morning, first thing was blowing off the candles and the birthday cake. It was my 29th Birthday, "Happy Birthday to Me" :-D. We had plans to visit the Berijam lake inside a reserve forest (25 km off Kodai town) but later we dropped that idea due to the additional overhead in getting the permission from ...
... to those that hold fears from abroad I would have to scoff. India is what you make of it, and though surely my time spend in the hot and dusty plains of Tamil Nadu will resemble little of that spend in the tropical hills, the same attitude of exploration is one I’ll try to keep me through good times and bad.
Top point was an important moment for me. Here, I took several moments to set myself up on a stone overlooking the un-capture-able and closed my ...
... for lunch we had a quick detour through Munnar market. Its a small but bustling market area and lots of things to buy, the foremost being "Tea". Best place to get good quality and variety of tea is the Tata outlet locally known as KDTP (Kannan Devan Tea Plantations), Kannan Devan being the names of the first workers employed by Tata back in 1900 when Tata started the tea plantations in Munnar. Today almost 95% of the entire ...
