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.

... than inspiring. The kids I’m winding through the mountains with in Munnar now hail from places hailed back home as havens of youth culture. California is widely represented here, as well as Maryland’s coastal bays, while Arianne and I serve as the sole representatives for the Midwest. I am trying not to harbor ill will towards my home, as it keeps charge over all my loved ones, but it is impossible to deny that buried within me is a distaste for the culture ...
... 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 ...
We've decided that while were on placement, we'll try and do trips out of Kochi on the weekends, so on Saturday morning, we headed out early from our guesthouse with Jinu, a taxi driver we hired for the weekend (or supposedly did, more on that later). Munnar is towards the border of Tamil Nadu and home to Kerala's tea plantations. The altitude means it's cool, especially at night which was a relief after a sticky few days in Kochi.
