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.

Kodaikanal is a small, intimate, misty and mountainous hill station also in Tamil ...
... up in the afternoon so was pretty relieved when we arrived for lunch at 3. We'd managed to communicate to Jinu that we wanted him to pick us up from this end point, and were pretty startled when he was actually there waiting.
Back at the guesthouse now, we all have got a bit of a Sunday feeling (school tomorrow). Planning on changing to the general medical ward this week, will let you know how that works out soon!
... the fact that he was probably the cutest thing going, you almost wanted to throw out a few pairs of pants and pack him deep in your bag to take home. He would forget you asked him a question, answer imaginary questions, borrow money and never repay you, offer tea three times in 5 minutes and tell you always and regularly to sit and enjoy his view out front, not to mention explain how ...
