I booked my vacation here based on TripAdvisor ratings. Helpful Courteous Staff (Mohammed, Bhagyaraj, Gopinath, Dina were the ones I interacted frequently) & Management - Shyam - General Manager was the highlight of the stay. The rooms are acceptable & clean. If you are booking a suite, request for the larger ones as some tend to be relatively smaller. Water...

Villa Retreat is more like a holiday homestay rather than a hotel I would definitely recommend it as a first choice to anybody who visits Kodaikanal. However, the booking should be made well in advance to reserve the best rooms as this place is in high demand. In complete contrast to the crowded road outside, as soon as you enter,...

In the partly croudy area of Kodaikanal this place was really a quiet place to stay and to enjoy the view over the countryside and the valley. The personal was friendly. Brought extra Wood for the cheminee.

A week ago my husband and I stayed at this beautiful property on Coakers Walk. The resort is very well maintained, calm and has a lovely view from the dining area where you can sip on coffee and overlook the valley. The location is pretty good and close to many eateries which is just a 3-5 minute walk away. Well...

The plan to visit Kodai was to escape the summer heat in Bangalore for few days. Little did we expect that the weather would be so chilly and mesmerising. The stay at Villa Retreat along with the magnificent view, the perfect landscape, the lovely clouds floating by, the feel-at-home food and the warm hospitality all made it a trip to...
