One word Awesome. After a year full of hustle bustle and traffic chaos in Bangalore. I was craving for peace and tranquility and I am happy to say I found that in hotel Villa Retreat. right in heart of city next to Coakers walk but hidden from all hustle bustle. Wonderful English style cottage with spell bounding views of the valley and the town. Excellent staff , Room are cozy and sufficient for a couple and a child below 8 years. Rooms are clean and bathrooms have 24x7 hot water. Stay includes coupon of Rs.150 per person as breakfast and it is sufficient. Overall a nice spread and option available to order from. Everything is prepared fresh hence an hours notice is needed for room service. When it comes to the food, this place serves the best food in town period. So called other cafes and restaurants in Kodi are well short of the quality and taste served in villa Retreat. Only catch the restaurant is only for hotel guests which is a very good thing i would say. A place that oozes class and reminds of the luxury of by gone British era.
Now this is what I call perfectionism. They have everything a guest needs. From rooms that make you feel like never stepping out of, to mouth savoring delicacies at the restaurant, they have taken care of every detail that will ensure you have a comfortable stay. The staff is very friendly and hospitable. They offered us great help with travel, queries, and tourist spots. Wifi does not reach the rooms, only available at the reception area, but that isn't a problem as we are visiting the place to enjoy a quiet serene life. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would recommend anyone visiting Kodaikanal to choose Hotel Villa Retreat. It IS the perfect choice !
It was my second time in the Retreat Villa. The rooms are nice and clean and some has a good view into the valley. We had a room with a fireplace, very romatik. The restaurant ist good, and you can order everything to your room. The Villa is located by the Coaker’s Walk, has the same good view like from the walk, and is not far from the center. The staff is friendly and trys to make everything for you. At this point quite a heartfelt thanks to the manager :-) .They gave us some very good recommendations restaurants, transport and activities.
