“A home away from home”
Sunday 26th of February 2017   Chennai   Rajiv Kumar Singh

To start with the resort has a mind blowing view, which includes the morning sunrise with the chirping of the birds, it’s just lovely. The resort is located in close vicinity of Coakers Park and Kodai Lake. Right from the time of booking till the day me and my wife checked out, it was a warm feeling and staying in the resort made us think it as the second home. We had booked the signature suite and our first view of the room left us stunned. There was a sitting area with couches and a bedroom with a kingsize bed and attached bathroom. It even had a quaint little fireplace in the bedroom. Rooms are kept neat and tidy with all the basic amenities. The windows in the rooms are so clean that sometimes u feel like there is no glass at all. The blessing in disguise for the resort is the team, each and every one is soo friendly and they took care of our every needs. One thing is remarkable that the Guest handling skills of Mr. Shyam (GM), he is very friendly and helpful. We stayed there for 3 nights and within that period we became close to him and is our friend now .I have been to many hotels in different places but never seen a GM coming and talking to you on a daily basis. We stayed in the suite room(101) and had the best view. I can keep writing but wanna stick to important thing which wil help the visitors. One best place to stay in kodaikanal is Villa retreat. Personally felt like being at home with a warm environment. The staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. Breakfast was great as usual (a bit slow served though), but I understand that they have limited staff and a small kitchen and we are on holiday :). The smile on the face of everyone makes up for it though. The staff was very helpful in arranging for the tour and we had a lot of fun throughout the tour exploring kodai and its beauty. Before I end, it would be unfair if I dont mention a few thanks to, Prasad & the front desk team, Mani, Gopi & the service team and the security guard!
