"I had a fabulous time..."

  • 5.4/7
  • Posted 6 years ago
I had a fabulous time in kodai international.The service is really excellent and the employees are very friendly.Breakfast is excellent but lunch and dinner are ok.Weather was very chill and kodaikanal is always an excellent place to visit and stay in kodai international adds more memories about the trip

Best Experience: Normal check-in time is 12 pm only but i arrived at 9am but still they are flexible enough to allow check-in without charging for additional day.The whole stay itself is a best experience.They have a big garden ,water falls is really excellent and basket ball court and nets to practice cricket and TT board and they conducted lot of activities specially camp fire and dance in the night.They served an never forgettable breakfast.Service is really good.

Worst Experience: The location of the hotel is not that good,it has lot of other hotels surronded by and looks like more commercial one. Rooms also looking like a typical hotel room and not like resort.When I was checking out credit card machine didnt work so I had to wait for an hour

"In all, exeprience at Kodai..."

  • 6.6/7
  • Posted 6 years ago
In all, exeprience at Kodai International was not just great, it was simply rocking. Reached the hotel on 1st Nov with my wife. We had opted for Winter Bliss package which included Breakfast & Dinner and Local sight-seeing.

Best Experience: All the staffs in the Orchard restaurant were very well-trained & very well behaved.Beautiful garden & lawns.I have attached some beautiful pictures of this very well maintained hotel.

Worst Experience: We had some issues with the Travel Desk at the Hotel, as he informed the cab for going to madurai will be coming at 10:30, but at 9:00 a.m that guy is calling every 10 mins, that taxi has come. Come soon..
Anyways Local sight-seeing arranged by the same Travel desk was wonderful..

"I visited kodai with my..."

  • 5.1/7
  • Posted 7 years ago
I visited kodai with my wife from 14 to 17th of April. As they have a booking office at Chennai, (on a crowded street opposite General Hospital) it was easier for me to reserve the room. We drove down from Chennai via Trichy, Dindugal and Vathalagundu. At Kodai we couldn\'t go to Berijam lake due to some ristrictions at that time. Apart from that we visited all other places. The major activities for the 3 days we stayed were walking up and down at Coacker\'s Walk, cycling around the lake twice on two occasion, Drank masala tea whenever possible etc

Best Experience: At the hotel, when we checked in, the room we booked were not vacated, But we got immediately upgraded to a cottage without any additional cost by the front office. It is a huge property with nice lawns to laze around or for morning walks.There is a nice temple inside the property with soothing music.

Worst Experience: Consistancy in taste of the food is lacking. Once during the whole stay the room service was delayed for an hour. Clearing the plates from the room, after having food is very slow.

"Kodaikanal is a very very..."

  • 5.6/7
  • Posted 7 years ago
Kodaikanal is a very very good hill station...must visit...and if in Kodai i guess Kodai International is the best place...i really liked the appearance of the hotel...it has its own waterfall, a huge park area, a huge lawn area, just wonderful. the food was really really good. we had taken the kurinji blossoms package for 2 nights in a deluxe double room...we had been there during the diwali holidays and i dint get thru a reservation directly from the hotel...but the bangalore counterpart did its best and i got thru a reservation...we also arranged for a pickup from the kodai Stn (it reaches there early morning 6.00) ...but the driver was there on time and promptly took us to the hotel...it took a little time to check in...seems like some construction or repair or maintanence work was going on in our block coz the room looked like two rooms were joined recently and was smelling of fresh paint, also the room opposite ours was being painted...anyways overall kodai is a must see place, it has lot of site seeing options...the lake is a happening place...u can go in for a bicycle ride, horse ride near the lake or of course a boat ride in the lake...i went for all of them...it was very misty during the time i had been there (in oct) so it got a little difficult to see some the places especially the pillar rock...we waited for 20 mins just to see a hazy glimpse of it. the trek thru the bear shola falls was just lovely (though later i realised how dangerous it was to do that with my 2 year old and without the proper trekking gear - i mean the shoes), Coaker\'s walk was also a lovely experience.

Best Experience: The hotel overall is a very good staying experience....i just can\'t mention one thing as the best one...

Worst Experience: well the room looked like it needed some more work to be done on it ....coz i cud clearly see that the rooms opposite ours were being worked upon...so maybe we had checked in to a room which still had some more work to be done...so it looked a little incomplete...

"It was a pleasant stay..."

  • 6.2/7
  • Posted 8 years ago
It was a pleasant stay at a comfortable place. Travel desk has various options for sight seeing. Most of the places are nearby, but not walkable. If you own a vehicle then, its pretty convenient. Else, you can rent vehicle to go around places.

Inside the resort, you can find a beautiful Rose garden, nice children\'s park, a rabbit farm[?!] and you can see a beautiful small waterfall nearby. You can also get volleyball or table tennis or some other indoor games from the front desk.

You can surely have a memorable nice time here!!

Best Experience: Excellent food and service.

Worst Experience: I was in the ground floor suite. When kids are playing on the corridor or some people stand there and keeps on chatting, it disturbs!!
