The property is nice with all basic amenities like 24 hrs hot water supply. However, wifi facility is available only in the reception area. The premises is very nice. Staffs are cooperating. Breakfast is very good. However, overall maintenance could have been better.

A little cold in the eating area in January (it's an open gazebo) though the staff made a little fire in a container which was lovely...

Our only reservation is the lack of heating in the room during winter. Daytime the temperature was perfect but the nights are chilly. Despite...

This is my second time stay and this resort has earned more respect from me. Daniel , Ruben and Arun had been fantabulous in arranging a better place the second day even though the first day went slightly congested in a smaller one. The crew is active all the time . The only improvement opportunity is to have better ventilation...

A pleasant place to stay and enjoy the vocation. I have been visiting Lilly valley Resort since January-2000 (my first trip to Lilly Valley Resort). Food is as good as home made. Just need to add some varieties in food menu. Overall my experience was pleasant.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups. We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions. Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50% discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays. Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
