We stayed for 3 nights and took 4 rooms for 10 adults and enjoyed our stay to the max. Courteous staff especially Ruban and Daniel did a great job to make us feel at home. Frankly speaking the place was more than our expectation in terms of food( homely though speard was limited). Ambience was full of flowers and fruit...

The highlight of our visit to Kodaikanal was our stay at Lilly's valley. The cottage and grounds are lovely and we spent a day reading, walking around the gardens and watching the sunset with tea and onion pakodas! We also enjoyed the south indian breakfast. Don't miss the Idlis and Puris! The cottage was very cosy. It would be great...

A quiet resort, very cosy and comfortable. The perfect location if you are looking for a family holiday and bonding time. The staff is very courteous and extend themselves to help out at all times. The feel of the surroundings is 'more like home' than commercial. They even arranged a surprise campfire which added some excitement to the experience. Thank...

I stayed here with my husband and two young children. The location is lovely but a few km from the lake. We walked it one day, but with the kids it was a little far. A taxi is only 150 and one day the resort even organised us a free trip in on a bus leaving from the resort. There...

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
