Just next to coakers walk, and very close to choc shops and other attractions *Rooms were decent but we had to pay extra for...

Villa Retreat is a perfect hotel for its location. Just outside the centre of town (a ten minute walk) it has 17 rooms and a garden/dining area overlooking the valley, which is usually shrouded in mist - but that only adds to the ambiance. Ivy covered walls, flowing plants all along the paths to the rooms, and a stone, English...

Stayed here for 3 days from 18th to 21st October with my family. It was a vacation after a long time and the stay in this Hotel was just the icing on the cake on top of what Kodai has to offer. The valley views from the suite was just excellent. It has one of the best location in Kodai....

Villa Retreat is an add on to the beauty of Kodaikanal . A prime location, beautiful garden, perfect villa with a superb view. The stay was simple and very pleasant and would be totally unfair if i don't mention how friendly the staff were. The rates are reasonable and is totally worth it.

I was in this hotel for 2 nights with family. The location is fantastic. The view from the rooms .. Kodai city was mesmerising. Service and food excellent. The tea/coffe was made available at 06.30 am. But for us , who get up early around 5.00 am I suggest to keep a coffeemaker in the room. Also Kodai was a...

We had a wonderful time at the Villa Retreat. From the moment we arrive to this beautiful Shangri-La, Remington greeted us with the most attentive service. We were so well taken care of and the staff were overwhelmingly attentive to our interests and needs. It was a place we only wished we had more time. We were able to relax...

We stayed at the Villa Retreat (Diwali week) and we had an awesome experience. Starting with the reservation booking and multiple follow-ups from the reservation team was just the beginning of first-class service! On arrival, we were showed into our rooms (CLASSIC SUITE - VALLEY VIEW and CLASSIC ROOM - VALLEY VIEW). The rooms were pretty impressive but we could...

We stayed in the apartment and its real good experience for entire family. Though its monsoon time, the room was clean and comfortable. Look forward to staying again next time on a sunny day. My advise to the hotel is to keep coffee maker in room, with some sachets of instant coffee and tea bags. It makes it perfect.

This was a family trip and it was a pleasant one. The hotel has the best location being just next to Coaker's walk (parallel) and exactly opposite Bryant's Park and the Kodai Lake. We were in the suite room which is spacious enough. The lawn with all the flowers just outside the rooms is the best place to have all...

I want to start with the location. The place is located just close to the market area and still has a beautiful valley location. Two of the famous landmark are just outside the hotel area. The scenic view of the valley from the restaurant and from the few rooms is breath taking. The hotel is well maintained. They have a...
