Places to stay in Palani
ECONUT FARMHOUSE Econut farmhouse is located on the Palani to Kodaikanal road, about 16 km before you reach Kodaikanal town. The farmhouse is conveniently located next to the road, yet hidden from view and private. It is in a quiet area with very few houses around, and in the midst of an organic farm. There is a panoramic view of the valley below, with the plains visible for about 200 km, on clear days. Our caretaker couple will attend to all your needs, including preparation of meals.
The climate is pleasant most of the year with a minimum temperature of 19 C and maximum of 26 C in summer, and min 13 and max 16 in winter. The farm is about 2 acres in size, and is full of plum trees, with coffee growing underneath, and avocado, orange, hill bananas and jungle trees in between. We have a natural spring as a perennial water source, with excellent quality of water. The farmhouse consists of a hall and kitchen, with a bedroom, bathroom and 2 sit outs. There are 3 cots and 2 more folding beds, plus several extra mattresses. The house can comfortable accommodate from 1 to 4 people, with a maximum of 5. We grow some vegetables too in the garden around the house, so you often get to use freshly picked organic vegetables for the meals. We have a caretaker family staying on the farm, who look after the farm as well as attend to the guests. They have been with us for 35 years and are loyal and reliable. Our cook will prepare your meals for you, and you can get her to make it the way you like. We do not charge you per meal, instead you are charged only for the provisions (groceries) used. This works out much lower than a per meal charge. You can even bring or buy your own groceries if you like, in which case there will be no other charges for the food. We have installed a solar powered lighting system, so you can be sure that there will always be lights, even if there is a power cut all around. You can have a campfire made for you at night, if you wish, which will be charged Rs.250 extra. We can provide accommodation for a driver too, at an extra cost of Rs.200 per night. Please inform us before hand. Things to do: - Sit around, relax, look at the view and unwind. - Go for walks, our caretaker will guide you as to the routes - Visit some of our friends around and down in the valley, again the caretaker will guide you - Go up to the town, see the sights, go boating in the lake, cycling, eat out, and come home to a hot meal - Sit around a bonfire at night. Note: Our place is meant for rest and relaxation, for you to get away from the fast life and slow down, unwind. It is not a happening place. It is quiet, there are only three houses visible nearby, the rest is all greenery. Other than the farmhouse and organic farm, we are also running an Organic and Health food store in Kodaikanal, and in Chennai, for the last 23 years.
Econut Farmhouse is located away from the Kodaikanal town, in a very quiet area, with mostly open countryside around, and views streching for miles and miles. To give you an illustration, there are only 4 families in 100 acres of land around you. The area around you is all either wild open spaces, or farm lands.
  • It was an amazing experience at the Eco Nut Farmstay. We went by the reviews and description and the experience totally matched our expectations. Shrikant guided us very well and arranged for everything we required because of which everything went smoothly. It's a lovely farmhouse amidst the greens which is very cozy and clean. It's very spacious and all the required amenities have been taken care of. There's a couple who are the caretakers and they are an amazing host! They take care of all the requirements and treated us so well that we were very much feeling at home. The food is pretty amazing and plenty and they go an extra mile to meet any specific demand. We are glad to take a tour of his farm on the last day, without which our trip would have been incomplete. Every morning waking up to the sound of birds chirping was very calming. The Star Gazing Experience was the best and frankly I've never earlier witnessed such a beautiful sky! I'm definitely visiting again.

  • My friends are already annoyed by how much I advertise this place. Honestly , felt kodaikanal to be quite commercialized and boring , everything could have been covered easily at one go. I suggest you keep one full day for the homestay, the homestay and the trek and walk surrounding the place is better than the trek at dolphin nose . Food is damn cheap, you are not charged extra for food, just for the groceries which is again quite cheap. The caretaker couple was honestly the highlight of our trip, sweet energetic , polite . TLDR , homestay is worth it. Meticulously clean , beautiful view. Srikanth is helpful and makes sure you find the place, and settle in comfortably .

  • The place had a wonderful view of the mountains. It was a beautiful lil place. Place is about 12 km away from kodaikanal...so,you have to take a bus ride for about 40 minutes to get there..but bus to Kodaikanal is available right infront of the house itself which comes almost at 1 hour intervals..

  • A must stay place with an amazing view and unmatched hospitality. Free yourself from the crowd in this place and enjoy the serene ambience

    Saravanan2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • When you want to get away, this is the perfect getaway. Hidden away in the hills, we got lost in the mist more than once. Fresh fruits from the farm welcomed us. The highlight was the warmth of the elderly couple who made this farm-stay more of a homestay. We just needed to say what we wanted for breakfast or dinner and it was on our plate. If you're planning to go up to Kodaikanal everyday, it might help if you're driving down and have a vehicle on hand. It's the perfect place to switch off, and recharge. Thank you Mrs and Mr Subramani (the caretakers) and Shrikant, the owner.

  • If you want to "get away", why compromise? Go straight here. Hidden along the hill road leading to the Palani temple, just 14-odd kms from Kodaikanal, is this gem of an authentic experience. Take a few steps down from the road and you're inside a charming farmhouse (that could easily be marketed as a cottage) overlooking the valley. In one word, serene. Taking care of the property, and guests, are an elderly couple. Just tell them what you feel like having and it'll be on your plate, piping hot. Not to mention freshly picked plums, passion fruit, oranges and even an avacado or two from the farm. This couple went the extra mile to ensure our farm stay was more like a homestay. (My 7-year-old was overwhelmed by their kindness and is insisting now that I mention the old man getting her balloons from the store.) Having your own vehicle will help go around. Even otherwise, we saw buses plying between Kodai and Palani stopping right outside the farm gate to pick up passengers. We rode a bike up to Kodai on one day and hired a cab on another. One entire day we spent recharging our senses in the lap of nature. You don't really need to go up to Kodai if what you're seeking is a retreat. We visited in peak winter. A sit-out overlooks the valley and you can simply be engulfed in the mist as you watch it rise above you. You can also bask in the warmth of a bonfire at night. A climb down to the farm gave us a trekking experience. Another sit-out has been created for adventure seekers to camp/relax on the hill. The house is kept clean by the caretakers. Despite their warmth, it can get cold in December. But we were advised in advance to carry a lot of winter wear by Shrikant, who owns the property. All the basic comforts are there. Ample blankets, hot water, even solar power backup that allowed us lights when there was a rare power failure (once, for less than 10 minutes, in five days). Water that flows as a perennial stream from the hills above is what is used for drinking and bathing. Airtel worked at some spots in the property and some places a short walk away. Not having the internet 24/7 truly helped us "get away" and spend time together as family.

    Gokul2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the hospitality and food made by cook was fresh and delicious. Location is awesome. Shrikant is super great in guiding.

    Hareesh2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • I have no words to express the experience we had. The perfect location of the room, cleanliness and the view was out of this world. Not to mention the awesome food and the care taken by Meena aunty and her husband.

    Fully furnished apartment with drawing , kitchen and bedroom and western toilet with running hot water, TV and a room heater. At a scenic location In Kodaikanal , part of a gated community with a restaurant in the campus.Breakfast and tea can be made at the apartment which is equipped with refrigerator, micro over, gas stove, bread toaster and kitchenware.Facing east giving a great view every morning when the sun rises, calm, green and serene ambiance.
    East facing, with a huge lawn in front, and great view of the hills , sun rise being a sight to enjoy, noise and pollution free clean environment,
    It is a sprawling gated community with 165 residential units used primarily as vacation home by the owners.
  • We enjoyed our stay at this property , everything that is required to spend couple of days were available in the apartment. The host was available on phone when required. The gated community where this apartment is part of is perched on top of the hill, so while it takes you slightly away from the centre of the town , you also find yourself at what appeared to be the highest point of the town , the view was splendid - we had spent a lot of time enjoying the sunrise and sunset during our stay from different parts of the property and we loved it. The stretch of the road leading to the property had the last part in poor condition.

  • On top of the world! Pull your curtains down and you see the beautiful kodaikanal sky and a perfect sunrise. The place is very cozy, the kitchen has all the basic amenities for tea and a light breakfast. The canteen is right opposite to the house, so you can order in anything you want to eat. The host is really helpful and kind. The view is just amazing! They have a geyser in the kitchen and the bathroom as well. The hall is perfect for a nice evening and they have a TV as well. Overall a great experience!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Misty Mountains. This listing has a beautiful view - it faces the east, so mornings are especially beautiful. The rooms are well maintained, the washroom is clean, and the staff at the community really helpful. Theres's a small kitchen should you choose to cook something - though the restaurant/canteen serves reasonably priced and tasty food too. Would definitely recommend the place - for lazy walks, some time with the friendly dogs, and the really warm and welcoming full-time residents of the place. Though Mr Ram doesn't stay at the premises, we had no trouble during our stay. The only minor downside - the road leading to the place isn't great, so you might end up spending a bit more on cabs if you're looking to travel to and from the lake area. Would recommend a vehicle of your own.

    Vineetha2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Everything was food except the road towards the location. The last 200 meters were terribly bad. Except that point, we had great stay.

    Narayanan2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a bit away from the lake and the elevation in quite good. You get a good view of the valley from here. It is a gated community and hence very safe. There is a kitchen and you get close to home cooked, delicious food. We had a very good time. Thanks to Ram! Hoping to travel again soon.

    விமல்2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was an excellent place and we had a pleasant stay for 4 days. The property is located 5 kms outside the town. Taxis might charge you between 250-300 rupees. The place is Serene, quaint and calm. Since it is located within the premises of a gated community, there is no security issue. The place has a working refrigerator, gas stove, sandwich maker, toaster, electric rice cooker, water kettle, kitchen sink with hot water and all required kitchen utensils for at least 3 adults. You just have to be prepared well if you are planning to cook for yourselves, as you have to travel atleast a km to buy anything which you might need. There is also a canteen right in front of the property where breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served based on order/request. You cannot just walkin to eat. You can swipe and pay by card at teh canteen. They serve both Veg and Non-Veg cuisine and the taste was pretty decent. Temperature goes as low as 10 degrees during the night time (September). You can hire a room heater for rent from the security desk at the entrance. They also can arrange for transportation for you to return if needed. Overall a perfect location with all amenities; a peaceful getaway to relax.

  • Very tidy and lovely apartment equipped with everything you need. The view from the place is fantastic as well. We had a great stay!

  • Wonderful experience. If you want to enjoy Nature in true sense then must visit this place. Sanjeewani helped us with everything including local travel,food etc. Mr.Muttu and others made us comfortable with place and served us with tasty food. If anyone loves forest and andvanture then this place is for you.

    Shraddha2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Was looking to spend a weekend in a secluded and peaceful village near Kodaikanal with my Mother and found Kookal to be the one. Kookal is located in between Poombarai and Mannavanur and we booked the mud house at Sanjeewani's property. Sanjeewani and people who work there were friendly and looked after us well and offered homely food of our choice. The common restroom for the mud house is just beside the room so didn't face much difficulty in using it. Although we didn't go out to visit any places on first day, we had good time with the dogs over there and visited Kookal lake which is the most serene place in that area and walk-able distance from the stay. Near by tourist attractions are Mannavanur lake and Poombarai village which can be reached out through bus or taxi. We booked a taxi to reach the stay place from Kodaikanal and while returning back to Kodaikanal , we visited the near by villages. There is no network coverage for Airtel in the villages outside Kodaikanal but other networks works well. Had a peaceful time without noise pollution and people crowd :)

    Shobana2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This stay is situated at the most serene place you can imagine. The hostess and the caretakers are really sweet and would always be at your beck and call. The food is scrumptious, especially ask for chicken spicy curry and omlette rolls! The place is really connected to the nature around it and they have done an amazing job with gardening and beautifying the place naturally. Will recommend this place to anyone who wants to de-stress and connect with nature.

    Omkar2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • 1. Nice location, very near to the Kookaal lake. 2. Excellent hospitality from everyone, from the host to the caretakers. Special thanks to Mr.Muthu for taking care of food, and Mr.Santhosh for taking us around to scenic spots. 3. Friendly, cute dogs. 4. Decent levels of privacy even when the place is filled with guests.

    Situated in Karuna Dham this beautiful geodesic Shaped Chalet is an off-grid home with solar power and spring water. It is cozy and beautiful space to enjoy. The chalet is private and looks over stunning views. It is secluded and has good privacy. The price INCLUDES breakfast at our restaurant. A truly special place to retreat and rejuvenate. Please note that it is a rustic nature area and not a hotel like experience. More information at www.karunadham.org.in
    The Sunrise Chalet is a rustic and special place, but it is not a hotel. If you are looking for a spotless place with hotel like services this may not be for you. If however you want to be in a stunning location where nature does the pampering, is it quiet and very peaceful then look no further! The location is within Karuna Dham and is an established guest house and organic farm since many years. The sunrise chalet is a small and very cozy and comfortable. You should feel very peaceful and happy in this space. The view from the chalet is simply breathtaking and you could happily sit and enjoy the view for days and weeks on end. Hot water is available in the shower 24/7 with a gas on demand water heater. You simply turn the shower tap and it will work. The entire chalet is powered by a dedicated solar power system. It is new and in good condition. You should find you have no issue charging your phone or having enough power for lights etc at night. The cloudiest days are in November and there may on occasion be a shortage of power on very cloudy days. The kitchen is outside and in a large covered, protected area that overlooks the views and the nature. It is lovely to cook whilst listening to the nature and looking at the views. There is also a vegetarian community restaurant 10 minutes walk away Breakfast is INCLUDED in the price. You may get lunch or dinner at extra cost. Please note that IF you are booking for 3 people there will be no floor space left inside. It will be all cozy with a double bed and mattress on the floor. There is plenty of space to hang out under the veranda during the day and evenings.
    One of the most beautiful locations in the world. Tranquil nature, waterfalls, streams and birds. A view to enjoy all day long. You will be undisturbed by the sound of cars, horns or other city like disturbances. In a remote and safe location. Pure Bliss! There is a private shower with 24/7 hot water. The toilet is western style. There is wifi available at no extra cost.
  • Karuna Dham is located around 11 kms or a 30 mins drive from Kodai town. The road to the place is not in a very good condition currently so it's imperative and could only be traversed in a jeep. Alex had kindly provided the number of the Jeep driver, Murugesh, who charged around 350 rs for one ride. The chalet is a 15 mins walk through the forest/farms from the reception. Once we arrived at the Chalet, it was everything we expected and more. The view from the chalet is breathtaking. There's a spacious porch where one can sit, relax and enjoy the view. The open kitchen is stocked with all the basic utensils and whatever you need, you could get from restaurant/reception area. The washrooms are clean and basic. The hot water bath is one of the best experience that the chalet has to offer I think! :P The room has a comfortable bed which can easily accommodate two people and some extra mattresses if needed. There is also space for a bonfire in the front yard. There is wifi but you won't really need it. Based on the suggestions from the volunteers and fellow travellers, we ventured out on small treks to the nearby waterfall, the "rock", the hilltop and some walks through the woods with no particular destination in mind. We stayed there for three days and two nights and were lucky to have had a clear sky on the third morning when we witnessed the most beautiful sunrise, right in front of the chalet. Overall, it was a much needed break from the monotony of city life and a great opportunity to experience unadulterated, pristine parts of nature that people in the city often get disconnected from.

  • Alex’s place is perfect for a proper getaway in the Kodaikanal area. Up in the mountains, you’re completely immersed in nature. The sunrise view can be seen from bed, or a short walk to the nearby rock offers an incredible view. The jeep journey makes the place accessible and the community of people living on the farm area are extremely welcoming and friendly, with great food available for 3 meals per day if wanted. Highly recommend!

    Milan2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • If you're looking to escape the noise and heat of the plains, are reasonably fit and sure-footed, and looking for an adventure that you won't forget in a hurry, then this cozy Dome on the side of a mountain should be top of your list. Breathe in the fantastic views from the Dome, the top of the nearby peak or the "Meditation Rock"; trek along mountain paths to the Restaurant for simple but delicious meals, or simply relax with a good book. Alex is attentive to your needs, and while this accommodation is closer to the 'basic' end of the spectrum than places in town, it makes up for it by providing a powerful 'immersion' into a unique place. We stayed 3 nights, and it wasn't enough....

    Bruce2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • A superb dome/chalet with a front porch that's larger than the pictures show. On the first day, we awoke before dawn to catch the sunrise, and witnessed one of the best sunrises. The sky was a symphony of pink, orange and yellow hues with just the perfect cloud cover to witness the scattering of light. There's a roaring waterfall nearby with a pool of ice cold water you can dip into momentarily (so worth it). We found this the perfect place to meditate, paint and sketch to the sounds of birds and the waterfall. Alex also provided clean linens at the last minute for the third person who joined us. Do carry cold weather clothing as the temperates are quite low (7-8 degrees) at night, also, the steaming hot water available for baths are exquisite in this weather. The open air kitchen was simply perfect, we carried our own cooking supplies (this helps save a lot of money which would otherwise be wasted on the exorbitantly expensive and frankly basic food at the karuna farms restaurant). Apart from the blip with the restaurant, cannot recommend this place amidst the lush green forest enough!

    Abhishek2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • A place where nature bestows its beauty and people like Alex maintain the harmony with the nature through every aspect, be it chalet or be it pathways to the chalet. This place is not for luxury of materialist things but to accumulate wealth of memories of beautiful nature, hospitality and soulfulness.

    Yogesh2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great view, place is worth for the view and experience. One need to be prepared to be here,Very basic amenities. Need not expect any service. If you have time in Kodaikānāl you should visit here.

    *1BR w pvt. bathroom *Comfy for 3 adults max with one extra floor mattress in the room. *4 Kms away from the crowded town centre, overlooking a misty valley, far from the madding crowd *Experience 'real silence' means! * For people that need a break from their regular/stressful routine *Perfect for nature enthusiasts *Perfect for Honeymoon couples ( Special packages available) *Couples looking to kindle their relationships with their special someone (") *Cosmopolitan host welcomes all
    Elaborating on the Cosmopolitan host a bit here as there is space constraint in the Listing description box. We think that life is beautiful and too short to be stuck in a mindset with labels, genders, orientations etc. Hence we welcome all guests from any caste, color, orientation and marital statuses. Come and celebrate life in our love filled villa. Kodai has been a popular hill destination for decades because of its lovely flora, fauna, weather etc. Though the over exploitation has taken a toll and the heart of the town is sometimes a bit crowded and noisy. Our property is tucked about 4 kms away in a nice nook, far from the madding crowd, pun intended. This gives you the liberty of enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee/ cocoa & watch the mist unfolding from the balcony...say hello to a low flying cloud, if any, but more importantly, breathe some fresh air. If you are looking to connect with your special someone over a quiet meal with glass of wine, beer or something stronger, in a serene environment this would be a nice place. We offer you a hot breakfast per our fixed menu, complimentary with the room. We have an in-house cook trained by an award winning Chef, the hostess Girija, herself. We have a fixed menu for Lunch and Dinner if so required by guests. Special requests can also be entertained if received well in advance. Please note that L/D are chargeable. Kodai being a hilly locale has constraints when in comes to growing its own produce. Hence almost everything has to be transported from nearby towns. Historically, Tamil Nadu has been backwards when it came to concepts like rain water harvesting etc. causing a strain in the levels of underground water levels and water tables. The present Govt. is taking some steps towards improving this and hopefully in the coming years things will be better. So we would earnestly request you to help curtail unnecessary water usage.
    Kodaikanal is a city near Palani in the hills of the Dindigul district in Tamilnadu. Its name in the Tamil language means "The Gift of the Forest". Kodaikanal is also known as the 'Princess of Hill stations' with a long history as a retreat & a popular tourist destination. Season months Peak season: April–June Low season: Feb-March; July–September Second season : October–January
  • It was a nice experience. Received better assistance during a critical situation. Much appreciated Mr. Raja’s Good support and time. There is an excellent view from the Villa. Highly recommended this place for a stay in Kodaikanal. Food were served very fast and it was nice, especially the Idli and Chicken 65. Will prefer to stay in this place during my next visit too.

    Nibin2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay! :) This beautiful place is at little distance from the main town and offers excellent valley view from the balcony. This place is serene and quite peaceful. Mr. Subash and Mrs. Girija are awesome hosts. Girija aunty was in touch constantly over phone replying to our queries and guided us to house as soon as we landed in Kodaikanal. Subash uncle has arranged a cab for us for local sight seeing and was very helpful whenever needed. The caretakers and cook were awesome. The food and service by Basu & Karthik is delicious and prompt. We would love to visit again for the awesome views the place offers and the beautiful nature. The valley view from the balcony is incredible. Thank you Girija aunty and Subash uncle for making our short stay awesome! :)

    Shiva2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing , if your looking for a peaceful time with an amazing balcony view this is the place to be , the hospitality is exceptional and the food is descent , having to play with a lab puppy named buddy is a bonus

    Bidesh2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful, hands down one of the most scenic spots in Kodai. Nestled up in the clouds, and when the clouds disperse, you can see an amazing panorama view. It is pricey but mostly worth it. However, the food at the homestay is very expensive, so consider eating beforehand or bringing snacks. Karthik is a good cook though. Also the WiFi is spotty.

    Alex2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was an amazing experience. The location is so high on the hills that you would be literally living within the clouds. The view from the balcony is just too awesome. The hospitality: It was amazing. The host and the caretaker/cook are both very friendly. You can just stay in and enjoy the delicious food all day. I loved how they consider each feedback you give and implement it instantly. I will really love to visit Kodaikanal again and stay with you people.

    Sourav2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • The location is excellent. You will not need to get out of the villa to find beauty in Kodaikanal. The hosts were really welcoming and helpful. 11/10 would recommend. Witness it for yourself.

  • After reading the rave reviews I was delighted that everyone was correct. This place is a gem! Ramdev and his staff really go out of their way to make you feel extra special. The food was home cooked and delicious. The weather was wet, cold and cloudy but we were still able to get in some great afternoons in town to see the sites. Lazy mornings spent lounging in the room were delightful, especially when the girls came by every-so-often to make sure the fire was still going. The only thing I wished we would've had was a kettle in the room to make our own tea, but we could go to the common area and get tea whenever we wanted it. Sometimes the rain made it tough though! Overall it was a splendid stay and we will definitely stop again when we visit Kodaikanal in the future.

    Monica2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • I feel so lucky to have found this place in Kodai. None of the pictures do justice to the actual beauty of this place. Mr. Ramdev took such good care of us and fed us so much food(delicious is an understatement). I had to cancel all my sight seeing plans as soon as I entered the property because you wouldn’t want to step out. I feel I couldn’t get enough of it in those 2 days. The hospitality was far beyond our expectations. There are a few places where you would want to spend more time and this was definitely one such stay. I can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for a blissful stay Mr. Ramdev.

    Shivangi2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful and picture perfect place. No mobile service, a perfect detox from the digital clutter. Ramdev is an amazing host and his team of helpers are ready to help with a smile. The sceneries would make your camera go crazy:)

    Kishan2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the cottage is such that you get to see the most amazing view of the hills in Kodaikanal. You would wake up to the serene and beautiful morning view of kodai. The host Ramdev is very helpful and friendly. The food served in the cottage would make you feel at home. If your lucky enough you might get to see a herd of Bison.

    Ankita2019-07-16T00:00:00Z

    Kodaikanal, Tamil Nadu, India

    Kookal is a beautiful and quaint 32 km drive away from Kodaikanal, the Princess of Hills. If you are able to overcome the temptation of stopping by at the charming spots that dot the route, you can cover this distance of 32 km in a little over an hour. It is a perfect destination for those on the lookout for offbeat places to stay. The 'Tent for 2' is pitched inside a fully fenced and gated, 1 acre area which is part of a 5 acre property. The entire 5 acres is also fully fenced.
    The 'Tent for 2' has a Living Room and a Bedroom. The Living Room is provided with 2 Beach Chairs and a Coffee Table. The Bedroom is provided with a double size Air Mattress, Bed Sheet, Pillows, 10 degree Centigrade Sleeping Bags with fresh Liners, Camp Lights etc. We also have Sleeping Bags for 0 degree Centigrade for colder nights. Torch Lights and Umbrellas are available with the Caretaker. Kindly request if needed.
    Kookal has the biggest patch of the rare Shola forests in the entire upper Palani Hills located in the Western Ghats. It would be interesting to note that the Western Ghats is one of the two biodiversity hotspots in India, out of the 35 worldwide. Kookal is home to 165 species of butterflies and a number of relatively uncommon birds such as the wood pigeons, Nilgiri pipit and 15 types of dabchicks besides the bison (Indian Gaur), mouse deers, barking deers, wild dogs, leopards and tigers. The Kookal caves (also spelt Kukkal) are ancient rock shelters that show traces of the descendants of the original Palaiyar (meaning "old ones") tribes who used to wear leaf clothing. The caves are overhanging slabs of different types of metamorphic rocks called charconite and granulite. Till the mid-1980s, over 30 families resided on the hill top, where a small temple is located. The vicinity of the temple commands a spectacular 360 degree view of the mountains and plains. There is a beautiful waterfall inside the Kookal forest which provides water for the entire village throughout the year. There is another water fall near the village which can be reached by trekking a few hundred metres. The Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (CSWRI) at Mannavanur is just a few minutes drive from Kookal. The site is one of the last extensive chunks of high altitude rolling grasslands left in the Palani Hills, spread over 1,340 acres. There are vantage points from where you can get breathtaking views of the sheep farm. The centre breeds sheep and rabbits for wool and meat. The Mannavanur Ecotourism site is next to the sheep farm. Horse riding by the lake is one of the highlights of the site. A 4 km drive from Kookal will take you to a farming village nearby called Gundupatti, where you could visit vegetable farms and Floriculture farms developed inside polyhouses.

    If you are a nature lover and wanted to enjoy the real atmosphere of Kodaikanal, then we welcome you to my beautiful nature cottage near Dolphin Nose, Vattakanal. The most famous Dolphin Nose is only 500 meter walk from my home. The early morning view of the valley from the Dolphin Nose is really amazing. Most of the time the whole area is filled with mist. Stay in my nature cottage and you will never miss the morning vibe. Best choice for nature lovers, family&photographers. Be my guest Abidh
    The cottage have 2 rooms with one common bathroom. Each room have separate entrance. And outside the property we have a place for doing the campfire and also a Tent setup. The cottage is very close to a jungle and the amazing Dolphin Nose is only 500 meter from the cottage. In order to get the best view you should visit Dolphin Nose early morning. The advantage of staying here is you can manage your time and never miss the chance to enjoy the view of valley from the Dolphin Nose.
    The hill station of Kodaikanal located in the Palani hill range of Tamil Nadu presents its tourists with refreshing break from the monotony and pressure of day to day life. There are many tourist spots in Kodaikanal. One of the best examples for the same is Dolphin's Nose. Dolphin’s Nose is a flat rock located at the edge of the cliff and at a distance of 6.8 km from the town of Kodaikanal. Located at an altitude of 6,600 ft, it is protruding flat rock which resembles to the nose of a dolphin. Thus this natural formation of the rock is called as Dolphin’s Nose. One can reach Dolphin’s Nose through a one kilometre trekking from Vattakkanal hamlet. To reach the viewpoint, one has to go via an old road after crossing Pambar Bridge. Later a curve rounds the hill side take you to the spot which offers you not just with amazing view but also a soothing atmosphere. It is located about eight km from the lake, and presents you with a breath taking view of the chasm that is 6,600 metres (21,700 ft) deep. This is a flat projecting rock that is quite secluded and undisturbed and can be reached through a steep rocky trail beginning soon after Pambar Bridge.

    Can The Terrace be anywhere other than the top floor? One of the two rooms ( the other one is called The Knot) in the first floor of a 5 bedroom bungalow at a scenic spot overlooking the mountains. The accommodation consists of a private terrace (200 sq ft) and the room ( 200m sq ft including the toilet).While the room takes care of the essentials like comfortable bedding,luggage place, washroom, the highlight is the wooden floored bay window, that lets you enjoy the view right from your bed.
    What is Kodaikanal without its mountains, mist and natural beauty? The Terrace - allows you to have your best shot at this view. Located a scenic spot overlooking this panoramic beauty, The Terrace one of the 2 private rooms is on the first floor of a 5 bedroom bungalow ( the other room is called The Knot). The room consists of 2 parts a private terrace and the room itself. The 200 sq.ft which comes first is used by many as outdoor dining area. Another four steps leads you to the room( about 200 sq.ft including the washroom). While it has all the essentials like comfortable bedding, luggage area, wardrobe and hygienic toilets with running hot and cold water, the highlight is the bay window which allows you enjoy the view right from the comforts of your bed.
    We are located in the residential side of Kodaikanal. We are in the dead end of a hill road and the place is calm and quiet and has an unhurried air to it. There is a restaurant serving south Indian dishes down the road and the city centre is about 1.5 kms from our place. It is a steep claim. However, many would like to walk down to our place and it takes about 20 minutes.
  • Great view, you get what's there in the pictures. Special Thanks for Maheshwari for all the help!

  • we really enjoyed our stay at b‘s hive - maheswari and the rest of the team were lovely and welcoming and helped us with everything we needed. it was super clean, the view (sunrise) was great (i must say that we booked this room but were allowed to take the room next door called „the knot“ as it was also available), the neighborhood is friendly and the food was very good as well. thank you again!! :)

    Lisa2019-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The place has the best view, overlooking the valley. The rooms are well maintained, and the washroom, sparking clean! And the sunrise, What a sunrise! Mr. Selvan, needs a special mention here! The hospitality is at par, if not above that of a 3 star place. Definitely recommend!

    Pratik2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • At B-Hive, one can’t miss the breathtaking view — just draw the curtains and enjoy the vista right from inside the room. Breakfast at the balcony was an amazing experience. The room was clean, spacious,comfortable and we had access to hot water 24hrs a day. We had travelled by bus and I was hoping to find local transport to reach the lodge but I was surprised that a cab was waiting to pick us up. My thanks to the Manageress Maheshwari, Caretaker Selvam and Driver Ashok. Ashok took us around for site seeing on both the days and stayed with us until we got into the bus for Bangalore. The whole experience had been wonderful and again, all thanks to each and every member of the staff. I highly recommend staying at B—Hive. Cons: The room was very chilly. Warm blankets were provided but I wish there was a room heater too.

    Mohammed2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • The room was very nice even though that’s what we expected with the price. Views were amazing and host very helpful! We got amazing (and cheap) dinner and even though the location isn’t the best it was easy to get a cab and even walk to the center. We even got to stay there after the check out (8am) which was really nice :) I totally recommend if you look for a peaceful place to stay.

    Alexandra2018-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • the stay was awesome.. as mentioned in the post. Mashwari was taking care of the property n she planned the itinerary very well.. she booked the cab n also served home cooked food for breakfast n dinner.. that was great. Ashok was guide, driver, photographer.. he was very friendly. they both made my trip to Kodai a awesome trip. I surely recommend this place.

    Totally away from the Crowd ! If you like hotels, than this is not the place for you. Hotels Leave You Disconnected from the City and its Culture, My place has great views.

  • The place is in the midst of an estate ish space, which gives you the freedom to be loud if you want. It was exactly what we wanted, a quiet place to retreat out for a couple of days. Excellent views over the Western Ghats is what you'll be welcomed with. And also a starry sky at night with little light pollution. The sunroom is definitely a nice touch. Plenty of balcony space to sit out and have a drink if you please. Very well equipped bedrooms with clean and comfy linens and beds. Towels and toiletries would have been a nice touch, but it's nothing to complain about. Had hot water all day, and electricity too. Cell phones work just fine and so does the basic WiFi. The caretakers were very helpful indeed and the place was very well attended to. However, the place is a little far from Kodaikanal, about a 20 minute drive. So be prepared to arrange for meals, there's not much around. This could be your only caveat or your favourite thing about the place. Will definitely not hesitate to book again!

  • We had an amazing experience staying in this Villa, The bungalow is much beautiful than what you see in pictures. The view is just perfect. The location is 6 kms away from the main city hence it is recommended only if you looking for a peaceful and serene experience. An SUV is must to reach this property since the road is uphill and not in good condition. For food make sure to order in advance since availability is not guaranteed. First day the host could not serve us chicken for dinner which he made up by serving complimentary non-veg dinner the next day. Rest the host is very cooperative and make sure to read all the rules in advance since everything is mentioned very clearly.

    A view of a lifetime is what this charming vacation cottage offers. It is a perfect rabbit hole to get away from it all or to see the sights of Kodaikanal from far above the town. This quaint 2 bedroom hall and kitchen holiday cottage with a large patio will take your breath away.Evenings offer an amazing experience of watching the city lights from far above with the stars above you.
    Its a lovely cottage with all you need to get away from the city ( The smoke and noise of kodai town included!) but yet is a short drive away from the town itself. It has amazing views of the town and the lake and greenery all around. This home with wooden floors offers two large bedrooms, a large hall, a functional kitchen and a beautiful patio to soak up the sun or rain;-) The House is beautifully decorated with some beautiful family furniture and many of my personal belongings collected over time from all over the world, Large glass windows offer views of greenery and the patio offers breathtaking views of the valley and the lake. The house has two bedrooms with room heaters and two bathrooms. The kitchen has all basic cooking utensils. The house also has a toaster, hot water kettle, Microwave, Refrigerator and gas supply.
    The house is located in an quiet corner of an exclusive gated community which offers safety, exclusivity and peace. It is only a short drive from the lake and an even shorter drive to shops and groceries. The House is located in one of the highest points and offers wonderful 360 degree views.
  • A beautiful cottage on top of hill with view of kodai town and friendly staff. All in all, highly recommended. If you looking to stay at Kodaikanal close to town yet disconnected.

  • Raj’s place, not just this but both his houses in this community are beyond homely and perfect. He makes it a point to keep you happy and safe. During this trip I fell sick and the way raj handled our situation was so thoughtful and kind. It made us feel more at home. Couldn’t be more happier. Plus his place is so gorgeous and private, it’s worth every penny. I’ve been here about 4 times now and I know I’ll only stay here the next time I come to Kodai as well. Even the high end resorts like Tamara and such cant give you this feeling :’) THANKYOU raj for being the best host.

    Rhea2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Raj’s home is beyond perfection. I’ve stayed at his other house in the same premises which is also unbelievable. Both places are so well done and well maintained. Feels like home :’) and during this visit I fell sick and raj was so kind and so concerned. My payment wasn’t going through and that was the least of his worries as he told me to head to his place and rest before worrying about payment. Which goes to show this is not just business for him, he’s willing to be the best host you’ve ever had! It was truly amazing, I would recommend his place to EVERYONE ❤️ And I for sure will be coming back every now and then.

    Rhea2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • The place is located away from Hustle and bustle of main kodai city but still not too far away, takes approximately 15 mins . The cottage is absolutely perfect and extremely cute and cozy. It’s fully furnished and has everything one requires. Raj responds immediately to any queries and the estate manager was also very helpful . the views are brilliant in the morning. Will definitely visit again

    Abirami2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to spend a couple of days in Kodaikanal. The house is about 10-15 mins drive up from the main city, with excellent views over the valley. The sunrise is truly spectacular so make sure you get up to see it. The house is cozy, filled with souvenirs Raj has collected over the years. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

    Sudipto2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • There is a reason why Raj is a super host! Book this place with no further doubts. The pictures of the place on the app do no justice. Raj was extremely responsive and co operative throughout the trip. He even got us contacts for a local driver for sight seeing. We reached the place quite early in the morning and he was kind enough to provide us a smaller unit to refresh and rest before we could check in to the place. Very kind and humble gentleman and this made my trip although more enjoyable. You can see a lot of thoughtful touches in the place. The view from the place it self is a view point on its own. You have some candles on the side? You will find the match box at the kitchen counter. You need to have a drink? You have all kinds of glasses ( shot glasses to beer mugs ). In the mood to have coffee? Tea? You have the packets all ready. There is a toaster to toast your bread as well. Everything about this place is great! 5 star for sure! Thanks Raj!

    Pratyusha2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • What all the other reviewers say is true, you can't go wrong with this place!

    Apoorva2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • AJ has been such a wonderful host that we felt like we were staying at a friend’s place and not at some Airbnb property. He is very quick to respond and immediate to act if any help is needed. He is also a very good local guide and guided us to the most scenic and less-crowded places. The cabin that we stayed in is one with amenities that would make one’s stay comfortable. The food arrangements are awesome. Arjun’s home cooked bread omlette is truly delicious. Only one thing that can be added is a room heater for people like us who can’t stand < 20 deg temperatures. Would definitely recommend AJ’s place for anyone visiting Kodaikanal.

    Phani Chaitanya2019-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome host. Superb view. Highly recommended. AJ's place was a real gem. We booked it after reading the earlier rave reviews and the place lived up to the expectations. 1. View... For us "view from the room" is the most important factor when we go on a relaxed vacation. And u probably cant ask for better. The photo in the Airbnb is the exact view u get from the window/balcony. It's an unobstructed view of the Kodai lake, the mountains and forest. U can spend the entire vacation just sitting in that balcony. 2. Location...walking distance from Kodai lake and PT road(all eateries place). Surprising to see a place in the midst of the city, with that good a view. 3. Host...Well, AJ is a superhost not for nothing. Right from taking care of our daily needs, to suggesting all offbeat destinations, places to hang out and eat..He really took that extra effort to make our trip memorable. 4. Room... It's a wooden cottage, separate from the owner's house but within the same premises. Don't expect a five star penthouse. It's a basic homestay with the required amenities. Clean and well maintained. Cons... Can't think if any... The approach road was in bad shape due to recent rains. Although we didn't face much problem with our car. Overall, an absolutely wonderful stay. Would highly recommend this place to everyone..

    Anirban2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Would recommend to people coming to Kodai.

    Mohit2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place is a beautiful heritage bungalow with a lovely lawn and gorgeous valley views. Aj is extremely prompt and warm. We were looking for places last minute and this was a steal with the views, ambience, proximity to the lake. Definitely recommended.

    Arpita2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The villa gives you a touch near to the nature with a very nice lake view. Additionally, Arjun is a very supportive super host and will help you in every possible way. I'll stay at the same place upon revisit to Kodaikanal. 🙂

    Mayank2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful few days at Arjuns place. Private, quiet and conveniently located (about fifteen min walk to the lake), the place was exactly what I had been looking for, for a few days of quiet rest and relaxation. Arjun (who also offered very interesting conversation) and his family stay right next to this house, and were very helpful and nice. Would want to stay here again next time I come to kodai.

  • Finest property in Kodaikanal. Absolutely beautiful, Calm and perfect for a vacation. Also centrally located, so access to other areas is easy. we were a gang of 8 friends and stayed at Jacaranda villa for a night. It was the most memorable trip, Mr. Murugesh the caretaker is indeed a very caring person. He knows his duties and deliveries on every request without a second of hesitation. Hats off to the caretakers family for maintaining the villa really well. Rooms are well maintained and clean. Live BBQ with exotic vegetables and different meats stole our heart !. Huge place yet very cosy with the best Garden anyone would ask for. Syed the host is quick and crisp in responding to queries. He seems to have grasped the soul of vacations. Highly recommended !

Special mention to caretaker murugesh and family who made sure that all our requirements are met promptly....the food was exceptional with a good homely touch....there is provision for bonfire and barbeque at night.....all in all this was my best trip to kodai....thanks to syed for such a great property which is maintained well and run exceptionally...... definitely suggest this......5 stars without doubt

  • It was a nice place, peaceful and scenic. Very clean on the day we arrived. It will fufill all your basic needs :). I felt personally that breakfast can bit better specially bread, and host can subscribe bit more channels on TV including one hindi and one english.

    Jyoti2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Stumbled upon the place in a quaint corner of Kodai, tucked away from the main city. Tidy, clean and lovely, this AirBnb reflected great taste in aesthetics and was equipped with all necessities. Plush beds, nice cupboards, comforting covers and blankets, and a range of things (scrabble, a collection of classics and the good-old tv set) to keep you occupied in case you have a dull moment even in the laps of the breathtaking surroundings. For those who love their walks, you can hitchhike to the busy neighbouring sections or take the bus which comes every hour or so. Food, if it's on you, is a little of a sore area but our lovely host kept springing sweet surprises in the form of organic soups and freshly-baked breads. All in all, it was a fulfilling stay and we yearn to be back soon.

    Kookal is a beautiful and quaint 32 km drive away from Kodaikanal, the Princess of Hills. If you are able to overcome the temptation of stopping by at the charming spots that dot the route, you can cover this distance of 32 km in a little over an hour. It is a perfect destination for those on the lookout for offbeat places to stay. The 'Tent for 4' is pitched inside a fully fenced and gated 1 acre area which is part of a 5 acre property. The entire 5 acres is also fully fenced.
    The 'Tent for 4' has a Living Room and a Bedroom. The Living Room is provided with 2 Beach Chairs, 2 Stool Chairs and a Coffee Table. The Bedroom is provided with 2 double size Air Mattresses, Bed Sheets, Pillows, 10 degree Centigrade Sleeping Bags with fresh Liners, Camp Lights etc. We also have Sleeping Bags for 0 degree Centigrade for colder nights. Torch Lights and Umbrellas are available with the Caretaker. Kindly request if needed.
    Kookal has the biggest patch of the rare Shola forests in the entire upper Palani Hills located in the Western Ghats. It would be interesting to note that the Western Ghats is one of the two biodiversity hotspots in India, out of the 35 worldwide. Kookal is home to 165 species of butterflies and a number of relatively uncommon birds such as the wood pigeons, Nilgiri pipit and 15 types of dabchicks besides the bison (Indian Gaur), mouse deers, barking deers, wild dogs, leopards and tigers. The Kookal caves (also spelt Kukkal) are ancient rock shelters that show traces of the descendants of the original Palaiyar (meaning "old ones") tribes who used to wear leaf clothing. The caves are overhanging slabs of different types of metamorphic rocks called charconite and granulite. Till the mid-1980s, over 30 families resided on the hill top, where a small temple is located. The vicinity of the temple commands a spectacular 360 degree view of the mountains and plains. There is a beautiful waterfall inside the Kookal forest which provides water for the entire village throughout the year. There is another water fall near the village which can be reached by trekking a few hundred metres The Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (CSWRI) at Mannavanur is just a few minutes drive from Kookal. The site is one of the last extensive chunks of high altitude rolling grasslands left in the Palani Hills, spread over 1,340 acres. There are vantage points from where you can get breathtaking views of the sheep farm. The centre breeds sheep and rabbits for wool and meat. The Mannavanur Ecotourism site is next to the sheep farm. Horse riding by the lake is one of the highlights of the site. A 4 km drive from Kookal will take you to a farming village nearby called Gundupatti, where you could visit vegetable farms and Floriculture farms developed inside polyhouses.

  • One of a kind place, AJ was super attentive to details, very friendly and went out of the way to ensure our stay was pleasant and memorable. Very close to the lake and other attractions. Views from the house is splendid. Definitely thumbs up and would recommend this place to anyone who is seeking unique home experience as opposed to standard close walled hotel rooms.

  • Describing this place ‘great’ is an understatement. The property exceeds all expectations. The host, AJ, is chill and very helpful. Had an amazing time at this AirBnB. There are some beautiful touches in the property that can leave you in awe. Location is easily accessible and close to some key tourist spots. Hope to visit this property again.

  • The stay is amazing and definitely worth the price, the host is extremely helpful and accommodating. They have provisions for bonfires which is an added bonus. Loved the locality, not too far from the lake and other main attractions. The overall ambience provided was inviting and warm. It has a vintage vibe and is more cozy than opulent. For a group of 5, it was very reasonable.

    Vaishnavi2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Aj’s place is exactly what it promises to be ... quaint , cozy and perched at a perfect location

    Rashmi2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Place is well located and offers good view of the lake. Entire place is very clean and tidy. It is perfect for group of 5 people. They have kept few games, such as Carrom , darts and other board games. Arjun is a great host, he helped us is all aspects. He also gave us complementary breakfast (as a surprise) Thankyou Arjun for such a great experience.

    Priyesh2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Arjun is a very friendly host who does it with Passion, sure a person who stays there once will stay at maruti villa over and again, value for money. The place was clean and tidy as it is in photo's. One more advice for guests don't go for outsite travel agencies, arjun has a person called shiva (innova cab) ask for him he is the best driver we ever met, he ll make ur trip convenient, satisfying, trustworthy and absolutely value for your money and most importantly very friendly for all types of guests same as arjun. Everything was good and overall experience is 5/5.

  • A wonderful stay! In the greens of the 80-acres farm, we explored a lot of natural vegetation, medicinal herbs and tasty fruits with Priya herself, who built everything of it, out of her love for nature and her wise intent of contributing back to it. Just like the stay, the food that was offered to us was all natural. We had all our meals there and we loved every bite and sip of that. Then, the hospitality was amazing too, from on-demand herbal-tea requests, to a farm-tour, to arranging a cab, everything that we needed was there. All in all, a wonderful stay! Would love to visit again :)

  • Great stay. I would definitely recommend this place for a romantic getaway as the cabin is super cozy. View is pleasant and the place is very clean. Food is not comment worthy as it was not great and I would not recommend it. Other than that great hosting and amazing inn.

    *1BR w pvt. bathroom. *Comfortable for 3 adults max with one extra floor mattress in the room *4 Kms away from the crowded town centre, overlooking a misty valley, far from the madding crowds *Experience 'real silence' means! * For people that need a break from their regular/stressful routine *Perfect for nature enthusiasts *Perfect for Honeymoon couples ( Special packages available) *Couples looking to kindle their relationships with their special someone *Cosmopolitan host welcomes all
    Elaborating on the Cosmopolitan host a bit here as there is space constraint in the Listing description box. We think that life is beautiful and too short to be stuck in a mindset with labels, genders, orientations etc. Hence we welcome all guests from any caste, color, orientation and marital statuses. Come and celebrate life in our love filled villa. Kodai has been a popular hill destination for decades because of its lovely flora, fauna, weather etc. Though the over exploitation has taken a toll and the heart of the town is sometimes a bit crowded and noisy. Our property is tucked about 4 kms away in a nice nook, far from the madding crowd, pun intended. This gives you the liberty of enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee/ cocoa & watch the mist unfolding from the balcony...say hello to a low flying cloud, if any, but more importantly, breathe some fresh air. If you are looking to connect with your special someone over a quiet meal with glass of wine, beer or something stronger, in a serene environment this would be a nice place. We offer you a hot breakfast per our fixed menu, complimentary with the room. We have an in-house cook trained by an award winning Chef, the hostess Girija, herself. We have a fixed menu for Lunch and Dinner if so required by guests. Special requests can also be entertained if received well in advance. Please note that L/D are chargeable. Kodai being a hilly locale has constraints when in comes to growing its own produce. Hence almost everything has to be transported from nearby towns. Historically, Tamil Nadu has been backwards when it came to concepts like rain water harvesting etc. causing a strain in the levels of underground water levels and water tables. The present Govt. is taking some steps towards improving this and hopefully in the coming years things will be better. So we would earnestly request you to help curtail unnecessary water usage.
    Kodaikanal is a city near Palani in the hills of the Dindigul district in Tamilnadu. Its name in the Tamil language means "The Gift of the Forest". Kodaikanal is also known as the 'Princess of Hill stations' with a long history as a retreat & a popular tourist destination. Season months Peak season: April–June Low season: Feb-March; July–September Second season : October–January
  • Awesome place with great view

    Satheesh2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • First thing that struck us with this place was the view from balcony which is breathtaking and is worth every penny that you spend for this place. Girija is one of the best hosts I’ve ever come across through AirBnB... She was very quick to respond to all the questions we had and took really good care of all our needs... She made sure that we were comfortable throughout our stay by constantly checking in with us... Complementary South Indian breakfast was very fresh and tasted really good... Overall we enjoyed the stay and the serene views that this place offers... Special mention to Karthik and Basu who help Girija run this place and take care of the guests... They took care of all the requests we had during our stay...

    Gowtham2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Rohit2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The place is full value for money. The view from balcony into the clouds and mountains is mesmerizing and at night it gets better with clear sky. Place is well maintained and the staffs are very friendly. Basu and Karthik was very welcoming and they arranged for camp fire as well though rain in between made it hard to sit through. Fyi the coffee here is awesome. Also for traveling Charles took good care of us for visiting local and outside places. Pls contact the owner to get all details and info before traveling and trust me u won't regret it.

    Jeet2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely, recommend the place with breathtaking views and an extremely considerate host Mr. Raja.

All credits goes to him as we connected so much and we had lengthy conversations and enjoyed our stay to the max.. The view from the room is mindblowing..

I will visit there every year and make sure to connect more with the hosts,, Its nice to meet people and talk about life and hear their experiences over a cup of coffee and a beautiful view.. Everything about this place is blissful and I suggest you all go there! It was home away from home for us and the care we got from the host while we were out exploring and the call he made to make sure we were doing ok was so loving!! I love you guys (Raja and girija).. Thank you once again for this weekend getaway!

  • For anyone who is expecting to stay in a homely atmosphere with clean rooms, clean air, a scenic beautiful view from the balcony of the room and have a relaxed vacation, this is the place in Kodaikanal to stay. Its budget friendly and as clean as a 4 star Hotel room. The helper is amazing cook. Don't forget to ask him to make crispy onion pakodas and dal fry. The owner Raja uncle is very friendly and good to talk to. He takes personal care of all the comfort needed during the stay. You will have an amazing stay at this place and value for money.

    Amit2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying at Symantac Villa. The rooms are so well planned to give you a splendid panoramic view of the valleys. The balcony opens up into the valley view! Mr. Raj was a superb host and was personally thr to make our stay comfortable. Basu is the all rounder caretaker of this place who is also a superb chef! Overall, the place is worth the spend, location, valley view, great food and great host support! We had complete freedom and zero interference to play music and just have a merry time! Highly recommended stay!!

  • A very great location, beautiful and right on the mountain. Also open inside with a cool architectural style to it. I would definitely stay again. Only issue was that the lower common room/dining area is right next to these rooms, so if people are even speaking there at all and the lights are on, you may have to yell at them.
