stayed for 3 nights at 5 star prices with family. First of all the resort doesn't have a lake view like shown in many pictures. I opted for a premium room and still it was too small for a family of 2 kids. At checkin even our luggages were not taken from the car until we paid the full money...

However, we had opted...

We spent 3 days in the last week of December and it was a great experience. Right from check in to check out. Nagaraj and Sumit did go out of their way to make this trip memorable. The rooms were also quite comfortable for a family of 4. A place definitely worth revisiting.

Decent hotel. Very friendly staff from lobby to room maid. Value for money and location. Excellent breakfast. May be the only complain is that toilet drainage was stinking. They took immediate action when notified but it did not help. Lawn was very well maintained.

Its one of the best hotels in Kodai. Located by the lake side, makes it just perfect place for any Kodai tourist. Since its Sterling property, amenities are a plenty. You take the bikes and may go around the lake, just perfect gateway. Pretty good place to stay.
