This is a Small and cosy place with a good deal of activities on offer. We (myself, spouse and 5 year old son) had been there during the peak season and came back refreshed and rejuvenated. The place is pretty close to the Kodaikanal bus stand and can actually be reached by walk, provided you aren't carrying heavy baggage.
We skipped the usual sights around Kodaikanal and decided to explore the activity options. While there are games and cam-fire activities organised in the resort itself, the adventure activities like sunset ride and down-hill cycling interested us. My son had a lot of play options within the resort as well.
We were taken on a down-hill cycling trip by the resort activities department co-ordinator. This trip was a great experience. We bundled a few cycles into the back of a jeep and traveled by to a spot without much human activity around. From this point, we hopped on to the bicycles and just started zipping down-hill. The route was practically deserted, but motorable. I have never went that fast in a cycle before and that too without pedaling. In fact we were using the brakes pretty often to feel safe. Since my son was too young to ride a bike, he followed us in the jeep. After about 5 to 6 Km of riding, we stopped at the edge of a shola forest and spent some time there. Then we made our way back in the jeep.
The food at the resort was very good. The service was excellent as well. The rooms have a full home-thatre setup and the room where we stayed had a wooden ladder and an additional kid's bed in an elevated structure (attic).
We had a couple of problems during our stay. The first one was regarding the water heater, which did not have a proper thermal-cutoff. So the heater had a thermal blow-off and the bathroom false ceiling started leaking hot water from everywhere. Luckily no one was in the bathroom at that time. The problem was rectified the next morning and were provided several buckets of hot water till then.
The second problem happened on the day we were supposed to check-out. The resort ran out of water and all taps went dry. There was no water to even flush the toilet. Since the resort was fully occupied at that time, it did turn out to be a major problem. The staff did their best to resolve the issues by fetching buckets of water from somewhere. But it lasted close to 2 hours.
All the resort staff were very helpful and courteous. But for the problems mentioned above, this trip would have been perfect.
