The Kodai Club in the heart of the hill station of Kodaikanal (about 7000 feet above sea level), in the South Indian State of Tamil Nadu has been in operation for over 100 years. Originally set up by the British during the days of the Raj, today it is run and managed by a Committee of elected members.
You have to know a member to be able to rent one of the conveniently appointed rooms. He or she will have to recommend your application for Temporary Membership. The rooms are clean and neat with attached bathrooms. The Club is centrally located and the Lake is just a short walk away. The cost of renting a room at the Club is good value for money. Breakfast is included. You can order lunch and dinner at additional cost, from a set menu available in the dining room.
Internet in Kodaikanal can be a challenge. The club has wifi only in the Library. Quite often the connection is unavailable.
Electricity currently can be a problem in Kodaikanal. There are regular hours both in the morning and the afternoon when Power to the Town is switched off. Everyone switches to generators as an alternative source of energy. You will not have hot water during those hours!
