Reviewed 18 March 2013

We had been here with our family and relatives of 8 persons.They did not offer us to have the buffet as they had prepared very little food for their inhouse guest.So they served al a carte which was not upto the standards.Childrens play area was not well maintained.Food was ok ..

Room Tip: Sit on the lawn for diner and view the spectacular view of the plains.

Always felt like a home stay whenever we stayed here, primarily due to the size of the resort and not to miss the very warm and helpful staff.
Been to Kodai 100 times, but staying here gives it a special touch. Amazing valley view from the rooms (that is if you get the club/studio rooms). Our son's first trip outside home started here when he was 3 months.. Hotel unit rooms are part of the main building does not have much of view.
Food for Kodai standards is pretty good, all the chefs we have met give the custom touch to the menu by checking your preference during check-in.
Not much of activity inside the resort except for special occasion like christmas, new year. The wooden studios give that little worn out look. The stone block rooms are excellent especially the one with a big balcony opposite to the reception.

Room Tip: try getting the studio rooms and especially the one opposite to the reception.

This was a dream come true for me, as I took my entire family to this hotel. We booked three rooms and two rooms were very spacious and one room was average. I was with my parents and brother's family. We enjoyed the barbeque and break fast there. Breakfast was excellent, though a tad expensive.
play area for kids was the other major attraction for the kids.
The resort is close to the famous coakers walk, so I would say the location is great, (thought it would have been great to have more sign boards so that you can find the hotel easily). the view from hotel is similar to what you get from coaker's walk.
Service could have been better, as I find delays in getting things or I had to remind them couple of times to get what I want.

Room Tip: Choose spacious rooms, they seems to have 2 types of rooms.

We stayed in Zest Kodai in the 1st week of January 2013. The property & the rooms are very classy, and the accommodation is of very high standard. The property has superb valley views with most rooms are valley facing. Room No 1101 [Club Suite] is the best room in my view, followed by the log huts. The breakfast spread & quality is very good.

In my view, Zest should feature in the top 3 in Kodai

Room Tip: Room no 1101 has the best views

I stayed at coaker's villa on 17,18th of nov. 2012. I reached early, so I had to wait a lot of time for any room to get emptied, but that's not their fault. The room was fairly large in size and was very comforting as well. You won't get a similiar room for less than 2.5k, as per my exp. I just wish that food was more affordable, as I had no food vouchers with me. I had to walk to market for all my meals, which was cumbersome, as it is on the walking distance, but the way is very uphill. Overall, the ambience of the resort is too good, as it has been maintained very well. I would suggest you to visit this place.

Room Tip: I was given 1102, but you can choose a independent cottage, if available.

The property is located with a beautiful valley view. It seems like a guest house converted into a resort. The rooms are neat and clean with a beautiful view. Hot water for bath takes a lot of time and it soon runs cold. The property is very small and hence the recreation facilities are very limited. Food options are also very limited due to the same reason. The food is also very expensive if you consider the size of the portion. The staff is excellent but you are unlikely to enjoy much at the resort due to the above reasons.

Room Tip: There are 2 log rooms in the property. The view from there is absolutely amazing.
