Surya Holidays Kodaikanal
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Great view.great rooms. Good service and good home food. The property has probably the best view in kodaikanal. Cottages are spacious and well maintained. I was with my one and half year kid and the chef customised food to our requirement. Never thought would enjoy a bon fire in middle of may. The wind was cold and pleasant all through.
Special thanks to sorab, sanish, and John for excellent arrangement and taking care of the smallest details.

Strongly recommended.

We were absolutely convinced with the Cottage its facilities, friendlier staff and completely enjoyable atmosphere. The whole place was delight to stay at. By far this has been the best stay for me in Kodai ever.

The view of the lake from the cottage balcony is so beautiful. It’s definitely a home far away from home and with very neat and clean ambience. With all my heart I would recommend this for a bunch of friends/family if you are looking to a completely private stay if this is the place to be.
Not to forget the friendlier staff who were really very nice and warm.
Great job guys! Don’t let the charm go off!

Room Tip: Try and sort the water heaters to get a non stop supply of Hotwater. Install a higher capacity Maybe...

I was visiting kodai kanal for the first time with my wife and wanted some privacy alongwith a scenic view but not far off from the main tourist attractions..Had tried other places but they were full due to the holiday season..however managed to get a cottage at Surya holidays due to some last minute cancellations. The cottage is awesome no matter which ones you take and they have a super view of the valley and kodai lake.The room size is big and if you are traveling with friends it would be a good place for all to hangout. Agreed that there is no room service per se but because the kitchen is just 25 mtrs away it does not hurt at all. You can pretty much get what you need from the kitchen guys. They would also arrange for cab services which is almost at par with the going rates. Nightime they have a bonfire which you have to nurture for it to keep going! Was good fun! Beds are comfortable, bathrooms are large and have hot water throughout. You will not be able to walk your way to the main market from here but that does not matter. You will be out the entire day as it is and the evening you could spend in the market, have dinner and take a cab back. Overall, i will be booking this the next time i visit kodai!

Room Tip: All cottages have an awesome view. Royal suite is what we have opted for. The major difference in...

Recently I went with my family to spend 3 days vacation, We had booked King and queen cottages It was an awesome experience with very good scenic location and calm surroundings away from city. The service of staff was nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The south Indian food prepared was very tasty..The pick up from Coimbatore airport, site seeing for three days every thing was well managed. I certainly recommend the place for spending a nice and peaceful vacation in good and scenic surroundings.

So far the best place i've stayed in kodai. if you are planning for a complete private affair then lets not have a 2nd thought and go for Surya cottage.
The staffs were very friendly and the owner Mr.Sorab is a helpful in all aspects.
There are totally 6 cottages and we booked 5 for our friends & family gathering.
Had a great time and will cherish each and every moment.
