“Our rejuvenating trip to Kodai”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

We recently made a trip to Kodaikanal for a family holiday and stayed at Serenita ! We had a lovely time with the host Ravi ( Mr Ravindran) and his wife Preeti. They are just a wonderful host and a very charming couple! We never felt that we are staying not in our house but somewhere else. Preeti is a gifted cook and made all delicious dishes for us. My wife sudeshna also joined hands and helped her to cook Bengali style Khichri for all of us. Our long chat sessions sitting on Ravi's big balcony with a mesmerizing view of the hills and the valley extending to miles was just awesome! The cottage itself was well equipped with pretty much everything with a kitchenette and we cooked some dishes for ourselves at our wish. We had a very relaxing holiday indeed! We must thank Ravi and Preeti profusely for their hospitality and friendly attitude. We promised them to comeback soon which we will certainly do.

Thanks so much folks for being so thoughtful! It was indeed such a pleasure to meet and spend quality time with you. As I have said before, makes it totally worth everything we do.
Going back to their crazily busy lives once they leave Serenità, folks have stopped posting their reviews more or less and we are compelled to survive trusting that we have given it our all!!!
Much appreciated folks and hope to see you again...Take care!!!

“An excellent place for a real getaway”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Serenita is an excellent place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful time with your family or friends. Just like an outhouse with all required amenities and yet with maximum privacy. Clean room and toilets.

Amazing view brings chill to your mind and most of all, Ravindran and his family was exceptionally supportive and gives us a feel of family. Last but not the least, good food.

We had an very comfortable and peaceful stay at Serenita. The quiet location and the pretty view were exactly what we were looking for in Kodi. Must mention that we especially enjoyed the superb food provided by our hosts. We will most certainly be going here very soon.

- Outstanding property, excellently maintained, good facilities, great view, self contained & private. Great if you wish to spend the major part of your holiday lazing around (like we did).
- Wonderful hosts, great to talk to, went out of their way to make us comfortable, great food.
- A little far from town (should you wish to go there), and walking can be difficult for the not-so-fit as there are steep inclines. Transport can be expensive if you don't take your car - we did not.
- Internet connection is very iffy

“Serinita...Home...Rejuvenate...Bliss.....”
Reviewed 11 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Came across Serinita on Tripadvisor and read all the reviews on web before we zeroed on it as we were travelling with our 16 month old daughter. Once we reached Serinita we were welcomed by clouds. No words can describe the scenic beauty of the place. Ravi and Preeti made us feel at home. Serinita offers hospitality and coziness of your Home, breath taking views that Rejuvenate you and take you to the state of Bliss!

Definitely, the best stay in Kodai!

Thanks folks for posting your feedback!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused to you due to the apparent room size. Its a fairly large room though we have intentionally tried to provide every possible convenience in the space available including books/toys for children, a table for two, clotheshorse and the fully equipped kitchenette as you would have realised. The set up also caters to guests who take it on a self catering basis and hence certain conveniences incorporated for the same.

Nevertheless, we hope to see you again some time soon! We'll be more than happy to clear out some of the movable furniture for you.
