A comfortable stay in this resort. Food costs are on the higher side. All other facilities and amenities are equivalent to a 3 star hotel. The hotel is strategically placed near the lake with a good view

They differentiate everything with non club members, food, activities, room cost just everything. So if you are a member then only you should go otherwise there are lot of other choices. They charge you everything.

The resort is very well located for travelers preferring peaceful vacation. Its around 700mts from the lake.. View of the lake is treat to the eyes (not from the rooms though).However, it is highly understaffed in peak season. Overall a good experience. Would love to visit Kodai again..

The resort is very well maintained with well equipped facilities and amenities .The hospitality of the staff is great, especially Mr. Kanchan Kumar. He made sure we had a comfortable stay as we had an infant with us. Also, the food( buffet) is well organized and tasty. Our holiday will always be reminisced.

It was a great time spending 3days @kodai with my family. Thanks to team sterling made comfort stay. Spa @ sterling was a good experience. Velayutham did a complete body massage @ sterling spa made my day complete. The only issue with bathroom not OK was stinking and saw insects. informed housekeeping but continued smell.
