Kodaikanal's First and Best Resort

Lilly's Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of woody land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 26 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen. Built in 1982, Lilly's Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students and corporate groups.

We are located in a quiet suburban neighbourhood exactly 2 km from the centre of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you'll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions. Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We will even arrange a cosy night bonfire.

We have special rates for long-term stay of a week or more. Up to 50% discount. General Discounts are also available for weekdays. Many reiterate customers from India and abroad, have been imminent here for decades as drawn back by the beauty and peacefulness of our cosy cottages. An Italian infant born in one of our cottages had returned back 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage which is her birthplace!

Lilly's Valley Reviews

A true gem out of the beaten path!

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Kodaikanal. An amazing resort on the hill overlooking the valley. The rooms are in the

middle of beautiful gardens that are very well maintained. There is a small pond and a dining area in a beautiful pagoda outdoors under the trees. The rooms are clean and simple. There's wifi in the reception area.... more

About the Founder

Lilly's Valley Resort, the very first resort to be built in Kodaikanal, was begun in 1982 by Mr. Raj A. Sukumar. He visit Kodaikanal and felt the place resembled places in England he had seen! Falling in love with the area, he purchased three beautiful acres. He ringed them with eucalyptus trees rather than a concrete wall, and started building the hotel. Later he married an American, Nina, and they have two beautiful children. The family divides its time between New York and Kodaikanal.
