Kodaikanal

Princess of Hill Stations

A cool and relaxing hill station, Kodaikanal has long attracted visitors up to its privileged position in the Western Ghats. An artificial lake graces the center of the city, marking the starting point for many Kodaikanal holidays. Magnolias, mahoganies, and rhododendrons cover the surrounding hills, and waterfalls interrupt the rugged cliff faces in gentle cascades to pools below. Particularly popular with honeymooners--and those a little worn out from their adventures across the region--Kodaikanal provides a restful place of natural wonders great and small. Find what you're looking for from your Kodaikanal holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy India travel itinerary planner .

Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.
