Kodai - By The Lake

Kodaikanal, with its natural splendour and beauty, is a quaint hill station reminiscent of the English countryside. Blending in with this serene, picture book environment is our newly renovated resort, Kodai-By The Lake!

Kodai-By The Lake (the erstwhile Lake View) holds a special place in the history of Sterling as this was the first resort to welcome our Vacation Ownership customers in 1987. The resort is situated on the banks of the picturesque Kodai Lake and styled on the lines of English countryside to compliment the English styled villages that dot Kodaikanal. The room interiors reflect the same feel with the decor planned to exude an understated but warm elegance.

A classic example of a subtle yet impressive approach to designing living spaces, Kodai-By The Lake invites you to a taste of English countryside.
