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.
Check-in: 12 Noon.
Check-out: 10 a.m.
As you leave behind the hot Tamil Nadu plains and approach the cool, pine-scented air of Kodaikanal, 2,133 metres up in the Palani hills, you’ll feel the same way as a bunch of early British and American missionaries. In the early 19th century, these foreigners who stumbled into Kodaikanal were so touched by its beauty and grateful for the escape from the heat that they set about building a town here. They built homes and churches, cut paths, paved roads, introduced new trees such as eucalyptus and pear, and, around 1863, built the Kodaikanal Lake, a defining motif of the town’s natural splendour today.
