About Jai

Jai boasts a handy location, being just over ten minutes' walk from both Kodaikanal Lake and the town centre. On-site dining and a pleasant garden area are just a few of features offered at this relaxed hotel.

Neat guest rooms with timber floors and wood-beamed ceilings exude a semi-rustic vibe. Flat-screen televisions and DVD players come as standard, as do safes, bottled water, and tea/coffee-making facilities. Upgraded quarters add sofas. Carpeted suites with seating areas are also available. Dormitory accommodation is offered too.

Guests can access complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the building and play games like ping pong and chess in the game room. Additional amenities include laundry services, conference facilities, and a 24-hour reception. Parking is free.

A free breakfast is served in the casual restaurant and room service is available on request. Campfires and music are regular features in the evenings.

Jai is about half-a-mile from scenic Bear Shola Falls, and a mile-and-a-half from Kurinji Andavar Hindu Temple.

Positive Reviews

Great location for sightseeing on foot

Many travellers say very good things about this property's location in their reviews. Guests like the fact that it's far enough away from the very centre of town to be quiet, yet close enough to be within walking distance of key sights like Bear Shola Falls, Kodai Lake, Bryant Park, and Coakers Walk.

Top-notch service

Visitors tend to leave very positive feedback about the hotel staff in their reviews. Guests say that as well as being extremely courteous, the personnel here are very proactive, frequently volunteering their services before waiting to be asked. Travellers also note that both managers and staff provide excellent recommendations.

Fab food

Guests are big fans of the meals served in the hotel's restaurant. Indeed, many reviewers are so enamoured by the breakfasts, and by the North/South Indian dishes offered at meal times, that they often choose to dine at the hotel rather than go out to eat.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi is a little patchy

It is noted that the free Wi-Fi provided here is somewhat limited in its effectiveness. Some visitors say they have to sit in the foyer to get online as the signal in their room is too weak.

No views

Some guests are a little disappointed to discover that, even though Kodaikānāl is a hill station town famed for its views, there are no sweeping vistas to be admired from this property's rooms. Some reviewers lament the lack of a balcony too.
