Ten-Second Takeaway

Take in scenic Kodaikanal from Le Poshe, a resort that offers comfortable villas, plenty of activities and a chance to take a break from hectic city life.

Bolt Of Blue

Want to avoid being washed away by the heat wave? Then, escaping to the hills might be a good idea. Thankfully, hilly retreats like Kodaikanal are just a short drive away and if you drop by the Le Poshe, you can make a memorable trip out of it. Like the rest of Kodaikanal, Le Poshe too is easy on the eyes. As you make your way through the gates, you’ll be greeted by cobbled pathways, that are lined on either side with pristine white villas topped by blue roofs. At regular intervals, you’ll also chance upon patches of colourful blooms, spots of greenery, and outdoor spaces where you can lounge under sun umbrellas.

Rooms, at Le Poshe, range from the standard to the deluxe {the difference lies in the size}. All of them sport a modern look with soft lights, wooden accents, and an understated elegance. You won’t be living a monk’s life here, for sure! The rest of the property too has plenty to hold your interest. There’s a spa that promises to banish your weariness, a dedicated play area for the kids {fitted with arcade games et al}, and a well-equipped gym that ensures that you don’t fall off the fitness wagon on your holiday.

You can balance your workout with an indulgence feast at the restaurant where you can gorge on their buffets that includes food from all corners of the globe. We also suggest that you stop by their quiet lounge space in the evening for a drink or two.

Gift Of The Forest

Often hailed as the Princess of Hill Stations, Kodaikanal’s {the name translates to ‘Gift of the Forest’} verdant setting makes it an ideal holiday destination. From the Le Poshe, that’s a short ride from all the touristy activities, you can explore the many sights. You can row across the waters of the shimmering Kodaikanal Lake, that’s at the centre of town, or you can take a cycle ride around it. You can also explore the hill station’s many parks and viewpoints from where you can gape at the mist-covered green hills.
