Mount Pleasant

Hotel in Kodaikanal (Kodai)

Despite being out on the fringes of Kodai's spaghetti-like street map, 2km west of the centre, Mount Pleasant is worth finding for its quiet setting, tasty dinners, homey rooms and the welcoming Keralan owner's quirky taste (colourful wall weavings, coconut-wood beds, coir matting). Book ahead.
