B&B | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
ATMAN, located a few minutes drive from the Kodai lake, is an ideal choice for visitors who are looking for a home away from home when in Kodaikanal. Nestled in the lush greens of this beautiful hill town ATMAN our home, aptly named offers a refreshing break from the harsh and rushed city life. On offer are 4 commodious bedrooms with attached luxurious bathrooms and home cooked authentic Indian cuisine from the host's kitchen. Our home is located on the banks of a natural, perennially running stream. We are flanked on all sides by endless greenery dotted with a few small cottages, yet not immediately close to our home. All through the day one can hear the endless chirping of the birds, and an occasional sighting of a bison or wild boar from our home is possible. Though set in a quiet neighbourhood, there are small eateries serving up hot coffee/tea and snacks, in a tiny shopping area where other vendors have some souvenirs, local produce etc for sale. We love meeting and hosting people from around the world and from India, and can also provide help on local sightseeing, trekking, hiking, bird watching, nature trails etc. In short during your stay at ATMAN, you can enjoy the comforts of a luxurious home, with fresh homely meals and relax in the midst of sylvan surroundings with great weather all the year round.

"STAY HERE TO RELAX"
We travelled as a family with my parents and brother's family and my 2 small kids..the owners Lakshmi and Dinesh both were helpful. the place is very much easy to find, also somewhat near to lake… More
Thanks for writing in! Happy to note you enjoyed the amenities, and yes, hot water for small needs is a herculean task in the cold, though thankfully it was summer when you came. Variety in food is a shortcoming of a homestay, and hopefully healthy,freshly cooked food makes up for it. I remember your remark that you should ideally be back when both your kids are grown up! Look forward!

"It was an enjoyable winter break"
Located in scenic surroundings, and tastefully done rooms with all modern amenities and tasty home cooked food. The indoor fireplace was the most memorable experience for my sons, because of the cold in December!
Thank you for choosing ATMAN. Happy it met your expectations and your family enjoyed.
