We were a little tired searching for the location. I even started wondering whether I made the right decision of choosing Mayapott - a "hideout"! And then when we saw it, it was out of this world. Amidst some 100+ acres of Cardamom and Pepper plantations, there stands a 5 room bungalow built on a rock. A narrow stream flowing... More

We felt that we had this inspiring palace to ourselves. My room at the hideaway was built around gigantic boulders imbedded into the surrounding rainforest. The intimate, boutique hotel feels more like a luxurious castle with its hand-hewn stone bridges and moats. Constructed as part of the high point of rocks called “Mystic Point” or “Mayapott” in the native language.... More

We just came back from a lovely trip to Kerala/India. Mayapott has been our best stay. The rooms are lovely and spacious, the service really good and the food was just excellent.
