Perched atop a quaint hill, The Mudhouse is surrounded by the spectacular landscapes of Sahayadri, offering an epic panorama of the valley of Marayoor. Close to the treasured Sandalwood forest and Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. Here, time moves unhurriedly, slowly painting the sky a different hue each passing hour. The eco-friendly constructed cottages and treehouse reflect barefoot luxury, helping you stay rooted to Earth but still be close to Heaven.

We were fortunate enough to stay in the Treehouse for one night in November 2023 and it was better than we had imagined. The whole location of the accommodation is beautiful, but the treehouse itself was really incredible. Staff were very friendly and made our stay very special and memorable, we had such a lovely time staying here and hope we can come back one day.

We stayed in a Mudhouse for two nights and the Treehouse for one night - both of which were wonderful. The Treehouse is such a unique and magical experience and somewhere we will remember for a long time. The food was truly the best we had throughout all our travels through Kerala. The staff were all incredibly kind and helpful, in particular Ambily, who has the most amazing spirit and is a true asset to be treasured by the owners! (We were particularly touched by her kindness shown towards animals). This really is a remote location and the drive there isn't for the faint hearted, but once you're there you can totally switch off from the world and enjoy the wonders of nature. If you hope to experience the private dinner 'under the stars', book this in advance as we didn't, and it had already been booked by other guests so we didn't get chance.

WOW, what a find. This is definitely in God's own backyard. We were not sure what to expect when staying in a treehouse but we were happy to embrace the experience. Well, I can assure you the Mudhouse surpassed all of our expectations. So words about the accommodation would be - impeccably designed, all amenities thought of, in tune with its surroundings, surprising luxury and comfort, great food, and super friendly management and staff. This gem is set in one of the most beautiful parts of Marayoor so the views are breathtaking and the experience is unforgettable. I really and truly recommend you visit this Hotel (wrong word... mmh... visiting this experience), in fact, make this the reason you visit Marayoor, I promise you won't regret it. We stayed in the Treehouse and it was such a treat and experience. The company supports the surrounding community and endeavours to be as completely self-sufficient and sustainable as possible. 10 out of 10 Deepack and Team - Huge Thanks you from Ted and Myself.

Trip advisor shows 6K per night, when I called the property, they say that this is a scam property, and nothing that they could do to remove it. The actual price they say is 12k and they say they can't accommodate you when you book through trip advisor or booking.com

The best part about this property is location, with mountain views all around, excellent landscaping, fresh breadth of air and birds chirping rite through the day. Absolute Bliss and Peace. Chef Praveen is another star here, dishing out delicious meals, though it was with limited veggies and same dishes being repeated during our 5Nites stay. Besides location and Chef Praveen and his Kitchen staff there is nothing to cheer about. Pain points starts from here. With Only Jio and BSNL network working, we have to depend on their local wireless network, which was very weak since only two-access point were installed to cover 4 Mud Houses and 1 tree house which was at quite a distance. While the views from Tree House are awesome but it’s not safe to climb the steps specially the final entry step to Tree House, its Washroom is located one level down which makes it unusable incase one wants to use during middle of the night. While we were there lot of construction work was going on, which was bit annoying. Neighbourhood Non Stop Dog Barking from was very frustrating. Be absolutely sure about your return journey schedule because they never offer you late check out despite next guest late check IN or even if they have vacant cottages. We saw 2 senior citizens sitting out in the sun for almost 3 hours though their next guest check in was late and one young couple have to face the same fate despite their cottage being going vacant for the day. They operate with very limited staff, same workers doing the House Keeping, common ground cleaning and serving you food also that makes it quite unhygienic. What made us very unpleasant is with no advance information; at check out we were handed out the bills for consuming Bed Tea and evening Tea, which I think is quite fair and basic to be part of the stay. We were told that owners are doing this as a passion not as a business. I am afraid their actions reflect otherwise. With no owners around, our experience was communicated to one of staff member Ms. Shenza with a promise to get a call from the Owners, with no revert from them, I called Mr. Ajith Narayanan but he was too busy to talk and never bothered to return a call. Generally for the good of management and staff we convey our experience directly with the owners instead of posting it on a social sites but being forced to do this due to top Management indifferent attitude.

A breathtaking experience! The mudhouses are unique, comfortable and tastefully done. The view is spectacular, food's divine and service deserves special mention. Ambiliy and team manage the place masterfully. Despite the greenery, the place is spotless clean. They even took us inside the kitchen. Hats off to the architect for seamlessly blending in ethnic and contemporary designs. We need such places... Full power to team Mudhouse! Pro tips: - There's a small trek within the property that shouldn't be missed. - Spend some time in the sitting area near the bonfire, there are fireflies that light up the sky. - There's no swimming pool, keep that in mind while booking. - Carry your own toiletries (shampoo, moisturizer etc.), they provide soaps & towels. Stunning property, extremely well maintained, the best place for some TLC... Go for it!

The cottages at the mudhouse has the authentic experience. It's truly was magically in monsoon. The experience was wonderful not only for it's ambience but because of their hospitality. Most welcoming generous smiles by Ambily and team. Must try their lunches! Our stay at the mudhouse was one of the best experience of the week long road trip. We had some trouble in our travel and the people of the mudhouse and Marayoor helped us in the best possible way they could. Forever grateful.
