“Mesmerising Mayapott.....................”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Mayapott is an excellent place for people who love to have some quality time in a peaceful and serene environment.The place is beautiful, well maintained and the staff are excellent in working out every detail to ensure that our stay is a pleasant one. The place is so heavenly, almost feel one with nature. There is a inhouse chef to prepare the food of our choice and the food was very tasty. A very good place with superb hospitality.

Room Tip: Villa suite is a good option if you are a group of three or four friends.

Had a wonderful stay at Mayapott. This place was simply amazing. Everything including food, ambience, room and the massage was superb. Chef Binesh and John were very friendly and added a personal touch to our stay. Thanks a lot, guys! Will refer our friends to stay only here.

We stayed for 2 nights and the stay was very comfortable. Totally a new experience and the villa is beautifully constructed on the rock and the protruded rocks inside the rooms are giving you a different feeling. Morning walk through the plantation is good. Staff are very friendly and food is tasty and good. Congrats to Johnson, Vinish, John, Paul.... Looking to go again during season..

This is a small, elegant boutique hotel set in a cardamon plantation. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The food was exceptional and beautifully served. The room was clean and comfortable. We were given a guided tour of the plantation and tought about cardamon and pepper production.

There is nothing more pleasing than sitting in the midst of tea plantation, in a villa that is so one with nature, a cold breeze of the Western Ghats soothing you, the serene sound of the rivulets that flows by the window and having a hot cup of tea giving you the true taste of “KERALA”. Couple that up with a devoted staff and brilliant food and spa that is when you get a perfect recipe to happiness. Being here you just want to be no where else but here. I hope we get an opportunity to visit the beautiful place again.
That was our “MAYAPOTT Experience” truly mesmerizing. The best two days in our two week stay at god’s own country.

Hi Prashant,

Team Mayapott would like to thank you for the appreciation about your Tryst with nature at Mayapott. Your beautiful words have made some meaningful impact on our motivation to preserve this unique place for the appreciation of many Indian and global travelers, We were privileged to have you with us at Mayapott. For the rest of the TripAdvisor readers may I make a correction in the review that Mayapott is surrounded by evergreen cardamom plantation not tea gardens. Your photos posted along with the review are beautiful indeed. Thank you very much!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
… a stream, which meanders through the property, appears at one point and mysteriously vanishes at another point. No wonder the place is called “Mayapott” meaning ‘ the mystical point’ in Tamil language. Mayapott Plantation villa is a boutique home stay, built on a rock in the natural ambiance of 130 acres of cardamom estate; the greenery, birds & breeze, natural stream and excellent amenities invite travelers who seek peace and privacy along with rich activities such as trekking, plantation walks, honey bee farming, hiking, biking, bird watching, peaceful reading of their favorite book by the brook, learning and participating in the ethnic cooking. Apart from these activities one can enjoy the outdoor activities promoted and organized by the Kerala tourism such as, river rafting & trekking, boating, jungle safari.Mayapott is built around a huge rock, which was used as a resting point for hunters. Legend has it that the bonfire around which they rested was a safe refuge from the herd of wild elephants that raged the area. The rainforest canopy, the floor of which houses the cardamom plantation, provides the serene setting for Mayapott. A stream flows under the bridge that connects the two portions of the house, which is quite a delightful sight during the rains. The area also houses the huge pond that has been used as a storage tank for irrigating the plantation.A short while from Thekkady, the seat of the Periyar wildlife, yet far from anything that can disturb you….. So cut off that even a newspaper rarely reaches it; this home frees you to rejuvenate yourself in the deepest possible ways. This unique plantation hide-out features two fully furnished studio rooms(bed rooms) and one villa suite, a two bed spa, common dining area and fire place, a tea launch over the covered bridge ; and 130 acres of lush green cardamom plantation where privacy will be the password for nature lovers to relax, rejuvenate and refresh. And for honeymoon couples to get lost in their world of dreams, romance and playful mischief. Attached bath rooms have a natural ambience too. All the rooms have view of the plantation and the stream, complimented with music of the birds, aroma of cardamom, wild flowers and the list goes on… ... more   less
