its amazing place and it looks more like an art gallery than a Resort. Nicely located in a quiet place, each room is designed and decorated with different art pieces! Every piece of furniture,fittings, curtains and linens are carefully and tastefully choosen

Booked for Sunday lunch on a friend's recommend and weren't disappointed. La Maison is a little tricky to find but the views through the tea plantations are fabulous. No hotel signs seen but a map and a smart phone got us there. The house is perched on the hillside with commanding views over the valley and down to the plains....

The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained. The food is superb, and the service is outstanding. But like all homestays, what made the trip really memorable was the hospitality...

Great property nicely tucked in away from the madding crowd. The owners weren't there but the way they have done up the rooms says a lot about their hospitality and how well travelled they are. The staff were so helpful and showed us all the tastefully and creatively done up rooms.Would love to visit again and stay next time.
