La Maison

Top choice heritage hotel in Kotagiri

Flower-draped, French-owned La Maison is a beautifully renovated 1890s Scottish bungalow superbly situated on a hilltop surrounded by tea plantations, 5km southwest of Kotagiri. Casual yet stylish, here you'll find antique furniture, tribal handicrafts, old-Ooty paintings and two friendly dogs. Hike to waterfalls, visit tribal villages, savour home-cooked meals (₹900) or laze in the valley-facing hot tub. A special place!
