India

A culturally, topographically, historically and ethnically rich country - full of romance, colour and mystique

MAhout Indian Hotels

Given the great diversity of India, this has also bred a wonderful variety in the hotels now available in this glorious country and it is nigh on impossible to give any a ‘star’ rating to them, so we have devised our own rating system wherein they fall into two categories – Select Hotels and Kindred Hotels – marked with an ‘S’ or a ‘K’.

MAhout Select Hotels

MAhout Select hotels (S) are truly special in every way, showcasing the epitome of Indian hoteliering. Being privately owned and each with their own identity, they are in a league of their own and are scattered all over the country – in mainstream cities, in gorgeous, off the beaten track countryside, on beautiful beaches or in heavenly hills. Be it a boutique hotel in the heart of a city, a glorious palace hotel, or a stunning wilderness retreat, staying in a MAhout Select hotel you will experience exceptional service, style, cuisine, comfort, locations and atmospheres that are rarely found in the big, chain hotels. Above all, you will always feel you are an honoured and welcome guest with an identity rather than being just a room number! You will experience the ‘wow’ factor and leave with memories of a genuine ‘Indian experience’ – Indian hospitality at its best. MAhout Select Hotels are truly special – gloriously sophisticated, sleek and comfortable.

MAhout Kindred Hotels

MAhout Kindred hotels (K) are equally special and delicious in their own way. With a slightly lower price tag in some instances, these hotels are wonderfully homely and intimate and most have locations and views to die for, not to mention a fascinating history or architectural grandeur. Staying in any one of them will make you feel you are a friend of the family rather than a visitor; that it is your home rather than a temporary halt; that you are a part of the country and not ‘looking in from the outside’. These delightful, often family run, hotels give you an insight into aspects of Indian life that other hotels cannot hope to do. Sometimes you may be staying with families / owners in historic, family homes; sometimes you may be staying in newly built boutique hotels in unique locations – they all have a sense of peace and intimacy and exclusivity that is rare in India. Whichever MAhout Kindred hotel you choose to stay at, it will allow you to immerse yourself in Indian culture and its wonderfully warm hospitality - revealing ‘village India’ at its best, along with all the colour, chaos and fun that goes with it. MAhout Kindred Hotels are deliciously homely and intimate.
