We had such a good time in Shalimar Spice Garden that I would rather stay speechless. It was all perfect. The staff was lovely. The food at the restaurant was delicious. You will never forget he garden and the pool. A pity we didn't stay longer. Hope to go back soon.

I stayed here with my wife for two nights in October. Professional and helpful staff, flawless checkin. They even gave me an upgraded room for one night. Nice cottages, clean rooms and hotel premises. Food was great at the restaurant, especially the breakfast. Overall a great stay, with only one shortcoming. On the first night of our stay, they had...

Absolutely beautiful resort! From the moment we arrived it felt very special. Walking down the steps leading to the reception surrounded by the jungle was the best start to a wonderful stay. The cottages are nicely designed and we had a great view which made it feel like we were sleeping right in the thick of the jungle trees. The... More

We stayed in Shalimar during Onam festival and it was a memorable vacation for our family. We stayed 7D/6N and really enjoyed the warmth of the resort. Really appreciable & homely service provided by them and we felt like we were living in our home.

Probably the best resort we visited during our tour of Kerela. Tucked away it is a real charm. Our room was large and comfortable, we made use of the communal pool, hammocks and "red room". The service was fantastic as it was almost everywhere we visited and the food was some of the best we had in our entire trip,... More

This was a welcome relief after the dusty pollution of Kumily, which was very disappointing. The spice garden is a great retreat for families in search of nature,the planting is lush and little sculptures everywhere make beautiful details at different eye levels. The beds were really comfortable and the staff efficient and friendly, we liked this spot alot.

My second trip to this property and even more fond memories. Off the beaten track, in the middle of woods its like living in a tropical forest. With the option of visitng the Thekkady games reserve, spice gardens or walks for those who feel they should do something.
