This is not a review of the entire resort and its facilities,but just about our visit for a lunch. We were driving back from the reserve back to Sarovar Poetree where we were staying and saw Spice Village and decided to try the place for lunch. We opted for the buffet.There was a wide variety of dishes on offer,but somehow... More

A well styled property trying to give village looks and feel. Till that its wonderful. Rest are very much horrible. Food was not not proper. Fixed buffet is available with more stress on local cuisine. No A la carte available. If you insist for it they will only give u buffet items in a la carte at buffet price. For... More

We hopped into spice village for some continental lunch. Since the place is popular among the international tourists, we expected the restaurant to have a decent continental spread but were dissapointed to see very limited options. The food is average and does no justice to its price. The staff is courteous and rhe the property well maintained. Would have been... More

We stayed 2 nights, if we had the time on our tour, another night would have been even better. The cottage we had was superb, though if you can't live without TV or an air con, think about this: There is plenty to do, lovely restaurant, separate bar and besides, books still entertain. As for no aircon, it's cooler here... More

Loved this resort. Fabulous room, lovely staff - so friendly; wonderful Eco initiatives. The solar power system is incredible, organic gardening and recycling all highly creditable. Good food and wonderful ambience. Sadly we only had two nights stay so not enough time! Loved the cooking demonstration and walk around the property. Take ear plugs as the early morning jungle sounds... More

Climbing high into the hills from Madurai around a fabulous bendy road to arrive at the very unassuming Spice Village. Walking through the plantations with jungle around was a fantastic experience. The tea grew on slopes so steep yet the lovely pickers worked very hard all day. Their joy when photographed was just adorable. The weather too was just superb... More

We stayed 3 nights in The Spice Village in March 2015 and enjoyed all the facilities. The rooms were excellent and we appreciated no air conditioning, the fan was more than adequate if needed. The tour round the grounds, the cookery lessons and the dance show are all nice extras. The swimming pool is set mostly in the shade and... More
