Lovely setting. Excellent service. Good food. Lovely bathroom toiletries. Interesting on-site activities. There is even a good shop (places I usually avoid). And the laundry service was superb. Wish we had stayed longer.

Despite being close to town, you would think you were miles from anywhere. It is built as little thatched chalets around the main restaurant, reception area and swimming pool. The staff are super friendly and efficient, that's all of them from, reception, cleaning and waiting. The grounds are delightful with numerous unusual trees. There is lots to do close by.... More

How nice can this place be. Beautifully equipped and decorated cabins on a trail of well planted and labelled herbs, trees and plants. From the moment you walk in you will be welcomed to the moment the staff line up outside to wave you good bye. Based on a theme of environmentally friend and Eco safe. Love this place. Don't...

After a three hour long journey from Munnar to Thekkady, when you step into a space like Spice Village, all your worries and exhaustion seem to instantly bow out of your system. One of the most exquisite CGH properties located in Thekkady, Spice Village is surely an experience to reckon with. Not only does it have the most gorgeous cottages,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in January on a bespoke tour organised by the excellent Kerala Connections. This is a really good hotel and every aspect exceeded our expectations especially the 50 mile diet and the old fashioned bar. I really don't see how anyone could find fault and we would definitely go again.

We recently toured Kerala and stayed in some excellent hotels but this was our favourite- brilliant. Our 'room' was in essence a small cottage with a thatched roof. The grounds are beautifully maintained. It has a really nice pool. The food is absolutely superb. They also have a really nice bar with a snooker table. The icing on the cake... More

We stayed for 2 nights during a short tour of Kerala. Welcoming staff. Friendly, helpful service. We didn't eat in the buffet restaurant but dined outside, warmed in the cool night air by a fire pit, in the "50 mile diet" restaurant which claims to only use local produce from within a radius of 50 miles. There is a large... More

I completely forgot to write a review for such a great experience. I was here in January 2014 for my birthday as I was working in India and had yet to travel south. I loved it! Such a green luscious place. Fantastic staff who treated me perfectly for my birthday! Would go back in a heartbeat! Loved my hut, so... More

Lovely setting with beautiful pool, tennis and badminton courts. Food was served buffet style and freshly prepared. Ayurvedic massages are available and truly relaxing. Friendly staff and evening entertainment options are offered, that is an Indian dance performance, a cooking demonstration given by one of the cooks

Stunning hotel. Beautiful soft mist wakes one up in the mornings before you head off to a bountiful breakfast. The fruit and vegetables cooked in the kitchen is gathered form farmers in the vicinity. A great hotel which practices eco friendly ways of the future.
