We stayed 2 nights at the Spice Village and would have been happy to stay longer. It is really like a village with little houses scattered around the huge well maintained grounds. There are plenty of trees and flowers, it feels like a botanical garden. The hotel is very eco conscious, it was great to see. The food at the... More

I.e. in our group there was one grown up teen which need to take extra bed..not only they provide the good quality bed but they have provided the extra water... More

This property is beautiful. The location is very good. The restaurant was good. I love the concept that the property is a village. We were leaving very early in the morning and the staff made sure that although breakfast would not be served for a few hours - they prepared a light breakfast for us.

No TV in the room so kids have a great outdoor time. The elephant safaris are available nearby, so is the thekkady safari. Boat rides... More

It is an amazing place with a lot of effort to conserve energy. Most of the products are made of recycled stuff. The staff was amazingly sweet and prompt. You feel welcomed from the moment you enter the hotel. The food is out of the world where a lot of variety is home grown organic food. Have never tasted whole... More

I loved every bit of my stay at Spice Village. Free Wifi, excellent food made with all natural n fresh ingredients, there was no television which allowed us to spend more time with each other. Very clean place.

We stayed here at Spice Village while on a tour of India. We had never been to Thekaddy before and stayed here on the recommendation of our tour company. As others have written this is an eco-friendly property and strives to create an environment consistent with that principle. There are some nice features for guests, like the guided walks, cooking...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spice Village is an eco resort in the hills(thekkady) near the Periyar wildlife sanctuary. A cluster of tribal style huts set in a beautiful spice garden is a great escape for most tourists from the heat of the plains, and also a great place for some adventure activities. We have a comfortable pool, an ayurvedic spa, we organise treks into the forest, bamboo rafting and many more. A walk through the property itself is a great way to explore many aspects of nature and the green initiatives undertaken at this eco resort. ... more   less
