Spice Village is probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. The hotel grounds were absolutely gorgeous with a lot to do. The staff was also so friendly and accommodating. When we first arrived we were greeted with fresh tea (it was delicious) and were shown to our room or bungalow. The room was so nice, a large... More

We were only staying for 1 night but as we left wished that we could have stayed for longer. Our cottage,151, was very large and comprised a good sized bedroom with lots of hanging space, a large entrance hall, lovely separate sitting room and great bathroom with separate bath and shower. Arrived in time for lunch which we took at... More

Don't understand some of the negative comments. We had a lovely clean room, lots of space, no problem with wifi. Service was faultless and always smiling and polite. Food was very good. Buffet style is not what we would normally want but seems common in Kerala even in very good hotels. Following on some earlier comments that means you do... More

A lovely eco friendly resort which stays true to its name - spice village. Its structured like a small village with cottages and tiny walkways. Sighting of animals, birds and the aroma of spices stay with you even after leaving the resort. We were welcomed with warm herbal tea (made from fresh herbs grown in the resort), which was very...

Again we returned here for the second time and it was extremely good. The restaurant do a very good buffet and the service is excellent. There is a good shop and bar area but not many guests seem to use this, we found it very interesting and relaxing.

We rented 3 villas. WiFI was a joke and we stopped trying to access internet after day 1. Rooms were good and clean but service at the restaurant was below par. The food was not delivered to the table, if it by chance it was then it was cold. Most of the ladies working there were untrained and lacked basic... More

This is probably the top hotel in the area, with prices to match, but do not expect out-and-out luxury. The focus is on the eco-friendly credentials, so the quaint 'thatched cottages' that constitute the rooms, whilst nicely laid out around the property do not have all mod cons - no TV and no bath (although the shower was pretty good)....

What I liked most: The lovely gardens and well-maintained property. Genuinely friendly and attentive staff. It's easy to walk out of the gate and have a wonder around the small town. Listening to the traditional musicians while walking back to our room after dinner and laying in bed falling asleep -- magic. Some negatives The bed was so hard (but... More

In a huge book in reception, explaining CGH group of hotels, right on the first page - the CGH Casino. So let's not get carried away with how much CGH group loves the environment, they set up this 'eco hotel' so they could charge people who are far from home and in search of an exotic experience more for an...

This is a stunning hotel. Everything about our stay here was perfect. The property is beautifully maintained, the rooms clean and beautifully furnished, and the service excellent. The food in the restaurant was lovely. The pool area is perfect for relaxing. We arranged a jungle trek with the naturalist and spent three hours on the tracks of tiger and elephant... More
