On tour in South India for Spice Cultutivation, we enjoyed this property. There are very good signs throughout the property about the trees and other growing thngs. Unfortuneately we had set meals, the buffet of local delicacies looked outstanding, and we could partake of them and enjoy them at breakfast. Most enjoyed was the Putte and Idlis with sambar. Very...

We spent three nights here and couldn't fault it. The staff treated us like Royalty, they couldn't have been warmer or more attentive. The chalet was luxurious and the food was delicious. We had a great evening in the Woodhouse Bar, drinking cocktails and snacks and playing snooker. We were treated to a delicious cake for our anniversary, a great... More

We stayed for three days in March this year. Our "hut" was very comfortable. There was a nice little pool and we were very close to the wildlife sanctuary - just a very short tuk tuk ride. However, the absolute highlight of this hotel is the sensational food and waiter service. The main buffet restaurant is excellent and the range... More

Firstly, I cannot rate this hotel high enough. From the surroundings, the resort, the lodges, the food, the activities, the service and last of all the amazing staff. We started our Indian adventure in Thekkady and didn't know how the rest of the holiday would be able to live up to the amazing experience we had at Spice Village. Ajith... More

Amazing property! Recycle and conservation has been used in true sense for theme. Swimming pool with no chemical, rooms and decor has the (luxury) village feel. Warm staff and lovely food, close to the market which also helps stay connected on your phone. Free wifi saves on data.

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
