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.

We came from Madurai ie from the east by bus. I am sure there are buses from Kochi/Aleppey but I do not know them. I saw / was bitten by no mosquitos but my wife had a small freakish encounter with a tiny hairy caterpillar that gave her a nasty rash for a few days!

"The whole site is beautiful. If you have mobility issues a room close to reception makes good sense."
"Site is on a slope so request room near the main Reception if problems with walking."
"All seemed equally good to me. It was a beautiful peaceful place to stay."
"Room 101 is best located."
