Excellent property, excellent service, excellent food, excellent amenities, excellent staff.Hence a stay for less than 2 nights would be doing injustice to the place and for your money too. Its an organic resort, most of the resources are generated within the periphery of the resort. Ample of activities to do in the resort. The resort is placed just 10 minutes... More

This hotel was fabulous. The room, service, food were exceptional. My only regret is that we did not stay for longer. We had a little bungalow which was spotless. The restaurant was buffet style and had a lot of choices. Could not decide which dessert to have, so had all 6!

Comfortable rooms, good food, good service and friendly staff. It's an organic resort.. Could not figure out why they don't have TV in the room. Granted, TV's are not organic yet but it's taking things a bit too far. The place can also get funny smells at times perhaps due to being organic ?? Landscaping is over done making one... More

Amazing hotel from the time we enter it. The service is outstanding. It's clean and relaxing and the food is just amazing. The smell of the scents all around is just refreshing. The traditional music played in the restaurant is very touchy.

I did not stay at the hotel and just did an impromptu walk in for dinner. Only once I reached the reception area did I realize that this was a CGH property.

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
