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.

My friends family and me travelled to various wilderness areas in Periyar tiger reserve landscape and had the opportunity to visit once again the wonderful eco-friendly CGH Spice Village property. My friends family who were visiting first time thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality, cuisine, ambience and the various activities provided despite the challenges thrown by covid situation. Sincere gratitude to Devika, Renju, Harikrishnan, Sarath, Venkat, Dhanesh, the F& B staff, housekeeping, the naturalists, front office and the gardeners for making our stay memorable in these challenging times. Special thanks to the kitchen staff for making the cooking demonstration memorable for my friend Divya and her family. Also to Francis at the billiards table for entertaining the family. Thank you one and all. Can't wait to visit again to this paradise in spice country. Saravana

In my recent trip to Thekkady with family, I stayed in CGH Earth spice village -- even before I visited the property, I got great reviews from from friends and family. They strictly follow covid protocols and all necessary measures are taken to keep the property safe, clean, and hygienic. Particularly, I should mention about the food -- top notch quality and friendly staff -- courteous at all times. Overall excellent stay.

My mom and I stayed at Spice Village for 3 nights. It was such an amazing experience from the start to the end. It was wonderful to have been able to get away from the hustle and bustle and the current chaos going around the world. We really needed the escape and time to recuperate. The staff were so attentive, polite and friendly. There was nothing to fault about this place surrounded by greenery and wildlife. Thank you to all the staff who took care of us so well. I recommend it to anyone who loves nature and a well deserved break.
