“Delicious buffet lunch in dense forest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

They have a traditional Indian welcome and in the beginning what was served to us was the lemon grass-cardamom-ginger tea with some cashew nuts. After that a guided tour of about 45 minutes in the spice garden.
The area which they they take around the visitors and tourists is about 5 acres. the rest of the spices are grown in the 25 acres and the visitors are not allowed in this area.
In the garden visitors can have an elephant ride by paying for this but we didn't. After the visit everyone is given a light bath with Ayurvedic herbal water. the water is poured from a coconut shell ladle at a point on the spine on the neck. it really relaxes you along with selling a chill & shiver down your spine. me getting the chills below.
They serve small quantities of cashew feni (alcoholic) and you are supposed to have this before you have your lunch.
The lunch has both options of vegetarian and non vegetarian buffet. the food was very good.

“Add spice to u r life”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

As a nature entusiast was very exicited to see and know about the spices which we use day in and out. The reception was courteous, the plan meticulous, guide knowledgle and whole experience thrilling. The lunch was tasty and wanted to bring back plants for our garden which were not available. The trip to Goa would have been incomplete without a visit to the spice garden of Sahakari.

“Nice family spice plantation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

My friend and I booked a tour for the day while in the area. The staff was very nice, great lunch, and the guide on the tour taught us a few things we didn't know about spices we use almost everyday. It was a great way to spend a day.

“unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

very unique experience for the entire family on a recent trip to goa --- the farm is privately owned, one is welcomed with a smile and shown around by a young woman who knows her stuff and speaks good English --- the tour is unhurried and very professionally done --- would highly recommend a visit

“Intresting Nature Farming but Elephant Ride Not worth....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

The guided tour to spice plantation was interesting. Food was also OK. But elephant ride is too costly and not delivered, as assured.
