Spice cottage gets its name from its gardens an acre of spice trees and plants. The cottage is set on a hillsde in a sub tropical climate with monkeys and birds as neighbours . Every effort has been made to make this a unique house as eco friendly as possible using locally grown woods and locally hand made sheets as well as a passive ventilation system, a banana plant roof terrace to keep the house cool all the hot water is by solar energy. Spice cottage is part of the Welikande estate so it has the advantages of being private but also there is access to our very well thought of restaurant where meals can be served or brought to your own dinning room.
