The reception staff were welcoming and quickly we had our room key. The rooms were dotted around the grounds in single and double units. We had a single unit which was spacious and comfortable. Every day they give tours of the facilities which we found very interesting. We were shown the solar panels, electricity storage, composting methods and the vegetable...

We stayed at Spice Village as part of Saga's Tour of South India Tour. It was idyllic. The grounds were lovely and as it was very close to Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary we woke in the mornings to the sound of monkeys in the trees across the road. When we walked just outside the village to the shops there were monkeys...

This is a excellent property that takes to a complete village environment, the property is vast and one can take a morning walk in between woods. The hotel has no TV and air-conditioning, believe me you won't need either of them as there is so much to do in the hotel or just sit in peace and be in your...

Spice Village is really a little village. The cottages are spread out across lush grounds. With their elephant grass thatched roofs, you really feel that you are someplace unique. This was one of our top favorite places we stayed during our 2 month trip. We have stayed at two other CGH Earth properties, Coconut Lagoon in Kumarakom and Brunton Boatyard...

Loved the concept of the resort and how they have been so thoughtful of the environment. They compost, have an organic garden, water conservation , solar panels and the 50 mile restaurant only uses produce from a 50 mile radius. They also use only glass bottles in the resort - doing away with plastic which is harmful for health and...

We stayed at Spice Village for 3 days and 2 nights and enjoyed being there. The ecofriendly concept is great. Everyone is helpful and friendly. The food is organic and really good though overpriced.

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
