Hotel is very nice for family. The villas are spacious and beautiful, no need of AC. It gives a feel of staying close to nature. Staff is very much courteous and helpful. I will recommend for stay in Thekkady.

We've stayed in a few CGH hotels and found them generally very good indeed. Arrival 5/5. Very swift and friendly check-in. We were given a necklace and a choice of fresh herbal teas. Our cases were in the room quickly. First impressions were very good. Close to the centre of town too, if you need to stroll in and buy...

We have stayed before and each stay is as special as the last. The thatched villas are very comfortable, sitting outside first thing in the morning with a cup of tea, listening to the bird song is one of my favourite things. Do take part in the activities, enjoy the dancing, cooking and all that is on offer, and appreciate...

I had traveled here on my Honeymoon in December. There is no other phrase then .. "LOVE IT" for this resort. The hut's roof is covered with elephant grass that keeps it cool. It looks really authentic and traditional from the outside but is very modern and basic to the core at the same time from inside. They have a...

Had two nights here as part of a group. Beautiful, authentic, atmospheric, top quality. Excellent service and very well trained staff. Great food and indoor/outdoor eating. Beautiful grounds and thatched cottages. Can walk into the village and browse the local shops or walk down to the tiger reserve. Highly recommended.

Spice Village was the second CGH property we stayed at. This hotel consists of clusters of thatched roof modern buildings with all the amenities, including a porch, set amongst magnificent trees and exotic plants. The two restaurants on property are both excellent, although we preferred the indoor one with the veranda. The store on the premises sells beautiful fabrics and...

A very beautiful property set amongst native plants and trees. The hotel has beautiful simple clean cottages to offer on its vast property and they are very private and built in an eco-friendly and sustainable manner. We loved the verandahs around the cottage with chairs to sit out and watch the rains and breath in the fresh forest air. Its...

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
