A perfect stay in Jungle but little far from Kumily the main activity area. Rooms have gr8 views and old village style. Food is awesome and staff service is very good. They take good care of even your small needs. Would recommend this for an experiencial stay

During our trip to Kerala, we had a one day stay at Spices Lap Resort, Thekkady. The resort itself is located in the middle of a Cardamom Plantation, therefore there is always an aroma of Cardamom in the air. The staff at the resort are very friendly and hospitable. A Staff named “Renjith” was very much helpful during our stay. They even upgraded our room to a Villa - free of charge.(Note: This is based on availability and decision of the Resort management) The breakfast was a treat to have in the morning before we checked out of the resort to continue with our trip.

The Resort is some 20kms away from thekkady and the resort is at a calm location. We stayed in the garden villa during Dec christmas holidays and the view from the balcony is full of trees with shredded leaves. Rooms are Quite big , However the floors are sticky resembles like water floors. The breakfast Menu in the restuarant dont have multiple options and when we stayed for 3 days the items remains to be same with some small changes. Dinner on 31st night is fine, We dont see any Enough Outdoor activities for Kids except some items. Children with less then 5 years will be bored. Suitable for Couples and who wants to take rest, Not suitable for families with kids to enjoy the enitre vacation as the activities in the resort is not sufficient :(
