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. Compared to other hotels there is not very much to chose from especially if you are a vegetarian. Rather strange at a hotel where ecofriendliness is...

If I could give this place a better than excellent rating, I would. It has so much to offer that I don't know where to start. First, the retreat itself. Immaculate luxury cottages which are yet genuinely ecologically friendly, surrounded by a staggering variety of trees and plants. The tranquillity and serenity this commitment to Nature and her wonders brings...

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
