Come and take a look at this plantation, They will not show the total of the area but a small part with some of the plants for you to smell, touch and explore. Typical lunch was included, not that spicy...

Its natural and organic with some good hospitality by the staff.Food was good.....i mean really good and was served in a bit different way....it is a cool and soothing place in goa....better to be there if we want to just see some natural things otherwise its boring.....Youngsters can avoid this place as lots more to be done in Goa.....

Had a great few hours at the spice plantation. We took an English tour round. Just myself, my friend and a lovely older English couple. Our guide was fantastic. Knew everything about all the spice and we got to smell, taste and learn a lot. They showed us 'Tarzan', who is a man who climbs trees to get nuts down, was amazing to watch.

We tried some Goan alcohol- Cashew Feni- which was strong but nice. The buffet was really tasty. You eat it from a plate made from a leaf of one of the trees.

Great place!

Honestly, this was the crappiest place we had had the misfortune of visiting in Goa. It is simply waste of time, money and energy. There is nothing that you can "learn" from a small and horrible tour of spice plantations. Apart from it, the food that they serve is undoubtedly the worst you can find anywhere in the world.

Trust me, with the sun-soaring up at 40 degree Celsius, this place has no air-conditioning and has nothing to offer. It makes your trip worse when you have burnt yourself up in Dudhsagar Falls and end up at this location for worst excuse for lunch.

The food served here includes tea before lunch, probably to kill your appetite. And this could be a blessing in disguise as the food served is inedible. Menu consists of boiled rice, fried rice, lentils, chick-peas, chicken gravy and buns for bread. Surprisingly, the fish that was supposed to be there, never reached the table.

Please avoid at all costs. Instead head straight to a beach and relax.
