  • Spice Village is specially designed for city folks who want some time away from the maddening pace of the city life, yet cannot do with out the city conveniences. The resort makes an ideal romantic getaway. From misty mountains to spice plantations, the settings around the Spice resort has everything to enamour you. This visually appealing resort in Periyar charm you with its salubrious climate and cardamom hills.

    Spice Village provides you with accommodation in cottages that are made of bricks and logs. The elephant grass-thatched roof resembles the traditional tribal huts and is made using techniques employed by the tribals. Despite being very traditional in its structure and lookout, it incorporates all the modern day conveniences and the latest amenities. The resort strikes a fine balance between the traditional and modern features. Air conditioning is intentionally avoided to maintain the natural feel of the resort.

    At the Spice Village Resort, guests get an opportunity to sample authentic Kerala dishes, prepared in local flavours. The meals served here taste best when they are enjoyed at an unhurried pace. Generous with spices and coconut, you can relish these dishes comfortably seated on the wooden tables. You can chose to have your meals outdoors , sitting on the veranda as well. When you are struck by the hunger pangs between your meals, head straight to the 'Tiffin room', and take a few light bites. The furniture in rosewood are pieces from a restaurant that was built a century ago. If you loved what you eat here and is waiting to experiment them at your kitchen, attend the cookery classes conducted here.

    The resort is a great destination to indulge in some Ayurveda treatments. You can leave all your stress behind and get yourself pampered with the healing and rejuvenation therapies that are available here. Expert masseurs and well-qualified Ayurveda doctors at Spice Village work together to give you a new lease of life.

    What People say about Spice Village..

    “Exotic retreat”

    We were delighted by the spice gardens, the spacious bungalows, the cooking demonstrations, the musicians playing sitars while we dined on the outdoor deck tasting all sorts of Indian specialties. We visited the nearby Periyar natural park. The staff was friendly, the location is ideal for anyone who wants to spend some time in the midst of exotic spice gardens. Reviewed 25 February 2013

    “Beautiful, Peaceful Mountain Retreat”

    Great service from our greeting upon arrival to our departure!! excellent restaurant service, do take the time to watch the cooking demonstration and get the recipes. The spa service and personnel were outstanding!!! Rooms were clean and attractive, the bar was right out of early 20th century, with great cocktails and beer! food was also outstanding with many offerings and either a buffet or ala carte menu. Reviewed 24 February 2013

    “Charming, loved the setting”

    Spice Village is special. Lovely individual bungalows built in traditional style set in beautiful gardens full of spice and food trees and managed sustainably. The food was great, much coming from their own gardens, serves on the balcony of the restaurant. Don't miss the naturalist led tour of the gardens, worm farms, paper making. The Ayurvedic massage was really good. The surrounding village of Kumily was full of spice shops and great place to wander and mingle with the locals. Reviewed 14 February 2013

    KarmaKerala Review of Spice Village

    Classic hill station resort that pays real attention to its green responsilities with solar power, extensive home grown food and reuse of waste into compost and fertiliser. Paper making and a tour of the grounds with the ecologist is a must. Love the mosquito egg traps.

    • How Karma Kerala Hotels Rates Work

      The price of hotel rooms changes from day to day and season to season so we check for each customer to see what the best rate will be depending on their requirement, length of stay and so on. If you want a wonderful stay, why not find our what we can do for you.
    • What does Cheapest Mean

      People assume that the cheapest rates apply to all rooms so they book the cheapest! But, they are missing a trick on this: hotels have great rooms and rooms on the wrong side of the tracks and so they offer out the low quality rooms to online portals who don't care about quality, just the price of the room. We, on the other hand, tend to focus on quality so we ask for specific rooms that may be more expensive but damn, they are much better too!
    • Never Knowingly Beaten on Price

      We know people are nervous and ask themselves: can this be true? So we make an offer to you: if you can find the room cheaper, we will match your quote. That means you have nothing to worry about and you get the best local advice.
