Detailed Info

Nestled amidst a lush green landscape, the Shalimar Spice Garden has wonderfully designed cottages nicely spread out in the vast property. The cottages are built in Indo-European architectural style. They are surrounded by coffee, cardamom and other spice plants which help in offering privacy to each cottage. A gentle mountain stream and a wooden bridge built over the stream add a special charm to the resort. And as you can imagine, the natural ambience of the property attracts many colorful birds and butterflies. 

The multi-cuisine restaurant "Falling Leaves" serves delicacies from the Italian, Continental, Indian and Kerala cuisine. It features homely decor and antique furniture. The resort also has a lounge area where guests can enjoy choice drinks and read books from the library, all of this in the warmth of a fireplace. Guests can also enjoy relaxing ayurvedic therapies in the spa and take a refreshing dip in the sparkling pool of the resort.
