Detailed Info

Spice Village is an ideal getaway resort for leisure travellers offering them an authentic tribal village atmosphere. Situated close to the Periyar Sanctuary in Thekkady, the resort has plenty of fruit trees, exotic herbs and flowering plants. Apart from the mountain air and the tribal feel, the resort also features top-notch facilities required by a modern traveller. It is a chemical-free zone and the tribal villagers help the resort staff understand the ecology of the place. 

The luxury villas of Spice Village have naturally lit rooms and breezy private porches. They have thatched roofs made from elephant grass. The villas, therefore, look quite similar to tribal huts but are far more luxurious featuring contemporary interiors, stone floors and modern bathrooms all of which display a Spartan elegance. Some of the larger cottages have a private garden with benches and fruit trees. The multi-cuisine restaurant '50 miles' serves sumptuous delicacies made from ingredients that are sourced from within a 50-mile radius.
