Located 2,000 feet up in the mountains this property is truly eco-friendly and a tribute to ancient ways of life. Modern amenities such as plumbing and comfortable beds are to be found in a completely natural setting.

You are met on arrival in the garden where you can create your own cup of tea using a selection of locally grown herbs and spices. From here you might like to start exploring the Periyar Tiger Reserve which you can get to in just a few minutes by car, relax by the river, take a raft along the water, or start birdwatching and fishing. There are no shortage of experiences to enjoy here.

Rooms have modern bathrooms and interiors but their elegance comes in their simplicity. With natural colours and wooden furniture Spice Village’s commitment to the environment shines through the living spaces. Each villa has a private porch for every guest to enjoy as well as allow windows and doors to be left open so natural air can cool the rooms rather than any artificial air-conditioning.

The food here is really special as all ingredients come from within a 50 mile radius so they are fresh and tasty as well as supporting the local communities. There is also the Bar and Library where a billiards table sits and a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are served, a perfect way to end the day. Situated here is also the Tiger Room which is full of information on the Periyar region giving you the opportunity to brush up on your knowledge before going on a fantastic guided tour.
