Spice Village, Thekkady, Kerala
Spice Village is a resort located in the hilly tea and spice growing region of Thekkady and it is couple of minutes from the entrance gate of the Raft at the Periyar Lake. The resort is constructed like a tribal village and has several varieties of spices and fruits growing on its sprawling grounds. Its location, within minutes away from the entrance gate of the Periyar Tiger Reserve, makes it the perfect gateway to exploring the area.
The resort is constructed like a traditional tribal village and has several varieties of spices and fruits growing on its sprawling grounds, offering the experiences of spices that the region is famous for – such as the pepper and cardamom.
Re-imagined for the modern independent traveler, the village is a tribute to the local tribes’ ancient ways of life. Of course, the comforts of a modern hotel exist, but they never intrude. Modern plumbing, comfortable beds and hot showers find their place, but in a setting stripped down to its original. Hewn stone replaces shag carpets, and birdsong takes the place of television.
