I visited Thekkady (Periyar) and stayed in this hotel. The location of the hotel was good and was close to city. The internal and external appearance of the hotel was good. The check in and check out was done on time. Overall service in the hotel was good. The room in the hotel was good with basic amenity. I did not eat food in the hotel. There were many activities organised in the hotel. I would suggest them to improve with the room quality.

Awesome hotel at Periyar. Whenever I go to Thekaddy (Periyar) I love to stay at this hotel. Feels that you are staying in a big garden. The huts are very good. Location is in the city centre and traveller can explore the city by walking. When I reached to the hotel they offered me Organic tea which had a great taste. Awesome experience at this hotel.

A very much styled property attempting to give town looks and feel. Till that its magnificent. Rest are all that much shocking. Nourishment was not fitting. Altered smorgasbord is accessible with more weight on nearby cooking. No A la carte accessible. In the event that you demand for it they will just give u buffet things in individually at smorgasbord cost. For childrens having sustenance is exceptionally troublesome. Very little veggie lover decisions. Spa is great. The bullock truck ride was great, a genuine taste of neighborhood life. Periyer Reserve was OK, a great 'shrubbery walk' however not something that was that diverse to what you would see in different spots. Tiger paw prints, yet even our aide had never at any point seen a tiger! Again however, great preservation endeavors so worth supporting for that alone, But still when lodgings misses on nourishment tally entire stay turns out to be awful. For such a star property this sort of nourishment game plans is not anticipated. Will never go again to this property. No room administration accessible.

Spice Village in Thekkadi is seriously Eco-friendly, as evidenced by the use of local materials in construction and furniture as well as the décor. Water recycling, a bio gas plant, attempts to grow some of their own food are some other factors that prove their genuine green concern. Plastic is conspicuous by its absence, except in the mineral water bottles. The resort is built around the home of the first forest ranger of the erstwhile Travancore state. They have stayed close to his vision by preserving the huge variety of trees and flowering plants on the all provided with labels displaying the scientific and local names like in a botanical garden. The huts, which look rural from outside, are as modern as it gets. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and sofas, fridge, mini safe and decor that springs from the soil. They provide tea and coffee making facility and enough plug points to charge all your gadgets. The sit out is a nice place to have your coffee or tea to the music of birdsong. You don’t need air-conditioning at this altitude. I wondered at the absence of a TV or newspapers in the room while providing free wifi. The assumed purpose, of taking our minds away from the stresses of daily life, is defeated by their providing internet access in every cottage. I also missed room service. The long veranda attached to the restaurant which overlooks the lawns and a huge flame of the forest tree inhabited by a number of birds and monkeys, is a great place to have your meals. The food at the buffet and live counters was pretty good, but for some reason, many people did not think the food was great. It is possible that some of their efforts at innovation and eco friendliness were not appreciated by guests with conservative tastes. There are a number of restaurants just outside the resort; the one in Hotel Ambadi serves typical Kerala food at very reasonable prices. They do not have a full-fledged bar but you can enjoy a beer or a glass of wine at the Wood House Bar, which was originally the residence of the first forest ranger, lived. The old photographs, antique cameras, an ancient billiards table and some other stuff give the bar an ambiance that makes it so different from the face less bars that you find at most hotels. The service was friendly and efficient and the staff almost always went the extra mile to make us happy. People who are not up to a bit of climbing a gentle slope should ask for cottage numbers 101, 106, 107 or 108. Spice Village is the ideal place to relax and unwind for a few days in natural surroundings.

As the name says, it is Village like place. The rooms were superb-typical Kerala style. Excellent service. Area was full of Spice Trees. Nature Lovers will surely like and must go. Natural surroundings made feel like we are into some hollywood movie set. Adventurous. Swim pool was clean. Good to walk here in morning. Some different feel I get even now when I think of. I want others also to have nice time here. Anyway, I plan to go sometime this year too.

Since I had gone to Spice Village to recuperate after a major surgery and therapy, I think what Spice Village did to get me back to my old normal self is simply unexplainable. My stay, with my family, at this exotic place in GOD\'s Own Country has certainly pepped me up.
