Stay close to nature, in Coorgsource:

Spice Garden is a homestay on a 90 acre family run part coffee estate part private forest estate in southern Coorg. Its proximity to the Nagarhole Wildlife Sanctuary and to the Brahmagiri forest range give this place a unique charm. The homemade wine, traditional food and the passion of the coffee growers make this an idyllic holiday home. Enjoy the bonfire after a day’s adventure and listen to stories of the area from Mr and Mrs Naveen Cariappa, who give you a dose of Coorgi culture.

Gireesh: Great location. Awesome food & amazing hospitality by Navin. Stayed in the tent and was a memorable holiday. The place is surrounded by acres of Cardmom, Pepper & Coffee estates. Completely away from all the rush & crowd. Very near to Nagarhole & Tolpetty national parks.

Nischit, a friendly youngster and his young wife Ruchika.The place is a nature lover's dream come true. One can just forget the world and relax amidst the trees and plants of the vast estate.

Tucked away in a corner of Yercaud, is the quiant colonial bunglow which is the gateway to acres and acres of endless coffee plantation and thick forests. 

Abinash: Very good location and camping here is fun - Couldn't forget these words of Mr Suhas the owner of the coffee estate. Suhas involves you in putting up your own tent as part of fun activities. The trek through the jungle to the secret waterfall is definitely fun. Suhas provides home cook food and not to forget the chocolate cakes made by his wife. Those were really yummy. campfire can be arranged if informed early. Everything about the place is great except Mr Suhas warnings sound travels in the Night ! He tries to scare you and tells stories about Bison etc.

The rain makes the place very beautiful. Spent time bird-watching and go trekking with a naturalist guide through the rainforest. And the best way to enjoy Wayanad monsoons is from a tree house. The Spice garden homestay offers this with an incredible experience of a family run coffee estate! 

Prithvi Kanchi: The places of interest around Wayanad include Chembra peak, Lakkidi, Muthanga wildlife sanctuary and the Banasura sagar dam. Chembra peak is the highest hill in Wayanad and trekking is a risky adventure here to the top of the mountain. Lakkidi is located 58 kilometers north-east of Kozhikode and very near to Vythiri.
