Lonely Planet review
This CGH Earth place takes its green credentials very seriously and has captivating, spacious cottages that are smart yet cosily rustic, in pristinely kept grounds. Its restaurant does lavish lunch and dinner buffets (₹1000 each), there's a colonial-style bar and you can find the Wildlife Interpretation Centre here, which has a resident naturalist showing slides and answering questions about the park. Good value out of high season when rates halve.
Our independent authors have visited Spice Village and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Kerala.
