Spice Village Periyar - Kerala

 

Information about Spice Village

Set amidst spice plantations, Thekkady Periyar is more known for its Periyar Wildlife Reserve. Spice Village,Thekkady Periyar, Kerala is just a stone's throw away from the game reserve and comprises of individual cottages set amidst a landscaped spice garden. Spice Village. Just a mirror, held up to an age old culture and a living harmony. This is the tribal village, reborn for the modern traveller. Curling around a misty ridge 2,000 ft high in the Periyar fastness, there is an arborarium, one man's personal forest, with fruit trees, rare herbs and a profusion of flowering plants.

And here is the SPICE VILLAGE RESORT. A timeless experience in ecological living, recreated for the modern traveler. A village, produced whole, using mountain spirit and tribal wisdom as building material. Your cottage is brick and log, the roof thatched with the same elephant grass used in tribal huts, woven in the same traditional techniques. 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 natural essence. Hewn stone replaces shag carpets. Birdsong takes the place of television. Air-conditioning? Unnecessary anyway in the fine mountain climate, and what would it do but mask the heady scents of spice forests? At Spice Village,Thekkady Periyar, Kerala its easy to think that you're in the middle of wild nature

The Spice Village Resort, Thekkady Periyar, Kerala has a swimming pool, games facilities and an excellent restaurant. Ayurvedic treatment is also available on site.

Restaurant at Spice Village

The Raj too, left its mark on the Cardamom Hills. Early efforts at conservation came from its dedicated forest rangers, who loved the land and its people as their own.

Today, it's the rainforests, the animals and the vast silences that attract the modern visitor. On the road to Spice Village, it's easy to feel this centuries-old allure yourself. The earth boils in a fertile outpouring, every conceivable shade of green, flecked with the crimson and gold of mountain flowers. This is a world of forests patterned in dappled sunlight. Plantations of rubber, coffee and spice. Rolling highlands and crisp, cool air.

 
 

Facilities at Spice Village

The Village offers many other facilities, including a conference hall and games room, complete with table tennis, caroms and chess boards, and a floodlit outdoor badminton court. The highlight, though, is the garden itself, bursting with a rich array of spice trees. Each plant is carefully marked and there is a botanist at hand to answer any question. The design of each cottage was inspired by the native tribesmen of periyar, the Oorali and Mannan, who lived in similar dwellings. Infact, one of the cottages currently being used as an office, is an orginal tribal hut wihch has been modified.
