If you need evidence that comfort is easily obtained without intruding on Nature, you don't need to look further than Spice Village's cottages. No fancy carpets. Just coir mats on bare stone floors. Modern bathrooms and interiors, but with a spartan elegance based on simple, natural materials and local woodcraft. No artificial air conditioned spaces here. Just cool, naturally lit rooms and airy private porches. So open a window, and your mind as well. And let your senses be enveloped by the sounds and scents wafting in on the forest air.
The Spice Garden Cottages come with a small little living area and a spacious bedroom with an attached bathroom. The Elephant Grass which has been used to thatch the roof keeps the temperature within the cottage, very comfortable all year round.
Deluxe Cottage with Private Garden
The cottages at Spice Village are inspired from the local dwellings and created from the locally available designs and materials. Elephant grass abundantly available at the Periyar Tiger Reserve is used as the roofing for these wooden cottages and it’s an interesting experience to observe the local craftsmen when they re-thatch the cottages. The Private Garden Villas have a cozy little living area and a private garden in front of the cottage.
