What was once a Spice plantation spread across acres of land has been transformed into a beautiful 4.5 acres of heaven, the Spices Lap Luxury Resort. As you enter the resort which is built along a winding road with impeccably landscaped gardens, you’ll see cottages and villas with architecture designs indigenous to Kerala and South Asia. As for the interiors, the restoration of these relics of the past such as wooden door frames, windows, furniture etc. not only adds to the old world charm of the place but it also helps us to conserve our heritage.

A team awaits you at the open reception (to welcome you in traditional Kerala style) where you can sit and finish your check-in procedure while basking in the glory of nature. The structure containing the lobby exudes its vernacular heritage and houses a stylishly appointed restaurant and travel desk as well. In the evening be ready for a cultural program celebrating the heritage of Kerala. Later, at dinner you could sit and enjoy a beautiful meal with some fun music. You could make suggestions, sing along or if you are a singer yourself, you are most welcome to grab the mic. It’s the best way to kick-start your vacation at Thekkady.

The plantation contains over 100 species of spices and guests will find it a fascinating experience to explore and view the processes that go into the manufacture. The accommodations at Spices Lap feature Heritage Deluxe and Premium, two storey cottages that are exquisite examples of Kerala's vernacular architecture, built entirely of wood with carved pillars, wood panels on the walls and tiled gabled roofs. A remarkable feature of the heritage deluxe cottages are traditional swings called “aatu thottil” intricately carved from wood and suspended from beams on the ceilings.

Higher up the slope, sumptuously furnished villas with splendid views and equipped with Jacuzzis and Garden villas are designed with sloping roofs display influences of elements of south-east Asian architecture from China and Japan. Nestled above the lush canopy of a tropical forest, in a secluded part of the plantation an extensively furnished tree house looks out at the mountains in the distance.
