Discovering the Hillside of South India
on Dec 25, 2017
Spicetree Munnar reveals itself to you layer by layer from the treehouse like office and welcome area,to the lemon grass scented rooms, the exquisite dining, the tearoom tasting, and the hikes of the hillside and valley. And let’s not forget the spa and yoga center. What’s not to love. The service by Dahneesh and his team was impeccable. Stay several days to truly discover this oasis and the beauty of the surrounding tea plantation, cardamon farm, dolmen burial grounds and valley.
Up in the mountains

The Spice tree resort is up with the tea plantations at 4000 ft (1200 meters) and built into the hillside with plenty of steps and steep paths. It might be tough for the physically challenged.
Having said that the rooms are stunning with views across and down into the valley, the infinity pool and surrounds have stunning views as does the dining room. We found the cooking class and tea tasting to be very informative and great fun Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were all most attentive. It was the perfect place to finish our tour of Kerala. I have no hesitation in recommending this resort.
One of my favorite hotels ever!

What more could you want? The hotel is perched on a hillside will all rooms and the restaurant having a fabulous view. The food in the restaurant was some of the best we had in South India. The hotel offers nice, guided, walks in the area. The staff seems to just magically appear when you need something. The rooms are gorgeous.
As I said in the title, one of my favorite hotels ever, anywhere.

Its a scenic luxury nature resort which is very well maintained and quite beautifully managed. We had an excellent stay for 5 days. Four days in Classic double room and one night in Pool Villa.
Classic double are large rooms with large balconies. Bathrooms are big with Jetted Tubs.
Pool Villas are luxury at its best.Temperature controlled private pool, brass bathing tubs, huge bathroooms, separate dining space, living room and a bed room. Fantastic view from the pool.
Restaurant and coffee shop are very good. Food was good
Best part of the resort is it's staff. I have never seen more courteous, helpful, polite and well behaved staff in any hotel or resort ever. The have set the benchmark quite high and will be difficult for anybody to match it.
Last bug not the least, they upgraded our stay from double bed to pool villa for our last night there.
Had a fantastic experience there and will definitely stay there if i ever visit Munnar again.
