Spice Village, Thekkady

Stretched across a misty hilly ridge, Spice Village is only a short distance away from the Periyar Tiger Reserve. There are over 140 varieties of trees spread across its 14 acres, along with a spice garden and organic vegetable farm. All the food cooked in its kitchen is sourced within a 50-mile radius, Guests can go on nature walks and night treks, take a day trip to the neighboring pepper plantation, learn traditional recipes, go bird watching or fishing. The entire estate is chemical-free—natural oils, plants, and camphor are used pesticides and insecticides. Every day, waste is segregated and recycled in the in-house vermicompost plant to make organic manure for the vegetable and herbal gardens.

Khem Villas, Ranthambore

Situated on the edge of the Ranthambore National Park, this tiger camp is surrounded by 12 acres of forests dotted with lakes, open grasslands, and trees.

The luxurious cottages, tents, and rooms are environmentally-sensitive and has been made with locally sourced materials.
