Spicetree, Munnar


Enjoy breathtaking views of the Western Ghats from this charming mountain retreat

Sitting in the Western Ghats, overlooking tea plantations and the Bison Valley below, this unique mountainside retreat is a beautifully remote escape. The focus here is on enjoying the complete tranquility, yet also getting to know the local area. Beyond the hotel, you can take part in plantation walks, tea factory visits and soft treks to the nearby dolmans – the sites of an ancient civilisation – while back at the SpiceTree there are cooking classes, yoga sessions and tea tastings which end with a delicious high tea. For an afternoon of relaxation, the hotel has a beautiful solar-heated outdoor pool, and a therapeutic mountain spa which offers a fantastic range of soothing treatments and revitalizing therapies.

In this exclusive setting, each of the SpiceTree's rooms and villas enjoy panoramic views overlooking the mountains and valley surrounds. The vibrant Classic Rooms with Jacuzzi combine a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary architecture, while the two Pool Villas are ideal for those wanting a little more space and luxury; exclusive additions include a private pool, living room, and a large bathroom with a luxurious copper bathtub.
