The real Kerala

Get accustomed to the whiff of coffee and various spices as you check in at Shalimar Spice Garden resort in Thekkady, a small region of Kerala. It’s a sublime escape from your fast-paced life of cities, where you don’t get a moment to admire the little things around you. That’s why Shalimar Spice Garden beckons you to take a break, forget your mundane life a bit and just absorb the purity of nature.

The lushness of spice plantations, the soft resonance in the air and the stillness of landscapes simply can’t wait to soothe your weary soul. The idea of staying at Shalimar is not just a usual vacation, but it’s an excuse to pursue all your favourite things in life – exploring the wildlife at the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, practising yoga in the calm environment of trees and foliage, reading books by the fireside and indulging in blissful ayurvedic massages.

The cottages and rooms are built beautifully to give you wonderful memories. If you would like to rekindle your romance with your partner, Shalimar has a couple of dainty honeymoon cottages for you. You can have a lovely time together with cardamom plantations for view, a private balcony and a garden.

Even the standalone rooms are pretty and interesting. Each one has its own patio to entice you for those lazy hours of brief afternoon naps and quite a few cups of tea perhaps. What makes staying at Shalimar so charming are its architecture and interiors, which reflect both tradition and modern trends.

There are quite a few additional attractions and activities for you to enjoy, such as Kerala’s classical dance performances, tea factory visits, bullock cart rides and boating at Periyar Lake.
