Thekkady - Woods n Spice, A Sterling Holidays Resort
Ranked #21 of 43 Hotels in Thekkady
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 November 2013

The rooms are fairly small with a completely wooden finish (to give it a cabin-like feel). The bathrooms, while clean, are ill-equipped (no shampoo!)
The food is well below par and service wasn't particularly impressive either.
The staff is friendly and the travel desk in particular was very helpful!
There are several other resorts in the vicinity that seemed much better - would recommend choosing one of the others.

Woods n Spice Resort in Thekkady was the 2nd Resort which we had booked during our trip to Kerala. As Sterling Time Share Members for more than 15 years, we had booked the Resorts at Munnar & Thekkady for 2 nights each. After our more than pleasant experience at Munnar, the Resort at Thekkady was good; though not as great as Munnar.
The Resort at Thekkady is near the Periyar Tiger Reserve (about 5 min by car from the Main Gate). It has a small swimming pool (which was missing in Munnar Resort) and the Rooms are arranged around the pool. The Resort has a wood finish which gives a feeling of warmth.
The Room was pleasant but small. It was clean but was short of luxurious.
The common facilities in the Resorts were good with holiday activities organized at the Resort by the staff. We witnessed a classical dance performance, which was short but sweet.
There is not much to do in Thekkady. We did not take the jeep safari which was scheduled early in the morning and hence cannot comment on the same. We however took the cruise in the Tiger Reserve. We also attended a Martial Arts Performance, which was Ok.

From the ambiance, the rooms, the layout of the property, the friendly staff, the highly skilled house-keeping guys with their unique designs with the bath towels greeting you everyday, the food and the pool it was a fantastic experience. There was not even a single blemish that I could spot with this property! I went there with my kids, spouse and parents and it was a very pleasant 4 nights and 3 days that we spent there!!!

Room Tip: If the cottages are not available then the guest rooms, especially the top floor overlooking the poo...

We ie my wife Rekha, my daughter Jane and my son Joshua went to Sterling Holidays Wood n Spice at Thekady from 14.10.13 to 16.10.13 for holidays. The place is very excellent if you are looking for a break from the busy world. A nice place to rejuvinet yourself and go back home fresh. The team led by Mr Rony George who is the manager of the resort is excellent. The staff is very courteous, helpful and friendly. The room service is excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and we have come back home with sweet memories.

Located close to the Periyar game sanctuary, this is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are well appointed with wooden floors and walls. There is a nice view of the greenery if you sit at the verandah.The location is within a short distance from the city and very close to the center where you can observe the local traditional dance of Kathakali and Martial Art of Kalaripayithu. The staff are very cooperative. The stay was simply enjoyable.

Its a good resort with good staff but lack maintenance. I visited with my wife, parents and 1 year old. They helped us with cooking baby food. Staff were very helpful. Location is very near to Periyar river and elephant court. If they little improve on maintenance e.g pool than its a wonderful place to stay with Family. I would like to thank them for taking care of my infant food needs.
