This place is hard to get to. One has to be driven (don’t dare do it yourself) down a narrow, steep, worn road of dirt, rocks, potholes and asphalt past goats and construction sites to get here. You’re welcomed at the lobby and check-in is fine but expect broken English or no English from many of the staff. To be...

My wife and I stayed three nights in this fabulous resort. The whole place was unique in its design and atmosphere. We had a delightful experience. The service, food, drink and accommodation were exactly to our taste. I would strongly recommend anyone to take the quite long journey to visit this enchanting place.

You already start imagining Spice tree to...

Once you reach the property you find yourself in an oasis of calm and relaxation! The rooms are extremely large, well appointed and very comfortable. Our room had a very large balcony with sitting...

What a lovely place high up above the rolling hills of tea plantations. The rooms are extremely spacious and well equipped with spacious bathrooms. The views are truly spectacular across the misty valleys. Lovely friendly and helpful staff. The quality of the food is superb.

My initial impression was that this is a basic hotel. We checked in after a very long drive and were tired. How wrong I was. The view from our room was superb and sitting on the veranda looking at it was so restful. The spa is rather basic but the treatments very good and skilled. You have to order dinner...
