There are plenty of possibilities around the SpiceTree Resort for soft treks, which are not very strenuous. A trek to the Dolmen Houses is popular among our guests.
The SpiceTree swimming pool is the first and the only solar heated out-door pool in Kerala, with a stunning Bison valley view. Besides, we use mountain spring water. It will be a unique experience to swim in such pristine water, watching the picturesque Bison Valley Mountain Ranges to the side. It is not a very deep pool. This allows children also to be entertained. The sides of the pool has wooden deck, with pool side chairs to relax.
No other resort in Munnar can claim such a solar heated pool in a marvelous mountain ambience. Being heated gives you the opportunity to relax in warmth even when it is cool or misty. If you don’t feel like being in the water, you can also catch some sun by relaxing on the pool-side couches with your reading material. The ambience is also ideal for photography. You can freeze some wonderful moments here for your family album.
The pool is well maintained and kept sparkling clean at all times. If you are bound for SpiceTree Munnar, do remember to carry your swimming outfit. We guarantee you a truly special experience at this premium boutique mountain resort.
