Welcome to Spicy Villa Eco-Lodges!

Spicy Villas are simple, handmade bungalows, built of natural materials and surrounded by pristine nature with amazing mountain views. This is not a luxury accommodation, but it is a luxurious experience!

About Spicy Villa

Spicy Villa Eco-Lodges are not just accommodation

...but much, much more! We are responsible for local environment, local communities and for our guests!


Thank you dear guests for your great reviews on TripAdvisor! We have been awarded another Certificate of excellence for the year 2014! In our opinion the foundation of excellence is a personal touch and you are not just our guests, you are our friends.


Our bungalows are built in a traditional hut style, used by local villagers for centuries. If you choose to stay with us, you will get a unique chance to experience the authentic hill tribe way of life in a close connection with the surrounding nature.


We strive to reduce our impact on our surroundings by using natural and local materials, organic methods for farming, solar power for our electricity supply, growing our own fruits, vegetables and herbs to use in our dishes and collaborating with locals.


We support local communities through various programs such as our Share the Dream project. We set up schools where we teach local children English. We also provide locals with medical assistance and provide work for them by employing them.
