About Pepper Green Village
Welcome to a world of enchantment. An undisturbed hamlet in the lap of nature where the only sounds you hear are the rustling of the leaves in the wind, chirping of the birds, the music of a river in flow, and sometimes, the rhythm of the drums from the tribal villages in the distance.
Fringed on either sides by paddy fields and thick forests, Pepper Green Village stretches onto the banks of the Kabini River.
Conceptualized and built by a group of nature lovers, the PGV blends and weaves perfectly into the natural serenity and ecosystem of this uniquely beautiful place, like a tapestry of immense beauty. A place to soak in the beauty of nature, rest, relax and rejuvenate….It is also a place to meditate, and connect with one’s inner self.
With over 200 trees and flowering bushes, vines of pepper and the scent of spices, the Village has eight exclusive cottages for the most discerning, nature loving visitors. With names like Cardamom, Stevia, Lavender, Ginger, Garlic , Saffron and….., each one of these cottages epitomizes the concept of the village…to blend with nature and be a part of it. Stevia is a beautiful suite overlooking the Kabini river, made entirely in wood and bamboo. Built on the concept of a tree house, it has a pretty lounge area, a spacious bedroom and an amazing loft where any artist or poet would feel inspired. The open balcony with its bamboo and wood seats and tables is the ideal place to reflect and dream.
The Village was built taking care not to destroy the trees on the land as far as possible. As a result, you have trees going right through the cottages. The dreamy and amazingly pretty Cinnamon is one such cottage built on a raised platform over 20 feet above the ground with not one, but three trees going right through the bedroom. Cassia matches Cinnnamon in charm and beauty. Ginger and Garlic are the remaining two traditional cottages made on the concept of tree-houses. Lavishly spacious and elegantly furnished, all these cottages are constructed in wood and bamboo in tribal architectural styles and have the natural scent of spices and the surrounding vegetation, and stay cool even on a warm day.
One of the most charming and enchanting features of the PGV is an amazing tree-top walkway made of wood and bamboo and raised on stilts and tree-trunks. It connects Cassia and Cinnamon with Stevia and gives a panoramic view of the beautiful surroundings. It has charming little spots to sit down and relax, with coffee or a book, while watching the birds nesting in the tree tops and the butterflies flitting around.
For those who would prefer a more ‘grounded’ experience, one can choose from one of three modern cottages – Saffron being the most premium with a bedroom, lounge and an equipped Kitchenette. Mint overlooks the lush green paddy fields while Lavender directly overlooks Kabini River. With all modern amenities, these spacious cottages are simple, yet luxurious.These cottages are made of traditional and locally available contruction materials which ensure a natural ‘climate-control’ and a unique feel.
