The Windermere Estate is serene and calm with a glimpse of a simple life from India of Old. Nestled in a cardamom and coffee plantation it is a family owned place that is surrounded by natural beauty. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and finished with a dark wood. A true gem when visiting Munnar! Our only disappointment was that we... More

First of all let me tell you that the pictures do not do this place or property justice. This place is everything you want and more. The guided hikes were wonderful, the food, beverages, and gorgeous views made this place absolutely worth every cent. The staff is fantastic, the grounds are beyond beautiful. This place won't disappoint!

We spent only one night at the Windermere estate. It is high in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. We had two rooms next to each other which were basic but had everything you need. The service was very friendly and helpful. First we had afternoon tea with some sandwiches which tasted very good. Nothing from out of the... More

The setting is second to none, and our room in a 'planter's villa' was perched on the edge of the site and overlooked mountains and tea and cardamom plantations. Crested serpent eagles soared overhead and we felt as if we had borrowed their eyrie for a couple of nights. Windermere is smart and the emphasis is on simplicity: we felt... More

We spent 5 nights at this lovely resort. We had originally planned only 3 nights, but couldn't bring ourselves to leave. It was not only that Munnar and the surrounding area are so unbelievably stunning, but the resort is lovely, relaxing, well maintained and delightful. We had two different rooms, one on the lower part of the grounds, very private,... More

Stayd here as part of our Kerala tour. Food good, staff friendly. Wifi in two locations. Enjoyed the walk through the surrounding area with the young knowledgable guide. Loved having tea in the tea hut every afternoon. The evening of the BBQ was a great way to mix with other guests.

Spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay. Staff were welcoming and attentive - guiding you along the paths at night with torches. Our room was comfortable with and outside seating area- view obscured by tall plants immediately in front. Restaurant with library above have wifi. We loved taking tea in the tea hut.

If you have a pressing need to spend some time among tea plantations this is okay, just. Accommodation is in duplex cottages with verandahs offering spectacular valley views, or at least they would if the ground staff had not allowed foliage to grow so tall as to obscure the view completely. It's miles out of town so unless you have... More

Very nicely situated place amid tea gardens. Spacious and tastefully decorated rooms. There's walking up to the top of the hill and through the wooded cardamon plantation. Excellent food and very good service. Well worth the expense.

The Windermere Estate is a property nestled between Tea, coffee and cardmom plantations. It has 18 cottages spread across the estate. Most of the rooms face the tea gardens, but because of the overgrown folliage, one cant see the tea estates. The cottages are comfortable and decorated in an understated manner. There is no TV in the room. The property... More
