After coming out of the heat and bustle of Kochi, this is 8,900 feet into pure Heaven. Kerala is "God's country" for a reason, and the Windermere Estate will help you see that. It's amazing. Verdant and lush are too petty to describe this cross between a jungle and a forest that surround the Estate. Everywhere you look is either... More

Rooms were very spacious and comfortable. We all loved the place. The focus for... More

The Windermere Estate stands out among small hotels in India, especially considering it's not owned by a hotel chain brand. The focus is on providing guests a quiet and truly comfortable getaway in the lap of nature without the usual distractions of big hotels. Not even cable television. Windermere enjoys a beautiful location on one of the highest peaks in... More

This is perfection. A brief summary from arrival to departure, just to whet your appetite: The driver pulls up to the reception desk at the entrance of the estate. Your luggage is carried away to a private suite overlooking a panoramic of the Western Ghats. An attendant walks you around the estate, from the scenic overlook, to the library, to... More

Due to our late booking we could only spent one night at this extremely beautiful place, but it was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to Kerala. We were warmly welcomed and kindly granted an upgrade into the next higher room category. Everyone at Windermere Estate was friendly, cordial, attentive and helpful. The scenary is breathtaking and the... More

I stayed at Windermere for 2 days as part of my Kerala tour package. The property is situated amidst lush greenery. When we reached the reception for checking in, I was pleasantly surprised when they informed me that my room has been upgraded. While I was tired when I reached the hotel, the walk to my cottage was refreshing with... More

After arriving in Munnar from hot and humid Cochin, we cooled off and relaxed on our pleasant balcony while sipping the Kingfisher beer we brought along. Dinner later that evening was delightful: excellent service and lovely food. The next day we were awakened by a host of birds singing. After breakfast we visited the near-by nature reserve (where we saw... More

I cannot recommend staying at Windermere Estate more! The place is unbelievable and absolutely stunning! We spent Christmas 2011 here and it was such an amazing experience! We were told in advance that they do not have a licence to sell alcohol but that we were welcome to bring out own. We took a long a bottle of champagne to... More

This was our second stop on our tour of Kerala. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and given a tour of where everything was and shown to our room. We stayed in a cottage and it was lovely. The room was very large with plenty of space & a lovely balcony. The room was very modern and light. The bed... More
