After the heat and humidity of Kochin, Windemere's higher elevation offers refreshing temperatures, and a nice jumping off point for a day or two spent touring the Munnar Hills / tea plantation region. The food was excellent (the chef shared his recipes), the staff were helpful, and the rock-top sunrise viewing point was a nice start to the day. A... More

A quiet retreat from the world. Set in its beatiful grounds this has a very old British feel to it. We had two stays either side of trekking & the first room (Cottage style) was roomy and lovely. On our return The Windemere kindly upgraded us to a Planters Lodge, which was amazingly large, two bedrooms, dining room, lounge, large... More

well it took me 24 hours to get it. this retreat is up a long bumpy track outside of the un prepossessing town on Munnar. owned by a local Doctor it really is an unusual place. the rooms are very spartan, reminded me of a 1960's boarding school aesthetic. food is taken in a small restaurant and was good but...

Our planters villa was huge at 1000 sq. ft. and truly magnificent. The staff were very helpful and friendly but the food fell well short of expectations. A note of warning to other travellers and the management- the huge number of stairs are very bad and downright dangerous.The staff were very helpful with torches in the dark but the quest... More

The long drive from Cochin to reach this hotel high up the hills near the town of the Munnar was well worth it. Set on a coffee and cardamom plantation the views were amazing although at such an altitude the mornings can be misty. A light sweater would be worth packing as the evenings can certainly be cooler. The food... More

We stayed at Windermere as part of our Kerala trip booked via our UK agent Imagine India who had created us a fantastic itinerary and picked us some amazing accommodation. We had a lovely stay and the setting is very picturesque. The cottage we had overlooked the gardens and was well appointed and comfortable. In the evening the hotel arranged... More

We stayed 2 nights here and while the location was wonderful, unfortunately the continuous banging and hammering from building work nearby our room meant it wasn't the peaceful stay we expected. The room was fine but no fridge in room, and as there was no alcohol served or allowed out of room, meant warm beer or wine! The nature walk... More

We traveled in India for three weeks. After the business of big its this was a welcome retreat. The rooms, facilities, food and service is perfect. I highly recommend Windermere Estates. Free WIFI and free afternoon tea and snacks! The views were breathtaking.

A clean and well-maintained hotel with excellent local food (and a high tea). Great views, and the hotel offers an afternoon guided walk through their plantation of cardamon and other spices. Our room was large but charmless, on the first floor. This may have been a result of our travel agent booking us into a cheaper room. Munnar is an... More

This is a lovely lodge type hotel in the middle of the T plantations of the area. The rooms were very large and comfortable. The hot water was individually controlled in each room and you needed to turn on the heater on for a while beforehand. Our room had a lovely large veranda overlooking the valley. Food was very good... More
