We stayed at Windemere Estate for two evenings. The quiet and secluded atmosphere was wonderful. Fantastic for nature and birds. Our accommodation was spacious and clean. We enjoyed an afternoon guided tour both days, followed by tea and snacks. The food was excellent and service was very friendly. The television room and library were quiet and comfortable areas to relax.... More

This place is divine- picture perfect nestled in the western ghats, the tea/ cardamom / plantations abound, it will transfer you to a different world. As it's far from the main centres of India it's well developed and under visited. We enjoyed great walks during our stay. The resort is lovely the flowers with their diversity - colour up the...

The approach is rather complicated. Kitchen staff are fairly polite. Food is extremely limited with no choice at all. Although the rooms are spacious, the tariff is too high as the room is quite drab. The cistern of the flush was leaky. No help at the reception at all. They even tend to short change if we don't double check... More

This August, Windermere played the perfect host to what turned out to be 3 beautiful days of my life. We drove from Cochin to Munnar which takes around 4 hours and it is advisable to start early in order to avoid the office and school going traffic. The last 1 hour of the drive is a sensory delight dotted with... More

A friend's parents recommended Windermere to us and we'll always be indebted to this recommendation. We spend two nights and two days here and every moment spent was memorable. On our arrival we were upgraded to a superior room since there was construction work going on in certain parts. We were handed over two large umbrellas and the keys to... More

It was quite by chance we landed in Windmere Estate, Pothencode, Munnar. But we felt like staying there for more days. With very limited number of rooms spread of over in 4 acres within the vast area of a cardamom estate, with a breath taking viewpoint of entire Munnar and more, the property is not fully explored by visitors since...

This accommodation is set in the midst of a coffee and cardamom plantation with the most spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. It is tranquil and ideal for anyone wanting to 'get away from it all'. We were bowled over by the attentiveness of the staff and in particular Mohan who made us feel very special. He took time out...

This is a wonderful and tranquil place to stay in Munnar, - very authentic to its surroundings and not a as many of the other "glitzy" out-of-place hotels in the area. Maximize your stay with these experiences which are offered for free by the estate, and you will discover why this place is such a "secret tip": - Borrow a... More

Recently staying in Windermere Estate, we found this hotel more like a B & B than a hotel in terms of amenities. Service was friendly and welcoming, however in sufficient access to electricity, notwithstanding generators are available. We had cold showers for our two night stay. Food was prepared with love, but compared to other places we tried in Munnar,... More
