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

It's one of the best places to stay in Munnar, away from the tourist crowd, in the middle of a huge cardamom plantation. The staff is extremely warm and will attend to event minute need that you might have. Food is delicious, and the rooms are comfortable, upper floor has great views too! Beautiful place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate!... More

Stayed here 2 nights with my family on a Holiday. Overall it was a Great experience to stay in the beautiful, boutique Hotel. The Best thing is that it's a small place with 18 or so rooms, so you get personal service and lots of quiet and peace. The cottages are sparsely done, but warm and offer great views. The... More
