Very nice interiors, excellent suite room (where we were staying), view was fantastic facing Mt. Kuruvan and open sky. Very warm and helpful staff and good cook. It is very well managed by Mini Pereira who really filled the place with warmth, positive and inspirational thoughts, and awesome place. She kept our son nicely engaged and gave us the best service. She and her staff kept us as comfortable as possible. I would describe the place as a luxurious homestay rather than a hotel. Probably daily cleaning of the rooms and the bins would help those who stay for longer duration.
Advice for travel: It is some 5-6 hours from Kochi and 2 hours from Thekkady. It is advisable to stay at Kochi on your day of arrival and start for Windhaven the next day, for that way you will be fresh and have spare time left for some activity like trekking to Mt Kuruvan or Ramakoti.
It is a place for those who want to just relax and take out time to enjoy nature. Surely not meant for one night stays at all. We stayed there for 3 days and leisurely covered the windmill farms(~5 kms), Mt. Kuruvan (can be trekked up or reached by car) and Ramakoti Rock. Trip to Periyar was not that fruitful if have to catch the first boat ride that starts at 7:00 am. Best is to stay in Thekkady which has lot of homestays and hotels of variable range.
Overall, we had a memorable stay in Wind Haven and really wish Mini Pereira best wishes for all her future endeavors.
