We travelled here from Aug 22nd to Aug 24th 2014 and were totally mesmerised by the beauty of the property. The rooms were top class well designed and had awesome views of the mountains! The property is brilliant to walk around and they have setup a high point upon the rocks where you can have a 360 view of Munnar....

After going through the reviews on tripadvisor, I decided to stay here for 2 nights with my family (parents and wife) on holidays in Kerela. After a fairly long time I was holidaying with my parents and I wanted this to be...

We stayed at Windermere estate for two nights in August and had a lovely stay! We stayed in the Cardamom room which was very clean with nice simple decor. Highlights include the (free) tea and snacks every afternoon at 3pm, the tour around the cardamom plantations and the three course set dinner which was delicious! There is free wifi in...

I stayed here with my family, in August 2014. My experience here has been really good. The staff is really courteous, and always assist you with a big smile. Joe guided us through the property very well, and since we arrived late he even re-opened their closed tea shop for us to be served. We were always accompanied by a...

A tea and cardamom estate, Nestled in between the clouds of Munnar, this place will prove to be an excellent break from your lives. It's isolated location, low phone network and having very few cottages in a vast estate gives you a secluded feel. At times, all you can listen to in this estate are crickets. All Cottages open up...

Welcoming and generous staff. Don't miss the complementary walk of the estate. The tea and food are delicious. Munnar is only minutes away. Rooms are spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable. No noise to disturb your sleep. We had a wonderful stay.

You can't ask for a lovelier place to watch the mist roll in and out of the mountains than this. We were in a Plantation bungalow; the viewight be less spectacular from other rooms but ours was sublime. We were there in monsoon season, so didn't have the pleasure of a nature walk or a lie in the hammocks, but...

I had a very memorable stay here in June 2014. Nice property in middle of a cardamom estate and lush green tea estates. Staff is nice and food good. Personal care is given to all guests. Rooms are clean and care is taken to make them comfortable. Beautiful property and I wish to revisit it after some time.

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Windermere Estate is an 18 room plantation retreat surrounded by the cardamom, coffee and tea hills of Munnar. Established as an estate in the 1940s, Windermere recreates the essence of an estate home devoid of a hotel atmosphere with a unique blend of simplicity and luxury wrapped in old world charm. Consciously remaining small and exclusive we invite you to experience heartfelt plantation hospitality, delivered seamlessly and unobtrusively. ... more   less
