The hotel, originally designed as a guest house for friends and acquaintances of the owner family, is located away from Munnar and offers above all tranquility and naturalness. Even at the check-in you one will be received like a friend of the family and accompanied in the deliberately simple but large room. First we thought that it will get difficult...

My fiancé and I visited in April 2017. This was our favorite place to stay whilst on our trip around Kerala. The staff go over and above to ensure that your every need is met. The food menu is set but the food is amazing and there are at least four options. They also have a coffee and tea bar...

We were travel agent and our tour director in Delhi that the Windermere Hotel was “the best in Munnar.” We think they both would do well to send someone to Munnar and look around. There are a lot of nice-looking hotels in Munnar. We checked in to the Windermere and were shown a spartan room that smelled of mildew. The...

We stayed two nights here on our Indian cycling tour and enjoyed the comfortable large room, great setting and quality food. The room was clean, large and very comfortable. The restaurant had good, tasty food and the expansive grounds of the estate were enjoyable for relaxing or wandering and exploring. We took an estate walking tour in the evening that...

This small establishment is part of a neighbouring cardamon estate. There are 18 rooms in buildings spread around the complex. The room we had was large and not modern, but was comfortable with a large bathroom and shower, but no view. The dinners were set menus with limited choice, though the quality was good. The weather is warm during the...

We spent two nights at the Windemere in early March. The fist impression on arriving at the Windemere is one of tranquility and a relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by beautiful vibrant green scenery. We stayed in an estate room which whilst simple was very spacious with bedroom windows giving a lovely aspect of the scenery outdoors. Additionally it had a good...

Lovely accommodation - very tranquil. Great location for visiting nearby tea plantations. Very nice staff. Pool and hammocks. Restaurant with a set menu. Very nice breakfasts! Opportunity to go on a cardamon plantation walk. Lovely flowers. Great climate for escaping the heat of Kochi.

We had booked 3 nights here and ended up staying an additional night as it was just so heavenly relaxing and beautiful at Windermere. There isn't much to do and the wifi is intermittent, slow and is being switched off at 21:30 - so early nights and lots of reading. I did a brilliant hike with stunning views arranged through...

After the hustle and bustle of Cochin our tour took us here for 2 nights and the peace and quiet was lovely. The grounds are well kept and room are very spacious, clean and welcoming. Service is superb as is the food. Complementary afternoon tea and a pool with tea plantation views rounded it off nicely.

From the minute you arrive, it is a delight. The location, the views, the accommodation, the staff - all are brilliant. There is a new pool and plenty of places to relax away from your room. We were blown away by the amazing food. Strongly recommend staying here. All the trip advisor questions are irrelevant to this hotel!

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
