Best resort in Munnar
Had an amazing experience at this resort which in middle of an estate. The greenery outside the room is breathtaking and the stay brought us very close to the nature. The rooms are very large and the architecture is brilliant, the woodwork inside the room is great which is a mix of western + Indian culture. The dinner and breakfast we had at the resort was amazing, the service was great especially by Tony. Will definitely recommend this resort for those who love to have a break from routine concrete jungle.

Relaxing Stay on Wonderful Estate
Absolutely wonderful stay in a beautiful, stunning location. The room was spacious and comfortable, the trek through the cardamom plantation was interesting and gorgeous, and all of the food (including the afternoon tea) was delicious. We only stayed one night but didn’t want to leave quickly, so the staff graciously gave us a spare empty room to use on our check out day after we checked out of our original room. We had a wonderful stay and would 100% recommend it (if you can stomach the drive in!).

Munnar getaway
This is a great location for people wanting to somewhere relaxing whilst having things to do and see. It is also a great location to explore the local area by bicycle, although you will need your own bike. Staff and owner were all very friendly and welcoming and accommodating of a request to change a night to their other hotel, Windermere RiverHouse which is amazing too. Food was also excellent.

Feel the Munnar with Windermere....!
Well, What should i say ? :) The whole experience was "Awesome, Cherishing & Everlasting in our memories" if i should summarize in one sentence. Me and my cousin were looking for a honeymoon destination in munnar and were searching for our destinations. We contacted many hotels, enquired the details and facilities and finalised it to final 3. Then the only obstacle to decide the final 1 is up-to each one's taste. Well, we prioritised our destination to be nature friendly, more in scenic spot, Classic and typical-hand-architected cottages, good hospitality and calm & serene atmosphere, but still with latest techs., everywhere around. And if u are a person of our taste, there we don't have to do a double thinking; I strongly suggest "WINDERMERE ESTATE" for you. The location was made little exclusive, so you won't find any sign boards to this resort; - rely on your google map for this; The check-in, familiarisation and introduction to cottage/room amenities etc were good and descent. We stayed there for 3 days and i found it to be one of the best cherishing and lasting good memories in my life (especially if u are a honeymooner :D ). They won't confuse you with their food choices as it the menu is fixed. But u don't have to worry as the food is prepared with utmost care and designed to your taste. And finally i would say we would like to re-visit the resort some time later as a reminiscence of some good old days, when u turn back pages.

Know its history to really 'get' this unique place
Close to Munnar yet perched high above this slightly scrappy town gives this historical place a lofty view of the verdant valleys. The staff are very helpful and friendly on all levels. We felt it very important to know this place's unique history to really understand what the owners are trying to achieve. Its still a working coffee and cardommon plantation which makes the site feel very real and genuine. The coffee (naturally) is good as well as the food freshly prepared and locally sourced. I notice previous negative comment on the furniture, decor and building design but this is all part of its character and heritage.

A lovely peaceful property in the hills
A very warm welcome and superb, friendly service. Nothing was too much trouble and the food was superb. We really appreciated our room upgrade too-a lovely surprise when we arrived! Many thanks to all staff at Windermere for making our stay so enjoyable.

Tranquility itself!
We stayed in one of the Planter's cottages - it was wonderful. Peaceful, comfortable and amazing views. The food in the dining room was second to none, we wish we had stayed longer!!!

Flawless. Best stay in India.
After hopping city to city in India, I was looking for a escape from the noise, pollution, and general chaos. Enter: windermere estate. The room looked over a valley carpeted in tea estates. A naturalist led a trek through the estate each day. Breakfast was sumptuous (who provides a fruit BASKET instead of a fruit cup? These Guys). I basically walked around the estate, breathed in fresh air, read on the lookout point or in the estates library, and got some solace before jumping back into Mumbai. And the best part: dinner. Don't go anywhere else. This is one of the best meals you'll have in India.
