Nestled in the tea plantations this simple hotel has the most lovely staff and excellent food. A haven of peace after the noise and bustle of Fort Kochi. Wonderful fauna and constant singing from the birds adds to the happy experience.

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

Trainers are fine - as are walking/hiking/trekking shoes. You need a back to the footwear, and soles that won't slip. Not flip-flops or open back sandals or mules! If you have a walking stick, take it with you!
