We stayed here for 2 nights.The rooms are very comfortable and most have a veranda which we enjoyed sitting on after having a nice meal in the restaurant each evening. The tea and cardamon plantations surround this property. Walks are available each day.

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!
