Windermere Estate
Munnar, Kerala
Sitting high on the observatory hill at 1600m above sea level in the picture perfect town of Munnar, Windermere is a charming retreat set amidst a cardamom estate surrounded by tea clad hills and dramatic rainforest where you can unwind and fill your lungs with pure mountain air.The 60-acre property is hallmarked for its exclusiveness and high range hospitality. The presence of the Planter's family next door ensures security and local advice devoid of a hotel atmosphere.

Windermere offers plenty of choice as far as accommodation is concerned. The valley view rooms are set in verdant gardens having a view of the valley below. The cottages set among the vegetation have huge window frames that do justice to the breathtaking mountains beyond. The planter's villa room, set amidst the oaks with a perfect vista of surrounding tea-clad hills, is a 1,100 sq ft area with a private balcony, sitting and dinning.

Cuisine served here is traditional Keralan, Oriental, Continental and family recipes. You can choose to dine at The Barn, a lavish dining area with an old fashioned fire place and wooden pillars, the Boulder Garden, an ideal spot for barbeques and campfire or The Hut built in native Kerala style that serves mouth-watering snacks and sizzlers.
