Windermere Estate, Munnar



Windermere Estate, is where the manicured tea gardens merge with the lush green forests of western ghats. Hallmarked for its exclusiveness and high range hospitality, Windermere is a 60 acre Cardamom Plantation. The presence of the Planter's family next door ensures security and local advice devoid of a hotel atmosphere.




Munnar, the abode of environmental purity is situated at the confluence of three mountain streams - Mudrapuzha, Nallathani and Kundala in the Western Ghats. Sitting high on the observatory hill at 1600m above sea level, this charming retreat is 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.



Cottages: Six exquisite rooms owing their names to the vegetation around (Cardamom, Coffee and Vanilla ). The cottages are large having an area of 600 square feet each. Even the king sized beds, the huge bathroom and heavy furniture leave enough space to swing a few hats. The huge window frames do justice to the picture perfect mountains beyond.





















Planter's Villa Room: Set amidst the oaks with a perfect vista of surrounding tea-clad

hills of the Western Ghats. Each villa being 1,100 sq ft of wood with a private balcony, sitting & dinning, amd a bathroom which opens into a courtyard still leaves you with an enormity of space. Massive, rustic & cozy furniture makes it a synonym of 'Comfort'. The large French windows, only a barrier between you & the birds actually facilitates your link with the landscape.







Garden Rooms: These are four rooms set in verdant gardens with a lavish veranda and typical plantation home interior having a view of the Chithirapuram valley below.
