Surrounded by a 60 acre cardamom plantation, Windermere Estate is a family-run business with a very friendly and laid back atmosphere. Accommodation is in garden rooms, rustic cottages and spacious villas, most of which enjoy fabulous views of the steep sided tea estates and the cardamom hill.

Windermere Estate offers traditional Malayali, Oriental and continental cuisine. The main dining area is a spacious barn, with wooden pillars and beams and an open fireplace. Barbecues are sometimes organised around the camp fire. Snacks are available from The Hut. No alcohol is served is served here, but guests can buy their own and enjoy it in their rooms. There is a library located above The Barn with a range of books for guests to enjoy.

This is great walking country and the hotel can arrange tours of the cardamom plantations which are rich with flora and fauna.

Client Rating for India 5/5 from 130 reviews

We stayed 3 nights here and could have stayed longer as it was so peaceful. The rooms were more basic than other hotels we stayed in but this was more than compensated for by the location and views overlooking the tea plantations and the food and service was exceptional.
