Windermere Estate


Nestled in the lush forests of the Western Ghats, this delightful property sits in a coffee and cardamom plantation and is ideally located for exploring the town of Munnar as well as the flora and fauna of the wildlife-rich hills. As a small, boutique property, it’s retained the character and charm of the original planters’ bungalow, while adding a pool and a small restaurant. This family-run hotel is a welcoming spot, where home-cooked meals can be served under the shade of a tree, and a daily walk with a naturalist introduces you to the workings of the plantation and the plants and birdlife of the hills.

The 18 rooms are set in five chalet bungalows that straddle the hillside below the main Planters’ bungalow, and each offers a comfortable stay in simple, rustic rooms. Terracotta floors, locally-made wooden furniture and elegant white linens let the views of the lush jungle-clad hills and mist-swathed valleys take centre stage, while private balconies or terraces invite you to enjoy your morning cup of local coffee with a view.
