Middle of a Tea Plantation Raising Coffee and Cardamom
on Dec 15, 2019
A small out-of-the-way coffee plantation set among tea plantations in an idyllic setting some ways out of town. Very peaceful with teat tasting, coffee plantation walking tours, etc. Most remarkable was the very high quality of service as they escorted up and down to our Planter's Villa room and brought almost all our meals at no extra charge directly to our room. Very comfortable with great views out across the mountains and plantations. Small on-demand electric water heater was a small drawback that meant you were limited in hot water and had to wait at times. Otherwise rather remote and very peaceful off the busy beaten track down a small narrow and rough road to get to -- but certainly worth the peace and quiet.
Enjoy nature at its best

We three couples stayed three nights. Excellent place to stay with nature- in the midst of tea garden, cinnamon and coffee plantations. Food is too good- with fixed menu ( for lunch - Kerala lunch/sandwich lunch - dinner - mix of various vegetables and bread decided in advance)and freshly cooked. No la carte. However staff is very cooperative to adjust menu to your needs.
Not much activities except nature walk.
However if you like nature - very good. You can enjoy group togetherness.
team do organise some other activities like tea tasting and info session, bar-be-que.
One full day we spent to rest and enjoy togetherness.
Only one irritation- the road from Munnar city to estate is bad.
Wonderful Estate !

I stayed 2 nights at this beautiful hotel. The room was large and clean, with a balcony with a view. The restaurant is excellent, and the staff are all very attentive and could not have been friendlier. There is a complimentary afternoon tea, with different types of tea with an Indian snack. WiFi is good throughout. This is a very well run hotel, and a beautiful place to stay, just outside Munnar.
A gem in Munnar

We spent 2 wonderful nights at Windermere. The accommodation, food and service were all outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the “tea shack” where afternoon tea and a local snack were served...The staff were attentive and friendly. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Great place to stay and John the host and the rest of the staff couldn't have been nicer. The location and grounds are beautiful. The food is very good though no choice for evening meal but this didn't bother us as all very good and Joby the chef checks any dietary requirements in advance.
Plenty of activities in the evening. We had a cookery demonstration and tasting which was superb and an excellent BBQ in an amazing setting.
The guided tour of the grounds was really enjoyable and Daniel our guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
All in all a lovely place to stay.
