The Windermere Estate Plantation & Retreat is set amongst 55-acres of cardamom and coffee plantations interspersed with incredibly green patches of rainforest.
The whole region of Munnar is characterised by rolling hills featuring tea plantations and the viridescent Western Ghats rainforest. With cooler temperatures and light breezes across this region, it’s truly a place to escape the incredible cities of India and dive into the country's nature instead.
Rightfully a retreat by name, the Windermere Estate Plantation and Retreat offers guests rest, relaxation and a chance to live the slower pace of Munnar.
Sip a cup of locally sourced tea or coffee on the private verandas, taste some of the local cuisine and the Barn restaurant, or relax in the library or a garden hammock.
Every evening a staff member will guide guests around the estate on a plantation walk, with native trees, birds and butterflies to be spotted along the way.
Listen to knowledge about the local species of flora and fauna, and be entertained by local folklore connected to the biodiversity in the region. Hike up to the viewpoint, perched on a rock in the middle of the property to see the sunrise or sunset over the green hills of Munnar. Wander through the estate gardens to the Boulder, a giant rock estimated to be a few million years old, with an overhang to shade the seating area next to it.
Windermere Estate Plantation and Retreat is the ideal place to shake off the hectic and busy cities and refresh your spirit through nature.
