Flawless. Best stay in India.Posted Mar 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
After hopping city to city in India, I was looking for a escape from the noise, pollution, and general chaos. Enter: windermere estate. The room looked over a valley carpeted in tea estates. A naturalist led a trek through the estate each day. Breakfast was sumptuous (who provides a fruit BASKET instead of a fruit cup? These Guys). I basically walked around the estate, breathed in fresh air, read on the lookout point or in the estates library, and got some solace before jumping back into Mumbai. And the best part: dinner. Don't go anywhere else. This is one of the best meals you'll have in India.

Beautiful peaceful placePosted Jan 13, 2014
Pros: Its professionalism, relaxed atmosphere and attention to detail.
This was by some distance the nicest accommodation we stayed in during our 18 days in Kerala. We had a spacious cabin with a bathroom big enough to bathe a medium-sized elephant. It was beautifully-furnished in a very cool, understated way, and immaculately clean. The hotel staff were without exception friendly, courteous and professional. We liked the fact that there were some structured opportunities to mix and mingle, ie the excellent, free, guided walks, and the pre-dinner barbecues. Equally we liked the peace and quiet and the privacy. The reading room above the dining room was an unexpectedly lovely place, with views so distractingly lovely that I don't imagine anyone does much reading.

Nice hotel with a great view to relaxPosted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: I especially liked the eagerness of the staff to make us as comfortable as possible
Cons: Firstly, the power is not stable till the generator is switched on at 6PM. Secondly, provide more options for dinner rather than a set menu

Excellent property and great staffPosted Aug 19, 2013
Pros: Pros – Beautiful surroundings, old world charm, excellent service from staff
Cons: Cons – Lights in the room was a bit dim, the room had brick type flooring and the coating was sticking our legs
Location: Excellent - but a bit way from the main town.
We stayed at Windermere for 2 nights and it was the highlight of our Kerala Trip. The estate is surrounded completely by plantations and is serene and wonderful. The views from the top most point of the resort are absolutely stunning. Most importantly the staff and the service level was exceptional. We were treated like royalty and the restaurant food (though a bit pricey) was just amazing.

A great hotelPosted May 12, 2013
The hotel was excellent. Staff could not have been more helpful. The food was quite limited but very good and as most people seem to only stay a few days it didn't matter. We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend it.
