Windermere Estate is where manicured tea gardens merge with the lush green forests of western ghats. Hallmarked for its exclusiveness and high range hospitality, Windermere is a 60 acre Cardamom Plantation. The presence of the Planter's family next door ensures security and local advice devoid of a hotel atmosphere. Stay in rooms set in verdant gardens with a lavish veranda and typical plantation home interior having a view of the Chithirapuram valley below. Cuisine is traditional Malayali, Oriental, continental and family recipes.
