Windermere Estate

Windermere has been hallmarked for its personalized service and the stunning setting, was set as a guest facility for the plantation with just 5 rooms in 1997, and over the years we have added more rooms and facilities at the property, although we still retain our old theme of being a plantation & retreat.


We are a cardamom & coffee plantation of 60 acres, it is where the manicured tea garden merge with the lush green forest of the Western Ghats. The retreat ( guest facility) is on a hillock, over looking the tea garden. You drive in through tea plantation to enter the retreat, and the general landscape of the land is with lots of greenery, flowers and natural rock formations, and on Atop of one of those boulders (the highest point in the plantation) is a private view point, which gives a good 360 degree view of the surrounding hills, it is an ideal place in the property to see the sun rise and set.
