Windermere Riverhouse started off as a pet project for family weekends close to Cochin yet with the wonders of the lower Western Ghats close at hand. However, once finished, it took the shape of a small five-bedroom villa styled hotel set amongst two acres of swaying coconut palms. Warm and welcoming local staff assure highly personalised service and their genuine hospitality ensures a memorable stay.
The house is built in the style of a colonial-period plantation home and takes inspiration from tradition Keralan design. The rooms are spacious and airy with furniture made from beautiful local teak and rosewood. During the day you can idle away in the spacious living room with a small library and board games. The outdoor swimming pool that overlooks the river is an idyllic spot to linger any time of the day. On a clear night, the skies twinkle and fireflies lend a romantic and magical atmosphere. The House itself is built on the highest point with the gardens running down to the pool and dining hall which overlook the river.
