Food is good, service is good. Support staff helpful. Maintenance is poor. Swimming pool not clean however they blamed it on the yellow tiles. Chairs around the pool torn and worn out. The changing room was a disaster (shower doesn't work). Bed sheet was not clean but wasn't changed before we checked in. Upon on our feedback they changed it... More

Just back from a stay at the Widflower resort in Bandipur. As the resort was fully booked we could manage only one night stay. It was a fantastic experience. The resort is within the tiger reserve with no boundary walls so you feel you are in the jungle. The staff are all polite, helpful and attentive. We had a studio... More

We stayed in this resort (two families with kids) during Ramzan long week end between July 27 to July 29th. We had reserved a studio and a suite. Right from the check-in till check-out, the resort management took very good care of our needs. One of our studio was upgraded on second day to suite when we reported issues with... More

The resort is very beautiful and is set perfectly in the wilderness. The suites are very tastefully done up, imparting a very rustic charm to eat. The food and service is exceptional. Extremely tasty and a great variety to sample from. You might want to pack in a few board games to kill time after 10:30 PM as everyone is... More

Windflower was not in my itinerary when I toured South India with my partner. We were just crossing Bandipur and I saw their board and something pulled me towards them. When I reached they had all but one rooms booked. Fate you see! Although, it is pretty expensive but trust me staying inside a National Park draped in luxury cannot... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to a land that’s off the grid and alive at our jungle resort. Trade your ringtone for birdcalls, and keep your eyes open for a real education. The forest has much to teach us, if we only listen. So rise with the sun and a steaming pot of chai, and then hop aboard our jeep for an unforgettable safari through the mist-laden national park. Return to a wholesome, homely buffet spread in our open-air restaurant. Take a dip in the infinity pool, or go sit by the water’s edge at the Mangala reservoir. Warm your feet by the fire or under your soft, duvet covers. And do it all over again, naturally. ... more   less
