Nice getaway for a night. Its in the middle of the jungle. Nice chirping of birds, deer strolling around. The bar menu is reasonably priced and the food spread is good. The price however is on the higher side overall. The bathroom is uniquely designed and the staff is very very friendly.

Writing this review a little late, but still worthwhile to share the experience. We stayed here for couple of nights in late February, we were upgraded to a suite. On arrival, we had a pleasant checkin experience with welcome drinks, staff was extremely friendly. Food was good, nothing to complain when you are in the middle of the jungle. Since... More

We enjoyed our stay here especially on day one (Friday) because it was almost empty and therefore peaceful and quiet. We had the pool to ourselves. On day two (saturday) there were some very noisy people who spoiled it but thankfully our suite room was on the edge of the complex and away from them. We were unable to go... More

If you want to stay away from urban noisy crowded herd then Windflower Resort, Bandipur is the place to be! Not even phone calls will disturb you as there is no connectivity at all. Its a b'ful resort that is designed in an organic way. It gives a deserted look that adds to its beauty. please plan for 2-3 days... More

Food was good and play area was ok. Swimming pool is great.Studio room... More

Pros: Inside Bandipur forest range Easy access to Bandipur and Mudumalai sides Decent food for more than just survival(I am no foodie) Comfortable clean suite Massage in spa was done well I liked the not so big pool with max depth of just about 5.5 ft because of the exotic insects I found swimming along (I like insects) No TV...

We celebrated my mum's bday with a family holiday at Bandipur. We had taken three cottages (studios) for the weekend. It's located about 5 hours from Bangalore and close to the jungle. Hence guests are advised to not step out of their rooms between 10 pm and 6 am to avoid close encounters with animals. During the day, monkey troops... More

Hi, I visited Windflower Bandipur last weekend alongwith my husband and another couple friend of ours. The resort was in mid of the jungle without having any boundaries which sound a little adventurous. You also get to see deer hovering around in the premises. Monkeys pay a regular visit. You could see some cows moving around in the morning. You... More

We had a great stay in WIndflower resorts Bandipur. We had been there few years back when it was not yet taken over by Windflower group and did notice that few changes in Food spread and pool have made this a highly priced resort. However, considering the location and the going market rate, this is perhaps acceptable. Positives: -Great staff... More

We recently visited this place and had very good experience in the resort. Very well maintained, good timely response by staff, food was tasty, rooms are well ventilated. Deer, monkeys, mangoose, colourful chirping birds around makes the stay even more relaxing and cozy. Overall a good option to stay to get rid of the stress in city life ..

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
