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

Tusker Trail is a nice place to stay. We were lucky to be able to spend 2 nights there and go on 2 safaris. We could not spot tigers unfortunately but it was a nice experience. The lodge is pleasant, decently clean and the surrounds are wonderful. The staff is outstanding, nice and so incredibly attentive that they are a... More

We choose to stay at Windflower considering the property in Vythiri we stayed at. Windflower Bandipur was a complete and utter disappointment for me. The rooms bore a musty odour, however i must mention that the rooms looked quite good in person. The pictures on the website of the resort and public areas are not how the place looks at... More

We spent the weekend at Windflower, and it was amazing. Brilliant rooms, staff, and food. It's in the middle of the jungle, and you're definitely going to forget the city for a few days, especially since there is no cell phone network. We cannot wait to go back!

We stayed at the windflower resort and spa for 2 nights (3 days) on a monsoon package from 20th June to 22nd June 2014. The resort is well situated and blends right into the jungle wilderness. We stayed in the suite room. The room was very spacious with high wood ceiling and jungle cabin feel. Open sky shower and great... 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
