Windflower has the reputation to be one of the exotic expensive options. This place in Bandipur lives upto its expectations ... but not in all departments. Happy about: - Nice location(right in the heart of nature), friendly staff, well maintained cottages, awesome food(comparing with other resorts in vicinity), well designed resort layout, peaceful environment. Can be improved: - Slightly overpriced,... More

After staying at Windflower Mysore, we had towards Windflower Bandipur. First the drive to Bandipur from Mysore was not a cruise as the road condition was not great. Also the roads are too narrow. After 2 hrs of drive from Mysore, we reached the resort well past 1 pm. The resort looks an extended forest property with NO boundaries to... More

Easily accessible location in Jungle but still the location is such that it gives you feeling of seclusion...much needed, to unwind. The rooms are kept devoid of TV,Mobile phone network,Landline, may be Purposely and surely they cut you off, for better, from your daily routine connections..Rooms are very spacious,Especialy the Bathrooms.Ambience is very Relaxing.Bathroom is beutifully designed...its rejuvinating.

Awesome location. Don't expect any resort kind of ambience. This is a jungle. Go only if u r a nature loving person. Food was just awesome. Rooms at far end of resort vl b better, as these has sit outs facing the forest.

hey even gave my little one a complimentary head massage! Overall, I find the staff at this resort to be a fantastic bunch of friendly folks striving to make you feel comfortable among the wilderness. At the end of the day, it hardly matters how many "sightings" you get or how dry or wet the jungle was. What really matters... More

First visit to a windflower property and I would say we were quite satisfied with the hospitality extended. This was a very lucky trip for us since we got to see a tiger, 2 leopards and a sloth bear within 2 days. The property however had a barren look because of the season (we visited in Feb) but we were... More

A second visit, and once again I was floored by the hospitality of Windflower! Mr. Fazal, the general manager, was just as friendly and energetic as I had found him back in the November of 2011. Its common to see him going around looking after the resort arrangements meticulously throughout the day. The moment he learnt that I planned to... More

Having stayed in Windflower Vythiri and Pondicherry last year we opted for Windflower in Bandipur. You have to take left turn from Bandipur Safari Booking Counters and go inside. The amenities were good but in February end the trees were leafless and the place appeared barren and secluded.The problem is when it is lush and green you can not spot... More

We visited with a group of friends and stayed pretty much indoors except for a jungle trek and a jungle safari. The resort is quite secluded and far away from any other attractions (except the Bandipur Tiger reserve). Also the hotel doesn't offer any spectacular views so u r pretty much stuck. Food was good and above average. There's a... More
