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

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted to hear that you had a few wildlife sightings on your visit to The Windflower Tusker Trails, Bandipur. This time of the year is excellent for sightings but the flip side is that the forest looks very barren and brown. We do hope that you will return another time to enjoy the... 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

Stayed here for a 2 day trip to Bandipur with office colleagues. The resort is nice and spread out. Monkeys, deers, cows all roam inside the property giving it a real jungle feel. Families with kids should be a bit cautious. Rooms are large with all the things you may need. Except that there is no mobile signal inside the... More

We did the booking over internet during our Christmas vacation and paid hefty amount but it was worth it. The most amazing part was we had to think to keep ourselves occupied as there was no internet nor phone. It gets challenging but with young kids around you tend to become one!! The food and the varieties were awesome. The... More
