Hats off to Windflower resorts management who have designed such a beautiful resort within Bandipur national forest reserve area. The resort has no boundary walls and the separation is done using the bamboo trees and bushes. During the night time when the lights are switched off, most of the wild animals like deers, rabbits etc can be seen roaming in... More

We took studio room, we were 2 couples with kids. This rooms were equal to staff quarters. first the rooms are located at the corner of the resort which is seriously dangerous. it has rained so lots of flying insects outside our studio. Secondly the rooms have only lock and key unlike villas which have cards. so getting in and... More

I choose Bandipur as a stop gap arrangement before travelling to Ooty as the distance between Mysore and Ooty was difficult to cover without taking a break especially when you are travelling with a kid. Here comes Windflower with an awesome feel in the jungle. This luxurious resort gives you a homely feeling! Rooms: I had booked a small cottage... More

Though its a jungle resort, never really got that feeling during my stay there. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. Unlike other resorts in the vicinity, they don't have any fencing and guests are strictly advised not to go out of the rooms after 10:30pm. They have a good swimming pool which was neat and my kids... More

Located deep within the jungle, this hotel provides luxurious rooms. The rooms are large and very well decorated. The best part of this hotel is - it does not have any boundary wall. As a result, animals like deers and monkeys come right inside the hotel area. We woke up early in the morning to catch a glimpse of deers... More
