A perfect antidote to a few days in Calcutta, the Windflower Resort was a haven of tranquility. Exceptionally good food with a delicious evening buffet; friendly staff, lovely big rooms each with its own terrace (and really comfortable beds); a large swimming pool and a four star spa. Highly recommended - we would definitely stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the WIndflower. Rooms were clean and the staff very professional. It is a short (and romantic) boat ride to a lovely beach. Restaurant was very good with a delicious breakfast buffet. I HIGHLY recommend getting a massage at the spa. A highlight of our trip!!

The only redeeming factor of this hotel is it's location by the beach, which is a five min walk from the hotel. There are some rooms which face the water, and we changed our room after arrival to make sure we got one of those. Apart from this view from the room the rest of the experience is extremely poor....
