Nice Manager at Property, Very good details about forest and resort were explained on arrival, good short trek to neighbouring village, Most resort's in Bandipur not able to book JLR safari, if you prefer JLR safari you need to stay with Jungle Lodge resort.Food had good choice.

Very nice place in the middle of nature. The rooms are lovely with a quaint, old world look. Loved the little patio at the back of the room, in the morning we had a deer come visiting right across the clearing. Can see spotted deer around the property at night and walking on the path along the property early morning.... More

Very nice place to spend time with family. It good for kids as well. The accommodation is amazing and very spacious. Excellent food and very dedicated staff. Safari they arrange is must try. Take the evening one if possible. Would recommend this place for a good weekend break.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Windflower Resort & Spa Bandipur welcomes you to a land that's off the grid and nurtured by nature 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 connect with the jungle with an unforgettable safari done by the jungle authorities 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, RE-EMERGE with our Spa or go sit by the water's edge at the Mangala reservoir. Warm your feet by the fire or under our soft, duvet covers. And do it all over again, naturally. ... more   less
