10 of us made our way to Bandipur in the hopes of sighting the usual cats, thinking with every trip "this will be our lucky one". Wrong time of the year ofcourse, so we didn't get a tiger/leopard spotting. That however didn't get our spirits down, because the staff at Windflower were so amazingly hospitable that we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

We just completed a 2N/3D trip with a large group(14 Adults, 8 kids). This is a small property and not much to do within resort. Rooms are nice and staff is excellent. One thing which stands out is Mr. Mahesh who is head chef here. With many kids around, we were very demanding. Cooking baby meals, customizing many items on... More

Overall good experience but highly overpriced. No value for money. Staff is amazing though. Spa was average and highly overpriced. Location is good, lot of deers around the property. They gave a complimentary cake for our anniversary, the cake had a horrible finishing .Considering the amount spent for our stay it was not worth at all.

We visited Windflower Resorts for a team offsite in April 2016. Right from checking-in to arranging for safari for 16 people, the staff at the hotel ensured we did not have to worry for a single minute. Situated in the middle of the forest reserve, the property has adapted to the forest environment rather than the other way round. The... More

Amazing place. Great staff and awesome food. I went with my wife to celebrate her birthday. This place is right in the middle of the Bandipur Tiger Reserve. And is home to the Late Mysore Maharaja's brother-in-laws. You might as well spot him roaming with his dogs in the evening. There's no TV or telephone in the room. And you... More

I visited Windflower Bandipur as part of our annual team outing. The resort situated within the Bandipur forest has maintained a nice jungle theme with very minimal concrete structures. There are 25 rooms which are evenly spread out and are very spacious. There are rules laid out by the Bandipur Forest department which the resort strictly adhere to. There is... More

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
