“one the best resorts visited in a long time in India”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We thank Mr. Fazal (GM) and Mr.Prabhu (Manager facilities ) for making our stay quite pleasant.
The food is excellent and service is great from every body at the resort.
The best part of the resort is it brings family together, as there is no mobile connection or TV

Will come back again.

The Property is excellent. There is a "LIVE AT YOUR OWN RISK" policy as it is in the middle of the forest and there are no fences around the resort. The service is excellent the people are good, the manager Mr. Faizal is very helpful. Mr. Rangarajan was very helpful in the trekking trip. We were completely delighted with the trip.

The food was not that good for us as it was of the localized type but the sweets were spectacular.

Bandipur review

Good place for a 2 day stay. Rooms are comfortable. food was okay. the resort arranges for a safari. Spotted elephants, lots of deers, a leopard, bison, peacocks etc. we were following a tigers footsteps but lost track after some time. The resort manager was very friendly and it was a pleasure dealing with him

We were there for our first anniversary so we wanted something that would make it really special. A forest resort secluded and turned off from the world seemed ideal.

From the moment we entered the resort, we were treated so warmly by the staff. The rooms were very spacious, neat and very well maintained.

The resort is literally inside the forest, as deer and monkeys were everywhere around us. It was a totally different experience.
The food was amazing with a wide variety! The cooks and the restaurant staff have set a new benchmark for us! Special mention of Mr Anthony who was so very attentive to us during our meals!

We were treated with a special cake from the staff when they found out it was our anniversary ( Compliments from the resort).. we found that very sweet.

The resort manager, Mr Faizal was one of the highlights of our trip! He was there everywhere all at once... He made sure our stay was totally comfortable!

Windflower Bandipur truly made our holiday a memorable one! Keep it up and going always!

Room Tip: all rooms are good but choose a suite.

Had chosen the Resort on basis of the reviews I read, and we weren't disappointed at all. When we arrived from Masinagudi (Tamil Nadu) there was an agitation at the Border and we had to walk across the bridge separating the two States! Windflower sent their vehicle to pick us up. The very friendly and attentive staff made sure our stay was very comfortable. Mr. Fazal guided us on the type of safari tours we should take in the forest. Unfortunately, we sighted only several deer (including a sambar), some water birds, wild boar and some domesticated elephants, but no "cats". The meals were extensive and tasty. Overall a very enjoyable stay. Liked the touch of "closer to nature" they created by having no mobiles or TV! They need to have a small library. Will now try Windflower Resorts at other locations.

Room Tip: Go for the Suite Rooms away from the poolside. They are very comfortable and quieter.
