My expectations from a good vacation are:-
Kid friendly activities
self pampering activities.
The windflower at Vythiri met or exceeded all of the above requirements except the last two. We travelled just before the onset of summer and in middle of the week. one striking observation about the food was that it tasted fresh, compared to the standard fare at Bangalore restaurants, loved it, there was sufficient variety across all courses. The resort is pretty, the rooms well furnished, have functional A/C , Satellite TV and WI-FI. decent pool, scenic backdrop from rooms and restaurant.
now the areas that need improvement.
we insisted on a room on the first floor and was promised, upon arrival they allocated one on a lower floor and only upon insistence reluctantly agreed to provide us one.
The lady at reception didn't have a welcoming demeanour, may be she was having a rough week.
WI-FI access wasn't working, it took me five iterations to get a functional passcode, the front desk wasn't equipped to fix the problems, could have been more pro-active
I was locked out of my room and had called the front desk, who promised to send some one with a key immediately, however it took 90 mins for the person to get the key.
My wife ended up with blisters when she had a facial at the spa, which was priced exorbitantly.
there was a campfire setup, no one informed us about one.
The staff weren't able to articulate directions well, when asked for facilities like Spa and Pool.
Housekeeping wasn't done when asked for.
