After having stayed at windflower coorg , mysore and pondicherry choosing vythiri windflower was not a difficult decision. Drive from palakkad was great. We found the resort location good...beyond harrisons tea estate. The broken road added to the adventure spirit. We were received promptly at the reception. The towel could have been scented and moist...like coorg. We wete escorted to the villa in a buggy by mr.mahesh....whom we found out later was the go to man for every thing in the resort. Rooms were great..well laid out. Both living room and bed room very spacious. Television in both areas. Balcony was large and to top it all had a jacuzzi which could accomodate a family of 4. A bamboo roller curtain on one side would have been very welcome....would have provided total privacy to family using jacuzzi. Most of the complaints stem from the usage of jacuzzi. ....getting it cleaned and filled daily is a big ordeal. ..multiple phone calls, most of the times no warm water b cos they use solar power...Doesn't work in morning and evenings or when its raining. ( I stayed at peak summer ). Would have been better if we could fill it by a flick of a switch. One of the most depressing aspect of sitting in balcony was the smell .....more in the morning 6 to 9 o clock.??? septic tank gases. Once exposed to it your whole mood for the day is gone.
Play zone is ok. Temporary set up for x box available at request. Evening party games entertaining.
Restaurant ambience is good...staff attentive....food repetitive with minor face lifts. First time at a resort I found food not up to the standards (comparable to similar resorts)
The family photo with the thank you mail at the end of stay was touching...thanks.
All concerns raised are correctable..so hopefully next time we can give the resort 5 stars.
