This is a wonderful eco resort in the heart of the reserve area. One of the only 3 actually. The approach road is more than acceptable and the sings leading to the property are clear. The property itself expansive, rustic and encapsulates the forest ambiance completely. The rooms are spacious, well equipped , clear and airy. As an added bonus,...

Coming down from the cool green hills of Ooty, the hot dry plains of the forest Reserve at Bandipur was quite a contrast . On first sight the Wndflower Resort where we were booked in seemed rather plain and rustic ...it seemed to match the sparseness of the landscape outside it. We later understood that the intention was to keep...

A calm and serene place, simple resort, very well maintained, excellent food, good service and courteous staff. Only hitch we had was they couldn't arrange safari for the morning slot. There is no advance booking also for this. Morning bird walk was a good experience, very few birds to watch though. March is a dry time though, all the trees...

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
