Ten-Second Takeaway

Seven-acres of greenery, modern cottages, a swimming pool and spa – you don’t even need to go as far as the airport, to be free of the cityscape. Windflower Prakruthi, we’re looking straight at you!

In A Nutshell

Formerly just Prakruthi Resorts, the Windflower resort chain has taken over to add some luxe to this already charming space. Great for a quick getaway from the city, a day of relaxation and a spot of pampering or even a luxurious team offsite, this place is quite versatile! Plus, it has a spa.

Don’t Miss This


The heavenly spa, Emerge will cure all aches, pains and city trauma. The Ayurvedic Abhyanga is our personal favourite {I once went early for a flight and zipped in here, just for this!} which uses copious amounts of warm oil and herbs to soothe the body. Second place goes to slightly rough but rejuvenating Coffee Invigoration. For a quickie, try the Head, Neck, Shoulder & Relaxing Back Massage which uses no oil.

Give It A Skip

While we wouldn’t really say avoid this, the indoor games {badminton, snooker and board games} is lower down on our priority list. But that is only because there’s a football and cricket pitch that is far more exciting given that there’s hardly any lung space in town, and there’s nothing like the great outdoors.

On The Bucket List

One of the few resorts to offer Zorbing, ATV and BMX rides though rough terrain and Paintballing {bring on the war cries!}, don’t leave without hitting up their activity centre. Go all out during the day with these fun {and slightly tiring} activities because it really does get the adrenaline pumping. For all those looking for a corporate outing, this fits the bill – team building tactics at its best! Also fun for wedding parties – in-laws versus outlaws! Then, dive straight into the swimming pool to cool off, literally and figuratively.

Stay A Night


If you’re not heading back to town but choose to camp a night, you’ve made a smart decision. What I most like about this place is that it doesn’t pack in too many rooms just to fill up space. That said, there’s a solid 54 rooms that are up for grabs. Standard rooms are just that, but with a plush bed, large screen TV and power showers, you won’t complain. But if you’re ready to splurge a bit, then the villas are beautiful. Rather like your own slice of paradise, because the bedrooms open onto the seemingly unending garden, and the sun filters in through the trees, you’ll have added privacy as they’re a bit further from the main building.

Prices: Day package start at INR 1,400 {inclusive of breakfast, lunch and tea} and massages at INR 1,500.
