Just 3hrs out of Kolkata, nestled on the scenic banks of the river Damodar, this resort is a throwback to the old world charm of travelling for pleasure and relaxation. Once known as the Durgapur Tourist Lodge, it is one of the first and premier tourism properties of the Govt. of West Bengal.
The heritage resort, located in a quaint village Birbhanpur, (which is documented with the A.S.I as a microlithic site) can be a much needed getaway from the daily rigmaroles of life, like unwinding under the Shamiana as birds chirp and play around or watching the sun set in all its glory as you sip your favorite tea. It’s a not – to – be – easily – forgotten experience!
The ambience of the property spells pure pleasure, so does the service. Green sprawling lawns, children play spaces, a pool, organic vegetables and paved walkways embrace you on the outside. Inside, the gourmet dishes in air conditioned multi cuisine restaurants, the services and the smiles of every staff member will make you smile right back.
To retreat, relax, recharge or rejuvenate in the sounds of silence, come and leave your footprints behind, on this rustic riverside trail.
