This gem of a resort is an enchanting world of it’s own making: Bali in Bengal. From the moment you arrive at the reception lounge, you’ll notice the Balinese influence in the understated luxury and zen architecture. Enjoy your welcome drink sitting under stunning antique golden chandeliers, collected from that paradise island. Such tasteful Southeast Asian treasures are sprinkled everywhere throughout the resort.
But the showstopper is the property itself. With fourteen acres of rolling hills and valleys, paddy fields, ponds, streams and thousands of woodland trees -- here you find the natural beauty that Bengali poets sing about. The fresh air is permeated with the fragrance of the foliage. Soothing music is piped in along all the lantern-lit pathways. As you ride the golf-cart to your room, taking in the scents and sounds, you can feel the tension drain from your body.
The charming villas are nestled right into the hilly landscape, and feature thatched roofs, stylish furnishings, and a rainshower or jacuzzi tub in the fancy bathrooms. The balconies come with quite a romantic view, overlooking woods, a stream, and a real tea plantation. The gorgeous, ultra-luxurious private villas even have their own swimming pools.
The beds are heavenly, so sleep in and order room service for breakfast, which comes with a generous bread basket. The restaurants serve delicious Indian and Bangladeshi food in a beautiful setting, including the can’t-miss local specialty, shatkora beef curry. The continental grill dishes are well-worth the splurge, as are the fantastic cocktails.
At the heart of the property is the expansive pool complex, tucked within a valley to make it feel like its own little world. It is open from 8am-10pm, so you can enjoy swimming, lounging, drinking, and jacuzzi soaking in all day and night.
There are many other entertainments, including a plush cinema hall, billiards room, and a delightful children’s play area. Local excursions include a rainforest hike, waterfalls, local villages and boat rides.
If you are not 100% relaxed by now, visit the world-class spa villa, a beautiful oasis-within-an-oasis, where the expert team of Thai masseuses await to work their magic. Enjoy every rejuvenating minute, before you must return to the real world.
