“In Bengal auf dem Land”

Wir wollten für 4 Tage die Grossstadt Kalkutta verlassen und etwas Energie auf dem Dorf Tanken. Die Gastfreundschaft und das Essen sind Grossartig. Die Unterkünfte sind aus natürlichen Materialien gebaut und da es nur 4 Zimmer (pro Zimmer max. 4 Personen) hat ist der Resort nicht überfüllt. Die Ausflüge mit dem Rikscha Van wahren sehr interessant und wir haben Lokale Handwerker mit ihren Familien getroffen welche Souvenir aus Bambus und Zuckerrohr Melasse herstellen. Auch die Täglichen Spaziergänge wahren eine Freude.
Die einzigen welche mir nicht gepasst haben Waren:
1) Die Matratzen waren zu hart und bin Täglich Frühs mit Rückenschmerzen aufgewacht (habe aber auch nicht nach einer besseren Matratze gefragt).
2) Die Zimmer haben TV und da die Zimmer aus natürlichem Flechtgewebe gebaut sind hört man dem Nachbar seine Sendung.
Trotz dieser Mengel kann ich den Resort empfehlen.

“A Peaceful Bliss”

It was really a great experience. Perfect for peaceseeker who would love to experience rural Bengal amidst queit nature. Pretty refreshing environment. Quite well maintained. The food was great, delicious and served in an authentic manner. The staffs were extremely friendly and professional. We would like to visit again.

P.s. I read the only negative review here from 2013. I think they improved a lot on cleanliness, support staffs etc. However I would agree that the lighting could be better. We haven’t seen any snake but more lighting could give us full assurance.

“Mon Chasha”

Food are good. Ambiance is also good. Boys are so good and Co operativ. But maintenance is low. No Privacy. In the top of the wall one feet open. In winter cold wind is coming through the holes in the wall. In mid night it is terrible. Car parking is not total cover. Satyajit Kundu.

two days with the beautiful nature of Rural Bengal – Rajib Basu

It was a very nice stay at Monchasha and a beautiful arrangement & hospitality by Mr & Mrs Basu. very nice place for someone who loves nature and want to spend some quality time with family. very good change from our busy life. The place has been developed beautifully with scientific ideas to make it a real eco friendly place. Superb collection of books in the common room for visitors. Lots of toys & other facilities for childrens to play around. Overall it’s a great place for weekend trip and that too only 2-3 Hrs journey from Kolkata.

Only request to visitors, please do not disturb the silence and harmony of nature and the discipline in village life.

The vast lands of rural bengal, covered with unspoiled greenery are spilled everywhere that give you a feeling of unbounded joy. Not only for the treat of eyes, such places taught us something about our past – the rural tradition, the authentic culture – ritual – cuisine – craft and the local style of living.
