"This 300 year old Boutique Heritage hotel built in Greco – Roman style, is a superbly restored structure. The property is reminiscent of both the British Raj and the feudal lifestyles of Bengal's Zamindari Landlords. The property has been fully restored to showcase the fabulous past, architecture, opulence and history of this small hamlet of the 24 Paganas; but more than that, it has created the perfect setting from which to assist in the revival of, and showcasing of, the traditional performing arts of Bengal. In addition there is a strong focus on highlighting and supporting the local arts and craft still employed by the surrounding village communities. We want to give the discerning traveler from around India, from overseas as well as local Calcuttans, a truly unique experience and chance to explore, as closely as possible, the tapestry of cultural experiences that we offer, the glory and magnificence of the extraordinary lifestyle that the Zamindars of Bengal would have enjoyed."
