“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky” Words spoke by the Bard, Rabindranath Tagore and that is what you feel when you stand will mesmerize by the beauty of this lovely Eco Resort in Bolpur, 180 km from Kolkata.
One comes here to seek solitude, peace and share tranquil moments with family and friends.
A home away from home surrounded by green, lush paddy fields. The lovely owners of this resort have opened the doors of their home and always welcome you with warmth and smile. As the morning sun greets you, and a smiling staff brings you a cuppa, the birds break into a song, and somewhere beyond in the midst of the Ilaambazar Forest a wild soul springs into action.
Did u miss it!!
Never mind, satiate your soul with the greenery all around, the surreal ambiance, as the clouds lazily float by and the paddy fields sway with their own music. When the surroundings are so beautiful can the interiors disappoint?
