The resort is around 3-3.5 hours from Kolkata. Route is a scary two way "highway" with anything and everything on the road. I do not suggest self driving from Kolkata since the local buses, trucks and cycle rickshaws are very aggressive and will always try to push you out of the road. Above that, drivers are rash.
Stayed at the FFort Suites (just adjacent to the FFort Raicjak)
My views on the FFort Suites property:
Reception: very small reception with limited seating arrangement. Check-in/Check-out was reasonably quick
Landscaping: well done but needs improvements in pockets. Nice walkway and arch in the middle of the property
Rooms: rooms are in form of two story bungalows. two rooms at the GF and two on 1st floor. Rooms are huge equipped with a dining table, sofa bed, a small kitchen with fridge, tea maker and main bedroom with a balcony. There is only 1 bathroom and has 2 doors - one from the outside of the bedroom and the other from inside the bedroom. Make sure that you lock both doors before commencing your business (unless you're on your honeymoon). some antiques also in the room - photos attached
a lot of bungalows are undergoing renovation - so be sure to take a look before you spread out your luggage.
- Swimming pool available at FFort Raichak, quite large and clean
- Pub: just beside the swimming pool with a dance floor (medium size). Most liquor and beer brands available
- Cycles available at a charge (kids and adult sizes)
- restaurants veg and non-veg
- Sports activities: combined tennis and basket ball court, open air badminton, mini football, mini golf.
- Wifi: only at lobby, not in rooms
Food: taste is good, make sure you ask for local cuisine. Breakfast isn't widespread but does the job. Lunch and dinner are either buffet or ala-carte
Staff: good staff
In and around the resort: nothing really, just the banks of Ganga. It's a calm and quiet place, ideal if you dont want noise in your vacation.
