This is Raj Bari Raj means Kings Bari in Bengali means Home. So folks this was actually home of a local territory richest man or equivalent of King.
If you want to be in city and a modern structure this is not the place.
It's truly meant for someone who appreciates Heritage , antiques , solace , strictly amidst nature , fresh water pond with ducks and colourful fishes. This place is if you wish to do some soul searching, quite honeymoon , meditation, speaking to each brick of the walls around trying to tell you a story about each day spent by the Rajgharana or the House owners family and it's pass times. Each room echoes of its history.
The bamboo torch lights on tip odd stick with oil dipped cloth burning to create a special effects giving lights to the huge lawn the light to show it was really and the soft modern lifgts to take you in a completely different era.
This is not for shopping freaks or business. This is purely for quite family times where you will want to leave gadgets away, escape the madness of city life and sit by the pond chatting over coffee, selection of tea's, wine or perhaps single malt.
25 rooms are tastefully done by the owners wife Sheena who has an artistic touch with panache. Property is owned by Ajay Rawla who does things out of box. He had to face several obstacles and opposition from all angles as huge challenge to create such a beautiful huge structure into a superb resort keeping it's heritage originality strictly in place.
This is the place where one could celebrate his anniversary birthday or a special gathering very private marriage. Here one can arrange in the garden a musical , dances and or entertainment programmes for a selective audience to compliment any occasion with loved near and dear ones.
Food is served keeping each palate and choices by highly qualified chef's and their assistants.
It's actually a blast from past. Where choker Bali was shot and Aishwarya Rai created history acting in a great movie.
It's only an hours drive from city center of Kolkata.
To me it's 7 star as I am not for modern structure of plush so called hotel buildings.
One is welcomed with village warmth by ladies in local attractive attire putting tilak on each forhead and some fresh flowers not to mention a cheerful welcome drink. Guest's are welcome to create a menu in advance each day with creative chef's.
It's a wow factor destination so.....
Take your chances and go back into 1920's see if you can leave as in the movie Back to Future.

The Rajbari at Bawali is a destination that fuses royalty living of the middle ages with the treatment and healing processes of the ancient times. Spent a quaint evening enjoying the serene ambience by the pool side, the evening arati and a wonder dinner spread of Bengali dishes.

A must visit for a week long getaway for some holistic healing.

Room Tip: Definitely go for the spa treatment
