If one looks to spend a peaceful weekend away with family from the hustle & bustle free atmosphere of City, "Nirala" at Deulti (near Kolaghat) is an ideal option. It is only one & half hour drive from Kolkata by Bombay Road. Alternatively, plenty of local trains are available rom Howrah Station towards Kharagpur before Kolaghat. You may reach Deulti Station by train within 1hr 15min & from the station it is almost a walking distance. Also ideal for Conference & Picnic
A cozy decent atmosphere with really good & tasty food (veg as well non-veg ) & very helpful staff (here I must mention of Anoop) made my stay (from 31.8 to 2.9.12) memorable.
A beautiful lash green lawn with trees & a clean swimming pool are added attractions. I was able to breathe in a real pollution free atmosphere. I really enjoyed to stroll after dinner at the lawn inside the resort-boundary which is security-guarded.) . Multigym, indoor/outdoor games, swings & merry-go-rounds etc are available
Room-tariffs are quite reasonable (500/- to 2500/-: Double Bed rooms & Suites) according to facilities. Generator is available during power cut, (A/C macines will not be covered by Generator
Another attraction is the house of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee, a must-see place to all Bengalees.
Only one negative point is room cleaning, which was missing during my stay.
But my overall experience is superlative & have decided to go again & again, once I feel bored to stay in the polluted & noisy atmosphere of the city. I am impressed.
