We arrived at "Monchasha" with a lazy & relaxing weekend in mind.The natural beauty of rural bengal and it's ambiance left us awestruck.The mouthwatering and sumptuous food left us yearning for more.We were completely overwhelmed with the simplicity of the place.The village came across as a very clean and picturesque landscape. We definitely look forward to come back again to bask in the natural beauty of "Monchasha".

Our stay in Mon Chasha over a winter weekend had been very memorable. The place is so close to Kolkata, perfect for a weekend getaway...great place to unwind with friends & family...specially if one likes the feel of a nice warm village.
Hospitality had been superb at Mon Chasha, which made it easier for us with a toddler. The food is amazing, typical authentic Bangali ranna-- gives u a feel of home away from home. The taste of 'goyna bori' still lingers in our taste buds. Having food in 'kanshar' bashon was a unique experience... Our generation hardly had a chance to savour this special experience. So it was great!
The wooden cottages were nice & cosy. Though there were its share of mosquitoes, mosquito nets and coils were promptly placed in our rooms from dusk. So it kind of helped.
The surroundings are pleasant, with lots of activity to keep u busy. There was a pond to practice fishing, there was a dhenki, we took a look around the 'grams' too in a van rickshaw. Then we tried our hands at pottery, and created some clay forms, which remotely resembled any pot/bowl. But it was fun!
In the evening, we arranged for poter gaan, and the idea was worth. Rarely do we get so close to our various regional roots, so i must thank MonChasha for having such facilities on offer.

The cleanliness of bed sheets, pillow covers and quilts has been the only downside in our experience. But those were quickly changed as soon as we raised it.

The place was quite chilly in decembr. So please take enough warm clothes if you are travelling there in dec-jan.

But for every kolkatan, it's a place worth visiting. The cost isn't too high. So you may go for the MonChasha experience at least once, to start with. We came back with nice memories. Thanks MonChasha!!

Monchasa has touched my heart. Serene and peacefull this place gives one the feel of a village. Set amidst greenery, ponds ,vegetable patches and mud huts complete with a dheki your eyes feel soothing and the wind touches the right cord in ur heart. Food is delicious,full on bengali style. I didn't stay over but enjoyed thoroughly the hospitality of this place. Do go there once but yes the approach road will make u doubt this place but believe me do not get intimidated by it.

A great place to relax, have good food and escape city life. The presence of your host Nilanjan & Debjani looking after you adds to its charm. Do walk around the village and see village life. If you don't want to drive from Kolkata, you have the option to take a train to Contai Station and then have the resort pick you up. Be sure to get that book that you have been meaning to read for soo..o long - I promise you will be able to finish it here without any distraction.

Go for cleansing your mind from the daily rat race. Experience rural life in authentic village cottages beside the Bagda river amidst lush green surroundings. Pamper yourself with warm hospitality of the hosts. Enjoy sumptuous meals. Get lost in the village market, around the river, within yourself. An experience of your lifetime.
