“Sundarbans accomodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Stayed here during our last visit to the sundarbans. Food was good, the ambience very nice (perhaps the best), but property needs upgradation and lacks maintenance. the best part was that since we stayed there we had enough time to visit the mangrove Interpretation centre and speak to the forest Department people who were inside.

Two Monitor lizards, a big crocodile were something which scared us while we went outside on a stroll in the evening.

Even though the watchtower was near by, we were not allowed to go there at night. Restrictions imposed on such visit at night.

Would recommend it to those who love nature and can do away with the best of luxuries.

Sajnekhali at Sunderbanks National Park is the place to stay if you are visiting Sunderbans. Setup in a barren Island and middle of the national park, the entire island has no shops, vechicles, people or anything else. Powered with Solar Energy, water brought from Mainland, the only people who stay here are the staff of the Forest Lodge. The rooms are decent..but do not expect luxury. There are no Air Conditioners and electricity is switched off from 9pm in the morning till 4pm in the evening. Meals are served in the lodge itself. Food is included in the package..though ala carte is also available. It is surrounded by dense forest and near the walk track of tigers. So, you can't take late night lesiure walks around. A very good place, if you want to experience living in a forest with basic ameneties. Kids can get bored..so carry plenty of things to keep them busy. Also be wary of monkeys..and never feed them. At night look out for sound of crackers..villagers usually burst them when they spot tigers.

Room Tip: Book early..negotiate your boatman before you leave the mainland. Boat rates for sightseeing from th...
