“Perfect weekend destination”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The golden Retreat, Haldia has everything that of a 4-star hotel which makes it ideal weekend and business stay. I was surprise to see that the hotel has its own cricket/football & children play area which makes it ideal destination for family stay too. The room size was excellent which superb view of swimming pool area. I somehow realized that the menu lists for India/American/Continental and Chinese food are limited however the quality served was delicious. During our stay, we and other guests were provided the free valet parking by the hotel staff.

The resort is located close to Haldia city center which is bit far from Haldia Marine Derive/Town. Therefore those strictly looking to stay close to haldia river may be disappointed.

Overall the resort was good enough to spend a weekend.

Room Tip: I would advice you to choose a pool facing room.

we went for 2 days, its good for short weekend stay. the overall ambience was good.
we had only veg food and the food was really delicious, it takes around half an hour after u order for the room service but the good food was worth waiting.
i would suggest u not to take the complementary BF, as this BF was not at all good and u will get the same item everyday.

Very nice interiors and well spacious rooms. Food quality is superb. Try any Fish delicasy you will love it. Peaceful surroundings and a full resort.

Room service generally takes some time (20-25 minutes) but the food quality compensates for it. Vegetarian food may not be liked by all but non vegetarian food is superb.

Room Tip: Go for pool facing rooms on top floor/s

I stayed in Golden retreat for 15 days... the ambience is nice, it is built like a majestic palace. I offers indoor games including snooker, biliards, etc. The swimming pool is nicely built but closes at 8 in the evening which is a minus point for, also the lighting in the evening near the pool area is not good. The gym is decent with basic facilities.

The view from the room gives a lush green view which is quite relaxing.

The food is nice and the restraunt offers lot of varities but is bit over-prized for a single traveller.

I used to stay at Golden retreat during my business visits to Haldia. It is clearly the best hotel in Haldia. The ambience is great with neat and tidy rooms and hosiptable staff. It gives a resort-like feel with lush green garden and a pool in the backyard. The restaurant China Garden serves hygenic and tasteful food. The breakfast basket used to be very good. All in all, a great place to stay at, away from the hustle bustle of the city.

Hotel is located ideally close to the Haldia port, which is probably the reason you are in Haldia.
Haldia is abt 3 hrs drive from Calcutta airport. Always hire a cab for return journey as it is not easy to get a cab in haldia.

The hotel is built like a palace, but not maintained like one. The hotel also runs a hotel management institute, hence you will see a lot of young crowd in the hotel specially in the evenings.

If you are a sea food lover, do try the betki and hilsa fish, you will love it.

Hotel also has a swimming pool, and try to get a room facing the pool.

Wifi service is available in the rooms (paid) as well as in the lobby (free).
Room rent includes breakfast, but this rule might change depending on the amount of guests in the hotel.
