“To repair our soul with a comforting repose”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Escape from the city into the serenity of Ganges. A nice weekend getaway from the Kolkata city. Beside Ganges does not mean you are going to a beach. Just enjoy the view from there and nice ambiance of the resort. They arranged Treasure Hunt for our group, which was quiet exciting and everyone enjoyed a lot. We did swimming and played cricket & table tennis.

The resort had been constructed to resemble some old fort and is the unique aspect of this resort.
The resort does not have direct access to the Ganges. We did not get to go to the river side. The boat ride was not offered as we were not a sizeable number of people that day..
The Indian food buffet option was good, but the menu repeated on alternate days.
the Billing process wad am issue with double and triple charges for internet usage..this was resolved after some discussions.
The sonar restaurant a hop away had some great Bengali food in a traditional setting..

Ffort Hiliday Klub, Ffort Radisson, Ganga Sagar, Ffort Suits...all are within one larger campus. It is indeed a huge project for tourists, especially while you compare other holiday properties in India.
It is well maintained, asthetic place. Good architecture. They have many many small play-gardens, activities, pools, variety food, and also a temple!
Area is so big that either you take a golf-car (battery driven electric car facility by the hotel) or hire a bicycle to commute often from one activity to another. But is is surely a pleasent ride.
Within walls, it is excellent. There is nothing to step out, except GangaSagar.
A week long holiday may be boring here. Upto 4 days it gives a nice pleasure.

Room Tip: There is no activity for children below 5 years. Rooms are equally good verywhere.

If you are looking for a nice weekend trip away from hustle and bustle of Kolkata, this is a place to be. I visited here in mid July
The drive to Raichak is not very comfortable. But, once you reach there you will forget all the trouble you might have had . The atmosphere out there is very soothing, serene and peaceful.

The view from the balcony of(the river flowing) is a treat to the eyes. The river cruise was closed(for maintenance) on the day i visited, but i have heard that it is very good. Service is prompt.
Ananya spa is also very good.The swimming pool at Ganga Kutir is a nice one. Worth a dip.
Though Food in the Reflections restaurant is very good, but it is highly priced. Apart from this one can try paddle boating and few games(in the game centre)
Recommended for a short weekend trip.

Room Tip: Room facing the river

Ganga Kutir in Fort Raichak on the Ganges is one of the best hideaway on the magnificient Ganges. Only such a place can match the mighty river. Fort Riachak had the most amazing spa. The restaurant had the most wonderful selection of food. One can float on the ganges just by sitting in the balcony and looking out. You must visit this wonderful oasis of joy if you ever come to the city of joy.

A place not far from the city where I love going back to simply because its so close to nature and yet provides all the comforts one can ask for. The staff are friendly,the food is excellent and the place is maintained to perfection. Just sitting in the room and staring out at nature can help you pass your time. It is excellent to soothe frazzled nerves and come back rejuvenated. Only one wishes the condition of NH117 would be a little better!!

Room Tip: The upper floors always give a better view of the river

An excellent place to get away for a couple of nights. 2 hours drive from Kolkata (Calcutta).
The road from Kolkata to Raichak is not that good and rather narrow, so don't expect to have a great drive. However, once you enter the compound, it's class. Surrounded by nature.The view from the rooms is beautiful, especially early in the morning. Food is good but expensive.

Overall, rather expensive for the common middle class .... so mind your pocket :)
