We arrived to a cozy porch, overlooking a peaceful green garden, and greeted with conversation and snacks by the hostess, Nayana.

The room itself is clean and comfortable, tastefully decorated. Indeed, the house is a living gallery.

The hospitality was second to none. Nayana went out of her way to ensure our stay met our expectations, arranging a well-paced programme to imbibe the spirit of Santinikaten - not to mention the delicious, fresh and healthy home cooked (by a neighbour) meals.

Highly recommended

Walk up to the house and you will already get the impression of a house designed with a lot of thought in mind. The shape allows for more of a cooling breeze on hot monsoon days. Set in a lush garden on the green edge of Santiniketan, Nayana and her friendly dog will welcome you to your retreat.
Carefully decorated with paintings and period pictures you will find three bedrooms, two on the ground floor, one on the first floor. Porch in front and back are inviting places for your coffee, tea or byo sun-downer. Next morning an eggcellent breakfast awaits you.
Nayana knows everyone and everything in town and beyond, so you are all set for a wonderful stay !

A wonderful experience we had during our two day stay at Nayana’s homestay in Shantiniketan. An abode of peace and tranquility, with a sprawling garden embellished with typical Bengali trees as well as beautiful roses, the morrum pathway leads to a real’home’. Decorated with ethnic objets d’art from all over India and abroad, the sitting room is really a comfort- zone.. Two bedrooms on each side are very cosy and offer a real test of local charm with glazed potteries improvised lamps and beautiful rugs. The toilet is well equipped with modern amenities. But the charm is the hospitality of the hostess.After entering the house one can enjoy the liberty to shrug off all stresses and anxieties as everything is being taken care off by Nayana herself.With mouth watering foods and beverages and sumptuous brake-fast, it is really a serine abode and best place to enjoy Tagore’s dream- child.

Nayana's homestay was a revelation that unpeeled in layers, taking its time, a refuge from the dust and crowd, its warm, cosy interiors clean, eclectic, and fulsome. The home cooked food provided by Borgi da and the excellent breakfast by Maku cushioned our stay at Chhota Kothi, providing comfort food that was light on the stomach.

The itinerary that Nayana di planned for us to the terracotta temples and the zamindari past of Birbhum was an invigorating experience, an eye-opener that we would love to revisit.
The late-night chats, sitting curled up in her cosy drawing room by lamplight was just what my jaded, exhausted mind required. We couldn’t have asked for a better getaway than this to unwind, find our mojo again and rejuvenate.

We felt safe, cared for, and nourished, truly a holiday to remember and yearn for again.
