We have been planning to visit The Rajbari Bawali for sometime now. The attraction of the place was major for its beautiful in picture and it's close to Kolkata and ideal for quick visit. So we planned a quick trip for our family with a night stay. The Rajbari team was helpful even before we checked in. It was raining heavily and we called them to let know we will be before time as we started our journey early because of weather. They assured the room will be ready on arrival. Once we are at the property welcomed by a team of courteous smiling faces. Staring from a refreshing welcome drink to an amazing Bengali Zanmindari Thali it's a holistic experience of Rajbari. In the evening we have been accompanied by Gautam one of the very welcoming staff of Rajbari. He walked us through the property and it's story. Made us feel very comfortable taking all our request and suggestions. He ensured we have a perfect musical evening. The breakfast spread was decent but all quality and tasty food was served. Gautam was there in the morning too ensuring we had our needs delivered. I could conclude that the stay was great. But there is more to the story which will tell you how great the team of Rajbari is. On our way back to Kolkata, our cab met an accident involving locals and we were cornered in the car. We were travelling with our 10 year daughter, I was feeling confused on whom to ask help so I called Gautam. Gautam and the Rajbari Manager called police and they came to the rescue, called back to ensure our safety. It shows their commitment to their guest and their willingness to go above and beyond serving their guest. I will be definitely comming back to Rajbari again Thanks Rajbari team to make the stay a memorable one.

A warm welcome, quick check in, excellent Bengali thali for lunch, a nice tour of the large property. The evening prayer at 7pm followed by a very entertaining musical evening in very perfectly designed lights was a hit. Very cozy accommodation.we stay in the Classic (lowest category). The breakfast which was part of the package was a great spread with freshly made omelet and dosas. Overall, a great experience. Really worth a visit. The staff is well trained and extremely courteous.

This was my fourth visit to the property with different family members. I have seen the services deteriorating at every stop. There used to be cultural events in the evening, but from the last two visits, we were deprived of the same event on Sunday evening. The reason was that we don’t have good occupancy. My point is that the people staying have paid the same amount of money without entertainment. When we don’t have any facilities in the rooms like:- 1) No television 2) No WI FI in the hotel 3) weak mobile network ( no proper calls or mobile Internet) 4) no fridge in the room. In short, nothing to do inside or outside the room. After paying on an average Rs. 10000/- for a room. Secondly, the dishes and quantities have been reduced in the thali for lunch. Limited items with the whopping rate of Rs. 1300/- + tax for a veg thali and 1500+ tariff for a non-veg thali in West Bengal means Super expensive. It’s heartening to pay for every extra bottle of water you ask for in the room. * I hope you understand when there’s no exhaust fan in the washrooms, and the Room is packed. So to summarise if you have extra money and see the newly built heritage I can Recommend this property.

Graciousness, hospitality, kindness & love sums up our 3 nights at this 35 room renovated Rajbari of Bawali. If you want to stay in their royal suite, the suggestion we got was to choose room 224 or the Stewart suite which apparently has fabulous view. We choose their ground floor royal suite which unfortunately does not have any balcony or view given the design of the rooms of the mansion. But the rooms & bathroom are very spacious and extra cost will be provided which I must say was very comfortable. Room service is available till 10.30 pm and their lunch comprises of the sumptuous zamindari thali or for not so voracious eater you can order ala carte items of the thali. None of the rooms except the Dak bunglow has TV which suited us just fine. Its important to soak up the feel of the place & the solitude away from everyday reality. Internet & phone connections are patchy specially if you have Airtel. However, dongles can be provided for your wifi. The Rajbari does not have elevators so please be prepared to climb stairs & wear sensible shoes given the rainy weather. Our personal butler was Gautam and we are at a loss to describe how wonderful a person he was. His service, kindness and the way he took care of our every small details is just brilliant. He curated special menu items, designed and planned a lovely farewell candlelit dinner at the ante room next to the main dining hall. Chef Mondal & him even prepared my favourite malpua specially for the occassion. The F&B staffs comprising of Priya, Nibedita, Gautam, housekeeping led by Samaresh & our conceirge Shibu were fabulous as were the security staffs & the beautiful gate girls. We would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to resident manager Ms. Mrinalini Majumdar for inviting us to one of their team member's birthday and to Ms. Maitreyee at FO for sharing lovely titbits about the place & shooting experiences. Food is to die for and you will end up putting weight here. Don't think of dieting but enjoy the culinary experience. Durga Puja happens at the resort and idol was in the process of being given final touches. The place is booked during this time months in advance. We look forward to our next visit.

Such a feel of peace and tranquility right from the welcome throughout the duration of the stay. In particular Id like to mention of the food at the place, which was truly a delight. We are vegetarians so did not carried a great deal of expectations since we assumed the typical bengali cuisine is more popular amongst non-vegeterians. But our main-course comprising of simple Indian vegetarian dishes was beyond what we expected in taste. We definetely recommend this place to all those wishing a 1 or 2 day break as surely you will experience the grandeur of Indian tradition and get a feel of old Indian heritage. Its a one of its kind experience.
