The hospitality here is more than pathetic. We got disposable cutlery instead of steel spoons and forks. The bowls and plates we recieved were all different shapes and sizes. Glasses we recieved were cheap disposable ones. The sheets on beds were torn. There are cockroaches in bathroom ,we just checked in today. The cart shuttle service is poor. We ordered food for babies , and were told that can’t be done. The television in room is not fixed properly. Rooms smell old n bad. Not at all worth the price and efforts..!

Visited the property between 9th and 10th November. While service and food were decent, our tree house, in which we were rather cramped for space, was swarming with ants, so much so, that even frequent spurts of insecticide wouldn’t do much good. We spent most of the night awake, warding off armies of ants that came from nowhere. Linen used was dirty, towels bore marks of shoddy washing..all in all, a horrifying experience, considering the tariff that was being charged.

While coming from Kolkata, drive straight to Bardhaman and take left turn from there, drive for 40-50 minutes along Bardhaman- Arambagh road. The place is situated inside a nursery and beside Dwarkeswar river. Need to walk about 10 minutes from the parking area. Not recommended for seniors or anyone with walking/climbing restrictions. The 3 tree-houses are smallish bed rooms made of wood. These are equipped with AC, TV sets. They also have very small, attached washrooms with geyser.It takes some time to get hot water. There is an additional tree-house, which serves as a common area for guests and doubles up as the dining room. That too is equipped with AC, TV, washroom, indoor games for kids etc. Down below, there is a swing, place for small games etc. They also serve barbecue chicken, when its not raining. The food is quite good, generally Bengali cuisine. You can have posto bora, kosha mangsho, chingri malaikari, fresh katla curry etc.. The staff members are quite helpful and well mannered. You can have a look at their private zoo which has lots of exotic birds , a few turkeys, emu, one iguana and they also have dogs, which we missed. They also run an institute for people/kids with special needs. Overall a good experience. Tips - 1. Rooms are good enough to accommodate a couple + 1 kid max. 2. Go in a big group and book all the 3 rooms to ensure privacy. Sharing the common area with others may be chaotic 3. There are lot of mosquitoes. Cover your legs and carry repellents

We have been to this place twice during winters with family for picnic.Firstly Their hospitality is very good.The moment we reached our breakfast was ready.We had Luchi,Alu-Phulkopir torkari and Rosogolla followed by tea.The food was very tasty.The lunch was also very good.We had Rice,Dal,Alu Bhaja,Mutton.In between they provided us Chicken pakoras. Overall the food was really good. The tree houses are just fantastic.The tree houses are maintained very well and the interior decoration is also pretty good.There are 4 tree houses in total.We were a group of 12-13 ppl and we were given 2 tree houses. On the other side of the road you can visit their nursery.You will get to see various birds and animals.The nursery is also very well maintained. I would suggest this place.

A wonderful property to spent a couple of days with Family and friends. It has a total of 4 tree houses with one dedicated as a family room. Has all the modern amenities aling with a nice collection if books and Dvd's. A range of games available for both kids and adults alike. Amazing service, lip smacking food a huge nursery with a wonderful collection of plants and birds. Bornfire and BBQ was the icing on the cake. Just a couple of suggestions - the Treehouse rooms are smell, bathrooms should have an exhaust fan and a rack at least. But overall a wonderful 2 nights spent.

We were 2 families with kids on a road trip to Kamarpukur and Joyrambati and decided to spend a night in this property after having stumbled upon it while checking TripAdvisor. This place is awesome with service unparalleled to any star category. There are 4Tree houses of which 3 are double bedded room with attached toilet while the one is a sitting and dining room with a washroom attached and a veranda overlooking rather placid river Dwarakeshwari which reveals its fearsome color during the heightened monsoon. This place is serene amidst lots of tree offering you a natural habitat that we yearn for. The rooms were a bit small but exceptionally well maintained with TV/ Dish TV, Geyser, Shower and a powerful split AC, Fan. As the night set-in, the gentry lit up the fire candles which brought in the certitude of being inside the wood. We settled down in the sitting area caressing scotch and spending quality time with kids and family over movie, board games, food and guffaws. It was an evening of relaxation and nothing else. Next morning, we had our breakfast in the opens. In between we quickly tried our hands on Dart, Table Tennis, Cricket and even bow & arrow. Yes they have it all. The entire staff were fabulous bunch of hard working and caring lot. That’s when we decided to be back in winter to get pampered for at least a couple of nights. This place may not suit people with walking disability as it calls for walking within the sprawling farm. This is particularly for those who love wilderness and can be at peace with oneself, introspecting or otherwise. Long live Aambagan. P.S: during the season of mango, be careful as mangoes would definitely fall aplenty, including over you.

Just beside Dwarkeswar River. 3 nos tree house ( Totapuri, Golupkhas and Himsagar) with a adda room (All kind of amenities). Entry through a nursery named pallishree and then shifted too the tree houses within a Aambagan. You have to park your car within the nursery and a little walk through the aambagan. Around 90 km from kolkata will take 2.30 to 3 hrs. by car. About the service again superb. They are always ready to give their best. You can play TT, Carrom, can check your aim with dirt and arrow and basketball. Food is very delicious. Yes agree with Arnab D STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

We came here with family on 2.3.18. Post entering the premises I got a bit apprehensive as could not see the property where we have booked. The entrance of this place is a nursery. Then we were being transferred to the accommodation area, path was through a jungle with various surprises around. The name “treehouse” is actually true. There are three AC double bedded rooms (they provide extra mattresses, if required) and one adda zone which has rocking chair, easy chairs, LED TV with DVD player and DTH connectivity. All of these are placed on trees, with proper support, and you have to reach there via stairs. The rooms are cosy and very clean, the attached bathrooms have all the modern fittings & amenities. All rooms have LED TVs with DTH connectivity. Now coming to the service, which was flawless. They will cook the food what you order (mentioned in the menu). The staffs were very courteous. The dinning place is in open air with a swing and a hammock nearby. We played colors post the dol and holi was over and there was no objections from the staffs, they were helpful enough to provide extra towels for cleaning up. If you like offbeat staying and love green, then this place is a must visit. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

Aambagan the Riverside Retreat in Arambagh, Hooghly district is the new weekend getaway from Kolkata. Just a year old, and maybe lesser, it has quietly made a niche for itself. They have a vast estate, where they grow their own organic vegetables, have their own free range eggs, including duck Eggs. The cows in the estate give you fresh milk and curd.. And the river Dwarokeshwar which flows by the tree houses is amazing peaceful. Now let me come to the tree houses. Only 4 now (3 bedrooms and one lounge area), they are amazing! You climb up the tree houses.. And you get all creature comforts that you are looking for. There is AC, there is TV, there is geyser! The rooms are small but comfortable and the tiny bathrooms are very modern. The lounge area has books, DVDs.. Anything else you want to keep yourself occupied. However if you want to be outside, take a walk amidst the estate. I promise you, the whole day will be spent. There is always staff that will guide you through the walks. There are huge flower cultivation farms, vegetable farms, and also some exotic birds and some big breeds of dogs. You can buy organic vegetables to take back home, Duck eggs and a lot of other staples made in the farms. Rice, ghee, oil, spices, etc. A whole range of Ayurvedic cosmetics, named Urvija.. is also there for you on sale. There is a dog shelter house for stray and hurt dogs. And now let's come down to food (It's always about food at the end). Simple Bengali meals, that is cooked in front of you.. The quality is excellent and you will certainly lick your fingers at the end of the meals! So test, rejuvenate and walk. That's what you are supposed to do here. Of you want to leave this peaceful haven, you can make day trips to Tarakeshwar, Joyram Bati and Bishnupur, Purulia.

Of the tree houses I have been (so far mainly in Tamil Nadu and Kerala), this one in West Bengal on the banks of Hoogly river is the best in design, upkeep and maintenance..has a FB page (Name as in parenthesis)..excellent living amidst nature, yet with modern amenities inside, restaurant attached, small play area, secluded and secured among orchards with water flowing in channels (bamboo bridges) and on other side in Hoogly river.. excellent place..
