The reviews we saw and on the basis of which we planned a trip to Monchasha didn’t turn out to be so good for us… Our stay over there makes me feel that all those reviews are cooked up… the pictures of the cottages that you see on their webpage are very old… the hay that were laid on the roofs, probably, have not been changed for ages.. The cottage walls are all bamboo with large gaps in it… specially where the roof meets the wall, it’s a gap through which a standard size animal can get into the room… The menace, at the time, when we visited the place on 24th December was the rats… those big rats were all over on the bamboo frames of the rooms.. the kids got panicked and we had a hard time to make them stay there even for that night… we took a decision to leave the place the next day even though our booking was for two days.. the next morning we realized those rats nibbled through two of the bags that had some food inside… fortunately we had shifted all other bags with foods into our cars the previous night… And when all these were happening we called one Mr Debashis… this person, supposedly, the remote manager, started preaching us about the concept of eco tourism…. And we all have it recorded… the following are few points from him.. 1) We don’t understand what eco tourism is 2) Rats are supposed to be there anyway 3) We need to explain to our children about this ecosystem and ask them not to get scared 4) They don’t use rat poisons not to hamper the ecological balance Our Answer was 1) You need to at least secure the rooms where you are sleeping at night 2) A localite said the pesticides are used regularly. Hence Debashis’s version on the usage of pesticide is wrong. It was somehow not used for some period. 3) This is not a no-profit, environment friendly org kind of thing, hence, you should listen to the visitors if they have any issue and try to resolve it 4) No letter to Mr Debashis would help because it would fall into the deaf ears of his employers, who entrusted him to behave uncourteously with the customers 5) Had it not been winter they would have even said the snakes were also supposed to be there. Anyways, we left the next day… we didn’t get any refund as they took the entire payment (including food bills – 5 days before the trip) upfront. Another surprise that we had the same morning was the drivers’ dormitory. It was very untidy and the toilet beside it was completely soiled and it didn’t have any water supply to it. As per them that is an emergency toilet. Only after we complained they cleaned the toilet and put some buckets of water there. We would never think of visiting this place again, not even in our dreams.

Food: - Great People at Service: - Awesome It was the poorest experience we have ever had (11 people, booked 3 rooms, for 24th & 25th Dec, 2020). We left the place on 25th Dec, noon. In crisp, here are our problems: 1. Driver’s toilet was without water and totally uncleansed — not in a position for an overnight stay 2. Our room’s toilet was soiled with water as it was leaking from a broken joint — with a temporary fix. 3. Just after dusk, big rodents were playing in the living room, leaving our children panic-stricken and just quarantined on bed. As a result, 2 bags were found with holes in the morning. We left just after first night. 4. Dumb-headed manager Mr. Debasish — instead of sorting out above-mentioned issues, he was trying to define Eco-tourism definition to us. We all know Service paid is service committed. If this type of ill-behaving continues it would be hard impact on your business.

"Mon chasa"......the niche where the human spirit discovers freedom and expression. Nestled along the bank of the Bagda river, Monchasha will transcend you to a world of fresh air, colourful blooms, green boughs, happy faces and endless moments of peace and tranquility. The place has been aesthetically preserved in its own ecosystem, with bamboo huts which boast of an airy room, a tiny balcony overlooking the river and a common veranda for the evening gup shups. The food is quintessentially bengali,with its rich flavour and matchless taste. As you take an early morning stroll , you cannot miss the aroma of the dew drenched earth, the musical chirps of the birds and the lung fulls of unpolluted air. The almost centrally located pond will invite you for an idle day in fishing while the little ones will be greedy to run around or swing on the swings. A day or two would never seem enough to have your fill of this beautiful place. Because, as they say, A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. And that's what Monchasha is about, it epitomises it's name to full honesty, a rejuvenation for your soul.

I came to know about this fantastic place from one of my clients. Monchasa is built around the eco-tourism concept and this resort created the old charm of a traditional village in Bengal. There are four cottages and each cottage can accommodate 4 people. Bamboos are primarily used for making the cottages and the good part is, it exactly gives you the exact feel of a rural home. Staffs are homely and are experts at their craft. The food is super great and delicious. They served us a nicely decorated meal during lunch and puffed rice with pakoras in the evening snacks along with tea. Dinner and breakfast were also a traditional Bengali style. All the vegetables and fish items that are served are from their own garden which is there in their backward. I recommend you should visit this place to get away from the urban jungle. The place is not very far and is on the Kolkata Digha highway route.

Monchasha is a resort developed specially with the vision of a tranquil, ecofriendly living style in a village of Bengal. A lot of architectural and enginnering thoughts has gone in to make the accommodations look and feel like cottages with thatched roofs and wooden frame doors, windows, balconies and floor. But inside all modern amenities are available, except the airconditioner. A winter visit makes that need redundant. The food is delicious and homemade, and the service quality is superb and impeccable. There is parking facility inside. It takes a a while to reach the place, but once you reach, the peaceful ambience is truly comforting.

Stayed for a night during Jan 2018 with family & friends Loved the true rural atmosphere and the overall ambiance of the place. Meals with set menu were superb. with great variety & taste. Cottages were huge & though we were only two persons in a cottage, it could have easily accommodated four. However, the cottages suffered from a design flaw by leaving a gap between the bamboo walls and the thatched roof. This allowed the cold air to come in at night & turn the room super cold, and highly uncomfortable even with blankets /quilts. Also, access roads are very poor indeed. Much better rural eco-experience available at Breathing Earth cottages near Usti -Falta- West Bengal.

We visited in monsoon. Place is very average and nothing close to the pics on website. Also it's quite claustrophobic in terms of space as opposite to the feeling one gets when he sees the pics. Food is good, first day lunch was awesome, mutton was good but it was not tender and then they ran out of menu options hence there is not much to say about. Room hygiene and maintenance is a big issue. One can hear clearly what the people in neighbouring rooms are talking about. If anyone plays music in adjoining room then u can clearly hear it. My neighbours kept fighting during their stay and we had to bear with it. Suitable for one day visit. There is a lot of scope for development and the management can definitely do the same I feel.

This is a small recreational village type place. There are 4 huts with quad occupancy. The rooms are well lit and equipped with nets and basic facilities. We cooled our own food because the regular tourists are Bengali and did not know our cuisine. But the staff are extremely helpful and the place is really beautiful. It's a peaceful visit away from the hustle of the town. The best time to visit is winters till March End and April mid when the climate is a little cool.

3.5 hrs drive from Kolkata and you are in Monchasa a Eco Tourism Resort par excellence. If you are driving towards Digha, you have to take a Right from Kalinagar Bus Stop, from Kalinagar Monchasa is 6km, and the roads are pretty well. They have 4 cottages , each cottage can accomodate atleast 5 people easily. Going in big group is recomended because otherwise you will be paying more for no reason. The food is excellent and its homemade bengali food, and in bengali terms "Kobji Dubiye Khawa" the staff are friendly. Specially if you are travelling with kids they will love it the whole experience.
