Riviera is back in Durgapur as 'The Damodar Retreat'. So a weekend trip to the property was drawn up and it was worth the visit in every sense. TDR as its fondly called now boasts now of vast expanse of greenery all around the rooms. The first impression that one has as the gates open up is that this resort is nestled in the greens!! The landscaped gardens and the 'home grown veggies' plot provide that much needed 'soothing view'. Having driven nonstop for 3 hours, we were pretty much hungry and the polite staff at TDR promptly advised us to check in for a tasty dinner. I am generally apprehensive about eating mutton outside my home turf but the staff's assurance at TDR was proven hands-down when the succulent meat dishes arrived piping hot and matched our expectations! The rooms are big and the washrooms even bigger. Infact there's enough space inside the washroom to add a bed or two. Probably because this is a heritage property (it goes back as early as the 60s and is WBTDC's first resort in Bengal) that the rooms and the washrooms are so generous in their dimensions. The food quality and service is quite good and we hope to taste those dishes which we missed out in this visit. Its only a 2 hour drive from Mukutmanipur and a 1 hour drive to Bankura-Bishnupur and thats the reason we saw cars full of holiday goers drop by for a quick rest and food. For the urbanised Kolkatans and especially for the children who crave for open spaces, this resort provides ample oppurtunity to indulge in outdoor activities. We heard that the pool will be functional in a month's time, which will be great for the coming summer. My best part about the stay at TDR was waking up to the call of birds and nothing else, not a single sound of any machine or engine!! That was priceless.... Will I come back again? For sure and next time I will bring my kid and their friends and family too...they will love feeding the rabbits and seeing how vegetables are grown. TDR to me was an eclectic mix of modern day resort set amidst rural environment!!
