I visited Tarapith and Bolpur in Dec2021. It was a family trip. I had a 7 years old kid and senior citizen parents wirh me. Basically i booked this hotel online through their website . The best part is you can book the property by room number from wesite. One recommendation will be to book rooms on 1st Floor. That will give you the best views ( example : Room no 5 &6). The Hotel is decorated with a rural concept and you will get the feeling of mud house. So do not expect any high end luxury in the room. But you will have basic amenities like - AC/ mini fridge/ geyser etc. The USP of this property is its food. It is budget friendly yet yummy taste. If you are not a resident of the hotel then you will need to collect advance lunch token to get your chance. I am told by the manager that they have served lunch to 1000+ people on 25th Dec. People from all over Bolpur come to taste food here. The Sonsjhuri Haat is just outside the Hotel campus. In fact you can enjoy Baul Dance and Tribal Dhamsha Madol dance sitting on your balcony. The room rent is also decent. You will get Rooms in the range of INR 2000 - 2500. They have POS facility for all payments. The only challenge i faced was the service timeline. May to due to extreme rush on account of festive season they were unable to serve breakfast/ Lunch / Dinner on time and they have denied to accept orders in few instances. Management should look into this and take some corrective actions I have covered this hotel and Bolpur in my Youtube Channel. You will get the link in my profile. Do take time out to view and share your opinion…
One star each for ambience outside room, flee market next to the location and hospitality of the room keeper. But I wouldn’t like to call it a resort. The room were too small, untidy and bed very uncomfortable. Had booked for a Baul Gaan and that was amazing, not included in resort amenities.
A Bengali friend has suggested me this resort to and it was the best part of our trip to Shantiniketan. The staff is very good. At our request, they lit a bonfire as well. The food was also good. The location of this resort is also very good.
We had heard a lot about this hotel until we physically visited this one just two weeks back. It was a real treat indeed! Located inside the Sonajhuri forest, this hotel cum restaurant is approximately 10 mins of toto ride ahead of Biswabharati. The food is all authentic Bengali. They have a thali system where veg thali is the base. One can top it up with fresh fish (katla/ pabda) or chicken or mutton. Since it's a thali system, one can feed till neck deep. We had three elderly people on our group, besides us, the youngsters. Everyone was thoroughly satisfied with the food, the ambience and the hospitality of the staff. They serve meals in "kansar thala" and "kansar glass". The veg meal has got rice with Begun bhaja, muger dal, aloobhaja, shukto, sobji, aloof chochhori. All taste awesome. You will get extra lemon, green chilli, papad and achar if you need. The mutton or the fish are of real good quality. The mutton was of "kochi patha" variety and not a "khasi". So you would get solid meat. Four pieces in a plate. Fair enough size. Fir fish, we ordered Katla. There were two quite big pieces. Wholesome, handsome. And heartful taste. Coming to the ambience, they have decorated the entire resturant like a mud house. Even the sitting chairs are made of big logs of wood, which synchronise with the ambience. They also offer stay facilities. Easy to book. And no issue with conveyance, as local totos line up in front almost throughout the day. …
Just returned yesterday from ram shyam village resort.i wonder how can they even call it a resort ?the rooms are very small witj small beds dirty bed sheets which are small and are not properly done.the bathrooms are shabby not properly lit though with a geyser.rooms hv ac nd led tv's.dirty pillows with covers.spider webs in d rooms nd bathrooms.the entire place is full of flies.they hardly clean d rooms.food was very very normal nothing special. veg thali is 130.dont go for thali it costs more i felt.the morning tea is horrible.fly in d restaurant makes the place more giddy.mutton was worthless.only thing its amidst d haat nd u ll njoy that.the windows are wooden so no sunlight comes in the morning unless u open them nd once u open yr rooms gets filled up with flies.not value for money only am experience.…
The food in the restaurant is not up to the mark. Quality and taste is below the bottom. Avoid. All though it's neat and clean. The mutton was tasteless. Egg curry tasteless. Horrible quality of rice. Nearly vomited seeing the brinjal fry. They do not put any effort in their cooking. Just making money. All staff beheviour was polite.
You have to ask for shona jhuri haat. This haat or local market sits every day from lunch time in a minor way and in a major way on Saturday. Here there are two places Shakuntala and Ram-Shyam of which the latter seemed to be more popular, so we ate there. Twice. They have a la carte but also thalis (fixed menu). The fish thali is 270 and the mutton thali is 350. Mutton pieces not too great. Overall excellent food, service and ambience.
Fell in love with this place right away..named after the brothers Ram and Shyam the exterior looks a little tacky..the kind we see in picture books.We didn't stay here but I would ask visitors to drop in here for lunch. They serve you in bell metal (Kansa) utensils and with the tastiest food possible..typical Bengali fare of course!!
Hotel location is excellent, just within the range of sonajhuri haat. Hotel environment is superb. Food available is traditional bengali dishes, most of the are good . Room size and toilet size is really small. Room service is need to improved.
Sumptuous Sunday Lunch in bengali style at Ram Shyam Village Resort at the Saturday Market (শনিবারের হাট) of SonaJhuri, Bolpur-Santiniketan, West Bengal. The Veg Thali was good but the Mutton we didn't relish that much. It was under-cooked. But the Aloo-Posto was really good in taste. Ambience is good. It is a rural themed hotel cum restro with clay wall, wooden log furniture, bamboo and wooden combination of ceiling with rustic lighting. You have to wait after a mid size queue on Saturday & Sunday during lunch hour. Report Card: Quality: 3.5/5 Quantity: 4/5 Service: 4/5 Ambience: 4/5 Value for money: 3/5
