If you are thinking of spending some quality time with your family, look no further. Excellent service, food, hospitality and a little personal touch from Monchasha. Thank you Nilanjanda and Debjanidi..

On January 7, 2015, we made our second trip to Mon chasha, Midnapore. It has already become one of our favourite weekend getaways from Kolkata. The first thing that strikes you when you reach this spot is the management's loyalty towards ecotourism. From the luggage cart to the solar-powered lamps, from using differentiated dustbins for biodegradable and non-biodegradable products to making the cottages using various kinds of plant matter, it is evident that this place has been created with the utmost love and care. This is a perfect rustic experience; I had never seen village life as closely as I did here. To top it all, Mon chasha serves all it's meal using vegetables grown on their very own organic farm. The simple decoration catches your eye: folk instruments hanging here and there, hammocks lining the central lobby area, little cane stools and chairs to relax in the open, birds and animals for children to play with and a beautiful little museum for visitors to learn about village life. If the calm Bagda river, which flows through the backyard of this eco-resort is not soothing enough, the soft, instrumental Rabindra Sangeet played for you all day long revives the tired soul of the modern-day tourist. All-in-all, this place is a must visit when you want some quiet time with your family and the city is almost unbearable.

If you want a glimpse of rural Bengal without compromising on the quality of amenities, this is the destination for you! About two hours and a half by road from Kolkata, this place offers you impeccable comfort without a trace of extravagance. It's just right! It has bamboo-and-wood cottages and earthen rooms for the dining-cum-recreation space, museum of village life and a temple. There is a rich vegetable garden alongwith lush flower beds and pergolas! The staff is very affable and efficient. The food is authentic Bengali cuisine cooked on slow burners!
The adjacent river with it's tides and a couple of duck-ponds complete the idyllic scene.
(PS: You can also take a walk in the village. It won't let you down.)
It is totally worth the value and strongly recommended for anyone wishing to get away from the noise and bustle of city life.

At the onset, lets forget the last 6 kms of the journey, its not in the hands of management however work has started by the Govt. and soon it would be better is what we have been told. So, on with the next bit - The Concept.
I have had my experiences with "eco tourism" in Bengal, it came to a point where we decided not to try any thing to do with ECO as lot of "Businesses" have come up which provides nothing by stating that "we are a ECO resort". They should come to Mon chasha. the Basus have done really well to deserve the ECO responsibility tag, waste management, energy management, natural resource utilisation, local community involvement, reducing carbon footprints and much more.
However, keeping aside the technicalities, what really blows your mind is the warm hospitality and the quality of the stay. Unlike many other "ECO" resorts, there is no compromise on basic comforts, sleep quality and food hygiene. One needs to come here and check the entire practice of how well each and every aspect is monitored so actively.
On the vacation spot, its nicely tucked in the rural belly of Bengal where air is fresh, grass is green and the water has a taste which lingers on, the attraction is the place itself and hence do not plan to do "sight seeing" while you are in Mon chasha, you will be dissapointed.

I had been looking for a different kind of vacation and this is one of the kind. The resort has been built to give a unique feeling and so is the ambience as well as the hospitality(service as well as food). The Van ride to the village and meeting some of the local craftsmen and their families is a showcase of the talent and the challenges that we have in the villages. Very comfortable for vacation with family and close friends. Fishing experience was awsome. My 8 year old son was amazed and he said it is the best place that he has come to.

Room tip: Winters are a good time to go to Monchasha
