“Banani Resort on Murti river”
Reviewed 27 April 2013

If you have adequate time for your trip to Dooars, keep an evening free for Banani Resort on the Murti River. You need to book well in advance from various Govt outlets and internet. The resort has several rooms but are generally booked during peak season.The first floor has a lobby and a veranda overlooking the river and you can spend a very long time, silently hearing the river flow, watching birds and animals coming over for a drink. In the morning you can take a walk along the river under the beautiful bridge and go towards the tent accomodation across the road and walk further along the river. Be little careful as you may encounter some animal. The food in the resort is decent enough and very cheap. This is an ideal place to soak in nature and also introduce your kids to nature. Carry a binocular if you can.

Room Tip: first floor rooms offer a better view of the river

You need to love murti , to stay here. Yes this is true. I have visited murti for 6 times , because I love this place. But Resort murti comes in 2 tier facilities in this area. You should always try the Govt facilities like Banani , Murti Cortege etc.
The Place is good , given the proximity to the Murti river and forest towards Khuniya more. Rooms are too small for a full grown family . If you are travelling with friends , it's OK . Because you will be able to drink and eat Chiken Pokora or tanduri in your Varahndah seeing the camp fire and the tribal dance. These staffs will not be available in Govt Reports or bungalows. You can do what ever inside your room.
I have a suggestion for you. Try this out only if you are accompanied by Locals. I can do it , because I know this place and it's people for last 4 years. " Take a Van Rikshaw and ask him to drive through the forest upto Khuniya More . It is risky , as there are chances of Elephants crossing the road and elephants are not good if it comes closer to you. The Van will charge you around 200-300 bugs . But again you should not try this if you are not along with Locals. "
The place has a considerable population of Bengali Muslims. If you get hold of some local guys , ask him to prepare " Deshi Murgir Jhol ".
Food inside the resort is not that great.

This place is located right on the banks of River Murti in Jalpaiguri, North Bengal. You need to walk about 100m on a narrow path along the river to get to the resort. Very Relaxing place. Its basically a eco tourism camp with 3 cottages. Nice place to enjoy a private bath in the cool mountain waters of river murti, see the trains go by, see elephants in the rice fields across the river. You get to stay inside the wilderness with basic creature comforts. There is the caretaker & cook and his wife who will take good care of you, they try to arrange for all kind of foods, snacks, tea coffee as informed by you earlier. Try to appreciate it is on the fringes of a Jungle away from any settlement so all kind of food may not be available. The experience was very soothing and refreshing. Definitely for the nature lover, else u will get bored. In the eve villagers from nearby came to perform local dance.
