“Kila Dalijoda”
Reviewed 8 March 2022 for a stay in March 2022
people found this review helpful

Kila Dalijoda a hidden gem just an hour drive from Bhubaneswar. The place is full of nostalgia and old world charm. Ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of big cities and enjoy nature in its pristine beauty.Debjit and Namrata are very warm and gracious hosts. Plan to visit again at the end of the year.

“Definitely worth a few days stay”
Reviewed 27 January 2022 for a stay in January 2022
person found this review helpful

I stayed with an indian friend at kila dajiloda for 2 nights/ 2 days in the middle of january.
It's a memorable experience. It's nice to sleep in a historic home with owners who continue to maintain their heritage.
But most of all Debjit and his wife are very nice and interesting hosts.
Of course, one may think that the stay with them is not among the cheapest but the explanations, the initiatives and the time spent by Debjit for his guests is really priceless. I learned a lot during these 2 days about Indian behavior, odhissa and India...

“A hidden gem of Odisha that is a great mix of history, wildlife and warmth of the hosts.”
Reviewed 9 January 2022 for a stay in January 2022

I made a trip to Kila Dalijoda with my wife and 2 year old son. We were pleasantly surprised by the rich history of the place which was narrated by the passionate host Mr. Debjit SinghDeo. He is a descendant of the Panchkote King who built the mansion as hunting lodge. The property has a lot to offer - antiquity of the property, forest surroundings teeming with elephants, culture of the indigenous tribes of the region, the warmth of the hosts and the delicious food that includes organic vegetables, fish from the property's pond and free-range meat. I made a one night stay which I feel in hindsight should have been at least two nights because there is so much to explore around. My little son loved to run around the property with the pet dogs Coffee and Cookie. The rooms with high ceilings were roomy and exude old world charm.

“A relaxing escape from routine”
Reviewed 24 December 2021 for a stay in December 2021

On 2nd week of December, in order to celebrate my father's birthday we decided to take a short holiday at Kila Dalijoda. Located just 45 - 50km from Bhubaneswar, Kila Dalijoda makes for a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. An erstwhile royal hunting lodge now converted to a homestay by their descendants, it is managed by Mr Debjit Singh Deo and his family. The property, once located inside the forest, is now surrounded by rural landscapes of agricultural fields and distant villages. The Dalijoda forest lies about 2 km from the property and has various trekking trails as well as a small dam with a reservoir that makes for a pretty picturesque sight. The property itself has huge expanse of areas for walking and cycling ( cycles are available) as well as many ponds where fishing and angling can also be enjoyed.
Nights are very silent, especially compared to the noise of the cities, and sounds of owls and jackals are pretty common. The property is also close to an elephant crossing zone so as per Mr Debjit, an elephant sighting might not out of the question if luck favours.
The rooms are huge, comfy and lofty with big semi-outdoor bathrooms. The afternoons and evenings are well spent taking walks, cycling or simply lazing about around the property.
The food is really lovely, home cooked stuff.
One of the best things about Kila Dalijoda is the fact that it is pet friendly and they themselves have 2 sweet dogs called Cookie and Coffee. Our dog Sansa had a great time there.
Mr Debjit and his family, Mrs Namrata and their daughter Shreevidya are wonderful hosts. The evenings and mealtimes are a joy due to their warmth, courteousness and excellent conversations plus discussions.
Mr Debjit is a very good artist and he was really kind enough to give us a wonderful sketch as parting gift.
On the whole we really had a fantastic time and will definitely visit again.

“Cornucopia of experiences - all delightful!”
Reviewed 24 November 2021 for a stay in November 2021

Discovering this homestay and even more the lovely family that hosts gave me the same pleasure as that of discovering a rare diamond in the rough...

We had planned a couple of days here to coincide with our 10th wedding anniversary within our overall holiday and it felt like being with our own family... the hunting lodge harkens you back to the era it was created in with high rise ceilings, large authentic furniture and quaint decor... the walls are adorned with old pictures of the Raj era when the royals ruled as well as paintings by Debjit... and the little anecdotes about the architecture and history add life to them,....the food was delightful (a must for me!) with some totally new dishes...the best part was that be it the milk/milk products or the straw mushrooms everything was fresh and natural/organic Namrata is not only a good cook but also parallels Debjit and their knowledge about history, philosophy and other areas ensured that the time not exploring the outside was spent exploring the inside...

The location has it all - local artisans villages for handicrafts and handloom products as well as stories on the tribal history, loads of nature be it hearing about the ancient elephant routes or the variety of birds or through the nature trails or the surrounding paddy fields or the boat ride through the wetlands - all personally escorted by Debjit who managed to kindle a birdwatcher in me, even spiritual through exposure to the lesser-known Mahima sect...

Besides the fascinating stories of the past, the authenticity and humility of the hosts shines through...while initially there was regret at the short stay there is also the eager anticipation of returning... I could ramble on but would encourage you to get your own...
