Ideal place to unwind and relax, oppertunity to explore and come close to Earth What an holiday we had together, it was absolutely a right choice, couldn't have anything better than this in Shantiniketan... The location was bit remote and approach road could have been better,though you need to be bit careful while driving down, however its managable... Once you reach to the resort you will forget the pain of driving... For local sightseeing you can seek for assistance to get a local Toto which the resort manager will help to get that for you and your family...will recommend to take that for local usage. In terms of the resort it has got a huge area with well maintained landscape
Hidden treasure Rare earth is nothing less than a hidden treasure Shantiniketan. You can actually connect with nature right from the moment you reach. The rooms are spacious and heavenly. Home grown fresh vegetables and the ambience is just amazing.
The best place to connect with nature with good people around Me and my family visited there for two nights and three days. Starting from the point we arrived and till we left for Kolkata, it was such an amazing experience to connect with nature. We were treated very well by the host and his team. We enjoyed baul gaan (folk songs), Palm tree juice (Taler Ros) and tasty yet healthy food. We will certainly return again,
