About

 

Choupahari is a “boutique HOME-STAY resort” near Santiniketan. Located half-way between Bolpur and Illambazar and half kilometre off of the main road Choupahari is immersed in incredible natural beauty, set under a mixed canopy of mango, teak, mahogany, neem, and jack fruit trees. Choupahari provides the perfect getaway for you and loved ones to relax and reinvigorate; reawaken in a place where time stands still.

ACCOMMODATION

We have Six well decorated “over-sized” rooms to give you a feel of a “luxury home stay”. Each one has a name, inspired by the insects you find in the Choupahari jungle like foring (dragonfly), jhni jhni (cricket), bhromor (beetle) and jonaki (firefly) etc. While the first three are on the ground floor, the other three are on the upper floor.

Each air-conditioned room with huge glass windows offers a calm and comfortable environment with a natural view and services such as intercom, satellite TV, free WiFi, mini fridge and a kitchenette. All rooms come with a private bathroom with geyser and a balcony. Extras include slippers and free toiletries. We also have a dormitory for a couple of drivers.

LEISURE

A stay at Choupahari includes access to a range of common leisure spaces: a gazebo, a small library, and Gunjon, a multi activity adda zone. Each is organised by our friendly staff to guarantee the tranquillity typical of a village holiday home coupled with the advantages of a modest resort.

At the request of guests, we love to invite local Baul maestros to join us in the evening. This eclectic group of mystic minstrels–consisting of Vaishnava Hindu practitioners and Sufi Muslims–were strongly influential on Rabindranath Tagore’s music. Perhaps their rhythmic melodies will inspire your own poetry ! You may even use our tanpura and scale changing harmonium to practice a few music lessons at Choupahari or may get interested to paint unbridled on canvases and flaunt your art using materials that is available with us.

Whether you desire meditation in a quiet space away from the kids, relaxation with a romantic stroll around the garden and afternoon tea, or diversion with an impromptu movie night in our glass house, we strive to accommodate all recreational requests.

If you have an activity in mind, let us know with an email to hello@choupahari.com and we’ll do our best!

INDULGE

We serve simple, authentic Bengali dishes. Our cooks are inspired by the tradition and passion of centuries-old home-cooking. In that vein, meals are served on terracotta plates, bowls and banana leafs.

Menus are decided upon each morning, with one meal typically consisting of Basmati rice, two vegetarian, one fish, and one meat dishes. Lunch is typically served between 12:30 and 1:00 PM and dinner is served between 8:30 and 9:30 PM.

We provide a complimentary breakfast either of milk-cereal, luchi-aalurdom, toast-omelette, and seasonal fruits or a combination of them each day of your stay along with tea and coffee. There is a small kitchenette in your room with small sachets of tea, sugar, milk and coffee that you can use whenever you feel like.

Also, a small selection of snack items like biscuits/chips/chanachur/nuts/fruit juice are available for purchase.

We generally do not offer any room service as the food has a long way to travel from our kitchen. Also, being a jungle HOME-STAY resort we are extra cautious while maintaining hygiene and cleanliness in our property. In the case of older adults and people with chronic disabilities of all ages, we have a flexible support system and our charges are 10% extra on food, snacks and cold drinks. Please note : we don’t serve alcohol anywhere in the property.
