About The Rajbari Bawali
Set around grand courtyard lined by bare-brick columns, The Rajbari Bawali is a wonderfully restored mansion estate. This building actually predates India’s colonial era. The property enjoys convenient access for daytrips in the world-famous city of Kolkata. Yet it sits a little way out of the city in the heart of nature, where Little changes and the atmosphere remains tranquil and scenic.
Discover a fantastic range of room choices, each themed according to the rich styles of the original inhabitants. Enjoy high-vaulted ceilings, four-poster beds and views over the verdant countryside. You also have the option of Dak Bungalow, a self-contained bungalow within the grounds, offering a little extra privacy.
Throughout your stay, you will have the chance to take part in a range of activities and experiences. Explore the local area by bicycle, take a traditional-Indian cooking class and visit the surrounding villages to grab a slice of local life. You may also witness an authentic Sandhya Aarati ceremony.
