Last Month, after nearly one year of suffocating seclusion owing to Corona, our entire family decided to unshackle and move to Salboni Retreat in our own cars. One can set the place on GPs and nevigate. The road is smooth and wide (National Highway), barring half a mile strech near Kharagpur . From Kolkata the journey would take about three and half hours by car. The resort is located inside a huge forest, frequented by elephants and other smaller animals. Try to stay in their heritage block called Durgabari, like we did. Till last December the place was owned by Dasgupta family who purchased the property from British owners. Now they have given the huge property to a private party on a long term lease. Rooms are not small but restromms are really small and not well maintained , unlike the rooms. Food is served in a seperate two storey building, barring tea/coffee/evening snacks - which are served in the rooms. One cons : the four rooms that we booked werte not air conditioned and in the scorching heat of the that arid area one will not survive without AC in summers or early monsoon. Food is simple Bengali food with every ingradient fresh. Taste of dishes were mediocre but passable. In the room rent breakfast and dinner are included (MAP). The erstwhile owners had great taste and the resort is very asthetically designed. I had many friends visiting the place beforehand and all spoke onlt good about the place. Non availability of AC and restrooms being very small and not properly maintained are definite cons but the most critical cons were the prohibitively exorbitant prices of food, mineral water, hot drinks etc.to give an example, a simple cup of tea is priced at Rs. 60/-. Any thing brought from outside are sold at a premium, much above MRP. The new management do not accept Cards though $G connection is excellant . By the way, there is no wi fi, which is very inconvenient in these days of work from home or whereever you are. To add to the woos, we could not find any single working ATM at neartby Jhargram town. We were in a thick soup since we were carrying all sorts of cards, internet banking, wallets etc. but nothing worked. The staff are very courteous but have no kn owledge about the surrounding. The area has rich heritage, palaces, old temples Dams, waterfalls, hills to trek with fantastic scenery whereever we went. Though their werbsite talks about all places of tourist attractions - they staff, knew nothing of nothing. It was a fun discovering every place of interest ourselves. Last cons : They do not give pucca bill for any thing, only handwritten bills on white papers and in the process the Country is loosing GST etc.

When you have good friends from college days joining to chill together then it's nothing like driving to Salboni Retreat in Jungle Mahal .. a thickly forested hilly country and a region inhabited by tribal groups called Santhals. We lived in tents, sat by the bonfire in the chilly nights & enjoyed super class " Bush Barbeque" prepared by the expert cooks of Salboni Retreat. The Salboni Resort with a wide expanse and a fine view of the sal forests is a perfect getaway from our home in Kolkata. Cheers !!

It takes time for city folks to discover the snooze button. That secret of going into a blissful state of inaction becomes increasing difficult in our daily hustle. However still there are places in the world where the lucky few can immerse themselves in this pursuit, that has been the main goal of yogis in the part. It is really a good karma. Jungle lodges there are many in our country even reconverted hunting ones are not quite uncommon, but what makes Salboni Retreat unique is the unkempt beauty that the owners have carefully preserved for more than 7 years now. So no swimming pools for you or the grotesque discotheque not even manicured lawns. Instead what you get is a bit of pristine forest with shaded walks within a fenced property that makes the possibility of a sighting all the more alluring. Let me get the facts straight this is not really a hotel not even a so called homestay but almost like staying with the family of Soumya & Abontika, who are bringing up a young precocious child in midst of nature. It really makes you long for being the child again. The place has a number of secret paths that should remain a secret. Located just off the state highway the Retreat is a comfortable 4 hours drive from Kolkata. But for lazy guys like me, who are perpetually in the pursuit of the snooze button, the train is a more convenient option with the Retreat being a short drive from the station. On the way you are greeted by frequent boards warning you of entering the elephant corridor. As Soumya puts it elephants are quite mathematical animals knowing well that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. So if they take fancy for the innumerable mango trees in the property, when they are in season, the fence in the way is a mere collateral damage. There are total of 13 rooms with the premium ones located in a cluster of a standalone building ideal for a biggish group, who would want to cherish their privacy and enjoy a bonfire together. If you want to light one disregarding the carbon impact that the tall sal trees may induce in you. Should you want to ditch the bonfire just look up at the sky, stargazing is a serious activity with the resident astronomer, who is all of 3 feet taking you on a whirlwind journey of the galaxies. You would be really amazed by his knowledge and passion. The standard rooms are quite comfortable with adequate arrangements, while the premium ones have air conditioning. The tree house is getting ready while the hammock recently broke off, it would have been impossible to get one away from it, in the perpetual pursuit of bliss. This is not the place to do seven things in two days. Though there are attractions like the 500 year old Kanakdurga temple, crystal clear Dulung river or the regal Chikligarh Palace a short drive away. The Jhargram palace has been ruined by mindless restoration going completely against the character of the place. The Tribal museum makes one sorry for the lost opportunity, the herbal garden is most informative and would have really benefitted with a small shop selling some samples with an interpretation centre. Go on long walks enjoy the serenity and be charmed by the minimal beauty that touches your heart both by its simplicity and variety. Another critical to success factor is the warmth of the hosts who really ensure that you are welcome into their home. This really makes your stay memorable and special. Abontika’s eye for details and care touches the heart and arouses the longing to get back to the Retreat at the earliest opportunity. The other attraction beyond nature is the food that nourishes you during your presence at the property. For the lovers of Bengali home food this is close to heaven. The variety of greens, reds and vegetables remind you of fond memories. So the fish curry doesnot have the layer of oil common at speciality restaurants but a light touch of coriander leaves enhancing the flavour. The mutton curry revives the Sunday lunch feeling. Let me end with an ode to the luchi, they are fluffy, white and perfectly round. People wanting to try different cuisine needs to specify their preference which can be adequately catered to. All in all this is a must visit place. Go there soon before the surroundings get discovered by hordes of tourists thronging to escape the drudgeries of life and we have the bane of faceless resorts mushrooming all around, as is encountered in a number of our pristine locations, done to death by mindless overtourism. For the sake of a balanced review, let me end with the only thing that we missed. Even the cricket fell into a mellow sonorosity not wanting to disturb the silence but just providing the right accent to the rustle of the leaves the constant wind raised in the property. The birds were quiet and did not create the racket we are normally used to. Maybe they were also on their own trip of pursuing bliss.
