Santiniketan: Creativity at its Peak


The positioning of this eco-stay is like that of Taj Mahal, in the sense that you will not be able to see anything from a distance. But once you enter the house, your eyes will be full of joy and happiness. It has two big mud villas, each with a pond of its own. Lot of coconut trees surround the pond making you feel like, you are in Kerala. All the trees and plants have been so well curated that you can spend hours just observing their beauty. And, the creative mind behind all this, is of the owner itself. Not to forget, they also serve awesome home made Bengali food. The owners of the house will treat you like their family but also expect you to treat their house as your own. Santiniketan is the cultural and artistic hub of India. I visited many eco stays here but this is the best in every aspect.
