Book A Cottage-Style Room At This Shantiniketan Resort For A Peaceful Weekend
What Is It?
The Chhuti Holiday Resort has been built in Rabindranath’s second home, Shantiniketan and is dedicated to the poet’s wife, Mrinalini Devi (Chhuti was the name Tagore lovingly gave his beloved wife.) From the structure of the property to its rooms and cottages, everything here is kept simple, full of greenery and very close to how old homestays and farm houses used to be during Tagore’s time. They have 22 cottages with simple white walls, a bed, wooden interiors and ceiling and a couple of chairs. The look is kept this way as it resembles stays from the poet’s era. The dining area is a common one with quaint décor, wooden furniture, stone floors, cottage-style celing and dim hanging lights. The property is full of greenery and colorful flowers, small porches, gardens, and trees. In the evenings, they arrange for baul song and dance programmes.
