This 300-year-old Boutique Heritage hotel featuring a Greco-Roman style has been superbly restored. The property is reminiscent of both the British Raj and the feudal lifestyles of Bengal's Zamindari landlords. It is the ideal place to experience centuries old architecture, opulence and history of this small hamlet of the 24 Paganas, and Bengal’s traditional performing arts. In addition, there is also a strong focus on highlighting and supporting the local arts and crafts from its surrounding village communities.

Hotel Facilities & Highlights
Mr Ajay Rawla
Your Host & The Team
“When I first saw Rajbari Bawali it was in a state of ruin, yet I was struck by its timeless elegance. It had an Angkor Vat like appearance. Banyan Trees, had taken hold of the building in many sections, and had destroyed away the roof and walls of several wings. I was transfixed and completely in love with the place. We sent a team of master masons from Murshidabad to train and work with the Agha Khan Foundation while they were restoring Humayun’s Tomb in Delhi. They worked tirelessly throughout the seven year restoration period to bring Rajbari Bawali to its current state.”
“Set in the countryside just south of Calcutta, this 30-room royal heritage getaway is a fully restored 300-year-old palace that once belonged to the Zamindars.”
Kim, the discoverer.
