Relaxing, Refreshing and Rejuvenated !
on Jan 27, 2018
This is an amazing place to stay . The cottages have all your urban comforts along with free wi Fi (just like oxygen ) and are spacious for a family with two teenagers. The built in sofas double up as spare beds are are truly comfortable even for an obese person like myself .
The staff are friendly and courteous, helpful and ever so kind .
The campus is perfect for a weekend or a midweek break . Corporate houses may prefer to use this venue as a great place for a picnic . There are plenty of sporting activities for the outdoor person and families will truly enjoy their time together. For the not so energetic , you can sit and read a great book or indulge in sun worshiping at least during the winters .
The food is too die for and I personally thanked the Chef for his great menu satisfying both the vegetarian and a carnivore too .
This place is perfect for a quiet getaway from the city as it’s much before Diamond Harbour .
It’s an enjoyable drive and the road trip is excellent.
I would certainly recommend this place for a weekend retreat .I hope the owners keep this place well maintained during the years to come and leave it uncluttered as it adds to its beauty .
Very Well Maintained and Extremely Cordial Staff !

Very Spacious and Well Maintained Rooms.
Bathroom could have been a little more cleaner.
We took rooms just opposite the pool. Pool is clean and a big lush lawn to play around.
Food is good too. Indian varieties in lunch were better than the continental dishes in the dinner.
Breakfast could have had some more varieties.
In total, a good stay. Very relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
A green soothing retreat near Kolkata
on Nov 18, 2017
We were looking for a weekend retreat very near to Kolkata but with a scenic green beauty. Breathing Earth was a perfect spot. We booked over phone. They initially asked for a part payment but later on didn't insist. Its just 1:30 hrs from Kolkata on Usti Road beyond Joka. The mud cottages are all the same. A seating arrangement infront, just like in old houses, really beautiful. The cottages overlook a sprawling lawn with a swimming pool. The inside is well decorated with village motifs and a soothing ambiance. A large queen size bed and two large sofas can easily accommodate 4 adults and a child. The ac was working and liens were clean. The bathroom was spacious. They provided a electric kettle and complimentary tea bags, chips, biscuits and chocolates. There is a mini fridge and a led tv. The large sprawling lawn is great for kids to play but one should be careful about the swimming pool. There are adventure sports available at extra cost. The restaurant serves buffet but one can request room service. The evening tea and snacks are served at the pool side. At night the lawn and pool area is beautifully lighted. As far as cons are concerned, they are not very comfortable giving room service and hints for having food at restaurant, even saying that they cannot provide all types of food (served in buffet) through room service. The food is mostly good. As per our request they did serve fish fry for my little son. The per day price includes lodging and food. One can also go for day trips. Good beautiful place. Quite enjoyed it.

Good for a weekend getaway

Visited the resort recently with family. Prices are fairly reasonable, food is decent, rooms in the mud huts are very spacious and the campus is green and pretty. Service is quite poor however (housekeeping took about an hour to get our room ready while we had to wait outside since the reception is very tiny and the restaurant was being set up for the lunch buffet) and it takes about three phone calls to get a simple job done. All in all, a decent experience that can be repeated every few months because of its proximity to Kolkata.
