Chhuti Holiday Resort

Cottage in Shantiniketan

Chhuti's tree-shaded property offers cottage-style rooms with a few ethnic trimmings, good food in its multicuisine restaurant and an overall sense of peace and quiet. Bathrooms are small and the AC rooms are a big improvement on the non-AC ones. Staff are helpful and reception can arrange for cultural programmes with baul music and tribal dance.

It's not far from the Jambuni bus stand in Bolpur. A toto (battery-powered autorickshaw) to the university will cost you ₹70.
