The Discreet Charm of a Family-Run Homestay

We offer you the opposite of budget hotels. Our rooms are large and full of natural light, there's enough space for you to do yoga or push-ups inside your room. If you are the sort who doesn't like to stay cooped up in a room, step out and use our sizeable living room space. These are well-appointed with several sets of tables and chairs, so you can have your own quiet corner. There is wifi, there are books you can borrow from our shelves, and there is book art.

The entire property is done up with prints of iconic Bengali book covers and book illustrations, offering a taste of the rich aesthetic and cultural tradition of Bengal.  Bengal is about books, that's usually the first thing people say about Bengalis, that we're bookish. That is why we called our property, Boi-er Bari The House of Books, because this is our way of celebrating the Bengali culture of books and art.

Bawt-tala (Banyan's Shade)

A single room fitted with wardrobe, dressing table, bedside tables and shelves. Ensuite washroom. Air-cooled.

Bawt-tala means under the banyan tree. In Sukumar Ray's classic children's work, classes were convened under a banyan tree and much mayhem ensued. Our first floor is devoted to the Bengali's vocation--reading, writing and studying--so this room is about learning and all the mayhem it entails.
