Mandarmani Purba Medinapur
Ranked 8 amongst 72 hotels in Mandarmani
THE HOTEL WAS BOOKED BY ME THROUGH MAKE MY TRIP. Charges paid Rs 4200/(Room only basis). When we reached hotel we found that rooms are stuffy full of wizards and flies. No basic amenities in the room or in the toilet. On our request they shifted us in another room slightly better than the previous one. We came to know that the rack rate of the best....Read More
Being there for a weekend with office folks. Very nice property. Well spread out and well maintained. You can relax in the garden or on the hammocks or on the benches near the beach. People are well behaved and service was satisfying. The food was really good. Already recommended this place to others and they also have a good experience.
I had been to Toshali resort in Puri in the month of June in 2013 with my family. I booked it online. Welcome drink was provided. Pick-up and drop facilities were provided. Hotel was located in little outskirts. The appearance was good. Check-in and check-out was done on time. I stayed for two days three nights. There was no view from the room. Act....Read More
Digante Resort ruined our family vacation. Period! Future tripsters, read ahead before you take the leap of fate. 1. No signs to guide you to the so called resort, if not for GPS EVEN SHERLOCK HOLMES WOULD STRUGGLE TO FIND THIS PLACE! Not to mention, the approach road is like the stairway to hell x100 times! 2. Ordering food is nothing les....Read More
One the way to Digante, I was thinking that it will be an average kind of hotel in a not so commercialised area as Mandarmani. On reaching there, I was quite surprised by its location as well as ambiance. Also very good the service and food. Approved!
Rooms are clean and nice. Location is very good, ideal for relaxation. Food is very pricey. Options are limited. Do not take non AC rooms, due to low voltage fans will not run properly. AC runs well with generator. I recommend this hotel as one of budget option in Mandarmani.
The hotel is reviewed by good as after the visit officials request to give a good review online and this is not bad. The draw back is you cannot see the sea from the rooms as Casuarina Tree are making obstruction. Good points are like Mandarmani itself is very nice quiet place away from city life and the hotel is very spacious with lot of open land....Read More

I have done many activities and many mor....Read More
The location of the hotel was very good, as well as the view. It was very nice place to visit and the ambiance was equally good. The scenic beauty from the hotel was awesome. The food served by the hotel was very good in quality as well as quantity. The hospitality over there was a remarkable one.
Everything was OK, like front desk, staff behaviour, food quality. Just we went during holi time. Beach party was excellent, thanks to team Digante. Fabulous food was crab masala, bagda malai curry and vetki paturi. We also enjoy jhau bon Hammock. Free parking was available. We also watched lots of red crab.
Top Reviews of Digante
My trip to Mandamani, a memorable experience. I received a call in the middle of the day from my cousin and my aunt, who live abroad currently. They wanted to explore their beloved West Bengal before they packed their bags and said goodbye to India. I, being a pretty good online researcher, started looking for places and came across the pristine beaches of Mandarmani. Without any further delay I started looking for hotels. This is when I came across holidayiq.com. I used other sites too, but this site gave me better access to crucial information to the hotels i shortlisted (thanks to the simple 'Get info by mobile/email'). All the members of this trip were ladies; four of us, to be precise. So the prime focus of my search was a safe and decent place above everything. I looked at the pictures provided by other helpful reviewers and fell in love with Digante. The place seemed decent and fit our budget too. Upon calling the hotel, the staff was very helpful and also kept their following up on my queries quite professionally. I booked a room at an extremely economical rate over the phone. Part of the payment had to be pre-made and to our convenience, an executive from the hotel came to our doorsteps and gave us a receipt. The hotel also provides pick up and drop from Digha upon request. Our journey commenced on 10 July 2013. After reaching Dighqa, we informed the hotel and they swiftly sent us a car within 10 mins. It was spacious, well-maintained AC car. The driver was very polite and decent. This eased our paranoid minds quite a bit. We drove on the slim red roads and then our eyes met the beautiful vast ocean. We drove parallel to the sea for a few meters before we reached the beautiful entrance of Digante. This journey took us around 45mins- 1hr. We went into the reception area which is a thatched roof hut adorned with beautiful flowers, wines and dragon flies. The natural beauty of the place is a breath of fresh air for any city person! The hotel staff was very polite. Each guest gets a personal attendant, our attendant was a wonderful young lad; very prompt and helpful. We were led to an AC room with two queen-sized beds, a TV, cupboard and a dressing table. Very clean. Even the bathroom was properly maintained. Bed sheets, towels, pillow covers were spotless. My only complain was that they did not have running hot water, i.e. no geyser. Another con is that we reached the hotel right after lunch time and were famished. But the hotel does not provide snacks well before 7pm to 8 pm. Now coming to the food. It was absolutely DELICIOUS! The cook is well -versed with cooking spicy as well as non-spicy food. So the food is prepared the way you want it! This is an absolutely delightful specialty of Digante. The food is unmatched and wonderful. The entire small plantation of trees and the hammocks hanging by the trunks at the entrance add a dreamy touch to this place. The white swans moving around while fluttering their wings , the roaring sea at your footsteps and the sparkling clean beach; what more can one ask? I give it full marks for being respectful and friendly towards women travelers, especially. We bid adieu to Digante on 12 July 2013. We lived a dream for a couple of days and I will always cherish the memories I made there. I will definitely go back there.
I would definitely recommend Hotel Digante. The rooms are very good, surroundings are well maintained, the staffs are very friendly. You can have very tasty Indian food. But do not try for Chinese.
A truly virgin sea beach greets you the moment you set your sights on Mandarmani... Add to that the sheer excitement of driving your car right on the beach (though that spoils the ecosystem) and excellent customer service from the resort... That's sheer bliss of a weekend trip to Mandarmani...If you are looking for too many vacation activities by the sea then the place might dissapoint you a bit.... But if you are tired of city crowds, traffic jams, loud music and horns and just need to laze around and rejuvinate, then this is the place for you... Take a trip to the nearby Mohana (where the river meets the sea) to watch hundreds of red crabs scurrying away as you approach them in the custom made 'Phat Phati'...Otherwise just relax in from the resort on the beach and all your needs (food and drinks) will be served right beside you while you are lounging in your chair...
Its a very pleasant experience for us.people are very nice and service is very good.Location is also fine.
Digante Resort ruined our family vacation. Period! Future tripsters, read ahead before you take the leap of fate. 1. No signs to guide you to the so called resort, if not for GPS EVEN SHERLOCK HOLMES WOULD STRUGGLE TO FIND THIS PLACE! Not to mention, the approach road is like the stairway to hell x100 times! 2. Ordering food is nothing less than a nightmare either, lunch order taken en-route, dinner order during lunch, breakfast order at dinner - still they manage to mess up the orders, not once but twice! For the so called complimentary breakfast you get only bread & butter despite ordering for eggs, at dinner time they bring out the order sheet to prove that no order of the said item was placed instead of going out of the way to make the guest feel at home. Pathetic! They seem to get some kind of vicarious pleasure in antagonising their guests at this resort, very strange for people who are in the hospitality business. 3. The dining hall TV seems to be for the staff personal entertainment, decorum is a joke to these people. 4. Complained to booking partner & Mr. Chintu, Manager & Mr. Swarup Adhikary (Digante) = 0 Action taken against the indifferent staff. LESSON: Never pay rent in advance, especially if you are staying first time & most definitely to a third party. 5. Lizards everywhere in the room for company, but that's just part of experience offered free of cost by the resort. 6. Rooms much smaller & basic than what is shown in the pictures, so what you SEE IS NOT WHAT YOU GET AT DIGANTE. Beautiful property, undone by its cosmetic cottages. Your world will collapse once you set foot in the room which is reminiscent of a Mumbai Studio apartment but even smaller. This was supposed to accommodate three people but looked more like of a squalor. 7. Staff attitude & behaviour is an absolute disgrace & disservice to what could have been a picturesque & peaceful resort experience at Mandarmoni. PS: Couldn't find my phone charger once the room was cleaned so your guess is as good as mine as to its fate!
