I had been to Rater Tara Diner Rabi Guest-house along with my family of 3 heads and taken one double bed, AC with extra mattress at ground floor though I was with the impression that room would be dark and damped with mosquitoes moving around but actually, room was sufficiently airy with adequate lights available throughout the day and rooms are well maintained, superbly cleaned and beautifully decorated. Generally we moved around Shantiniketan whole day for sightseeing and came back in the evening, got hot tea ready with veg pakoda to relax after hectic tour. Foods were simply fantastic particularly un-common items like Sukto, Bieulir Dal with Alu Postor Tarkari, Dhoker Dalna and Chitol Macher Muittha in other day and we experienced no repetition of any items during our stay for 3 nights. We have tasted delicious Bhapa Hilsa, Doi Vetki and wonderful Tel Koi (fish) was simply outstanding. Same variety of foods in Kolkata we used to pay more amounts in Bhajohari Manna & 36 Ballygunge Palace but in Rater Tara Diner Rabi Guest-house, we felt it very much reasonable. They are having two cooks namely Prasanta and Pradip, they are simply outstanding for preparing Bengali dishes, we have requested to prepare Pui-chingri and Potoler Dolma on check-out day during lunch and in our utter surprise, they served both the items, which were simply awesome. We personally thank them for keeping our request. All Staffs were always smiling, placed before us quickly whatever we ordered and we felt homely after getting their services always at our beck and call. I am a frequent traveler to Santiniketan and I tried almost all the places there but after staying here I have taken decision that henceforth, RTDR Guest House would be my permanent address during my all future visits to Santiniketan.
"Now it is time to sit quite, face to face with thee, and to sing dedication of life in this silent and overflowing leisure." - Tagore If you are looking for just some random weekend get-away then this is surely not your kind of place.However if you are blessed with a more inquisitive self and wish to immerse in a celebration of culture,tranquility and peace , then this is that "quiet little place" nestled in the arms of Shantiniketan where the presence of "the poet" is almost heartfelt and ubiquitous.The attention to detail is amazing: the murals on the boundary walls depicting lessons from "Shahaj Path" , the beautifully landscaped garden in the front, the furniture in the large balcony on the 1st floor which is locally designed, even the number plates on the rooms - all seem to be in complete harmony with the entire ambience. There is a sublime touch of lazy elegance in all the appurtenances that have been placed around ; a lot of time and attention has been invested in structuring the look and feel of this place. There is hardly anything out there which hasn't blended in with the surrounding or appears completely unwarranted. The effortless marriage of nature and serenity with expert craftsmanship is what makes this guest house truly remarkable. The rooms are nice and spacious and the support staff is exceptionally friendly and service oriented.Me and a couple of buddies went for this weekend trip and the support staff pampered us by relentlessly adhering to our requests for black coffee and tea even at odd hours. The simple Bengali food that is dished out is good and one can ask for bottled water. The unobstructed view from the balcony is great and one needs to just laze around in one of those rocking chairs after sundown and experience the solitude. It's a defining Shantiniketan moment. If the sky is clear , I would strongly recommend a late night stroll in the terrace where you can spend an hour or two stargazing and catching up with old friends or enemies. ( If you are attentive you can even hear the Duquesne whistle blowing in Laal Maati) . For those among us who have been in city pent , we don't see this kind of a night sky very often -do we ? And that kind of justifies the name . Saumya Banerjee, Chicago .
Our stay at "rater tara diner rabi"was just outstanding and brilliant. From your room -always listen robindrasangeet,always have tasty indian foods, always see beutiful flowering garden and alway be happy.
Beautiful Garden, Rooms are clean, foods are tasty
The guesthouse is very near to Santiniketan Main Campus and other important places such as Khoai, Handicrafts Fair (Saturday?s Hut), Prantik Township, Shyor Bithi Eco-park, Kopai River & Kankalitala. Entire locality is very clean and covered with big green trees but not in an isolated place and evening Baul songs (on our request it was arranged) given us real taste of Baul culture. Room was properly cleaned and well maintained, staffs were cordial & well behaved and quality and items of foods were simply praiseworthy. As per me, the prices of food were very reasonable compare to quality and quantity they served. Few Bengali items like Dhoker Dalna, Pui Shrimp, Potato-Jhinge Posto and Beulir Dal were simply very tasty and fascinating beside regular non-vegetarian items. Lastly, I must praise the taste of the management to decorate the rooms, porch, tiny dinning hall and adjoining beautiful garden maintaining the taste of Santiniketan culture.
