Amazing resort on the banks of Hooghly in a laid back setting - the setting sun was one of the most romantic sights I have seen in years. Rooms were large with elegant comfortable interiors. The restaurants are huge and the food is mouth watering with amazing flavors - just that the service is a bit slow. The most amazing thing is the kind of activities you can do - swimming, carom, video games, bow & arrow, paddle boating - amazing place to spend quality time with friends and family. Waiting to visit there again!

I have been here before and this place is really excellent for a quick getaway from Kolkata. The location is conveniently close to Kolkata yet once you get there, the city seems far away. The rooms, the grounds, the service - are all very comfortable indeed barring the food which, somehow, does not measure up to the rest.

A major issue, however, is the revised check-in and check-out timings. You are expected to check in at 6 pm in the evening and check out at 4 pm in the afternoon! Firstly, this implies that they need at least 2 hours to prepare the room for the next guest and that's 1 hour more than some of the best hotels in town. Secondly, this meant that I wouldn't be able to get in a full days work on the check-in date and the check-out date if I was to check out at 4 pm. Much as I like the place it is, therefore, no longer a quick getaway unless it's a weekend.

It's an excellent resort far away from the maddening crowd of the city. The view from the resort is amazing n close to nature... Resort staff is helpful but food is not upto the mark n menu is very limited. The best part of the resort - the view from d resort, n activities for kids n adults. 1 or 2 night stay is best to enjoy with family n relax. Plus point is they have amazing spas.

We had gone to Raichak during the Holi this year. Really this was a memorable trip I had along with my friends. The locale and the ambience was immaculate. Be it the children and the adults everyone had a gala time. I would recommend this place to all the travellers.

Ffort Raichak is a star property situated on the bank of River Hooghly. The river meets the Bay of Bengal ahead. The hotel has excellent rooms, view, food, spa, gym, swimming pool, wifi is chargeable. It is having an awesome night view of the property & one must stay there with family. Excellent staff, room service & much more, go there to feel it.

A very good destination, away from the city and still very near to the city. A lot of activities for all age groups. The food is also very good. Room service and outlook of the resort is also remarkable. Overall it is enjoyable destination. I would like to visit again.

Formerly a Dutch fort, later on taken by British. Now belongs to Raddison group. This is a wonderful place to spend time with friends and family in weekend. Location is right at the Ganges. Though rooms have a wet look in rainy season but overall this is a good property to spend two days. The restaurant at the 1st floor level is overlooking the Ganges and one can sit long hours here. Recommended for people coming to Kolkata and want to stay away from the city bustling life.

There are a lot of possible activities we only tried a few. Unfortunately we were looking forward to the cruise but it was not available on the day we were there, we did play chess on the large chessboard ( about 2 foot chessmen). I went cycling by the side of the Ganges. We played carom and TT while it was raining. There is also snooker and billiards. Boating is available but the sun was initially too hot and later it started to rain, hence we did no go out on the paddle boats. Same was the case for the mini golf. Food was excellent. We loved the Orient especially the pan fried shrimp, the pork I had was also quite good and soft. The continental cuisine was also very nice and the Indian was of course good. On the whole an enjoyable stay.

It was a fabulous experience and truly a rejuvenating trip. We had a great time there. Overall the location, ambience, presentation, exceeded my expectations. Would recommend my friends and relatives to spend their leisure time there. A great weekend getaway! We stayed at river view room of Ffort Raichak & Ffort suites which is great for nature lover.

I had been to Radisson fort in Raichak in the month of June with my family and stayed for three days. Welcome drink was provided. The location is beautiful. The appearance of the hotel is excellent. The price of the hotel was very high. The service was very good. Food was costly.Activities were provided.
