These hotel is a renovated fort. And it doesn't seem nothing less than a 'fort' as the name suggests. Resplendent, soothing, peaceful environment with lush green lawns, boating and a huge swimming pool for the family. But The rooms are not well well maintained and well facilitate, no WiFi. But you can enjoy the spacious balcony and offer a great view of the Ganges helping one connect with nature. The Restaurants are a bit expensive but the food served makes up for it. Overall, the hotel seems perfect for a family weekend, just a bit costly if you book it regularly. Overall if you want a great relaxation in the weekend this is the best place near Kolkata.

I had been to this place on 2nd week of April to attend my friend's wedding and stayed here for 3 days. I was so happy and excited to have been got this hotel to stay since because it was best with everything starting from its outer look like the rooms were so big and spacious. They had balconies which gave a clear view of river and such a nice cool breeze. Food provided by hotel was too delicious especially the morning breakfast as macaroni that was so yummy and they served the food in very standard way. I didn't face even a single problem in the hotel and all amenities such as high speed WiFi, TV and other amenities like geyser was provided. The hotel staff are very cooperative and they speak in very polite and decent way and are very professional. Coming to the price of the hotel it was bit high and since it was wedding of my friend he had made my pre booking but trust me I really liked the hotel with such a rich environment with a beautiful river view and its services I wish I would get the chance to stay in this same hotel when I visit this place next time.

The fort is just beside the river Ganges and so close that if you stand at room balcony, you will feel like standing on the river itself. Also the food is excellent as like the behaviour of the staff, so friendly. The hotel itself is a place to explore. It was originally a fort once upon a time which later converted to hotel.

It was a weekend and we were looking for just a day out when we came across the day out package offered by Ffort-Raichak. It was a family picnic and we were 9 people. We booked the package a week before our journey. On that particular day after a hectic journey of 2 hours we finally reached the Ffort-Raichak and it was amazing at a glance.

We were cordially welcomed by the manager at the desk along with a cosy welcome drink. After sometime we were served snacks comprising assorted pakoras (veg). It was okay if not that great but the ambiance was really great.

Then we start exploring the entire location till we got the call for lunch and it was really awesome, I must say. Loads of items starting from Lamb salads to pineapple pie, especially the desserts were yummy.

Towards the evening at around 5 pm (can't remember the exact time) we went for a cruise ride on the Ganges. Though there was not a single life boat in the cruise which I didn't quite appreciate. After an hour long journey we came back to the Ffort and finally started for home at around 7 pm after a round of tea and cookies. It was a perfect family trip and I would like to visit the place again.

The Ffort is a riverside resort on the bank of river Hooghly. It is located about 1 kms away from Raichak Ferry Ghat. We stayed in the presidential suite. The private terrace gave a good view of the garden and the river. Rooms were spacious and well maintained. Food was good.

Pros: Nice planned room (we stayed in garden view room of 1st floor) Room has hot kettle and tea bags etc. Garden in well-curated with small water body overlooking the ganges. Breakfast buffet is well-planned and versatile. Poolside costumes are available on rent (110 for one time). Pool is open from 7AM to 8PM.

Cons: Check/in and check/out is 5PM and 4PM. Pool is rather small and unshaded. Activities are not maintained and unavailable. Buffets for lunch/dinner are not certain (available only when authorities pleases). The authorities dont let you enter the whole area (eg the ganga kutir remains unaccessible even if though it is part of the same property - but we saw ganga kutor guests seated by our pool -- totally unfair) If you visit under their summer offers you get treated like some outsider without any given facilities.

Stayed here on my visit to Kolkata and enjoyed it. The resort is located on the banks of river Hooghly and is a 20 minutes drive from the Diamond Harbour. We stayed in the suite rooms with a view of River Hooghly. The swimming pool was good in size with changing rooms nearby. Buffet breakfast had good options.

If you are tired of your city-life and are looking for a relaxing time then The Ffort is your answer. Our weekend visit to the forest helped us overcome our tiredness. The fresh breeze from the Ganges beside the hotel felt very good. It is basically a luxury hotel with very comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant.

There is opportunity for many activities like indoor and outdoor game areas, swimming pool and boating facilities. The Fort has also a beautifully designed landscaped garden spreading over a large area. Women can indulge in luxurious spa session in the uniquely designed spa area of the hotel. Overall, the experience was very nice for us as a couple. You can also lookout for discounts that hotel keeps constantly advertising.

The visit to this awesome property was for a weekend to relax. The pool area was great and well-maintained adjoining the banks of the river. The property is spread on huge area and has a remarkable landscaping. The complimentary breakfast had many things to offer.
