We, at the Tourism Department and WBTDCL, are trying to ensure 1,000 (yes, ONE THOUSAND!) comfortable rooms for you across our lovely State of West Bengal. Rooms that will confirm to 3-Star standards at least. It’s not an easy task. And it will take time. So, with great regret, we have to close some of our properties during the months ahead. We will try not to shut down all the properties at the same time. Indeed, we will try as far as possible not to shut down any property entirely even during the process of upgradation. Let us try for the best solution. Meanwhile, do check our websites for availability before planning a holiday with us. We know that this process will cause inconvenience and disappointment. Please do bear with us. We seek your patience and your support. We do promise that we will work as fast as possible so that your favourite destinations are open again, with better facilities, as soon as possible – and certainly by the Pujo holidays.
