Raichak-on-Ganges has completed 25 years and it gives me immense pleasure in looking back to the journey of this much-loved destination. What started as an initiative to create an idealistic rural hideaway has not only become a point of reference for holistic leisure tourism today but also an address that you can call home.
This journey has only been possible because of all who embraced this idyllic destination and made it a part of their cherished memories. Today, Raichak means many things to many people.
Only 51km from Kolkata, for some Raichak is the perfect luxury weekend getaway from the daily stress, pollution and cacophony of the city.
For others, it’s the address of indulgence — be it at the spa, restaurants or the verdant riverside to enjoy the charms of a laid-back life.
It is also the choice for relaxed business conferencing, family functions, events, promotions as well as destination weddings. For some it also represents an oasis to come back to for unwinding in nature and doing nothing!
Then there are premium country homes, where nature and modern architecture blend to offer a peaceful repose of serenity and exclusivity, beyond one-off vacations.
A major economy driver supporting 1,000-plus local people, Raichak-on-Ganges has evolved into a larger-than-life destination, into an emotion, an experience. As the gentle winds sweep over from the Ganges flowing by, caressing all and one like a loving mother, come soak in the solace of Bengal’s most rich and bountiful land of love and light.
