I am on my way to Tajpur this weekend!

Yes! and it is the season of the World Cup. I hope the hotel there has cable connection and Sony Six.

But its always better to miss the initial matches than when the tournament heats up.

All the best, the weather also is getting pleasant for a sea side holiday. I had been there for the second time about a week ago. which hotel have you booked? Please let us know once you come back from your trip and share your experience.

I hope the weather is good there.

I am staying a Hotel Sabuj Saikat.
I will share the some pictures on my return and perhaps some route updates as well.

I recently drove to Tajpur in my Grand I10 (Auto). It was a fun drive; took me around 3 and a half hours while going (we started at 5:30AM) and return took around 4 and a half hours with a mandatory pit stop at sher e punjab. We stayed at sabuj saikat, a nice resort and found the beach to be more fun than Mandarmani.

Hi Folks, planning a family trip to Tajpur over the upcoming weekend and planning to stay at sabuj saikat, courtesy your rave reviews! Wanted to check if the cottages remain cool during the day as the snaps suggest these have roofs made of asbestos. Is the power situation good enough for the air conditioner to keep running throughout?


Also, does the route to the resort pass through any portion of the beach with the attendant risk of the tyres getting stuck in sand?

Itís a great place, you will enjoy the beach. Firstly, although the roof of the cottages are not concrete, they mostly have a heat insulation layer of thermocol above the false ceiling, at least we never felt too hot, but yes, do book an air conditioned room, do not take risk of non AC as the weather in this upcoming weekend seems to remain very hot. Power situation is decent, on our recent trip in early May 2018, we faced just a night of power cut in 3 days, that too because of extreme thunderstorms. But mostly all resorts have decent power backup. We didnít face even 1 hour without power.
Secondly, the road is pucca Road right from where you leave the highway till 10-15meteres from the resort. There is no driving through beach on tajpur. The beach is pristine and well kept. Even if you get a chance somehow to drive on the beach, it is my request to not do so, as it harms the beautiful red crabs.
Enjoy your weekend, and do post pictures.
