“A unique home stay in a heritage home in Odisha”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The place is about an hour and a half drive from Bhubaneswar with good road connectivity. The location is totally offbeat which makes it a very peaceful serene homestay far away from the noise and pollution of the city. This heritage palace of a former maharajah was built as a retreat and an abode from where the residents could indulge in wild life game hunting. The present descendants have tried to restore the former character of the site and also are trying to make it self sustaining with ancillary activities like fish farming etc.
We were treated with gracious hospitality and we struck a good conversation with the family who apprised us about their struggles in their fight to recapture the estate from unscrupulous people. Their courage was striking.
The stay was quite comfortable and the aura of the place was one of ancient royalty. The owners have managed to retain the heritage of the palace and are trying to make it an eco friendly stay for their guests. Development work is ongoing and plenty remains to be done .
The owner Mr Deb was very gracious to take us on an guided tour of his vast estate and his efforts to develop the estate are impressive.
On the whole a very good experience. However we found the food served to be very ordinary and a little subpar and perhaps Mr Deb could cater with a better cook and care for the guests. Otherwise nothing much to complain.
For the amenities and the graciousness however full marks. We would love to make another trip whenever the opportunity comes.

“Beautiful stay to enjoy nature and rural life”
Reviewed 9 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

I stayed with Debjit and his wide Namrata for few days and I truly loved it. They welcomed me at their house, a beautiful mansion (or better Raj castle) that they are renovating with extreme love and care. The place is extremely well furnished and clean, and the food is delicious. Debjit showed me the villages and forest in the area, cycling and walking. It's the perfect place to enjoy nature, rural life and culture and immerse yourself in a piece of India's history. I fully recommend and hope to go back soon for a bit longer.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 4 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Kila Dalijoda combines the enchantment of history with the exclusiveness of a home stay. The lodge rises in majestic splendour against the backdrop of a tree shadowed sky. The rooms are enormous and extremely clean. The home cooked food is simply fabulous. There are lovely jungle tracks and endless paths for one to cycle. The old world charm of the place coupled with the warmth and hospitality of the Singhdeo family made our trip memorable. We intend to go there again.

We stayed one week in this country villa, a very quiete place from where we had trips to most historical sites of the area. Evening we relaxed in the fresh garden and had dinner with indian natural food made of local products.
The owners are cultured persons and we had interesting conversations about indian history, religion and mitology...
