Description

This beautiful Mansion was once an exclusive hunting resort of Raja Jyoti Prasad Singh Deo, King of Panchakote Raj (West Bengal) in the eastern part India. Now converted into a very beautiful, eco friendly heritage homestay by his descendents. This two-storied mansion is built in laterite stone, is situated close to the city of Cuttack in Odisha, near the forest and hills of Dalijoda range, which gives a scenic backdrop to the palace.

Two large water bodies in the foreground gives it a serene touch and tourists can enjoy an alfresco dinner next to the water on a moon-lit night, organized especially for you. This former hunting lodge is built like a chateaux inspired by European styles with its arched windows and doors fitted with multi-coloured glass.

Presently, this property is maintained by descendants of the erstwhile king. They have kept the property natural and wild, without disturbing its very essence and with great effort are renovating this mansion to its original

Travelers are offered a real heritage home stay with delicious traditional, home-cooked food made by the members of the family. We organize a close look at Odisha's old temples, cult and culture, art & craft as well as serene tribal village life with their Haats or weekly markets and cock fights.

On request, we also organize trekking by foot or by cycle in the nearby forests and power boat ride on river Mahanadi. The place is a haven for anglers. Odisha's best locations for Angling and Sportfishing are located next to the property on the river Mahanadi famous for all types of exotic indian carps, snakeheads catfish, especially goonch, wallago attu, chitala, etc.

The area is a source of great attraction for scholars who like to study many different species of moths & other insectivora during the monsoons season.

The Golden triangle of Puri, Konark and Bhubaneswar offers incredible insight into Odisha's past and present. It is rich in history with its beautiful temples in Konark and Puri. The Puri chariot festival attracts millions of tourists within India and outside during the second week of July every year. Odisha is a place that instantly relaxes you. Its vibrant people, their art & culture, tribal life, unique beaches,forests and wildlife offers tourists a wide range of experiences. Odisha offers a very moderate to hot climate round the year except for the months of Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb when the temp.cool off during the winters. The region experiences heavy monsoon spells during the three months of July/ Aug / Sept. Odisha is a great holiday destination for those who want to see and have an incredible India experience.

“Kila Dalijoda - I wouldn't want to have missed it....”

Reviewed 26 May 2013

I was going to do quite a different tour through Orissa, but when a friend suggested some alterations and a stay in Kila Dalijoda, I followed his advice and never regretted it (only that he didn't suggest to stay two or three nights instead of only one!): a beautiful, peaceful pleace in great surroundings, a very beautiful room, very clean and offering a grea atmosphere. Fantastic and varied freshly made meals. But the best is the host family: the young couple is doing their utmost to make you feel well and at home. They seem to have a very good feeling for what you wish to have at any moment, they speak an excellent english and are very knowledgeable. On top they are very environmentally aware, a rare thing in India and open to suggestions and new things. And though they are originally from a different place and a very different upbringing, they are very committed to the villagers around and seemingly appreciated by them. Being there, you shouldn't miss any of the hiking walks or outings suggested by them, and definitely you have to see the show of the village dancing group. My stay at Kila Dalijoda was definitely the highlight of my last trip to India!

“enchanting stay to discover true Orissa”

Reviewed 16 May 2013

Very pleasant stay - Very Good cooking - Very comfortable room - Very interesting discussions to understand the country - Wonderful visit of tribal village - Very quiet place with a lot of things to discover in the countryside

“Great Experience”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

It's a start-up property with one room only till date but it has a good potential as the family is working hard to make their guests happy.The location of the Kila is very peaceful and far enough away from any disturbance to have a rare noise-free experience.The food is home cooked and hence fresh and tasty.Exploring the surrounding jungle and unspoiled villages with the knowledgable owner can be a great experience.
