We have by far experienced many types of stay from normal nature camps to luxury hotels, Resort. But there are set of people who are really look for some innovative stay. From that point of view this newly built container homestay will definitely give you a goosebump to at least experience this unique concept once.
There are 15 million “out-of-service” shipping containers in the world and we only used 04 of them to build Eastern India’s first Container Resort / Homestay. Built from steel shipping containers that you often see loaded on trucks, trains and ships ferrying goods, these re-cycled containers have been completely reconditioned with suitable insulation and all modern facilities to make the coziest and most comfortable rooms you would find anywhere. Decked up with all modern amenities like Air Conditioners, Geysers, Televisions, Couches, Comfy beds, Wardrobes and whole lot of in-room surprises, our rooms are simple adorable.
