The in­te­ri­ors of the cot­tages are hand-painted by a lo­cal artist and the fur­ni­ture is made with the ex­ten­sive use of lo­cal crafts­man­ship and ma­te­rial in some cases. This Tiger Camp is one of the world’s unique re­sort des­ti­na­tions, be­cause there is so much to ex­pe­ri­ence.

It is that land, where past lives in present, as sev­eral writ­ers have writ­ten about this mys­tic place at length. One can also re­lax and en­joy the sun whilst cruis­ing or at the re­sort. Tours round the Sun­der­bans re­gion or spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties such as wildlife sa­faris, dingy boat rides, crab catch­ing, etc. are also or­gan­ised. The re­sort has a pri­vate lake for mi­gra­tory bird view­ing within the premises, spe­cial bird­ing walks in and around the re­sort, and or­gan­ises vis­its to the lo­cal vil­lages for cul­tural in­ter­ac­tions.
