Being a resident of Kolkata, Digha has always been a favorite weekend spot ever since my childhood days. But although over the course of last 20 years the hotel scenario has changed drastically in Digha. I have never found a hotel in here that provides luxury accommodations & doesn’t burn a hole in the pocket either. Digha is a place where either you find rooms for either Rs 1000/- or below a night or upwards of Rs 2500/- a night.This gaping chasm in the range of the 1000/- to 2500/- room categories needed to be addressed.
And Eureka! The idea of “Coral” was born. I was very enthusiastic about the idea of a star category accommodation that would be within the reach of a modern urban family. Then I started looking into what else was missing in the existing Digha Hotels infrastructure. I found, to my utter surprise, that even though it is frequented so much by families there was no property offering a truly family experience where there is something to be enjoyed by every member of the family.
So for starters, we created a lawn (for real kids & the kids within us!) interspersed with life size interactive elements where your inner child comes alive by means of either posing with a orangotun under a tree, posing with Chota Bheem doing mischief, sitting by a lady busy on phone, finding Mr.Rabbit from Alice in wonderland lost among mushrooms or maybe simply watching your child sliding down the trunk of an elephant in the form of a slip.
