I stayed in Barodabri (Malangi) forest guest house for two nights. Had good experience .

Good side:-

Just in front of the Jungle . Basically if you walk the back side of this resort then the jungle starts
Campus is big , well decorate like big park with children play areas .
Staffs are good & helpful.
Got Elephant Safari . Also took Car Safari. Our luck was not good. Not much animal view except bison
They arranged Tribal Dance in night which was awesome experience

Bad side:-
Food quality really needs improvement.
I stayed in Jayanti room which is know as CM’s room as CM stayed there twice. But I will say there are much better room on the 1st floor in front of Jayanti where you will get Balcony as extra.
Our room was really bad, small, paint was out. Most critical was the smell . it was really bad . Need renovation for sure.

We checked in to Malangi in first week of December.This property is maintained by West Bengal state forest department.
It was our first destination in Dooars Trip.We booked this property for elephant Safari as they have one dedicated elephant for the guest only but we did not get as on 11th & 25th they have scheduled vaccination date.So we opt for Jungle safari.Both safari goes to Chilapata forest...which is again part of East Jaldapara.This is known as one of the dense wood forest where Jaldapara is grass forest.Nice property and excellent staff but they made one mistake they charge me 160 inr for two roti.
Behind this property there is forest & Malangi river which is added advantage.This is must see destination.
Property could be maintained better way but not.

We have been there only for elephant safari but before you go n book Confirm the dates.

How to reach :
Get down to Hasimara station from there its 7 km .Cab fare 300 Inr.its near Hasimara Air base.

Food cost :
Veg meal is 100 , chiken 100 , Local fish 80 ,Duck egg 50 which can be added to veg meal.
Roti is 9 INR.Food quality is 2.5/5 average.

Room :
Rooms are pretty clean and huge they have 8 room 4 , 2500 which is in first floor 4, 2300 in ground floor.Each room is named after each river in Dooars.
Our Honorable Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee prefer to stay in "Jayanti" we luckly got the same room its excellent.

From my view it is the best way to explore jaldapara and chilapata range, staying in this beautiful hotel. I stayed in the room named jayanti probably the best room. This room is good with more spacious bathroom,with all modern amenities included. The lodge is very near to the forest with a river just beside.
The food is very good, specially Boroli fish curry is just awesome. All staffs are very good and supportive. They arrange the Elephant Safari and jungle Safari for us.
We stayed there two days with my little daughter and feels very homely,...Joy, Bikash daju and tubaida you guys are great. I will definitely visit again..
(Strongly recommend because of,this lodge has its own Elephant Safari)

We booked for one day deluxe ac room where bathroom is more specious than room. Room and bathroom were very clean. A attached balcony is also there. Food quality is good. All staffs are very cooperative and gentle. They arranged elephant safari for us. They made all permission which was needed for safari. That was memorable for us. We saw one horn rihno very near distance. The lodge extended their rooms which will be more good and nice view from room.

West Bengal Forest Development corporation's Tourist lodge at Hasimara is one of the jewel in the crown in this lesser known part of West Bengal.
It is a conglomeration of Nice location near the Jaldapara Reserve Forest (good connectivity by rail and National Highway)- Fine decorated, furnished accommodation and good food. Ideal for family vacations. Elephant ride and jungle safaris start from the Tourist Lodge it self. We found the staff very helpful and faithful.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms are better, do not opt for dormitory
