Its transformation from a little coastal hamlet to a popular beach getaway has seen several hotels in Digha mushroom up. A top pick of honeymooners from Kolkata aside from young weekenders, Digha has scaled the popularity chart for its elaborate sandy shores, a dreamy lineup of Casuarina trees, gorgeous sunset scenes and an old church that is a nod to its British heritage. About 187 kilometre from Kolkata in the East Midnapore district, Digha hotels crowd the sea face of its most iconic landmark, the Old Digha Beach. Whatever your reason for visiting this sun and sand destination, you will never be short of some of the best hotels in Digha to choose from.
As you plan your Digha vacation, we help you sift through some popular hotels in Digha that cater to a spectrum of travellers.
You can find a great many hotels at old Digha beach - Digha’s oldest locality. But the heavy soil erosion of the recent years has led to a swathe of the beach tipping into the sea, subsequently making way for a new location, the New Digha Beach. Unlike the boulder-strewn, concrete-stepped old beach, this new address of the young and the romantic is better maintained, cleaner and certainly bigger - all within two kilometres of each other. The Casuarina groves that run the length from the Old Digha Beach to the new one add to the drama of the setting and extend into a perfect canvas for a breathtaking sunset.
A significant number of hotels are concentrated in the Digha Barrister Colony Road close to the old beach, just as the more newer constructions are centered around the New Digha Beach. While Digha has a range of accommodation options across every category, most of it caters to the budget traveller.
Honeymooners from West Bengal and neighbouring Odisha find a haven in Digha’s lovely coastal setting, its long stretch of ochre sand, the shallows fit for a swim, and the innumerable entertainment options on the beach like banana boat rides among others. But anymore than the presence of one the country’s largest marine parks and acres of unspoilt Casuarina wilderness, Digha is dangerously pocket-friendly. Digha gets overcrowded in the winter months spanning from December to February. There was a time when a horde of its smaller hotels including several shacks in the old beach area succumbed to the sea due to storms and heavy soil erosion. But since then Digha has found a better haunt in the New Digha Beach where a lot of more recent constructions are centered.
Hotel New Classic Inn in the New Digha area is a brief walk (about 10 minutes) to the New Digha Beach. The hotel’s 91 rooms across various categories, are tastefully furnished, and comes with a well-maintained swimming pool, kids play area complete with swings and slides, a gymnasium, and a multi-cuisine restaurant. Easily among the top hotels in Digha near popular landmarks such as the sea beach, New Classic Inn is spacious, comfortable and value-for-money. Hotel Pearl International on the Sea Beach Road in New Digha has well-furnished, air-conditioned rooms, a multi-cuisine restaurant, a rooftop garden, swimming pool, and gymnasium and an advantageous location. A stone’s throw from the sea beach, you can head out on a stroll whenever you feel like, visit the local market or go boating on the Amarabati Lake. There are no star hotels in Digha, or for that matter, luxury hotels in Digha because it caters predominantly to tourists on budget looking for a brief stay before heading back to Kolkata.
After the Old Digha Beach fell into disuse and the New Digha Beach transformed into the newest hub, a glut of budget hotels in Digha came up around it. Most of them at about 1000 to 1500-odd metres from the beach and around the lush landscape of the Amarabati Park. These hotels offering basic lodge and board aside from proximity to the sea, a few seafood restaurants and a lovely park centered around a lake, are best suited to the young student-crowd from Kolkata and nearby Balasore district in Odisha.
Cygnett Lite Digha in New Digha, about 900 metres from the beach is quite popular with the young college-and-office-going crowd from Kolkata. An economy hotel that offers spacious accommodation options with clean rooms and modern amenities aside from an on-site multi-cuisine restaurant, a fitness centre among others is only a couple of kilometres from Digha’s Marine Aquarium, and the Nehru Market. Hotel Le Roi too is a good bet for travellers to Digha on a shoestring. Located in the New Digha neighbourhood, just a kilometre from the beach, provides spartan lodging, daily breakfast service, good internet access, and an on-site restaurant where you can sit down to a meal of fish and rice. An alternate option on the Barrister Road of Old Digha is Hotel Dolphin, a quick 10-minute walk from the beach. While the accommodation is quite basic, the hotel grounds are pretty lush, what with a lovely park that has slides and a few chairs strewn around and its proximity to Digha’s foremost tourist attraction, the Marine Aquarium. All these hotels are in a radius of 3-4 kilometres from the Amarabati Park, the Digha Science Centre, the Marine Park, and more importantly, the SBSTC Bus Depot.
Though Digha may no longer ring with Warren Hastings’ idea of ‘Brighton of the East’ because most of its old beach today is far from idyllic, what with concrete steps and large boulders used to hold it together. There are still hotels aplenty in its Barrister Colony neighbourhood that are at spitting distance from the beach and a bunch of touristy sightsee spots in the vicinity. Hotel Cosy Inn, for instance, is easily among the hotels in Digha in famous localities such as the Barrister Colony. You have basic lodging ideal for young couples and students travelling in groups over a weekend. Landmarks such as the Marine Aquarium and the Nehru Market are each a kilometre from the property. Even closer to the Old Digha Beach is the Digha Tourist Lodge that offers cheap accommodation in its spartan rooms that are clean and spacious. Hotel Sea Wind and Hotel Tulip in the Barrister Colony are among other economical choices.

While Digha has its share of spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter, with a rather sultry summer (about 37 degree Celsius) raging April onwards through June largely avoided by the tourists. The monsoon months between July and September too sees very little footfalls because the rains heighten humidity levels with lashing rains derailing sightseeing plans. Come October and activities begin to gather steam in Digha and by the second part of December when the winter is in full swing (about 15 degree Celsius) all the way until end February, the beach destination is heaving with tourists. The hotels run to capacity, the shacks tirelessly rustle up seafood fares, and the beach is perennially crowded.
