Kanpur's pride lies in its exotic Kamla Retreat, under the proprietary control of the Singhania family. Situated on Kanpur's Kamala Nehru Road, the beautiful estate houses a museum boasting of several archaeological relics and artefacts that date back to antiquity.
The property comprises rambling luxuriant parks and lawns, which are dotted with meandering canals with provisions of a boating spree. The retreat also has a lavish swimming pool with hi-tech facilities for producing artificial waves. The pool looks magnificent at night when it is illuminated by bright psychedelic lights.
Kamala Retreat endeavours to ensure that visitors have a complete and unforgettable trip. The estate possesses its own private zoo, portraying Kanpur's lush foliage and abundant animals. The zoo houses several species of animals, reptiles as well as birds dappled in multicoloured hues. Thus visitors need have to cross over to visit the Allen Forest Zoo in its vicinity.
The estate sprawls across several acres of lush greenery and is the city's jewel in the crown. Tourists and visitors can have a merry time picnicking, frolicking and relaxing in leisure. A very popular tourist spot, Kamla Retreat is thus swarming with tourists and their families.
However tourists and visitors have to acquire prior permission before they allowed entry. But Kamala Retreat with its platter of exotic offerings creates an irresistible temptation so that tourists eagerly obtain this special permit. The resort is very strict and severely penalizes trespassers.
