Popular coastal areas like the Caribbean, French Riviera, or American coasts come to mind when one thinks of a beach holiday, but did you know that India has a hidden coastal gem of its own? The seaside town of Digha, while less common for a beach holiday, is no less beautiful or delightful as a vacation spot. Found along the northern end of the Bay of Bengal, Digha is the preferred coastal town in the whole of West Bengal. Apart from beaches like the Digha Beach, Udaipur Sea Beach and Shankarpur beach that are certainly worth a visit, Digha has a variety of other attractions suitable for tourists, such as the Chandaneswar Temple for a cultural visit, or the Marine Aquarium and Research Centre (MARC) for some general education on marine biodiversity. All in all, Digha is an up-and-coming vacation spot and is especially well-suited for couples! Apart from romantic days by the beach with a loved one, tourists can also soak up the very best of nature in this quiet and quaint resort town in their quiet company. So, pack your bags, head to Digha, and have a lovely stay in any of these 10 hotels that are perfect for traveling couples!

Apart from having more than enough room for two, each room in the three-star hotel also has a balcony, from which you and your partner can enjoy a stunning garden view. Doesn’t that sound like a dream? All rooms come with their own refrigerator, private bathroom, and even a writing desk, for your ultimate comfort and utility.
Another hotel that’s on the coast, is the Masara Beach Resort in Mandermoni. It boasts of spectacular, breathtaking views of the sun, sky and sea. The charming hotel was built in a colonial-style and thus exudes romanticism and nostalgia.

The in-house restaurant offers a nice selection of Indian and Chinese dishes for those days or nights when you and your partner are too lazy to venture out for a meal.
The last of these ten listings is a four-star hotel for ultimate indulgence! From room service to an exceptional in-house restaurant, the Viceroy Beach And Spa Resort is a prime choice for an unforgettable romantic stay, especially given their choice of sea view or balcony rooms.
