GREAT FOR

    This mansion is perfect for a relaxed and peaceful vacation with a peak into the past. It makes for a great base to explore the enchanting national parks of Gibbon and Kaziranga while also learning a thing or two about the tea industry while living close to the plantations and gardens.

What we love

  • It’s not very often that one can experience remnants of the glorious days of the past while staying just the way the most prominent family of the region lived. This grand mansion was the family villa of an eminent Assamese family, one of the richest in the tea business. Here, say hello to gracious luxury, impeccable and warm hospitality and a peak into the extravagant vintage past.
  • The grand mansion, surrounded by bamboo groves, local villages and rice fields, comes with 5 palatial bedrooms, each equipped with a fireplace, four poster bed, dressing room and en-suite bathroom. The mansion also has an exquisite drawing room with hanging chandeliers, carved period furniture, walls and corridors dotted with photographs from the past, interesting artefacts from the world over and an impressive dining area where white gloved men await to serve you delectable Indian, Continental and North Eastern cuisine in ostentatious silverware.
  • The verandahs with comfortable recliners are the best place to spend all your spare time in the shadow of the greens with a hot cup of tea and a book that’s waiting to be completed.
  • The mansion also houses a veritable museum. Do swing by it during your stay here.

What to know

  • The sweeping gardens around the mansion are often frequented by beautiful and rare birds. You’ll find them striking a pose, perching themselves on shrubs, fluttering and flying around. Walk up to the gardener and let him know you’re interested and he’ll take you to the best spots for bird watching. Look out for the Forest Owls, Pied Robins, Drongos, Emerald Doves, White-rumped Munias, Crimpson Sun-birds while there. We recommend carrying a pair of binoculars if you’re interested in some birdwatching.
  • There’s no wifi connectivity. You may want to carry your data dongles or tether from your phones should you need to check mails.
  • The mansion makes for a great base to explore the nearby Gibbon Park, the picturesque and magical island of Majauli and to the incredible national park of Kaziranga!
  • Indulge in activities that existed before the times of the internet - play a game of chess, carrom, scrabble, try your hand at croquet or fishing, go on a tea plantation tour and witness local Assamese women pluck two leaves and a bud with their nimble fingers, go on a tea tasting session and savour the strong malty flavour or cycle around the villages and markets.

    Awesome Things to do nearby

    Kaziranga National Park

    Open: October to May​; Best time to visit: November to April; Safari timings: Morning 7:00 am to 9:30 am/ Afternoon 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

    At Kaziranga National Park, nature plays out its grand tableau. At this world heritage site, you are sure to see herds of wild elephants, greedy one horned rhinos and gambolling swamp deer. If you are very lucky, you may spot a flash of black and gold - the stealthy tiger, prowling for its prey. Kaziranga also has otters, leopards, civets, porcupines, macaques, badgers, bears, sloths - and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

    Get on the back of an elephant to slowly tread the jungle and soak it in or hop on to a jeep if you wish to cover a larger area of the park in a short span of time.

    Majauli Island

    ​The swollen waters of the Brahmaputra flow around the jewel-like Majuli Island, one of the largest river islands in the world. Go for its idyllic, other-worldly landscape, stay for its Satras - cultural centres where students flock to learn the classical arts. We hate to sound like prophets of doom but erosion is sinking the island further into the river each year, so go before it vanishes!

    Hoollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary

    Open: Throughout the year

    Best time to visit: June, July, February and March

    ​Visit Hoollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary, an evergreen protected forest that’s the home of India’s only ape family – the Hoolock gibbon. The park is also teeming with other wildlife such as the gentle nocturnal loris, macaques, and an astonishing array of trees.

    Interestingly, given the high number of primates in the park, the nest of birds and their eggs are highly sought after and hence the number of birds is limited in the sanctuary. Some that you may still spot are hornbill, owl, woodpecker, green pigeon, drongo to name a few.

    Sadly, tea plantations and habitation have eaten into the forest, so go before this wealth is gone.
