GREAT FOR

    The perfect place for a small family or 2 couples to experience a vacation in a working tea plantation. Great place to relax and unwind away from the humdrum of city life.

What we love

  • Assam is known the world over for its strong black tea and a stay in this bungalow is the best way to learn all about it! Saunter through the tea gardens, watch the colourfully clad women carefully picking two leaves and a bud and tossing it over their shoulders in locally made woven baskets, visit the factory that’s located a short drive away, sample the tea, and at the end of the day, you’ll know where and how your morning cuppa comes from.
  • The two bedroom bungalow, decorated with Oriental wall hangings and furnishings, comes with a lush green lawn dominated by an age old tree, a screened verandah, lounge area, dining room, kitchen and utility area and 2 twin bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. When you stay here, flip through the pages of the past that are full of interesting stories of times gone by.
  • The pace of life here is slow and it’s no surprise then that food holds a prime spot, not just now but also back in the days of the tea planters. Gordon Ramsay, a British celebrity, included an Assamese dish called the fish tenga amongst one of his 100 favourite recipes from across the world and aired it on BBC! You may want to try this when you’re there, amongst other delicious preparations.
  • If you’re a foodie, we highly recommend having a formal Assamese dinner served on kahi (plates) and bati (bowls) made of a mixture of brass and iron.

What to know

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at a central glassed restaurant that looks like an old English tea-room with bright cane furniture and calm green table linens. While breakfast is the regular fare of Continental and Indian breakfast, lunch and dinner are interesting Anglo-Indian fused preparations. Over time, authentic British preparations have been carefully fused with Indian Assamese flavors resulting in dishes that make you want to ask how it was cooked!
  • Talk about unique experiences - arrive at the evening tea party not on foot but on a majestic elephant who has just toured you through the local villages, bamboo groves across the babbling brooks! This is one experience you’re bound to remember for a long time to come!
  • Walk on the fresh grass in the front lawns, play a round of golf or tennis, go on long scenic walks or ride a bicycle through the local villages and markets! Days can be filled with activities that are usually missed in our otherwise busy city lives.
  • The gamboling monkeys play peak a boo through the day, in search for left over food and striking gadgets. Keep your stuff safely in the room when you step out.

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.

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.

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!
