GREAT FOR

    A great place for family get togethers, relaxed vacation with friends, romantic getaway for couples or anyone with a penchant for the heritage. The bungalow is also great for those who wish to learn a thing or two about tea while living in the lap of vintage luxury.

What we love

  • Drive in to the bungalow with manicured tea gardens on either side to say hello to the slow and relaxed life of the erstwhile British planters.
  • The heart of the bungalow is the glass verandah that has warm sitting areas set on tiled floors and oriental rugs that go back in time! This is the perfect place to enjoy a hot cup of tea or drinks in the evening or perhaps for some soul searching as well?
  • This century old bungalow with 3 delightful colonial bedrooms has air-conditioners for the summer months and heaters for the winters. Two of the rooms come with king sized beds while the third has twin beds. The ensuite bathrooms are luxuriously appointed with bathtubs, shower spaces and all the other usual suspects.
  • It’s absolutely fascinating to see eclectic pieces from the world over - wall hangings, paintings, peacock handles made in brass, a games table to name a few things that caught our eye.
  • 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!
  • You may not find a television in the bungalow but you will find a piano, a hat rack, games and a small library full of books!

What to know

  • 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.
  • Your bungalow has it’s own kitchen where scrumptious food is prepared with a whole lot of love and served by a squadron of helpers gloved in white. 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.
  • 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.
  • The pace of life here is gentle, but there’s plenty to do - take a tour of the plantations and watch the tea pickers in the gardens, visit the nearby villages, go for a day trip to watch the fresh water dolphins, and if you’re there on a Saturday, definitely go to the weekly market!

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.
