We stayed over there for a night while traveling from Gangtok to Bagdogra Airport. The resort is practically located away from civilization. The resort is spread over a large area. The cottages are big, spacious and well maintained. Bathrooms are also clean and not bad. They don't serve food in the rooms due to the size of the property but... More

We, as a family, with our four and a half year old daughter, stayed at this property from 1st-5th of October, 2014 and spent the puja holidays there. A beautiful property with sprawling lawns amidst tea-gardens, with cute cottages adding to its serene beauty. Rooms were quite large and comfortable with decent washroom. Solar-geyser facility is appreciable. Whats best, this... More

A beautiful property in midst of tea gardens on Dooars hills. A great place to unwind and in case you love reading there is a library too. Enjoy reading in the lap of nature.

Beautiful sprawling property that has been maintained fairly well. Two huge playgrounds - one for general junta, one for kids (the latter was not in good shape - grass needed cutting, playground facilities like see-saw, slides etc needed repair). - Food was strictly average, both in terms of quality and variety. The included breakfast buffet was very ordinary indeed. Bar... More

Very good place to unwind yourself from day to day hassle. What I love most was the approach roads, whether through Gorumara Reserve Or Siliguri Mall Road or through Alipurduar they are absolute delight for a drive enthusiast. A trip to Samsing/Santhali kholay is a must specially during the orange blooming time as they have lots of orange orchards. During... More
