The best place in Chalsa / Dooars to set anchor before the Wildlife Sanctuary visits (But not for those on BUDGET)... All rooms in the resort are Cottage Types, well serviced... Nice Restaurant and amenities like Swimming Pool / Sports room, Gym, watch tower, SPA etc... If you have a spare day, 1/2 day trip to Samsing, Santhalikhola, Murti river... More

If you are visiting Dooars and sinclairs fits your budget look no further. The rooms are actually individual cottages, extremely spacious, neat and comfortable overlooking lush green lawns. Clean bathrooms. The decor was a bit dated, but quite in order. You will be surrounded by green spaces all around, however one has to make short walks to the restaurant and... More
