We wanted a short and relaxing break in a quiet place and Sinclairs Retreat Dooars was just perfect.
The resort is built in complete harmony with nature and ideal for rest and rejuvenation. The staff are very friendly and always ready to help. They organised a trip to the forest with an elephant safari which was so much fun!
They also organised special yoga classes for us in the lawn which was very relaxing. We also took massages in the hotel's health club, and enjoyed a lot in the swimming pool.
The Manager recommended that we go gardening, so we learnt how to grow cherry tomatoes, brocolli, red cabbafe and unusual vegetables and aromatic plants. Malabar nut, basak and sevia are also grown and these are served as juice for their therapeutic properties (they served us the juice in the morning before breakfast).
The staffs' attention to detail is worth praising. They are always at your service, whatever time of the day. Even though the resort is huge, it is really well maintained. The huge parks are delightful, where you can spend time just sitting around and reading a good book.
The resort also has it's own cycling track. Unfortunately I didn't know how to cycle, but the staff actually taught me how to ride! I had a personal helper who was there to pick me up every time I fell down, and eventually she taught me how to cycle. That was really nice of her.
I had so much fun at Sinclairs Retreat Dooars, and would love to go there again. It is located in non-touristy place and is very peaceful. I'm a loyal customer to the Sinclairs Group, and they have never disappointed me!
