The Srimangal Tea Resort, commonly known as BTB Resort or Bangladesh Tea Board Resort, is a place surrounded by nice natural beauty. But that is probably the only plus point of this place. If you want to spend a day with your friends or family members and stay just for one night only, that is probably OK. But for a longer stay, this is absolutely not a good choice. Let me elaborate a little why. First of all, there are many essential services missing here that a "Resort" in general will have. We stayed here for 2 days in December 2019. While stayed, apart from the wonderful scenic beauty around, it felt like we are in the midst of a government officials' colony run by slow and sluggish people. Everything here seems to work as if we are in the 1980s, which is not much of an issue actually. But the resort manager seems like the king here and every simple thing requires his permission. For example, on the first night when we ordered our dinner in the room, we were told to get permission from the resort manager(!!). This is simply not silly, but utterly disturbing. Why permission will be needed to order food in the room? This is a basic feature of any hotel or resort. We stayed in the 3 rooms Bungalow (number 15) which is, as per them the "VIP Bungalow". But we found nothing VIP specialty there. With the very basic amenities in the rooms, we did not feel we were treated as "VIP". As a matter of fact, we are not very demanding in nature, but at least there could be glasses for drinking water on the bedside tables which were not there. When we asked for that, the care-taker brought 2-3 glasses. This is how everything worked. We had to ask for almost every basic thing and only then they started to comply. The bathrooms had pretty basic toiletries. Though they had hot water in the taps, which was a relief in the cold weather in December. They provided free breakfast for only 6 persons, for the rest of the additional 3 members they charged. But the breakfast was absolutely basic (Paratha, omelet, vegetable). I am not at all complaining about the food quality or quantity, I am just expressing my surprise that how come they call it a resort and provide such a poor breakfast? The general food menu is another story. They do not have a printed or documented food menu. They actually cook in dormitory style. Probably the king resort manager decides what would be the menu for a day and everyone has no choice but to eat that. What I heard was, they were extending their resort and expanding their kitchen but that should not prevent to provide a standard food service. I must say, the chicken curry and rice we had there was wonderful. But my point is, this is a "Resort" and not a cheap one at all (BDT 15000/night + 5% service charge + 15% VAT), why there will be no other option for the guests but to eat what they just cook for everyone? About the service charge they take, they have very few resources to maintain the whole resort. And those poor caretakers always running from one bungalow to another to give their best. That came as another surprise to me as to why such a big place will have this little resources to provide service? Finally, in my opinion, other than the wonderful evening walk we had inside this place, the howling of the foxes at night and the scenic beauty inside and around it created the only value of this place. But unfortunately, scenic beauty is not everything that you pay for when you come on a vacation and stay in a resort. Sreemangal Tea Resort has to go a long way to compete with the other Resorts available in Sreemangal.

A very neat and clean place for tourist. One can make a group of 30 people or family of 10 persons to visit and enjoy the beautiful nature of tea garden and surroundings. Good swimming facilities for visitors. A must visit place for foreigners.

We had spent 2 days in the last week of June, this year. As it was heavily raining for almost all day and night long (a flood came in Sreemongol in the proximate days of our visit also) it was worth a visit to such a greenery! I am definitely recommending this tea resort and museum if anybody prefers a relaxing tour in a budget friendly resort. The area is not so huge but has a touch of minuscule hilly region, a natural touch-up of forest and your very own bungalow! *Bungalow Facilities* The bungalow was huge in size. It had two bedrooms, one big balcony, dining room, drawing room, neat and clean washrooms with bath tubs and decent amenities. Though I was quite afraid of mosquito bites, surprisingly we didn't have to face any such problem as all the doors and windows were mosquito resistant. *Car Parking* Nicest part is that you will be able to park your own vehicle in front of your bungalow. *Room services* The manager was quite good but the room service provider was horrible. They are not well trained. There is also a constraint in human resources there. *Swimming Pool* It is not huge in size. Also I have found out a lot of chemicals in the water. *Nearby Attractions* Some tea gardens, Hotel Grand Sultan and Luawachara Rain Forest are only nearby attractions. *Food* There is a restaurant which is not well maintained. One has to order their food a bit early also. But there are other restaurants nearby also. *Best Part* 1.Feel the rain with a cup of coffee and your favorite book (I was reading Alchemist back then) form the balcony! 2.Chase the deer (they claimed 22 deer in their forest) and watch the naughty monkey playing in the trees. 3.Experience a calm night with sometimes some unknown and unheard sounds from forests!
