“total relaxation”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

booked through the internet and really did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised and happy at the service we got from the people at Zurrantee. An airconditioned car was waiting to pick us up and the driver was friendly. Roads were not that good and we reached Zurrantee in the evening to find some really good tea and biscuits waiting for us. We stayed in Rongdong and the room was quite big and comfortable. We were the only people staying as it was an off season for them and the staff it seemed was always at our beck and call. The meals were all very tasty and we were served more than we could have. The lawns and the estate are maintained well but one should not compare it to hotels. The surroundings are very peaceful and I think we got more than our money's worth. Trips to samsing and labha were arranged by them at no extra cost and we were also treated to a nice cultural dance programme involving the local tribals. I shall definitely want to visit again for a short getaway from the city. Groups and families shall also like the place as the lawn is a nice place for badminton and the games room too is quite nice. Only grouse is that we would have appreciated a tv in the room after darkness. To sum up the pros and cons i would say excellent location, good service and food, friendly staff, value for money and the only con would be the manager at the resort, a guy called Ashish, but then he is hardly around

Room Tip: stay in rong dong as its has natural light and is the smallest at around 300 sq ft as the ac is most...

its the prefect holiday getaway if you're looking for solitude and peace want to escape the din and bustle of the busy metropolitan life. If sitting on the porch of a quaint little cottage, overlooking lush green tea plantations ,sipping tea and reading a book left to your own quiet musings is what you crave for then this is just the place you've been looking for. Nestled right on top of a hill, Zurrantee is more of a Cozy home stay rather than a luxurious holiday home. Do not expect 5 Star hotel style treatment or pampering here though the staff and the manager were very simple, friendly and helpful people. They do arrange for local sight seeing also the children from the nearby villages entertain you with folk songs and dance. The meals prepared by the cook was really delicious and one evening he even made us pakoras made from tea leaves... a first time and they were really mouth wateringly delectable.Loved the place, loved the atmosphere the view ,, can't wait to be back.

We had a wonderful experience at the Bungalow. We had booked four rooms for two couples plus kids, unfortunately my sister and her husband missed their flight from Delhi. Zurrantee charged us for only one room! Very friendly. The evening entertainment was very good. Staff was very hospitable. If you go to a place like this, make sure to stay for a few days at least.

We escaped to Zurantee in Doors during the Pujas. It's really far from the madding crowd, where silence is the real king. The bunglow transports you back to early 20th century and is generally well mentained. The food is excellent and the location is also superb. The service is a tad slow, but I guess you can expect this in a laid back place like the Doors. Two caveats; if you are part of the package, anything outside that is expensive (Rs. 400 is a meal price per person). Also, stock up on snacks and/or drinks, you don't get anything once you're in the resort. (You do get soft drinks at an exhorbitant rate).

Large and airy rooms. Good food. Well maintained lawn .Very nice place to stay with your family.I had booked the 3N 4D package inclusive of all meals, stay and tours- it was real value for money.
Ideal place to unwind and relax since mobile connection is not very dependable.
The staff was very kind and helpful.
