“Go to Tumsong before you die!”
Reviewed May 12, 2011

Tumsong has had very few tourists as yet, and we were treated as if we were very important tea buying clients of the estate, escorted everywhere by the charming Manager, taken on a tour of the spotless factory and on a glorious walk downhill through the estate to the banks of the river far below. (They think of everything - a car was there to take us uphill!) Tea was served whenever we ever appeared near our lovely room in the Manager's Bungalow. G&T's and little snacks offered on the verandah. Delicious dinners and lunches served by Durran - who literally ran to make sure we had everything we needed. One evening the estate laid on folk dancing outside round a huge bonfire - we felt we were part of the history of what must be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Surrounded by mountains, make sure you take enough memory for your camera!

Having experienced Glenburn, our expectations of a tea retreat was a lot higher and Tumsong Tea Retreat was a disappointment. Food served while tasty was homely and ordinary compared to the gourmet experience that we had at Glenburn. Service was more like a home stay which was acceptable but for the price that we paid, it was expensive

We spent three nights the with three young kids and absolutely loved eve minute. The place is worth the three hours travel time from Bagdogra, West Bengal. The surroundings, the house, food, amazing landscape and above all the wonderful and personal service makes this a dream retreat. It is true relaxation or if you want, plenty of opportunities to hike, walk by the tea plantation or explore the areas around. Breathtaking view of the Himlalaya range, beautiful snow capped mountains that blend with the dark green colour of the tea plantation. Gupta the Manager and his staff do a fantastic job attending to every need you have, take you around the plantation and factory and teach you what you need to know about tea!

The walk down the tea plantation and picnic by the river is a must! The views on the way to and from the retreat are truly amazing.

Accommodation simple but clean and very comfortable huge beds and plenty of hot water. Food is truly spectacular!

What we loved about the place is the fact that they only have five rooms, you are guaranteed a very personal service.

Highly recommended with or without kids!
