This is an exclusive property which was not as pricey as some of the others in this category are. We travelled to this place on impulse when our trip through Arunachal Pradesh had to be abandoned because of excessive rains. The place is inside a tea estate though not part of it. The estate however, can be accessed easily. The manager and his staff arranged for a trip to a nearby Mishing village and we had dinner at the house of the village President. The dinner and the conversations we had around it were fascinating. Vegetarians however, may not enjoy the dinner as it had a lot of pork dishes and locally brewed rice wine to go with it. The food at the property was also included in the price and was wonderful. We were the only guests at that time and so though we had booked one room at the Silver Tips bungalow, we had the whole bungalow at our disposal. The covered verandah is an ideal place to just sit and watch and hear the rain. Mobile networks do not work well, there is no internet or TV in the rooms. It all adds to recreate life as it used to be in a remote tea estate 150 years ago. The Saturday market nearby was also fascinating. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms were large and cosy. Go there if you want to escape.
