    A very quiet location off the beaten path, with monkeys running all around and the back gate leading right on to the tea plantation, or tea garden as they call it. Each bungalow has its own charm and garden; ours had 2 rooms and there was one other person in the other room for one night but otherwise we had the whole house to ourselves along with the two maids who looked after us. Delicious eals are included and are served in another building nearby, but "bed tea" (in the morning) and "afternoon tea" were both served to us in our room. Very old world and relaxing. Tea tasting is also an option.

    Room Tip: All the bungalows are nice. The Heritage Bungalow is amazing but very expensive.

    The heritage bungalow is luxurious. My favourite spot was the huge verandah where we sank into large comfortable chairs and drank endless cups of steaming Assam tea. The house was decorated with lots of interesting china & curios; the library is specially good for browsing around. The bedrooms are huge and the bathrooms are the size of a Bombay's studio apartment, with excellent fittings. We were specially charmed by the thoughtful little touches that made it seem like home. For instance, not only was a music system available in the living room, but there was an eclectic selection of music cd's too. We found toothpicks in the bathrooms too. And every morning, even without asking, tables & umbrellas were set out on the lawn and stacked away come dusk.

    The wonderful staff spoiled us rotten. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had to urge them to take a break after assuring them we could take care of ourselves for the rest of the night.

    Sadly even paradise is not perfect! Our group was taken aback and when we had unexpected guests for dinner one night. Apparently the manager had arranged for them to escape a rather noisy group in the common dining room and sent them over to dine with us at the bungalow, without informing us about it. We thought this rather high handed, as none of us would have said "no" had we been asked. Our visitors must've sensed our consternation too and felt quite awkward about it.

    Also the boat ride down the Jai baroli river is a rip off! For the 13200/- that we were charged for 6 people, we expected more than being cramped in one rubber dingy, sitting upright on slim wooden planks for 2 hours and having lunch (which took about an hour to get ready as we watched our crockery being washed in the river) while standing around on the shore. A few folding chairs would not have been remiss. We feel that if Wild Mahseer is promoting this ride, it should have a printed tariff and encourage the operators to improve the quality of their service. And not to leave trash on the banks; which are beginning to be visible.

    Yet all said and done, the serenity and olde world charm of Wild Mahseer ruled the day. I would definitely like to revisit and the next time, i will stay on longer.

    Room Tip: If you're traveling in from one of the metros, don't try and reach Wild Mahseer the same day, as door to door it could be as much as 12 hours+. Stay overnight at Gauhati , leave early morning and get to the resort for lunch. In winter, try and book the orange pekoe bedroom which has more sunlight & air. The other large bedroom faces the garage & drive way & has less sun.

    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.

    Room Tip: The heritage bungalow is expensive and is currently being renovated. Silver tips is a good choice especially if the property is not very crowded.

    Determined to find somewhere different to celebrate some of our group's 60th birthdays, 19 friends and family from Australia and the UK ranging in age between 19 and 70+ met at Wild Mahseer for a magical 10 days of celebrations. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel not only like honoured guests but also friends of the family. Assam is off the usual tourist trial for Aussies and Brits so while we felt adventurous on the one hand, on the other, we were so well looked after and the accommodation and grounds were so beautiful that we felt we had arrived in paradise. The Heritage Bunglalow was spectacular, with sumptuous furnishings and books, photo albums and curiosities to ponder over when sipping on endless cups of wonderful locally grown tea. We would have spent more time relaxing but every day was a new adventure - wandering round the colourful local market, rafting down the Jia Bholori River, an early morning elephant trek in Kaziranga National Park, a visit to a tea plantation and factory, attending a service and dancing in a local monastry, a shopping trip for silks and curios in Tezpur, bird watching at dawn, visiting a local organic farm, witnessing Bihu dancing, cultural exchanges (dancing and singing) in local Mising and Nepali villages, buying wonderful fabrics woven by Mising women, and much more. Every day a beautiful breakfast, and every evening a feast when we returned from our day's exertions. An amazing experience for one and all. Thank you all at Wild Mahseer for a holiday of a lifetime

    When the daily grind gets too much, head out to Wild Mahseer ... it’s a resort in the middle of nowhere in Tezpore, Assam. This resort is a must if your idea of vacation sounds like any of these:
    (a) To walk with your girl down an aisle flanked by high timber trees with the moonlight seeping through the canopy. You stop, turn, and do a little dance with little amphibians from the nearby ponds as the only spectators.
    (b) To sit on a veranda of a wonderfully restored English Planter's Bungalow, sipping bourbon and reading Mark Twain. The odd glance away from the books to reflect lets you soak in across acres of greenery.
    (c) To drive by gorgeous mountain rivers and find your spot of solace, cast your line and pray you beat the old bearded Scotsman’s previous record !
