The structure was what seems to be standard for the Assam area in the 1020s to 1930s – wood-framed walls and ceilings with asbestos panels, and corrugated iron roofs, with small turrets with windows for lighting and ventilation.
This place was originally built to house the tea estate manager but was later converted to an easy getaway from city life. Keeping its character intact, each bedroom is equipped with a fireplace, a private dining, a kitchenette and a common sitting room. All rooms have high ceilings, sloped roofs and verandas. The architectural design of the place will truly make you feel like you have travelled back to the 1900s! Staying in the midst of the expansive estate will not only soothe your senses but also replenish your mind and body with the variety of teas served.
The very old and big banyan tree that rests here is an ideal spot for meditation, reading or simply sitting and day-dreaming. You can just laze around doing nothing or gear up for a variety of activities – whatever suits your mood!
The Tea Affair offers a delectable variety of Continental, Chinese and Indian cuisines. But the most exciting part of their wide ranged menu is the traditional, authentic North Eastern delicacies.
They usually follow a scheme of European breakfast, Indian lunch and North- Eastern dinner, but exceptions can be made and requests can be taken by the restaurant staff.
