Come visit one of the oldest tea plantations in and around the hills of Darjeeling, East India. Ging Tea House offers the luxuries of a hotel while maintaining the warmth and comfort of a home.
The tea estate is a thirty-minute scenic drive from Darjeeling and a three hours drive from Siliguri. The uninterrupted stretch of 600 hectares at 3000 feet above sea level, the gardens promises a unique and memorable tea experience.
Spoil yourself with the luxurious bed teas, take a walk along the picturesque greenery and soak in the sunrise at Tiger Hill. Escape the hustle-bustle of ordinary city life to unwind and reconnect with nature.
Built in 1864, legend has it that The Tea House was one of the first colonial tea planters bungalows made in the region. The house which has been tastefully restored keeping its colonial heritage intact, is admirably classic in style.
This historic house is surrounded by beautiful well maintained private gardens. Inside, the tranquillity and atmosphere of a family home are all still intact. The rooms are royal, with old wooden flooring and exposed rafters on the high ceiling, complete with period furniture and drapes. Each suite comes with equally spacious bathrooms replete with all modern amenities. A front desk is open and staffed 24 hours a day. So you are well attended to at all times.
Step out into the gardens to relax in the gazebo or lounge on the sun deck, sipping morning tea in the company of the birds while gazing at the majestic Himalayan mountains. The location enjoys beautiful panoramic views and ample privacy. In the evening, gather around the ancient stone fireplace in the library with a glass of wine to listen to stories of life in the hills or try your hand at the antique piano.
The tea house nestled high up in the Lebong Valley is home to six differently styled suites each of which embraces the old world charm of the British Colonial times.
The tea house is packed with entertainment options if you would like to stay indoors.
Indulge in cue sports by playing a round of English billiards on our vintage table made in the early 90s or play Carom. You can also dig into a game of all-time favourite Scrabble / Chess, or play the Piano.
