West Bengal has slowly been building up her wares in terms of tourist facilities that will enable more and more tourists to explore this land, and Saraswatipur Tea Resort seems a worthy addition.
The North Bengal region is possibly the richest the state has to offer in terms of natural beauty and tourist attractions. The humble tea bush encapsulates the feel of the region, a slice of its rich history and last but not least, its importance to the state’s economy.
Generally when we talk about tea estates, the vision that comes to the mind is about a place with a fascinating landscape. It is amazing that in reality, some are situated in breathtaking locations surrounded by dense woods, babbling rivers and having a sizeable treasure of flora and fauna.
Saraswatipur Tea Resort which is located inside the Baikunthapur Forest beside the Teesta River has a similar fairytale like setting.
This resort is the first tea tourism related venture for Saraswatipur Tea & Industries Limited, which is owned by the Kalyani family.
The picturesque luxury tea resort is being set up within the perimeter of the over 100 year old Saraswatipur Tea Estate which was founded by Late Sitaram Kalyani.
The present owner Mr. Kishen Kalyani who is very upbeat about the project says that two new bungalows are being built adjacent to the existing century old bungalow. Expected to be completed by August, 2018, each of the bungalows will have 4 (four) Double-Bedrooms with facilities such as a Restaurant, Bar and Coffee Shop along with a Gymnasium, Game-Room, a well-stocked Library and a small Conference Room.
