The former home of a jute-magnate, today, the Silver Oaks at Kalimpong has been taken over by the prominent Elgin Group of Hotels and reconstructed into a luxurious boutique hotel. With a traditional structure and contemporary décor, the Silver Oaks preserves its heritage and is unarguably one of the best hotels overlooking the imposing peak of the Kanchenjunga.
Guests are treated to a fabulous Himalayan escapade, as they sip the best of Darjeeling’s tea in one of the many gazebos of the landscaped gardens on the hotels property, high above the beautiful valleys or admire the black and white lithographs that adorn the walls. The melody produced by the ancient piano is music to the ears and a gorgeous smell of food lingers in the dining rooms that serve multiple cuisines. Book lovers will be delighted by the gorgeous handpicked publications that are the pride of the library. A magnificent bar is also available and guests can either relax at the spa or attend a meeting while children are looked after at the activity-centre. With a 24-hour concierge and in-room dining, ultra-modern amenities and fitness facilities, no stay in the rugged mountains can be as luxurious and pleasant as one at the Silver Oaks.
