Once home to a famous jute magnate, The Elgin Silver Oaks in Kalimpong is a luxury boutique heritage resort in the Himalayas. With cosy interiors, classical piano tunes and exceptional staff ready to serve you at all hours, this hotel has a distinctively 'Old Raj' feel with present day comforts.

The hotel’s 25 guest rooms offer soothing views across the Himalayas and the Teesta river valley. Each spacious room features a subtly different interior, with wooden floors, rugs and even an open fire in some rooms. They all include en suite bathrooms with bathtub, shower and deluxe Elgin designer toiletries, plus complimentary wireless internet and a digital TV.

When it comes to dining, the Elgin chefs will surely win you over with a selection of delicious local Nepalese, Indian or Continental cuisine. Fresh bread, cakes and pastries are prepared in-house for breakfast. Step into the garden and sip the finest Darjeeling tea with views of the imposing Kanchenjunga, which can be seen on a clear day. In the cosy Tea Lounge and Bar, indulge in a fragrant tea or enjoy a whisky in front of the roaring fire surrounded by wonderful artworks and the tinkling of a grand piano.
