Built in 1862, Singtom Tea Estate & Resort is the world's oldest tea estate-resort. Located only 20 minutes away from Darjeeling, we welcome guests from all over the world to enjoy our hospitality, experience tea tourism at its roots, gaze at the Kanchenjunga, and have Darjeeling's finest, freshest teas. Singtom is the only destination in India where you can walk all day through 1,600 acres of private estate, and then return to luxury at night... all at an affordable price!

Mekân
Started by Joachim Stoelke, a German priest, in 1854, Singtom Tea Estate is Darjeeling’s 2nd oldest tea estate. Stoelke also planted Darjeeling’s first tea estate, called Steinthal Tea Estate, in 1852. He was fondly known as ‘Father Steinthal’ as a result. Father Steinthal discovered that the forests in the Singtom area were an abode of lions, and used to make the short hike from Darjeeling to Singtom to spot lions. When he planted the first tea bushes at Singtom, the locals named the area ‘Singtam’, which meant the house of lions in the local language. Father Steinthal’s co-ownership of both estates led to Singtom and Steinthal being considered sister tea estates. The two estates are right next to each other, with Darjeeling town in between. Father Steinthal planted the two estates in their current locations because he loved the majestic view of the Kanchenjunga mountain range (of course, the mountains were named much later, but they looked breathtaking nonetheless) from both areas!

From 1854 onwards, the estate’s ownership changed hands several times, but has now been with the Chirimar family, one of India’s oldest tea planting families, for several decades.

Misafir erişimi
360 Point Picnic: The 360 Point gives visitors a 360º view of all the natural beauty that surrounds the resort. One can see more than 60 Himalayan peaks, the undulating hills of Nepal, the whole of Darjeeling town, vast valleys, several tea factories, waterfalls, and a variety of flora and fauna from this spot. On a bright sunny day (only), we arrange for lunch at this spot. We also arrange trips here to see sunrise (the sunrise trips are complimentary, unlike the actual picnics).

Cost: Rs. 2,000 per head.

Tea Factory Tour: We are excited to offer our guests the chance to witness the processes that give us tea as we see it in our cups. Each guest is shown how tea is withered, rolled, steamed, fermented, dried and sorted. Each such session lasts between 1–2 hours, depending on the size of the touring group. This tour takes place without operating machines in winter, as no tea is produced during that time, while it takes place with operating during the rest of the year, which is when tea is produced. Furthermore, guests must note that this tour happens early in the morning (usually between 6-8 AM).

Cost: Rs. 2000 per head during the tea production season and Rs. 1000 per head during the off-season for tea production.

Tea Tasting Tour: Get a first hand experience of tasting the finest Darjeeling teas, as well teas from all other tea-growing regions in India, at our tea tasting session. We teach guests taught how to taste tea, and how to differentiate between different types of teas. The tour comprises 8 different teas, each brewed in 2 different ways, making for a holistic, 16-tea tour experience. Teas of all types, all flushes, all regions, and all tastes are chosen.

Cost: Rs. 1000 per head.

Tea Plucking Tour: Go out into the tea fields and immerse yourself in the beauty of Darjeeling’s oldest plantations. Not only do guests get to enjoy the breathtaking views on offer, but they also get the opportunity to learn how tea is plucked.

Cost: Rs. 1000 per head.

Trekking Tour: There are 4 trekking paths that are part of the resort area, covering a 1600-acre stretch of land with 22 kilometres of walking distance. Each trekking path offers breathtaking views of the great Himalayan peaks, including the Kanchenjunga, along with other waterfalls, forests, etc. Guests have the option to take a local guide along with a picnic basket, so that they can take a break and enjoy fresh snacks.

Cost: Rs. 1000 per head.

Darjeeling Sightseeing: Located 20 minutes away, Darjeeling town hosts a variety of attractions that a tourist should explore. Guests should inform the resort manager at least 1 night in advance if they want to avail of this service.

Cost:
- Rs. 3,000 for a 4-hour chauffeur-driven car rental. Overtime charges apply.
- Rs. 1,000 per car for a one-way transfer to/from Darjeeling.

Other Activities: Singtom’s cozy setting makes for a great place read some great books (we have several books on tea, Darjeeling and India) and play board games (Monopoly is an in-house favourite, along with Scotland Yard) or cards. Furthermore, we also have a badminton court and a lawn on which you can play some mini-golf.
