This was our second visit to Sinclairs Dooars. It remains a great property and we had a great week again. The rooms and facilities are top class. Rooms are quite specious and have sit-out balconies which open to a small wood -- a place we enjoyed spending time among the silence and darkness of the forest after dinners. The service staff is very professional and courteous. Considering this property is spread over a large area, I must say there were never much delay in any service. Our visit was during Durga Puja of 2021, and the resort was full. But there were no slack in the services, which is much appreciated. The outdoors and pool areas are well maintained; and the spa services were quite good. During our earlier visit in 2013, there was a separate bar. Now the bar is part of the main restaurant, but there is a large outdoor setting area next to the lawn, and we enjoyed sundowners and dinners in this open space from where the view is quite spectacular. On Food: There is buffet for lunch and dinner, and offer a decent spread of pan-Indian and Chinese. We tried some continental à la carte too, the quality and quantity was very good. At the breakfast, and dinner the entire staff went out of the way to cater to the needs, specially Ms Sapna and Mr Mukesh (who attended to us all the time and made us feel at home.) A special thanks to Mr Balaram Toppo for his help and assistance for arranging medical facilities and personally taking us to the hospital late at night for an emergency. The vacation was wonderful and a big thanks to Team Sinclairs. Highly recommended, do visit

We recently stayed at Sinclairs Dooars. Our stay was excellent particularly because of the wonderful hospitality of the staff. Swapna at the Restaurant is terrific in her service with a smile. And the chauffeur Dipankar who drove us to the different tea gardens and villages nearby was fantastic.
