Silver Oaks Hotel Kalimpong India

Kalimpong - India.

Location

A member of the Elgin Heritage Group of Hotels at Kalimpong, District Darjeeling in the Himalayas. The Silver Oaks symbolizes an era gone by.

Lounging in the landscaped gardens in a riot of colours all year round, one is treated to a magnificent view. When the sky is clear, the imposing peaks of the Kanchenjunga range can be spotted past the rolling blue green hills, the bottom of one's frame of vision ablaze with blooming petunias and asters , the serrated violet edges of iris, iridescent butterflies fitting through multi-coloured azalias, drooping geraniums, proud orchids, lavender camilias…it is heaven on earth. The bracing mountain air adds to the flavours of Darjeeling tea that you sip, sitting in one of the quaint gazebos that dot the sloping gardens of The Silver Oaks.

The Silver Oaks is a legend and was built in 1930. Once the family home of a leading British Jute Magnate, Mr./Mrs. John Mason lived in Kalimpong for over 40 years. They loved Kalimpong and their dedicated contribution is prevalent. They left a landmark........ The Silver Oaks Today.

The property moved on to Mr. Frederick Desraj, a prominent architect of Old Kalimpong, one of the land marks being the old Teesta Bridge.

Finally The Silver Oaks was acquired by the The Elgin Heritage Hotels of the Himalayas. The restoration work took five years to complete.

Water colours and lithographs by old masters adorn the walls. Period furniture offer comfort as well as add to the old world opulence of the interiors.
