Amidst the typically Assamese village of Jalukonibari, stands the 72 year old Thengal Manor in Jorhat. Thengal offers you the unique pleasure of gracious living in the lap of nature. Plush suites of single and double bedrooms with baths and dressing rooms attached. In addition there is a sitting room, dining room, lounge. kitchen and pantry. Feel the ambiance of colonial days as you relax in the period furniture and decor. A sense of dejavu pervades when you realize that this was the lifestyle of pioneering Assam planters.

We went for a short outing to Thengal Manor in Sep'21. The entry fees was 150 per head and does not include any complimentary tea or snacks. There are rooms for guests to stay and some rooms open for outside visitors, which houses many antiques. There is a swimming pool at the entry and huge area to roam around. We went for tea and light snacks , but you can also avail lunch there. Overall, good place near Jorhat to spend few hours.

Thengal Manor is home to the affluent and illustrious Khongiya Barooah family. Their contribution to Assamese society is immense on economic and cultural front. Some of their properties have been converted into Heritage boutique hotels Thengal Manor being one of these. The very first daily newspaper in Assamese, ‘Dainik Batori’ was launched on 12th August 1935 from this historic place. Located in a village named Jalukonibari, merely 15 km away from the town of Jorhat, it looks regal with a beautiful lawn and swimming pool at the front. Once we entered inside I was overwhelmed by the magnificence – the architecture, the furniture, the antique showpieces, paintings, picture gallery. We could not see the suits as these were all occupied. There is a beautiful Namghar also in the campus. After exploring the premises to our heart’s content, we availed the Sunday Buffet lunch which was quite nice.

We stayed at the Thengal Manor at the end of an ardous two week tour of Nagaland and it was a welcome taste of luxury. Well appointed wth beautifully decorated interiors this hotel is a real pleasure. The dinner and breakfast were excellent as was the service, the staff could not do enough for us. Others have wirtten about the architecture which while not spectacular is pleasingly heritage in nature. A proper 'boutique' hotel and well worth a visit if you are in the area.

A delightful mansion, built in 1929 by the wealthy son of an important 19th century tea planter. Yes, it's old fashioned in style and showing its age in places, but that is its charm. You drive up to a huge portico with a verandah where you can sip your tea, and inside there's a delightful drawing room with antiques and knick knacks. Our room (room 3) was huge - about 40 square metres - with a very large en suite, but despite being old fashioned, it had a good hot water supply and a modern shower that worked well. Outside there is a swimming pool, and behind the house a curious but interesting family mausoleum. Dinner was a set menu, but it included plenty of variety and was of very good quality. The service was excellent too.

We had our engagement ceremony in Thengal Manor which is constructed is 1929 with four double delux rooms and one single superior room with all kinds of colonial comfort and is one of the finest heritage sites in India.I am glad that we chose this place for our special day.Organisers and hospitality staff along with a cook with culinary authenticity made the event perfect.For someone who is in love with the nature ,then this bunglow amidst nature with a colonial architecture,period furniture and decor,a large veranda facing a beautiful lawn with a swimming pool,surrounded by all kinds of fruit trees and flower plants and a namghor (assamese prayer house) is perfect for a luxurious holiday .The fully air conditioned rooms with an old fashioned ceiling fan,a fireplace,a large dressing room and an antique wooden bed takes you to the glorious colonial days of Assam.Make this place your home for 1 or 2 nights and experience the royal lifestyle of tea plant managers from the British era.I totally recommend this place for destination wedding,engagement and parties.It is situated in Jalukonibari,Titabor which is around 10kms from Jorhat town.

When we checked in we were told that the first Assamese newspaper was published from here in the early 20th century! That sums up the place. Steeped in the local history, combining it with traditional hospitality. One must ask for the local Assamese cuisine (especially the duck and the fish) when you dine here. The rooms are good, the staff friendly and the grounds are well maintained. Another small tip is the Hollongapar Gibbon Sanctuary that's a 40 minute drive away. You get to see the rare Gibbon here and the jungle walk is great fun.

We stayed here for one night en route to the ferry for Majuli Island. After a very long day's drive from Kohima, Thengal Manor was like reaching paradise. We were greeted on arrival with a welcome cool drink and shown to our large rooms. They were well furnished with sofas and desk. In the room we were provided with two hot water bottles, a fan heater, a hair dryer and tea making facilities. WiFi was also available at no extra charge. The bed was comfortable. My only quibble was that the fan heater only blew out cold air which added to the low temperature in the room. The bathroom was spacious with modern fittings. We ate supper in the attractive dining room. It was the best meal we had had up to that point - three courses and delicious. The whole hotel is a delight to the eye. As we had an early ferry to catch the hotel provided us with picnic breakfast, which was good.
