I visited this hotel for one night and haven't had a more disappointing experience. It was my friend's birthday and I requested the staff at the reception to arrange for a pastry/cake. They refused to do so with the reason that they don't have an in house patisserie and didn't ag

We had booked a poor hotel and quickly wanted to move out. The first luxury property that came to mind in that area was Sinclair.
This did not disappoint. Superb property with vast lawns, huge pools, a spa and lots of open spaces.

Quiet location, polite staff.

Ran into a set of very minor problems immediately like (a) Flush didn't work (but that was fixed soon enough) (b) Hall light was flickering (also got fixed immediately).

But ... when I asked for a bucket and mug, the hotel reception Staff said bu

A beautiful property in the middle of nature. Definitely one of the most outstanding resorts I have ever seen in my life. The only USB? It's nothing but nature and the way it is conserved here.
It's indeed a luxury hotel, but the room service, decor and maintenance are next to im

Dear Mr Anindya, Thank you for your review. Yes the resort is built as an eco-friendly destination where our guests can live with nature. In an expansive resort like ours, maintenance sometimes is a challenge but our endeavour is to continually spruce the property so that it remains in good condition. Also please appreciate that since the resort is spread over 20 acres, room service is a challenge. We always encourage our guests to have their meals in the restaurant. In fact, many of our guests enjoy the walk amidst an abundance of trees and foliage after a meal at the restaurant. We have briefed our team to be more responsive in serving our guests and also have taken a note of the shortcomings pointed out by you and assure you that these will be taken care of. We assure you that next time you visit us, you will experience the same hospitality that Sinclairs is famous for.

Dear Ms RoyChowdhury, Thank you for your review and the wonderful comments about our property , the variety of our food and the team members. The wi fi system has been laid out in the resort but in the absence of stable hi speed connectivity, we are unable to provide connectivity in all the rooms. The appreciation of our property and services is such a great motivation for the Sinclairs team. We look forward to welcoming you again at Sinclairs Retreat Dooars. We also invite you to visit our six other properties at Siliguri, Darjeeling, Kalimpong, Burdwan, Ooty and Port Blair. The Sinclairs team at these locations will ensure that you have a memorable experience.

We are planning to stay for 3 nights in October this year and have already booked the room. I would like to know if the Resort arranges for visits to the wildlife sanctuaries nearby and whether transportation is otherwise also easily available locally to arrange on our own.
To visit Gorumara and Chapramari Forests you can only hire vehicles authorised by Forest Department, which the Resort can arrange, similarly you can also directly book. As for private vehicles they are always available you need to bargain.

We want to visit your place with our spouse tomorrow i.e, 21/06/2015. kindly tell us the swimming charge and food quality with the rates,
They have buffet lunch and dinner if the no of tourists are high. The buffet rates were ard 600 Rs plus taxes as far as I can recollect. Ala carte menu also has varied choices at reasonable prices. The staff in the dining area go out of the way to please you, which enhances the pleasure. There are cycles on hire @ Rs 150 per hour. I dont think there are any charges for using the pool. However if you hire swimming costume that is chargeable.
