We went for a 3 night stay at the Chia kutir in June .. It’s the most awesome getaway from Kolkata . Just a one hour flight and an hours drive and you are amidst the clouds and nature . The hotel is so beautifully made . We went on a family holiday with my parents and we were really happy with the service . One of us had some gluten allergies and the Chefs took utmost care . A huge shout out to chef Milind and chef Parmatma for going out of the way to prepare exquisite meals for us . The restaurant staff specially Abhishek and Tiasha felt like family . We were so well looked after . There is so much to do in this place , a walk in the tea gardens every day , games room is great fun , tea tasting in the lobby , musical nights every evening . This is the perfect place to go for a short vacation. I will surely be back soon … In one word this property is AMAZING

Great location, refreshing stay for 6 days with family, did not feel the need to go out. all well managed by resort, helpful staff, great view from room, spent hours sipping great Darjeeling tea at balcony watching clouds coming from southern valley into the mountains and engulfing the green tea plantation in the mountains. Great food, Chia Verandah was great amidst nature overlooking Makaibari tea estate. Tea tasting, factory visit, trek, trail into tea estate were some of the great activities that is managed very well by the resort. Great tea lounge with option to buy authentic Makaibari tea. Overall Tajness at its best in this new property in the foothills of the Himalayas amidst the Queen of the Hills - Darjeeling ~ Debjit Mookherjee

Great people handling the F&B, room service, front desk and house keeping. They pamper you to the hilt. The property is on the edge of Makaibari tea plantation in Kurseong. A few photographs enclosed for viewing pleasure.

A slightly delayed review of Taj Chia. We visited the place at the peak of the 2nd wave of the pandemic. IT had all the safety requirements in place and were as warm in hospitality as has been the trademark of Taj. Of the 4 nights stay, we had the place to ourselves for 2 nights! The personalised service made it all the more special. We were upgraded to a valley facing room and the view alongwith the ambience was excellent. The tea trail was informative and fun. Would recommend it for anyone wanting a break from the crowds amidst a tea garden with the chirping of birds and beautiful views for company.
