Tieedi Dwellings is our humble endeavour to rediscover our connect with nature. We have handcrafted a few abodes in our forest garden by working with the local artisans and applying the regenerative principles of permaculture. It is a blend of the age-old tradition of earth houses using local resources with the comforts and amenities of a holiday home. It is offbeat and may not be for everyone but if you believe that connecting with nature is a nourishment for your soul, this is the place for you.

I visited Tieedi with my 8yr old son for his birthday last month. I wanted to gift my son a place where luxury-living meets a noble cause. Tieedi truly lived upto its name! I am not only inspired but also flabbergasted at the fact how a tedious task of waste management is celebrated in the most humble manner here! It was overwhelming to see how all the waste management activities are practiced here along side my super cute and tastefully designed room full of artsy details in every corner. I love and embrace nature so waking up to the sounds of birds, smell of fresh rain, from my spotless linen, overlooking the tall dense trees has been such a treat that we ended up extending our trip to 10 days!! Every penny is worth spent here because I see it as my contribution towards the task of treating and preaching waste management. The staff became like family towards the last day. They took care of us like their own, calling and checking on us every now & then, serving and feeding with love & smiles. The whole idea of choosing Tieedi Forest was to experience nature in all its abundance. The flora of the forest will spellbound you! And the dogs, puppies and Sushi (the cat) will uplift you & make you forget your worries. Utsow, the founder, adds glamour to the forbidden task of waste management & the spirit of the forest makes this place “home”, truly nourishing! What I did not enjoy is my visit to the darjeeling market uphill and touristy things like toy train etc. It is super busy and full of so much pollution :( My most memorable moments are within & around the forest, meeting locals & taking the secret treks around. Ask the staff about them and you will love it!

This was my second time - I wanted my wife and kids to have a close rendezvous with nature. Escaping sultry summers, we had an escape to the hills and stayed at TIEEDI. The Founder and his team are just so warm and caring, one feels at home as soon as you step in after the drive from Siliguri. There are many hotels and other stay options in and around Darjeeling but you must choose TIEEDI if you want: 1. a relaxing close to nature stay 2. be on a holiday yet enjoy scrumptious, home cooked food 3. your kids to have unassisted fun with the various animals and varieties of plants around and 4. to meet awesome people working for the awesome cause.

The stay in Tieedi was one of it's kind and amazing. The sound healing workshop was something which took me to a different zone. This is a place everyone should visit. The people there are doing a great job promoting a sustainable way of living. Totally satisfied with the whole experience. The dwellings are very comfortable and the food is not only organic but tastes great too.

A weekend of our lives lead us to @tieedi_forest_garden ; a haven, a sanctuary, to whatever part of nature that dwells within. The dormitory smelled of burning wood, maato and wet forests. The air sounded of laughter, giggles, mischief and bonding. Our lips tasted like tongba, smokes, peanuts and boroline. And my heart felt like nostalgia, peace, contentment and longing. Time seemed to fly as we woke up to leave. But the desire of coming back to this part of Darjeeling is so strong.... Sooo very strong. Thankyou for allowing me, the most beautiful weekend in my hometown @tieedi_forest_garden .

Based on permaculture, its a sustainable homestay where everything is done keeping our mother nature in mind.. A very good initiative and i liked the idea behind.. If you are looking for luxury stay, then avoid this place.. The rooms are very basic and you have to hike for 10 to 15 mins before reaching your room.. But the experience of sleeping in the lap of mother nature is unforgettable.. The sound of waterfall from beside our room was very pleasing to hear..

We decided to go on a short vacation to the hills. We took a car and enjoyed the drive from Kolkata to Raigunj took a break and then next morning it was a long drive to the hills. We had seen the photograph of this resort in the internet and immediately our destination was final. TIDEE a eco resort cum homestay far from the hustle bustle. It was nature and its serenity which attracted us. When we reached Tidee a small gate on the turning of the road just a little more than 11 kms from Kurseong Tourist Lodge...very unassuming entrance which would reduce all expectations. But as soon as we entered it was a warm traditional welcome. The lovely kitchen and restaurant so aesthetically decorated that it made us feel at home. A perfect eco friendly homestay. The small garden at the entrance and the fantastic collection of succulents and flowers in pots stole our hearts away. We were still wondering where are the beautiful huts that we had seen on the internet while we booked Tidee.....to our surprise it was much more than we had expected. The stairs made out of stones and small boulders led us to the forest down the hill. As we were progressing the forest feel was getting more and more intense and we were overwhelmed. The staff was so friendly rather the Tidee family was full of warmth and it immediately made us their family member. The Air Dwelling A was a heaven on earth. The bed and decor of the room was so vibrant and tastefully done. So rustic yet so ethnic and contemporary. Everything around was so eco friendly that it looked like a separate world altogether where there is no space for pretention or fake emotions. If you want to connect to youself and with nature Tidee is the best place to stay in the hills. We would like to thank each and every person of our Tidee family. Utsow, Zaosh, Chhaya and Rakhi Didi. How can we forget the dogs 'Chungi' (Black Labrador) who showed us our way to the cottage in the dark at night and cute little Matoo who hovered around us. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and one can feel this when you are at Tidee. Susmita Basu Majumdar Sayantani Pal and Saikat Banerjee Kolkata

TIEEDI isn't just a place, it is an experience, a feeling, and an opportunity. When I came here, I was only looking for place to eat and sleep in. Instead, Utsow provided me with a home, members of which treated me like family. I planned to stay for 2-3 days but ended up spending more than 2 incredible weeks here. There is so much one can learn here about nature and themselves in it. You can volunteer to work with them and find joy in the simplicity of the life here. The rooms are cozy and comfortable. The food is delicious, made with love and always leaves you wanting for more. The pets are the spirit of the place, warm and friendly. I could go on and on. To fellow travelers, artists, and beautiful souls reading this - please do stop by and discover this serene forest treasure yourself. Love and peace y'all!

If there is a place you ever decide to go to, then let it be this one. No matter what phase of life you are in, a little bit of tieedi will do you so much good. It’s a little miracle in the forest waiting to enchant you. I wrote a little poem to put into words how truly heart warming my experience was and I am sure you will leave there feeling ever so poetic too ! A place between two worlds To feel a sense of belonging, in a way which isn’t rational, it’s unfamiliar and poetic. To know nothing of a place while at the same time feel like you know everything about it. Every day feels brand new. Wanting to jump out of your warm cozy bed at the break of dawn, to feel no exhaustion after being tired for so long, like an energy with a source unknown. To not tire of the food you eat, to sleeping a dreamless sleep. Flowing through these moments, brimming with possibilities, you find yourself become the need of a tiny little thing who needs some sleep, a tummy full of food and a heart full of love meet in the forest and find what’s enough. They dance in circles and sing little riddles. Saving each other in hugs, kisses and miracles. It’s a place where you find what you are looking for, even if it’s unknown to you, it will find from the depths of your swirling mind, not want you want but what you need. It may come as a surprise but do accept for it knows you better than your best. And in the end when you have what you need it will send you home with what to keep, and when you’re back safe and warm, You will think of a home away from home. You’ll long to find that place again walking under the shadow of trees, sunlight peeking, singing streams, chirping birds, swaying breeze, walking up sloping stones, and as the trees part the sun will shine, the path will lead to where you found A breath of fresh air, the warmth of care, of a loving home with a family of folks who smile and dance with furry friends, fruits & flowers, swinging hens and the hermit who lives to tell his tales of jungles and mountains and shamans and more, most are true and while some are you know….. ;) But like a tree he grounds himself takes the dark and makes it bright. His place is a place between your two worlds, you come as one and leave as whole. The Forest garden will live on to change the world for those who want, it will be there when you need to come and find yourself all over again.

I’ve visited Tieedi twice within a span of 3 months, all the way from Bombay. And it’s safe to say that one can’t have enough of this place. The beautiful forest, the sound of the stream, the soulfully prepared food, the beautifully curated dwellings, the warm, welcoming people, Chungi & Koko (the doggos) and most of all the amazing work they do as a community is an inspiration. Thank you for such a warm welcome every time and making me and my friends feel right at home.
