Wild Mahseer named after the well-known game fish, is set within the Balipara division of Addabarie Tea Estate, which was established by the British Assam Tea Company in 1864.
It is a collection of plantation bungalows set in 22 acres lush with vegetation, with old wide canopied trees, well maintained lawns, drive ways, bamboo thickets and the tea estate. Though the winter months are the best season to visit Balipara, monsoons are also a special time and present a misty and magical image of the estate.
Five independent bungalows and one cottage offer double bedrooms and suites with ensuite bathrooms, and are named after varieties of tea grown in the estate.
All the colonial era bungalows retain their vibe with large airy rooms, cosy intimate corners, vintage memorabilia and furniture from another era. Large, sunny and well-maintained gardens are a staple to all properties.
The cuisine at Wild Mahseer is a mix of Anglo Indian, Assamese and North Indian cuisines. Informal but hand-on cooking classes are organised in the bungalow kitchen with the help of the chefs on the estate.
