This is classic British Raj stuff stunningly set before incredible Himalayan views. TIger Hill has a view of the Kanchendzonga that makes people gasp. A pot of Darjeeling tea in the balcony, a book and you'll forget it's 2016. Nothing has changed here. Gautam Biswas shares his experience, "The appearance of hotel kind of reminds you the British Era, the interior, furnitures and everything. The view around here is just breathtaking. You can even try out different kind of teas that are grown here. Must stay here if you ever go to Darjeeling."

2. Banyan Grove, Jorhat, Assam

Yes they were a royal pain but they certainly knew how to live the good life. Victorian interiors and old world customs. What's not to love? Yasmin Tavaria shares, "It is a converted tea estate manager's bungalow of the British Raj times so it is abounding in opulence. The rooms are amazing and make you feel like royalty. Service is superb and very personalised. There is a library, smoking room and huge verandah and beautiful green lawns in plenty to stroll around."

3. The Tea Sanctuary, Munnar, Kerala

The name is utterly perfect. It's a peaceful sanctuary...silent but for rustIing tea leaves. A colonial estate with refurbished bunglows in the middle of a seriously massive tea estate. Cool Guru Mrinalini Mitra says: "Setting is spectacular, rooms are as posh as Kate Middleton's Boudoir. Service is heart-warming as your family old faithful's. Views are speechless, best thing ever, this place totally cuts you off from Munnar's hustle bustle over tourist noise. Go to Munnar stay only here, grab a pot of Darjeeling, your favourite book, Kick back and Forget the world."

4. Tea Nest, Coonoor, Tamil Nadi
