Enjoy a restful layover at the luxurious Taj Kolkata, conveniently located near the airport, where you will return the following morning to fly to Jorhat, the tea capital of India. Kolkata’s satellite city, New Town, is situated north of the Bay of Bengal and east of the Hooghly River and sets a national precedent for coexisting with nature. As one of only four other cities in the country to be awarded the ‘Platinum-Rated Green City Certificate’ by the Indian Green Building Council, New Town is a revitalizing retreat within the urban jungle. Take in the story of the city through the hotel’s local artwork, handwoven fabrics and warm wooden features. Old-world architecture is complemented by modern comforts, including award-winning restaurants and an infinity pool that cascades over the bustling center. Guests seeking rejuvenation can recline under an umbrella of palm trees or indulge in a traditional aromatherapy massage at the JIVA Spa.
Time permitting, explore one of the largest open spaces in the area is just under two miles from the hotel. Covering 500 acres, Eco Park is a self-sustaining ecosystem that serves as a “living classroom” for the surrounding community. Stroll down the Lake Front Promenade, watch pollinators hatch from their cocoons in the butterfly garden, and take in the scents of Bengali native plantlife in the fruit, herb and tea gardens. The park’s wetland habitat harbors the Pakhi Bitan sanctuary, the perfect setting to practice birdwatching before continuing our adventure to Kaziranga National Park.
