The Glenburn Penthouse is a discrete, elegant residence in the heart of historic Kolkata, with spectacular views of all the city's iconic landmarks, from Victoria Memorial to Eden Gardens, the lush green expanse of the Maidan and the majestic bridges that cross the River Hooghly. The team behind Glenburn Tea Estate's boutique hotel in Darjeeling have carefully amassed an exquisite collection of antique Bengal colonial furniture and set of artworks to create a haven of quiet luxury above the bustling streets of the city of Kolkata. The Drawing and Dining Rooms are adorned with bespoke 'Hindoostan' wallpaper, designed in Paris, with scenes of rural India from bygone days. Leading off this gracious sitting room is a balcony and a Tea Verandah overlooking Victoria Memorial, perfect for outdoor dining, and where breakfast and afternoon tea are served during congenial weather. Each of the 9 spacious suites have a large sleeping area with antique four poster beds, enough desk and sitting space for 2 people to live and work comfortably and efficiently, in a soft, elegant ambiance, with lots of natural light. Easy-to-manoeuvre wooden shutters on all the windows allow for filtered shade during the hottest parts of the day, and reveal the spectacular views without the need for curtains or blinds. Collections of art that reflect the historical theme of the hotel fill walls with interesting stories and map out journeys taken by early travellers. Fine carpets adorn the wooden floors to add a touch of warmth, while the cool marble floors of the elegant hallways, dressing rooms and bathrooms provide a welcome respite from the heat. The large 'white-marble' bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs and walk-in showers, with lots of natural light and Glenburn Therapy Darjeeling Green Tea bath accessories.
